Why PREBIOTICS?

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.
