The Benefits of EarlyShield®
Learn about prebiotics
Voiceover: So, here's what you need to know about prebiotics. You may not realize it, but your baby's digestive tract is full of billions of bacteria. Bacteria usually get a bad rap. But some of these bacteria actually help keep the digestive system healthy.
Nature figured this out long ago. Breast milk contains special carbohydrates which act as prebiotics, food for the beneficial bacteria, to help them grow and thrive. EarlyShield® also has prebiotics, to support digestive health, which supports the immune system. And since about 70% of the immune system is located in the digestive tract, that's great news for you and your baby.
Prebiotics for digestive health help support the immune system
Billions of bacteria known as probiotics fill your baby's digestive tract to support the immune system. Some of these bacteria support your baby's digestive health.
Breast milk contains special carbohydrates that act as prebiotics, food for the beneficial bacteria, to help them grow and thrive. EarlyShield® has prebiotics for digestive health to support the immune system. And because nearly 70% of the immune system is located in the digestive tract, adding prebiotics to our formula can help maintain your baby's good digestive health when you cannot feed using breast milk.
No wonder Similac® is the #1 brand fed in hospitals.
