This study found there are differences in infant gut microbiota composition depending on the secretor status of their mothers for human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) such as 2’-fucosyllactose (2’-FL), as well as birth mode.
This prospective study found an association between early-life gut microbiota and body mass index (BMI) z-scores at age 12 in a Norwegian cohort, suggesting infant gut microbiota may have the potential to help identify children at risk of obesity later in life.
This review article provides understanding on factors such as birth mode and important nutrients such as human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) that influence the gut microbiome during prenatal, perinatal to postnatal period, and their reciprocal relationship with infant gastrointestinal tract develo
This randomized controlled trial in Chinese adults found consumption of milk containing only the A2 type of beta casein reduced symptoms of lactose intolerance, in comparison to milk that also contains A1 beta casein.
A review article discussing the potential role of gut microbiome in bone health, where microbial fermentation of prebiotic fibers in the gut produces short chain fatty acids, which in turn positively supports calcium absorption in humans.
