A new randomized, double-blind and controlled multicenter clinical study has found that a synbiotic formula supplemented with short-chain galacto-oligosaccharides/long-chain fructo-oligosaccharides and Bifidobacterium breve M-16V may modulate healthy toddlers’ gut microbiota by increasing levels of Bifidobacterium.

When UK researcher Glenn R. Gibson introduced the concept of prebiotics to the scientific community in 1995 it was clear to him that the gut microbiota had the potential to play a major role in health.
