As parents, we all want to ensure that our little ones get the best start in life. Every milestone is a testament to their growth and development, from their first heartbeat to their first steps. One of the most crucial aspects of a baby’s health that often goes unnoticed is the development of their microbiome. This invisible ecosystem of microorganisms plays a vital role in their overall well-being, and nurturing it from the very beginning with probiotics for babies can have long-lasting benefits.

What are probiotics and how can my baby benefit from them?

Probiotics are good gut bacteria that can provide numerous advantages to our health when ingested in high quantities. Probiotic bacteria form a large part of the microbiome, sometimes known as your gut flora a whole ecosystem of bacteria, fungi and all kinds of microorganisms that live inside you to help keep you feeling well! There is clear evidence that the bacterial colonisation of a baby’s gut with the right probiotic bacteria plays a huge role in the development of a baby’s health.

Understanding the baby microbiome

The microbiome is a complex community of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and other microorganisms that live on and inside our bodies. For babies, the development of a healthy microbiome starts at birth and continues to evolve through their early years. This microbial community is essential for various bodily functions, including digestion and supporting the immune system development, for example in relation to allergies and allergy development in babies.

From the moment a baby is born, they begin to acquire microbes from their environment. The method of delivery, whether vaginal or cesarean, breastfeeding and even skin-to-skin contact with parents can influence the composition of a baby’s microbiome. A well-balanced microbiome helps in protecting against harmful microorganisms, supporting digestion and colic and promoting a healthy immune response.

Challenges to the baby microbiome

Despite the natural processes that support microbiome development, modern lifestyles and medical interventions can sometimes disrupt this delicate balance. Factors such as antibiotic use, formula feeding, and limited exposure to beneficial microbes can hinder the growth of a healthy microbiome. This is where probiotics come into play, offering a helping hand in fostering a robust microbial community.

What makes OMNi-BiOTiC ® PANDA unique?

For the last 30 years here at Institut AllergoSan, we have been dedicated to creating unique high-quality products that have noticeable effects. Similar to all the products within our OMNi-BiOTiC® range, our popular OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA adheres to a comprehensive set of quality standards. OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA is formulated with four bacterial strains that have undergone rigorous testing and proven efficacy in clinical studies. Each 3g dose contains an impressive 3 billion bacteria that are resistant to stomach acid, and it also includes a unique blend of enzymes and fibre to enhance the strength of the bacteria upon activation! Unlike many other probiotic products, there is no need to refrigerate OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA, thanks to the robustness of the strains which can withstand temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. This resilience is achieved through a freeze-dried formulation and a reactivation process that occurs just before consumption, making the bacteria strong and resilient!

We continue to demonstrate entrepreneurial courage by investing heavily in research, as this is the only way we can guarantee that our products meet the highest scientific standards and really help our customers.

Want to know more about OMNi-BiOTiC®?

The success of the probiotics brand OMNi-BiOTiC® started over 30 years ago when Anita Frauwallner, the award-winning intestinal expert and founder of Institut AllergoSan, discovered her passion for gut bacteria following a life-changing event. Her belief that a healthy gut is crucial to a vibrant life led to the creation of OMNi-BiOTiC®, which has become the world's third-largest probiotics brand as of early 2023. Increasingly, people worldwide recognise that health begins in the gut and trust OMNi-BiOTiC® products for their holistic approach to health and well-being.

Who can benefit from OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA?

OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA was developed to ensure a good start for both mother and child. Good gut health is key for both – so for optimal effects, OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA should be taken by expecting mothers from the 8th month of pregnancy.

The four scientifically tested bacterial strains have been specially selected for pregnant women & babies and have been used in numerous studies. Based on many years of experience from scientific studies and practical application, the use of OMNi-BiOTiC® PANDA is recommended from the 8th month of pregnancy, especially if the mother has intolerances, and throughout the child’s first year of life.

The start of life is crucial for the development of the child’s intestinal flora: both the type of birth (vaginal birth or caesarean section) and the food source for the newborn (breastfeeding or bottle feeding) have a decisive influence on the composition and diversity of the colonisation in the child’s intestines.
