The Microbiota-Gut-Brain Axis represents a bi-directional communication between the gut microbes and the brain, and vice versa, through neural, endocrine and immune avenues.
The significant increase of greenhouse gases (GHG) since the industrial revolution is a major driver to earth warming and the observed climate change. Even if the rise in global temperature might seem small, it has significant consequences on our climate, such as the heatwaves, storms, or extreme precipitations, already witnessed in recent years.
A healthy microbiome builds a strong immune system. The microbiome acts as instructor and arbiter of host immunity, while the immune system regulates colonization with healthy microbes. This bi-directional crosstalk can be regulated through nutrition to support a healthy microbiome and long-term immunity.
Digestible carbohydrates are an important source of energy for babies’ healthy growth and development, contributing between 45% and 65% to their daily calorie intake.
Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the third most abundant solid component of human milk after lactose and lipids, often exceeding the total amount of human milk proteins.
New infographic. How can preterm infants benefit from human milk oligosaccharides?
Up to 50% of preterm babies suffer from feeding intolerance which in turn is associated with suboptimal nutrient intake and decreased growth rate, amongst other consequences.
Packaging serves to protect the product inside from spoilage and waste. When packaging is not disposed of properly, it ends up in nature and becomes a danger to fish and wildlife.
Gut microbiome has multiple important functions. Appropriate trajectory of gut microbiome is essential for many aspects life-long health.
