New infant formula ingredients boost babies' immunity by feeding their gut bacteria

Prebiotics are carbohydrates that resist digestion by human enzymes and stimulate the growth and activity of beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract.Probiotics are actual live bacteria that are beneficial to intestinal health. Infants have a special need for stimulation of their gut microbiota because they are born with a sterile intestine.Adding prebiotic ingredients to infant formula helps colonize the newborn's gut with a stable population of beneficial bacteria, and probiotics enhance immunity in formula-fed infants, two University of Illinois studies report.The beneficial bacteria that live in a baby's intestine are all-important to an infant's health, growth, and ability to fight off infections.
