The role of probiotics in the formation of microflora in infants fed with formulas

A.E. Abaturov


The article gives modern ideas about the importance of breast milk in the process of primary bacterial colonization of the digestive tract in children. The features of the deviation in the formation of intestinal microbiota when feeding children with formulas and the risk of microbiota-associated health disorders in children are described. The evidence of preventive action of Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis BB-12, which prevents the emergence of acute infectious diseases of the respiratory and digestive tract and allergic diseases, is given.
