As with adults, infants’ gut bacteria are less diverse than
ever, which may play a role in disease progression later in life.
C-sections and antibiotics may be partly to blame.
By the time an individual reaches adulthood, their body hosts
between 500 and 1,000 different species of gut bacteria.
The study is the largest to date to look at the widespread
deficiency, but here's why parents shouldn't panic.
The gut microbiome is more malleable in the first two years
after birth, allowing probiotics to make their mark. Can we exploit
this to improve infants’ health?
There’s one big problem, though: The bacteria has largely
disappeared in American babies.
If baby is pooping too little or too much and its appearance is
outside the norm, it’s important for parents to understand why this
Could probiotics help to reduce antibiotic-resistant germs in
the intestines of breastfed newborns? The Doctors are joined by
Researchers at UC Davis say they were able to dramatically
reduce the number of antibiotic-resistant germs in breast-fed
newborns’ intestines by giving them a daily dose of Evivo during
their first mo
B infantis supplementation is an easy and
safe option for reducing antibiotic resistance genes
(ARGs), with no side effects, propensity to trigger additional
The connection between breast milk and baby's gut development is
fascinating. Take the time to watch this BBC feature with Evivo's
co-founder Dr. Bruce German and prepare to be amazed!

According to research conducted by Statistica in 2016, 72% of
consumers in US believe their eating habit is important to good

Mothers in any mammalian species are crucial for the growth and
survival of their offspring, but recent studies show that human
moms support the growth of not only their infants but possibly even
another species – bacteria in
When Melisa Martinez's son, Juelz, was born very prematurely at
25 weeks back in January, doctors at University of California,
Davis Children's Hospital gave him probiotics.
Childbirth is messy and some aspects are more dreaded than
The microbiome—the collection of bacteria and other microbes
that reside in our bodies and on our skin—has huge potential. Over
the past decade or so, we’ve found that our microbial makeup
influences everything from acne to food allergies, obesity, and
Most of us do our best not to think too much about baby poop.
But, as it turns out, stool has a lot more power than we think—and
not just in terms of its pungent smell. Our poops can say a lot
about our health, and that’s true from the first time we soil a
Within a few weeks of being born, a baby is host to a community
of billions of bacteria, viruses and fungi — most of which are
found in the gut — that can shape many aspects of health. How that
community, or microbiota, assembles is a matter of debate: some
researchers have begun to question the dogma that the womb is a
sterile environment. Yet it’s clear that birth sets off a radical
transformation of the infant gut.
Capital Public Radio's new health reporter Sammy
Caiola makes her debut on Insight to talk about new
research from UC Davis on how breast milk plays an essential
role in balancing bacteria in a newborn's gut microbiome.
The Foods for Health Institute, at the University of California,
Davis, has the appearance of a Tuscan villa, its terra-cotta-walled
buildings overlooking a large vineyard and a garden that bursts
with summer vegetables. It is led by a chemist named Bruce German,
and if there were a world title in extolling the virtues of milk he
would surely hold it.
