The Importance of Prebiotics for a Healthy Microbiome for Infants with an Inherited Metabolic Condition

A healthy microbiota is an important part of the immune system for infants with an inherited metabolic condition

For children with an inherited metabolic condition, a healthy intestinal microbiota is an important part of the immune system. Infections or fever can lead to poor metabolic control, sometimes even needing acute care.

There has been numerous clinical research into breastmilk composition and prebiotics, specifically scFOS:lcGOS. This has inspired the development of Nutricia's unique prebiotic fibre blend scGOS:lcFOS (9:1). Clinically proven to support the immune system through the gut, it is designed to provide a similar functional effect to that of oligosaccharides found in breastmilk.1

In children with a metabolic disorder, breastfeeding is encouraged in combination with a disease-specific protein substitute for infants, such as Anamix Infant.

For these children, a healthy intestinal microbiota is also important as part of the immune system. Infections or fever in disease can lead to metabolic dysregulation, sometimes even needing acute care.

Anamix Infant contains scGOS:lcFOS (9:1), which can have a postive effect on the development of the microbiota and the functioning of the immune system.1,2,3

IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Anamix Infant is a Food for Special Medical Purposes for the dietary management of inherited metabolic disorders in infants and as a supplementary feed in young children. It must be used under medical supervision. Not suitable as a sole source of nutrition. Refer to label for details.
