LIST OF PRODUCTS
The Hereditum® Probiotics line consists of a series of unique strains intended for different applications. The uniqueness of our strains, protected by various patents, lies in the fact that they have been originally isolated from breast milk.
Hereditum® is one of the most widely studied ranges of probiotics, not only because of its unique origin, but also due to its different properties beneficial to human health. More than 30 publications on the properties of Hereditum® have already been published in scientific journals. In these studies, the Hereditum® strains have been shown to be capable of colonizing the human intestine to regulate and balance the intestinal microbiota, leading to improved bowel behaviour.
Moreover, the Hereditum® strains can modulate human immune defences, reducing the risk of infections and alleviating inflammatory responses in several chronic inflammatory diseases, including mastitis
The importance of breast milk in the development of intestinal flora, the modulation of the immune system and the prevention of infections in the newborn is a well documented fact. However, the presence of bacterial flora in breast milk had never been investigated since it had always been considered a bacteria-free fluid. The loss of antimicrobial activity shown by fresh breast milk after pasteurization, along with our discovery of the presence of bacteria in the umbilical cord and in the meconium of babies, led Biosearch Life to start a research project in order to investigate the possible presence of beneficial bacteria in breast milk.
Breast milk is the gold standard of infant nutrition since it not only covers the baby’s nutritional needs but also protects it from infections and diseases thanks to the presence of several healthy components.
Biosearch Life has identified and isolated a new component of breast milk that could be involved in the protection and welfare of breastfed babies: lactic acid bacteria with probiotic features.
