Progurt as a probiotic may modify the intestinal microbiota of babies.

Progurt Team - Wednesday, October 08, 2014

Progurt is becoming increasingly well known to consumers as a probiotic that may modify the intestinal microbiota of newborn babies.

Studies have shown that oral probiotics may reduce both the severity and incidence of Necrotinising Enterocolitis in very low birth babies.

At birth, the neonatal intestinal tract is virtually sterile. As the human intestine is naturally exposed to a contaminated bacterial environment, the bowel becomes quickly colonized after birth with a variety of bacterial species.

In contrast, the preterm newborn intestine tends to be colonized by different microorganisms, predominantly coliforms, enterococci and bacteroides species. Even among low birth weight babies receiving breast milk, studies have found that the Bifidobacteria commonly found in the term newborn gut, were undetectable in the intestinal flora during the first 1 to 2 weeks after birth and did not predominate until after the third week of life. The combination of an increase in potentially pathogenic, microorganisms together with a decrease in normal flora found in preterm babies is one of the factors that render these infants at increased risk of developing necrotonising enterocolitis (NEC).
