Oli6 goat’s milk formula is a great choice for your little one. Of course, you do not have to take our word for it, because our goat formula has many benefits. Curious as to what these benefits are? Check out the information below to discover why Oli6 is the best infant formula.
One of the reasons why parents consider Oli6 as the best infant formula is due to its digestibility. Oli6 contains high levels of prebiotic oligosaccharides, these natural prebiotics found in goat’s milk help stimulate good bacteria in the gut and are one reason why goat’s milk formula is easier for some people to digest.
Prebiotic oligosaccharides inside goat formula are special types of fibres. These fibres are not digested, but remain in the large intestine of the child after they have been ingested. In the large intestine, prebiotic oligosaccharides absorb water to make passing stool softer and easier to pass, but they also promote the growth of healthy gut bacteria to aid digestion.
Since 86% of children between the age of 0-24 months experience some form of digestive distress, a good goat’s milk formula that could improve a child’s digestion and prevent some digestive distress is certainly a good idea; this is where Oli6 goat formula comes in!
The prebiotic oligosaccharides inside goat formula are mainly responsible for improved digestion, but recent studies have shown that they could have more benefits.
In addition to digestion-related benefits, prebiotic oligosaccharides have also been linked to improved brain development, protection against pathogenic bacteria, enhanced nutrient absorption, improved gut barrier function, better colonic health, a more responsive immune system, and much more. So, if you are looking to improve your child’s digestion as well as their overall health, goat formula is certainly advised great option.
Most parents believe that different types of formula provide the same benefits, but this is far from the truth. Even though most formulas provide the nutrients essential for good growth and development, there are some subtle differences that could make a specific formula more suitable for certain children; this certainly applies to goat’s formula for children prone to digestive distress.
One of the main differences between cow’s milk and goat’s milk formula, is the level of prebiotic oligosaccharides. Goat’s milk contains six times more prebiotic oligosaccharides than cow’s milk.
There is also a difference in many vitamin and mineral levels, since goat’s milk contains higher levels of certain vitamins and minerals compared to cow’s milk. Goat’s milk naturally contains higher levels of vitamin A, magnesium, vitamin C, and calcium. Subsequently, this could prove beneficial for the overall growth and development of the child.
The protein composition of goat’s milk formula is also different than that of cow’s milk formula; this different protein composition also means that goat’s formula could be easier to digest for certain children.
Goat’s milk contains lower levels of αs1-CN compared to normal cow’s milk, but compensates with higher levels of β-CN. The specific casein profile of goat’s formula could be easier to digest for children having problems with whey protein. Therefore, goat’s formula is often considered by parents who find that their child experiences digestive distress with cow’s milk formula.
