The study confirms earlier work, indicates the need for ongoing dosing with healthy bacteria (in the form of a fermented product or a probiotic supplement) and also confirms the ability of the mother to confer a healthy gut population on her newborn child. That means: attention to gut health before conception and during pregnancy, a normal vaginal birth and unrestricted breastfeeding, although if any of those factors are missing, a probiotic product can act as a surrogate.
So, improve your mood, boost your immune response and reduce the likelihood of a child with weight management issues. That’s just for starters! What are you waiting for?
