Breast really IS best: Mothers’ milk fills a child’s digestive system with essential ‘good’ bacteria

Good bacteria from the milk of breast-feeding mums can protect the digestive and immune system health of her baby, say scientists

A thriving population of beneficial gut bugs is vital to an infant’s digestive health and immune system development. The new research suggests that the bacteria can be transferred to a suckling baby in breast milk. Swiss scientists found identical strains of the microbe Bifidobacterium breve and several types of ‘good’ Clostridium in both a group of babies and the breast milk they were being fed with. Good bacteria from the milk of breast-feeding mums can protect the digestive and immune system health of her baby, say scientists The strains may help establish a critical nutritional balance in the guts of infants and could be important for preventing intestinal disorders, they believe. Study leader Professor Christophe Lacroix, from the Institute for Food, Nutrition and Health in Zurich, said: ‘We are excited to find out that bacteria can actually travel from the mother’s gut to her breast milk. Number of children dying from heart defects has fallen by more than 80% in the last 30 years ‘A healthy community of bacteria in the gut of both mother and baby is really important for baby’s gut health and immune system development.

How to heal your digestive system of damage from GMO foods (Video)

Science has established that there is a definitive link between the brain and the gut, which is why the gut has been rightly named “the second brain”. Expressions such as “butterflies in my stomach” and “gut wrenching” are actually saying more than what we read on the surface. Whether one’s tummy is in knots over a speech or one lacks the guts to undertake something, the fact remains: We think and feel with our guts as much as we do with our brains. Isn’t it logical, then, that a strong and healthy gut will spawn a healthy body and strong mind? Research suggests that the gut micro-flora lining the intestines are much more than just “good” or “bad” bacteria, and that their most important function is to regulate the body’s immune response, especially when faced with stress. This is a two-way street: Psychology and psycho-social factors influence the physiological functioning of the gut, and a healthy strong gut can help one stay mentally agile and fit. A recent scientific study in Nutrition in Clinical Practice shows that the micro organism or gut flora living in the human intestines form a network of natural controls that regulate mood, appetite, body weight, nutrient absorption, stress and immune response.
