A paradigm shift in the management of cow’s milk allergy is needed

From allergen avoidance alone to stimulation of the immune system. Promote healthy immune system responses via gut microbiota modulation1,2.

Why are allergies on the rise? Let’s explore the science behind the development of allergy. In short, an allergy is an immune-mediated disease that can develop as early as infancy. Studies indicate that most infants with allergies have an imbalance in gut microbiota3-5. More and more data has led experts to find a strong correlation between the increase in c-sections, use of anti-biotics and pollution6-9.

The gut is home to 70-80% of immune cells10. During infancy, these cells begin to colonise the gut, laying the foundations of the child immune system. With this in mind, early life presents an important window of opportunity to positively influence the development of the immune system and gut microbiome11, 12. While allergen avoidance can provide some immediate relief from allergy symptoms, it may not prevent the onset of other immune disorders later in life.

Over the past 40 years, Nutricia has been pioneering nutritional solutions in allergy being the first to identify the correlation between allergy development and an imbalance in gut bacteria. Inspired by breastmilk, we have developed a range of nutritional solutions to support infants with a spectrum of food allergies and digestive challenges. The evolution of our unique combination of pre and probiotics aims to alleviate symptoms and rebalance the gut to support as infants grow.
