Development of the microbiome starts immediately at birth, when the baby is exposed to bacteria from both the mother and the environment he or she is born into.
This development continues as the baby is fed. Along with proteins, fats, carbohydrates and vitamins, breast milk contains substances that help to promote the growth of friendly bacteria in the developing baby, including bacteria, immune antibodies and prebiotic fibres, such as galactooligosaccharides (GOS).
To ensure breast milk is as healthy and nutrient dense as possible, breastfeeding mums might choose specific supplements, including friendly bacteria, to support a healthy diet.
Whilst all ProVen products are safe whilst breastfeeding, our Pregnancy products are specifically suited to breastfeeding to provide support for both mum and baby.
