Introducing Evivo. The first and only baby probiotic of its kind. Evivo contains the good bacteria B. infantis, which fully utilizes breast milk to protect baby's gut from potentially harmful bacteria linked to higher risk of colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity.
For many thousands of years, the good bacteria in Evivo passed from mom to baby during childbirth. Unfortunately, C-section delivery interrupts this transfer, and antibiotics hurt good bacteria along with the bad. Across generations, use of these important medical practices means that most moms no longer have this vital bacteria to pass along to their babies.
Evivo restores this good bacteria and provides the gut protection babies need.
15 years of research at the University of California discovered that 15% of the nutrients in breast milk can’t be digested by baby. Instead, they are there to feed B. infantis, which creates a protective environment in baby’s gut. B. infantis evolved to utilize these nutrients better than any other bacteria – and put them to work.
Evivo is an activated B. infantis, which means it is ready to work for your baby.
Our clinical trial, conducted with The University of California Medical Center, successfully demonstrated full restoration of baby’s gut microbiome. In the research, babies given Evivo saw an unprecedented 80% reduction in potentially harmful bacteria such as E. coli, clostridia, Staph and Strep.
The results have been presented at several major international medical conferences and published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Evivo is clinically proven to restore baby’s gut microbiome to a natural and protective state.

Evivo was created by world-renowned experts in the infant gut microbiome and its critical interaction with human breast milk. Their research and clinical trials at The University of California spanned more than a decade. These scientists discovered that the nutrients in breast milk have evolved over millions of years to become the perfect nutrition for B. infantis, the key good gut bacteria for babies.
“The Infant Microbiota and Probiotic Intake (IMPRINT) Study: Safety and Tolerability of Consuming Bifidobacterium longum subspecies infantis in Exclusively Breastfed Term Infants”.
12/6/2017 — The bacteria in Evivo, Bifidobacterium longum subsp. infantis (B. infantis) is the critically important bacteria in baby’s gut microbiome early in life. It helps to program metabolism and the immune system and supports the complete digestion of nutrients.
Unfortunately, due to generations of modern medical practices such as antibiotics and C-sections, most babies no longer acquire B. infantis early in life. Without it, potentially harmful bacteria thrive which have been linked to higher risk of colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity. To date, probiotics have focused on general gut health and digestion, but until now had not demonstrated the ability to reduce potentially harmful bacteria.
In a controlled clinical trial led by University of California, Davis Medical Center, breastfed babies were given Evivo (activated B. infantis EVC001) once a day and compared to a similar group of babies who did not receive Evivo. This study showed the first-ever restoration of the baby gut microbiome via Evivo. Babies given Evivo saw a 79% increase in bifidobacteria. These Evivo babies also experienced an unprecedented 80% reduction of groups of potentially harmful bacteria such as E. coli, clostridia, Staphylococcus (Staph), and Streptococcus (Strep), which have been linked to disease later in life. Finally, across all babies in the study, those high in bifidobacteria had four times lower levels of endotoxin, a compound known to cause inflammation.
In summary, providing Evivo to babies in this clinical study completely restored the naturally protective gut microbiome in 100% of breastfed babies and significantly reduced potentially harmful groups of bacteria compared to babies who didn’t receive Evivo.

One key beneficial bacteria is designed by nature to live in babies’ gut, and thrive in the presence of human breast milk: Bifidobacterium (including B. infantis). In fact, the higher the levels of Bifidobacterium in baby’s gut early in life reduces the amount of potentially harmful bacteria which are linked later in life to a higher risk of many conditions like colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity. In this recent clinical trial led by The University of California, breast fed babies were given Evivo (activated B. infantis) once a day for a month and were compared to breast fed babies who didn’t receive any probiotic. After a month, Evivo babies had significantly higher levels of total Bifidobacterium in their gut compared to babies who didn’t receive Evivo. This once-daily probiotic is clinically proven to restore Bifidobacterium to baby’s gut and reduce the amount of potentially harmful bacteria. It’s the first and only baby probiotic of its kind to help establish the foundation of lifelong well-being.

Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) are special carbohydrates that are food for baby’s gut bacteria. One key beneficial bacteria, B. infantis, is unique and able to capture all these carbohydrates that might otherwise be wasted, consuming them fully allowing B. infantis to grow and protect baby’s gut, and convert them into essential nutrients that are critical for baby’s developing metabolism and immune system.
Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria that help keep your gut microbiome healthy. Historically, probiotics have been taken with the hope to relieve symptoms such as gas, bloating, or other digestive issues. However, new research has found that gut health is connected to other conditions such as colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity and may have a much larger impact on overall health, beyond only symptomatic relief.
Prebiotics are carbohydrates that cannot be digested by the human body. Instead, they are ‘food’ for the gut microbiome. For babies, the most important prebiotics are found in breast milk and are called Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs). HMOs are the third most abundant nutrient in breast milk and are critical to ‘feed’ good bacteria in baby’s gut.
A gut microbiome is a collection of microorganisms, or bacteria, that live in our intestines, or gut.
By nature’s design, beneficial and protective bacteria are passed from mom to baby during the messy birthing process, creating baby’s unique gut microbiome. However, the unintended consequences of modern medical practices such as antibiotics, c-sections, and formula feeding have led to a decrease in this mom to baby transfer.
In collaboration with the University of California Medical Center, we completed a clinical trial in which breast fed babies were given Evivo (activated B. infantis) once a day for a month and were compared to breast fed babies who didn’t receive any probiotic. After a month, Evivo babies had significantly higher levels of total Bifidobacterium in their gut compared to babies who didn’t receive any Evivo.
There are many different types of bacteria that can live in baby’s gut. However, Bifidobacterium is the only type designed by nature to thrive on breast milk and provide the most benefit to baby. In fact, the higher the levels of Bifidobacterium in baby’s gut, the lower the levels of potentially harmful bacteria which are linked to risk of colic, eczema, allergies, diabetes, and obesity.
