3 questions to learn if your baby's gut is healthy.
Maybe you’re aware of probiotics and the role they play in your health, but did you know that there’s a need for infant probiotics, too? There’s a sea of probiotics out there, and most of them look like the rest. To help you understand which probiotic is right for your baby, let’s take a closer look at what an infant probiotic should be: live bacteria, microorganisms which live in the infant intestine to protect baby’s gut and control the bad bacteria.
Despite the sleepless nights and what seems like endless feedings, the first 6 months of baby’s life will fly by faster than you think. Should infant probiotics be a part of this early stage for baby? Before we answer that, it’s critical that you understand how important this time is to baby’s developing immune system and metabolism, and how infant probiotics fit in. A LOT of important stuff is happening in baby’s gut at this time, and the balance of good and bad bacteria in baby’s gut can greatly impact baby’s health now and for many years to come.
When babies are born, they receive their first gut bacteria from their moms. These bacteria grow into a community in baby’s gut. We call them the infant gut microbiome, and nature has designed a process where mom transfers one particularly important good bacteria to baby: B. infantis. Unfortunately, due to the widespread use of antibiotics and C-sections, the vast majority of babies are not receiving this important strain of good bacteria from their moms, and it is then missing in baby’s microbiome.
If babies are missing this key bacteria, can infant probiotics help? Scientists at the University of California, Davis discovered that B. infantis is THE key player in baby gut health, helping build a strong immune system by crowding out the bad bacteria linked to eczema, colic, allergies, diabetes and obesity. If babies are missing this bacteria, a probiotic that contains activated B. infantis – available exclusively in Evivo - is the answer.
When you’re searching for infant probiotics, it might be easy to get overwhelmed and confused. Many companies claim to be able to work wonders for your baby. But among all the infant probiotics out there, only one is clinically proven to restore what’s missing in your baby’s gut, the good bacteria B. infantis.
B. infantis is the only strain of bacteria that can consume all the special carbohydrates in breastmilk that are otherwise indigestible by baby. B. infantis converts them into nutrients your baby needs during the critical time of baby’s first six months. By crowding out the harmful bacteria in baby’s gut, B. infantis can thrive, dominate and protect baby’s gut. And because this is such a critical time in baby’s developing immune system and metabolism, baby receives the benefits of this protection to set baby up for lifelong health.
Evivo is activated B. infantis. It’s that simple. Clinically proven Evivo restores baby’s gut to its original state. It works with breast milk to digest special nutrients and reduces bad gut bacteria by 80%. So, save yourself the time of searching through countless infant probiotics. Give your baby the only infant probiotic that’s been proven to work. Evivo.
The past several decades have seen a significant increase in infant gut dysbiosis, along with a rapid rise in the incidence of eczema, allergies, obesity, and diabetes.10, 15, 33 Research indicate these two events may be related—and solving gut dysbiosis can make an impact.
However, choosing an effective probiotic for your baby requires selecting the right bacterial strain, in combination with the right food source, given at the right time in your baby's development. Evivo® (activated B. infantis EVC001, Actibif®) in combination with breastmilk, is clinically proven to effectively reduce the bad bacteria and replace it with the good bacteria baby needs.

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.
