The human gastrointestinal tract harbors between 10 trillion and 100 trillion microorganisms, comprised of hundreds of bacterial species, But we don’t start out that way. The newborn’s initial gut endowment is limited to a few types of organisms, and gradually changes until it reaches a high diversity like the adult gut by 1 to 2 years of age. This development is affected by whether the birth was vaginal or cesarean section, as well as whether the first food was breast milk or formula. Infants born vaginally have increased bacterial diversity or “richness” in the gut, increased chances for normal weight and other health parameters. Breastfed infants typically have a bifidobacteria-dominated microbiota, most likely due to the presence of prebiotic breast milk oligosaccharides as well as probiotic organisms in breast milk.

From birth to old age, our intestinal landscape is an ever-shifting balance of health-promoting organisms (probiotics) and problematic ones. Improper acquisition of a diverse and balanced microbiota during infancy and early childhood may have an adverse impact on health into adulthood whereas healthy initial colonization positively influences gut maturation and immune, brain, and metabolic development. Factors such as illness, diet, lifestyle and environment all continue to influence our gut microbiota populations through all stages of adulthood.[1]

Long used safely in food, modern research confirms the safety and sustainability of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus oral probiotic species, which beneficially affect the intestinal microbiota via local and systemic immune mechanisms as well as non-immune mechanisms. Whether young or old, male or female, the human gastrointestinal tract may benefit from evidence-based strains as hypo allergenically formulated food supplements.

Elisabeth will discuss the latest products in Nutrigold’s probiotic range including Children’s Pro-otic, formulated as a tasty chewable tablet containing specific bacterial strains suitable for children, and Pro-otic for adults. There will be plenty of time for you to ask Elisabeth questions about this product and its clinical application within the scope of a functional nutrition programme. The outcome of this webinar is intended to leave you confident in choosing the right probiotic formulations for your clients.
