3 Key Nutrients in Lactating Secretion

Integrates 3 key nutrients in lactating secretion

  • The Secret of HMO
  • The Mystery of sn-2 Palmitate
  • α-Lactalbumin

Revolutionary ingredients Human Milk Oligosaccharides HMOs

Human Milk Oligosaccharides HMOs is an important breakthrough in the area of baby nutrition study and nutrition researches in the recent century. HMO is the 3rd largest solid component in lactating secretion, HMOs in lactating secretion help to support immunity and experts believe HMOs may help to decrease the risk of respiratory and gastrointestinal infections including diarrhea in children.

A baby will get antibodies from the mother's body as a temporary immune system right after birth, but after a few months, the baby will need to start developing his/her own immunity.

Block adherence of pathogens

In General
After Consuming HMO

Scientific research has shown that the unique structures of HMOs allow them to bind to pathogens such as Rotaviruses, Noroviruses and Influenza viruses and are excreted together from the body, thereby reducing the risk of intestinal infections. The first two viruses are common causes of gastroenteritis in infants and young children.

Nurture beneficial bacteria

In General
After Consuming HMO

HMOs provide nutrients for specific beneficial bifidobacteria to enhance their growth, thereby establishing healthy gut environment helps support immunity.

Helps support immune system

HMOs may positively influence babies' immune biomarkers, and help reducing the risk of allergy.

The Mystery of sn-2 Palmitate

Clearly indicates the level of sn-2 Palmitate on can label, ensuring the level meets the product specification

A "Generally Recognized as Safe" ingredient according to FDA, and provided by very few internationally recognized suppliers

The molecular structure of palmitic acid

The lipid structure that
standard formula contains more of

Palmitic acid located in sn-1 and sn-3 position.
sn-2 Palmitate

Palmitic acid located in the middle (sn-2 position of triglyceride molecule), this lipid structure is closer to the natural nutritional needs of children.

Absorption process

The lipid structure that
standard formula contains more of

Palmitic acid positioned at sn-1 and sn-3 may bind with Calcium, to form insoluble Calcium soaps which can be associated with hard stools
sn-2 Palmitate
 


sn-2 Palmitate helps to reduce the formation of Calcium soaps

α-Lactalbumin

α-Protein (α-Lactalbumin) is the predominant whey protein in lactating secretion. Whey protein is easy to digest. Studies have shown α-Lactalbumin-enriched formula leads to less gastrointestinal discomfort compared to infants fed standard formula without enrichment.

It is a high quality whey protein, containing high amounts of essential amino acids. Studies have shown α-Lactalbumin-enriched formula supported normal infant growth.
