Clinical Benefits: Metagenics Ultra Flora Baby Care
Metagenics Ultra Flora Baby Care reduces ear infection and enhances immunity. Ear infection (Otitis media) affects 90% of children under five and is the main reason for antibiotic prescription in children.1,2 In a randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 88 infants, the combination of 10 billion LGG® and 10 billion BB-12® provided significant reduction in the incidence of ear infection when compared to placebo (Figure 1).3 Combined use of LGG® and BB-12® has also demonstrated a decrease in the incidence of ear infection,4 atopic eczema5 and antibiotic use,6 as well as exerting a restorative effect on the microbiome after antibiotic use.7
Metagenics Ultra Flora Baby Care reduces colonisation of antibiotic resistant bacteria. LGG® research has been shown to reduce antibiotic prescribing in children with acute infections8 and helps restore commensal flora after antibiotic use.9,10 LGG® has also been shown to clear antibiotic resistant bacteria vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE). A study undertaken with 61 infants and children with VRE infection, found 62.5% of subjects using LGG® (alongside antibiotic therapy) were VRE negative after 3 weeks use, compared to 24% in the placebo group.11
Metagenics Ultra Flora Baby Care assists the development of the infant microbiome. Colonization of the gut starts at birth, developing and fluctuating until three years of age, when composition stabilises.12,13 LGG®, when given to colic-affected infants 6 weeks and under, promotes colonisation of bifidobacterium species (e.g. B.breve) by more than 40%.14 Originally isolated from healthy infants, both B. longum (BB536) and B.breve (M-16v) strains15 have been shown to help establish a healthy infant microbiome at daily doses between 5 billion16 and 10 billion.17,18 All strains in Metagenics Ultra Flora Baby Care have been clinically researched in an infant population.19
