3 questions to learn if your baby's gut is healthy.
Not all baby probiotics are created equal, and this is where Evivo infant probiotics differ from other probiotics for babies.
B. infantis, the key Bifidobacterium strain, is vital in building a strong foundation of good bacteria for your healthy baby. The presence of B. infantis reduces potentially harmful bacteria by 80%—especially those linked to a higher risk for conditions like colic, eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.10
Our founders and scientists are world-renowned experts in the infant gut microbiome and its critical interaction with human breast milk. Over a decade of research and clinical trials at The University of California led to the important discovery that the nutrients in breast milk that have evolved over millions of years to become the perfect prebiotic, or food, for B. infantis, the key good gut bacteria in Evivo.16
This research concluded that only one bacteria—the B. infantis in Evivo—takes advantage of this unique relationship. The amazing breast milk nutrients, Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs), feed B. infantis in Evivo, and the B. infantis transforms the HMOs into valuable nutrition for your baby. Without B. infantis as much as 15% of the nutrients in your breast milk will be wasted in your baby's diaper. 8, 12
Given B. infantis' important relationship with these HMOs, a baby receiving breast milk receives full benefit from Evivo. Exclusively formula fed babies may also consume Evivo. However, without the important HMOs in breast milk, babies may not receive the full benefits from Evivo if they are exclusively consuming formula.
The first 6 months of a baby’s life contain many critical developmental milestones. The presence of B. infantis is important during these crucial early months of life when baby’s metabolism and immune system are developing.13, 31 Why this important? It improves and protects baby’s gut microbiome.
Historically, Bifidobacteria dominated the baby's gut microbiome. The baby gut is closest to its original, natural state when this good bacteria is present and working to keep many other strains of harmful bacteria from growing.
Unfortunately, due to modern medical practices and lifestyles, the vast majority (9 out of 10) 2,16 of American babies no longer receive B. infantis at birth.
And that’s why moms like you want to find a way to restore the good bacteria B. infantis to your baby’s gut right from the start with Evivo, the best baby probiotic so that yours can be a healthy baby from Day 1.

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 trillions 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 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 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 the key good bacteria, B. infantis, in their gut compared to babies who didn’t receive any Evivo. This good bacteria is critical for proper immune system and metabolic development during the first six months of life.
