3 questions to learn if your baby's gut is healthy.
Research on the gut microbiome has led to the identification of hundreds of types of bacteria, some of which are sold as probiotics for your baby. However, not all probiotics work the same and it's important to choose the right one.
Only Evivo contains B. infantis EVC001, the strain that is clinically proven to create a protective environment in baby's gut. Paired with breastmilk, this uniquely adapted strain thrives in your baby's gut, rapidly populating it to crowd out the bad bacteria — especially those linked to a higher risk for conditions like colic, eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.10 Evivo is activated and able to use breastmilk better than any other probiotic bacteria, providing noticeable benefits within days.
Based on the discoveries by our founders at The University of California, Davis, scientists now understand that nutrients in breast milk not only feed your baby but also feed bacteria in your baby's gut microbiome.16
Breast milk contains all the nutrients baby needs for growth and development in the first 6 months in life. However, a major portion of the nutrients in breast milk, Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs), are indigestible by your baby without the help of B. infantis. In fact, without B. infantis as much as 15% of the nutrients in your breast milk are wasted in your baby's diaper. 8, 12
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 is this important? Feeding Evivo along with breastmilk during the first 6 months of life is a key component to establishing a healthy infant gut microbiome — setting a foundation for lifelong health.47
Historically, Bifidobacteria such as B. infantis dominated the baby's gut microbiome. When B. infantis is present, it works to keep many other strains of harmful bacteria from growing.
Unfortunately, due to modern medical practices such as antibiotic use and c-sections, the vast majority (9 out of 10) 2,16 of babies in the US no longer have this bacteria in their gut microbiome.
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 only baby probiotic that is clinically proven to effectively and efficiently restore B. infantis to baby's gut and push out the bad bacteria, the key to setting a foundation for lifelong health.

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.
