The First Probiotic to introduce to your baby is BioAmicus Johnsonii™
Numerous studies have been showing how essential Lactobacillus Johnsonii colonization is to newborn infants in helping to prevent chronic conditions such as allergies, eczema, food sensitivities, and even asthma.
Early in the first trimester of pregnancy, the diversity of vaginal bacteria changes significantly. Abundant species become rare, and vice versa.
One of the dominant species in the vagina of a pregnant woman, it turns out, is Lactobacillus johnsonii. It is usually found in the gut, where it produces enzymes that digest milk. Research indicates that changing conditions in the vagina encourage the bacteria to grow. During delivery, a baby will be coated by Lactobacillus johnsonii and ingest some of it. This inoculation prepares the infant to digest breast milk.
Also Children born by cesarean section – and therefore not exposed to Lactobacillus johnsonii or other potentially protective species in the mother’s vaginal tract – have a 30 percent higher risk of developing allergic asthma during childhood. Current research shows how Lactobacillus johnsonii helps to promote proper immune system development, protecting against auto-inflammatory immune conditions such as Asthma, allergies, and eczema.
