ProVen Probiotics Baby Probiotic for Breast-Fed Babies has been developed specifically for newborn babies up to 12 months of age. It contains friendly bacteria which naturally form part of the population of microflora population of infants.
It is now recognised that healthy bacteria are just as important to the newborn baby as to adults and that the establishment of a robust population of friendly microflora as soon after birth as possible is critical in driving the development of a healthy immune and intestinal function. However, it is now acknowledged that modern living conditions, particularly for the newborn baby, may inhibit or slow down the natural development of the normal flora, and that this process needs a ‘boost` to help intestinal and immune health.
ProVen is one of the world’s most respected producers of probiotics. The strains used in ProVen Probiotics were originally isolated from the gut microbiota of healthy humans and screened for appropriate characteristics and safety. These strains are naturally present in our intestines, but their numbers can be reduced due to the stresses of our modern lifestyle.
The stomach is an acidic environment and friendly bacteria need to be able to survive this to reach the microbiota in the intestines. ProVen Probiotics are held in suspension in their various formats until they reach the stomach.
