GOS & FOS (9:1)
A resilient immune system is essential for overall growth and development of an infant. However, the infant's immune and gastrointestinal system are still in the developing phase, especially in the 1st year of life, making them vulnerable to allergy, respiratory ailments and GI infection. Research suggests that Prebiotic GOS:FOS in the blend of 9:1 ratio have a significant role to play in building infant's immunity and for allergy management.
3rd LARGEST COMPONENT OF HUMAN MILK
Human milk is the ideal source of nutrition conferring various health benefits to the infant owing to its unique & complex composition.
Components of human milk that support infant immunity comprise of PREBIOTIC oligosaccharides, beneficial bacterial species such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli in addition to the other macro and micronutrients.

Amongst the most common food allergies, CMPA is seen to affect children below 1 year of age. It often manifestsin infants within one week after the introduction of cow’s milk protein
Human milk oligosaccharides (HMO) contribute to developing beneficial intestinal microflora and building immunity.
About 2.5 million infant deaths occur annually worldwide. Global statistics reveal that prematurity-related complications account for 35% of neonatal deaths.
Allergy is linked with the disruption of host defense and immune tolerance in children. Numerous clinical findings highlight the beneficial effect of prebiotics (galactooligosaccharide and fructooligosaccharide, GOS & FOS) on the development of gut microbiota and the immune system in infants.
