Bifidobacteria may be part of what gives breast milk its naturally protective qualities§¥. They are also the most prevalent type of naturally occurring cultures found in the tummies of breast-fed babies and may help with the healthy development of their digestive and immune systems†.
That’s why Good Start Probiotic, our closest formula to breast milk, is the first and only infant formula to contain Bifidobacteria B. lactis†† – a Probiotic that contributes to baby’s healthy digestive tract flora to support healthy growth and development.
Nothing else is breast milk. But for those who can't breastfeed, or for those who choose to supplement, one thing is clear: nothing else is Good Start® Probiotic.
