Paradox of Breast Milk.
Why are there ingredients in breast milk that your baby can’t digest?
Of course, breast milk is the optimal nutrition for baby, yet until recently it’s been unclear why breast milk’s third most abundant nutrient is indigestible. 26
Our founders, world-renowned experts in the infant gut microbiome and its critical interaction with human breast milk, set out to solve this question, the paradox of breast milk.
The results of over a decade of research and clinical trials at The University of California created Evivo. Our scientists discovered that these nutrients in breast milk, or prebiotics, have evolved over millions of years to become the perfect nutrition for B. infantis, the key good gut bacteria.16 B. infantis is critical during the crucial early months of life when baby’s metabolism and immune system are developing.13,31 Why is this important? It improves and protects baby’s gut microbiome. (Good job, B. infantis!)
These amazing breast milk nutrients, Human Milk Oligosaccharides (HMOs), feed B. infantis, and B. infantis returns the favor by transforming the HMOs so they can serve as valuable nutrition for your baby. Win/Win.8,12
