3 questions to learn if your baby's gut is healthy.
by Dr. Pari, MD
Many moms start worrying about their babies health before their baby is even born. They want to start doing what they can as soon as possible to make sure their baby is happy and healthy. One of the ways you can ensure that your baby is healthy is by making sure your baby has a healthy gut. You can start helping with this as soon as your baby is born.
An unhealthy gut has been linked to colic, obesity, diabetes, allergies, and asthma.
There is a certain bacteria named Bifidobacterium, (B. infantis) that has been found in the gut of babies. We know that babies with a high level of this bacteria have a lower risk of obesity, asthma, allergies, diabetes, and colic. A baby usually obtains this bacteria through exposure to the mom's intestinal tract during a vaginal delivery. The problem is that in industrialized countries we are seeing less of this bacteria in our babies’ intestinal tracts. This is likely because of an increase in cesarean sections and use of antibiotics by mom.

Evivo is the only probiotic clinically proven to restore the good bacteria, B. infantis, while reducing the bad bacteria in baby’s gut by 80%... Read more on Dr. Pari MD
