Pharmax HLC Baby B
HLC Baby B is a probiotic supplement for breast fed babies supporting normal immune function and skin health in infants with probiotics.
- Safe for use during infancy
- May help to reduce incidence of skin sensitivity
- 10 billion CFU per serving
HLC Baby B probiotic formula for infants provides Lactobacillus salivarius, Lactobacillus paracasei, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, which help to promote normal immune function and skin health in infants.* HLC Baby B powder dissolves easily into milk or water, and is free of gluten and soy. Ideal for vegetarian infants. Human Lactic Commensal (HLC) probiotics are proprietary, non-pathogenic, human-sourced microflora bacterial strains that exhibit strong epithelial adherence and a naturally high tolerance to stomach acid. HLC Baby B's formulation has been clinically tested to ensure both safety and efficacy.
Additional product info: Daily supplementation with HLC Baby B's formulation in infants was found to safely and effectively reduce incidence of skin sensitivity and promote skin health. In a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, parallel group trial, 454 pregnant women at 36 weeks gestation were randomized to either a probiotic capsule group (Lactobacillus salivarius CUL61 6.25×109 colony forming units (CFUs), Lactobacillus paracasei CUL08 1.25×109 CFU, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis CUL34 1.25×109 CFU and Bifidobacterium bifidum CUL20 1.25×109 CFU) or a placebo capsule group. Participants began daily supplementation with either treatment until giving birth; participants' infants then began daily supplementation until 6 months of age. Infant skin sensitivity testing was performed at 6 months and again at 2 years of age. In comparison with the infant participants in the placebo group, participants in the probiotic group experienced a statistically significant 44% decrease in skin sensitivity. Usage of HLC Baby B's formulation did not impact adverse event incidence, number of visits to the doctor, or mothers' assessment of infant health. Based on these findings, the authors concluded that usage of the probiotic formulation was safe during pregnancy and early infancy. These results expand upon the findings of several other clinical trials that have demonstrated the skin health promoting effects of probiotic supplementation in infants. In a similar clinical study, daily supplementation with a probiotic mixture from 4-8 weeks prior to delivery and for the first 6 months of age significantly reduced the incidence of skin sensitivity in infants. In infants aged 1-3 with sensitive skin, daily supplementation with a probiotic mixture for 8 weeks was found to help support normal skin health.
