Unravel the Power of 2'-FL and Bifidus in Gut Health and Beyond

Speakers: Prof. Yvan Vandenplas

Summary

The makeup of the gut microbiota in infants has long-lasting impact on their future health, including their immunity, metabolism, and intestinal health. Substantial exposures during the first years of life can significantly alter the balance of gut microbiota. Probiotics include members of the genus Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus, and prebiotics such as human milk oligosaccharide, HMO 2’-fucosyllactose have been shown to promote gut health and support the immune system. In a symposium sponsored by Nestlé Nutrition Institute in Singapore, renowned pediatric nutrition expert Prof Yvan Vandenplas discussed the immuno-protecting role of probiotics, HMOs such as 2'FL.
