HMOs have been shown to support intestinal integrity, brain development, cognitive capacities, and immune health. They impact the natural development of the neonatal microbiome.
HMOs can prevent and help to rebuild the gut lining. A leaky gut is when the lining is damaged and cannot optimally function as a barrier any longer. The smaller holes become larger and allow harmful substances like gluten, bad bacteria, and undigested food particles to enter your system and cause considerable damage to your health.
How do HMOs function in the body?
After ingestion, human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are resistant to digestion in the upper gastrointestinal tract, which allows them to reach the lower digestive tract fully intact. Once there, HMOs serve as natural prebiotics or ’food’ for probiotics. As such, they support the gut microbiome’s growth and development.
HMOs have been scientifically studied to support the development of normal immune and digestive systems in preterm infants.
The HMOs assist in the repair of your stomach’s lining and help build natural protection against annoying, unhealthy symptoms and digestive issues such as a leaky gut.
This synergistic formulation with probiotics, prebiotics, and postbiotics can increase microbial diversity and selectively feed beneficial gut health-enhancing microflora.
