Naturally present only in mother’s milk, human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) play a key role in developing the human microbiome during infancy – the gateway to gut health, immune health, and possibly also brain health. However, our reserves of HMOs are depleted at a young age. Thanks to advancements in science, HMOs can now be leveraged throughout life. Join Sonia for the HMO Journey.
In this session, attendees will gain:
- An understanding of the mechanism of action by which HMOs strengthen the gut
