Weight gain in infants and children

Clinical trials have documented that consuming LACTOGG®’s probiotic strain promotes weight gain both in premature infants and in normally born infants. It also promotes the nutritional status of children with prolonged illness.

The addition of GG probiotic into milk feeds was useful in helping premature babies with very low birth weight to tolerate feeds faster and enhanced weight gain in extremely low birth weight babies.

Lactobacillus GG (L. GG) enhances weight gain in extremely low birth weight infants. [Al-Hosni et al.2011]

Change in weight, length and head size in children supplemented with Lactobacillus GG (L. GG) over 6 months. [Vendt et al. 2006]

Children who have long term illnesses do not grow well. In a clinical trial involving a group of children with longstanding lung infections, growth was promoted when the children were supplemented with GG probiotic.
