The 77th Nestlé Nutrition Institute Workshop on the importance of immunonutrition held from October 28th – November 1st 2012 in Panama city, presented the latest findings on how nutrient status can modulate immunity and improve health conditions in pediatric patients. Nutrients have tremendous, and the regulation of the immunity and inflammatory process. The first session explored the pharmaceutical value, and infant development. The second session revolved around the gut function and immunity, and the right
oligosaccharides, hormones and other components affect the newborn’s immunity as well. Furthermore, milk, the protective immunity and decreasing the risk of breast cancer, breastfeeding may have multiple benefits
Human milk presents the optimal nutrition for infants and is key to sustaining health and building the foundation for growth and cognitive development. Rapidly-advancing technology has allowed us a closer look at the different components of human milk and shed light on their biological effects on growth, metabolism, cognition, and immunity. Yet researchers face many challenges in their quest to unravel its complexities. An understanding of human milk is inextricably linked to an understanding
neonate. HMOs may modulate neonatal immunity by altering host epithelial and immune cell responses, prospects and scientific challenges, with a focus on immunity and infection. To know more click here T
Formulae with 2’FL and LNnT offer a significant advantage in comparison to formulae without HMOs, with initial results of clinical studies being promising. Some of the key advantages are: Improved Immunity Gut microbiota is closer to the microbiota observed in breastfed infants, both in terms of composition and metabolic activity Stool microbiota in term infants is associated with reduced likelihood of medication (antibiotics) Lower incidence of bronchitis, lower respiratory infections
