Research and Statistic: The Science Behind DHA, PDX+ GOS and Beta Glucan

As published in PEDIATRICS®, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, the study was conducted on children aged between 3-4 years old to determine the efficacy of the unique blend of DHA, PDX^ + GOS and Yeast Beta-Glucan. These are the findings:

Science behind DHA PDX GOS Beta-Glucan

Stats showing 24% less ARI for children consuming fortified formula milk

Children consuming milk fortified with DHA, PDX^ + GOS and Beta-Glucan have been shown to have fewer episodes of Acute Respiratory Infections compared to children consuming unfortified milk.

Beta-glucans are a family of polysaccharides, of which substances made up of many individual sugar molecules linked together. It is naturally found in the cell walls of baker’s yeast, certain fungi, cereal grains such as oats and barley, mushrooms and even some algae.

Different foods include different types of Beta-glucan. The type of Beta-glucan better known for its ability to enhance the immune system is the beta-glucan derived from yeast1-3. This type of beta-glucan has been present for thousands of years in the diet of humans, including children, as part of leavened bread products. Because of its ability to help enhance immune defenses, Yeast Beta-glucan may complement other nutrients to promote immune health.

As an immune-enhancing ingredient, Beta-Glucan, along with other nutrients, helps promote better immunity allowing your child for better learning opportunities.

stats showing 19% shorter duration of ARI for children consuming fortified formula milk

If they did contract Acute Respiratory Infections, children consuming milk fortified with DHA, PDX^ + GOS and Beta-Glucan recovered faster.

stats showing 38% less missed days for children consuming fortified formula milk

Children consuming milk fortified with DHA, PDX^ + GOS and Beta-Glucan have been shown to have more school days, giving them more opportunities for learning.

stats showing 64% lesser antibiotic usage for children consuming fortified formula milk

Fewer children received antibiotics when they consumed milk fortified with DHA, PDX^ + GOS and Beta-Glucan.

Beta-Glucan is a polysaccharide naturally found in baker’s yeast and other natural foods. Yeast Beta-Glucan has the ability to enhance immune defenses and may complement other nutrients to promote stronger immune health. Yeast Beta-Glucan helps promote better immunity for your child’s continuous learning opportunities.
