Advances in Infant Nutrition: Shaping the Gut Microbiota

Dr. Philip Sherman — Length: 30:00

Early nutrition plays a key role in the development of an infant’s gastrointestinal (GI) microbiota thus, also supporting the development of immunoprotective functions. Bioactive components found in human milk such as prebiotics, probiotics, and nucleotides are key factors in shaping the infant’s intestinal immune system, which makes up more than 80% of the body’s immune cells. The relationship between nutrition, gut microbiota and the immune system has led to recent advances in infant formula microbiota-targeted therapeutics. More specifically, this program will review the role of human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) on the growth of gut microbiota and immune-modulation, and the systemic beneficial effects that they confer.
