Breast milk is the best food for the neonate because it provides a unique combination of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals and vitamins that ensures the correct growth and development of the infant. In addition, it also contains bioactive compounds responsible for a wide range of beneficial effects such as the promotion of immune system maturation and the protection against infections. Among these bioactive agents, probiotic bacteria have been recently isolated from human milk. The…

A systematic review conducted by the Committee on Nutrition of the European Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology, and Nutrition revealed that there is no conclusive evidence supporting the routine use of probioticand/or prebiotic-fortified infant formulae.

Isolation, Characterization and Determination of Antimicrobial Properties of Lactic Acid Bacteria from Human Milk

The addition of breast milk probiotics to infant formulas could be a new alternative to mimic some of the functional effects of human milk in children who are not breastfed.

Use of probiotics and prebiotics in infant feeding.

Breast Milk, a Source of Beneficial Microbes and Associated Benefits for Infant Health

This review aims to discuss mammary gland development in preparation for lactation as well as explore the microbial composition and origins of the human milk microbiota with a focus on probiotic development.

Province of the Gut-Probiotics

The word “probiotic” was not coined until 1960s but many scientists contributed in this area and the Expert group of WHO/FAO (2001) eventually gave a definition of probiotic, i.e. “live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer heath benefits on the host”.

How Fermented Foods Feed a Healthy Gut Microbiota: A Nutrition Continuum

Select bacteria of the maternal digestive microbiota may access the mammary glands through oraland entero-mammary pathways by involving mononuclear cells for their transport, which would provide new opportunities for manipulating maternal-fetal microbiota, reducing the risk of preterm birth or infant diseases.

Use of pigs as a potential model for research into dietary modulation of the human gut microbiota

The present review displays the similarities and differences in intestinal microbial ecology between humans and pigs, scrutinising the pig as a potential animal model, with regard to possible health effects.

Non-nutritional use of breast milk.

Information is collected about the possible non-nutritional use of breast milk and how it is used in post-natal care, treatment of wounds, as well as to fight bacterial and viral infections.



Probiotic Potential of 3 Lactobacilli Strains Isolated From Breast Milk

The results showed that the probiotic potential of lactobacilli isolated from milk of healthy mothers is, at least, similar to that of the strains commonly used in commercial probiotic products, indicating that breast milk is a natural synbiotic food.

Probiotic Agents : Clinical Applications in Infants and Children

Interest in the use of live microbial agents for health maintenance and disease prevention or treatment has exploded over the last few years. Many of these organisms, under the generic name of

[Beneficial effects of consumption of a dairy product containing two probiotic strains, Lactobacillus coryniformis CECT5711 and Lactobacillus gasseri CECT5714 in healthy children].

The consumption of a probiotic product containing L. coryniformis and L. gasseri CECT5714 improves intestinal flora of healthy children, enhancing the defence against gastrointestinal aggressions and infections both by inhibiting pathogen adhesion to intestinal mucins and enhancing the immune function.

Biological functions of oligosaccharides in human milk

This review summarizes recent data on biological functions of oligosaccharides and discusses qualitative and quantitative aspects of free oligosccharides in term and preterm milk; influence of infant feeding on the development of a specific flora in newborns; oligosACcharides as soluble receptors for pathogenic bacteria and viruses; renal excretion of oligOSaccharide in preterm infants.

Human milk inactivates pathogens individually, additively, and synergistically.

The total antimicrobial protection provided by human milk appears to be far more than can be elucidated by examining protective factors individually, and can greatly reduce the time needed for pathogen inactivation.

The consumption of two new probiotic strains, Lactobacillus gasseri CECT 5714 and Lactobacillus coryniformis CECT 5711, boosts the immune system of healthy humans.

The new product enhanced immunity in the participants to a greater extent than did the control standard yogurt, and the effects were higher after two weeks of treatment than after 4 weeks, which suggests regulation of the immune system.
