Growing evidence suggests that the maturation of the gut microbiome in the first years of life can influence a child's health and development. Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are important modulators of early gut microbiome development, explaining in part the positive effect of breastfeeding on gut microbiome trajectories.

Latest results of a clinical trial show the beneficial effect of 5 specific HMOs on early gut microbiome trajectories and body growth through toddlerhood.

If you are interested in more results from this clinical trial on other parameters of gut development, please see the infographic on the link below.

Results are also available in presentation slides and video formats.
