Leveraging the microbiome for better health

Through our deep scientific understanding of the gut microbiome and nutrition during the earliest stages of life, we uncover bacterial strains foundational to human health.

Our Scientific Focus

The once-in-a-lifetime window of opportunity

We believe that by focusing our science on the short, but vital, time of rapid immune, cognitive and microbiome development, we can have the greatest opportunity to impact future health.

The gut microbiome for good health

How the gut microbiome is established can impact whether a human is prone to good health or disease over the course of their life. Interconnected with the entire body, it exerts powerful influence.

Nature-intended synergies for human health

Our science aims to uncover natural synergies between bacterial strains and the human diet to support people along their development journey, starting with breast milk, and as they expand into other nutritional sources.

Our Strain: B. infantis EVC001

The single strain that matters for infants.

B. infantis EVC001 has a powerful synergy with breast milk

The confirmation
Research confirms breast milk promotes the growth of B. infantis EVC001. By utilizing Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs) in breast milk, B. infantis EVC001 colonizes (replicates and persists) in the infant gut.

Why it matters
Unlike other probiotic strains, B. infantis EVC001 does not pass through but maintains a powerful presence in the gut. To date, no other clinical study has demonstrated a substantial and persistent beneficial change in the gut microbiome.

B. infantis EVC001 Sepia

B. infantis EVC001 establishes a protective infant gut microbiome

The power of synergy
When breast milk promotes the growth of B. infantis EVC001, it creates a protective environment restrictive to harmful bacteria.

Why it matters.
An overabundance of harmful bacteria has been linked to short-term issues like colic and diaper rash as well as long-term conditions such as food allergies, type 1 diabetes, and eczema.

B. infantis EVC001 helps support healthy immune system function

The right signals
B. infantis EVC001 converts HMOs into key signaling molecules called metabolites that help guide healthy immune system function.

Why it matters
Recent research shows that these metabolites promote healthy gut function and help educate immune cells not to become cells that would overreact to allergens,

B. infantis has almost disappeared in the U.S.

The big issue
Research shows B. infantis is missing in more than 90% of infants born in the U.S. where high antibiotic use and modern feeding and birthing practices are prevalent.

Why it matters
Countries like the US, with low prevalence of B. infantis, show higher incidences of atopic and autoimmune diseases. While research shows populations with higher prevalence of B. infantis have lower incidences for immune-mediated diseases.
