Biocare have recently added something for newborns to their range of quality products. Baby BioFlora is a powder that can be given to newborn babies up to 12 months and contains lactobacillis bacteria which helps establish a newborns gut flora. You may of course be wondering why this would be necessary?
When babies are born naturally vaginally their noses and mouths are subjected to the mother’s good bacteria as they come down the birth canal. They also receive this good bacteria from the mother during breastfeeding. This bacteria establishes itself in the gut and in turn the immune system and as 70% of our immune system is found in the gut then this is vitally important for long term health. It is also well known that good gut flora in young children can help reduce common allergies by anything from 36% to 50%, depending on the type of allergy.
There are many reasons why some of us have had to have a cesarean (me included) or cannot breast feed. To me BioFlora is a viable option to help the gut flora thrive and also to help a newborn thrive.
