Mother Nutrient Breastfeeding Probiotic extends the benefits of breastfeeding
More than a third of breastfeeding mothers experience significant discomfort that can lead to ending breastfeeding earlier than desired. The benefits of breastfeeding for infants are well documented, but mothers need to be pain-free and healthy for this relationship to continue. This probiotic has been clinically shown to support breast health and maintain a healthy bacterial balance in breast milk.†1
Mother Nutrient Breastfeeding Probiotic can help mothers recover from common breastfeeding issues and avoid mastitis recurrence.
Mothers experience a wide range of issues related to lactation, from supply issues, engorgement, and infections. One of the most common is mastitis, which can be incredibly painful, long-lasting, and difficult to treat. Traditional treatment methods (mainly antibiotics) have also been reported to lead to negative side effects.2 Studies have shown that lactic acid bacteria isolated from breast milk can resolve and prevent mastitis.3,4 The Lactobacillus fermentum strain used in this probiotic has antimicrobial properties and helps to regulate the immune system, which helps mothers recover from mastitis more quickly and effectively. During an active case of mastitis, it is recommended to take 9 billion CFU (3 capsules).
Probiotics can support your baby’s health
Even if you do not experience problems like mastitis, this probiotic offers many benefits to the breastfeeding mother like supporting her gut health and immune system, and extends them to your baby as well! The healthy bacteria can travel through breast milk to support the developing baby’s microbiota and immune system, and recent studies have indicated that maternal probiotics can help reduce the risk of eczema in babies.5
