WORLD’S FIRST^ PAEDIATRIC NUTRITION WITH 2’-FL
Right nutrition helps build the foundation for a child’s ability to learn, grow and thrive. Studies suggest that babies who are breastfed have stronger immune systems, which may be due in part to the presence of 2’-FL.
Abbott has pioneered over 15 years of research on 2’-FL, an immune-nourishing prebiotic found in breast milk. Combined with nucleotides, an immune system developer, they support the strengthening of your child's natural defences.
2'-fl and nucleotides support your child’s two systems of immunity
An immune nourishing prebiotic found in breast milk that supports a child’s innate immunity system. 2’-FL feeds the healthy bacteria in the gut, allowing it to work better. Having healthy microbes in the little one’s gut is critical to immunity development.
What are nucleotides?Act as essential building blocks in the body. Studies have shown that it helps to build immune cells and trigger release of antibodies, which helps to support the immune system that kids develop over time.
^ Based on GNPD data, Abbott is the first company in the world to launch formula milk with 2’-FL.
