A: Before formulating all the products under FAMIBIOTICS®, we talked to gastrointestinal experts. Our efforts with renowned microbiologists and nutritionists in Singapore and Japan witnessed several breakthroughs. The strains selected for FAMIMOM are specifically targeted at the health needs of mom during preconception, pregnancy and after birth
A: According to UNICEF, the first 1,000 days of life – the time spanning roughly between conception and the baby’s second birthday – is a unique period of opportunity when the foundations of optimum health, growth, and neurodevelopment across the lifespan are established. Often called the body’s ‘second brain’, the gut microbiota has been the subject of growing research and attention in recent years. Its powerful effects on physical and mental health are becoming increasingly clear, as is its role in enhancing immune system functions. Whether the microbiome begins to develop during pregnancy or childbirth is still a matter of debate, but the first hours, days and years of life are critical.
A: The ImmuG® strains have been proven in terms of safety and efficacies for pregnant mothers and infants. Not only the strains are GRAS certified by USFDA, they are extensively researched and used by hospitals in Japan, Australia and Singapore.
A:The window of opportunity during the first 1000 days is crucial to both the mother and the baby as they have very different health needs from preconception till full term. Research has shown that the mental and physical health of mom-to-be should be started as early as 3 months before pregnancy. This includes the right diet and taking supplements such as probiotics, lactoferrin and DHA to regularly to boost immunity and reduce the risk of pre-term birth complications.
A: The health and well-being of a mom-to-be have critical impact on the development of her unborn child. During pregnancy, microbial composition of the mother’s gut also has a profound impact on the health of her baby from development of allergies to eczema in infants. FAMIMOM is a unique probiotics combined with lactoferrin and high strength DHA that helps in building up the immunity level of mom-to-be, conferring healthier pregnancies and increase the chance of carrying the baby to full term.
A: Every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm (before 37 completed weeks of gestation), and this number is rishing according to WHO.
A: While bacteria count is important, it takes a back seat to the specific strains at an appropriate amount that have been clinically proven to be effective. With four extensively studied ImmuG® strains, the CFU count of 25.5 billion per sachet is approved by probiotics experts to be good for healthier pregnancies through the gut.
A: This risk is preventable through better prenatal health such as healthy diet and optimal nutrition. Taking probiotics is a way to boost your gut immunity and prenatal health. Naturally, the baby would inherit the good health in the womb. The chances of carrying your baby to full term naturally becomes higher.
A: We call the special but proprietary formulation “ImmuG”, a formulation together with Lactoferrin and DHAprovides a total gut protection inside out to the mother.
A: The selected strains are found to be delivering even more benefits when combined with a glycoprotein called Lactoferrin and high-strength DHA.
Not only the combination benefits mom-to-be directly during preconception and pregnancy, it could continue to deliver the desired benefits to both the mother and baby even during postnatal through breastfeeding.
A: At Fami Health, we understand the challenges of mom-to-be. That is why we invested in robust research to formulate the best probiotics supplement to make the journey for mom-to-be an exciting and successful one.
