Gastrointestinal (GI) health is central to our overall health and well-being, with a role that extends beyond digestion and absorption of nutrients and fluid. A healthy GI development and function also impacts immune function and even our mood and mental wellbeing. At Danone Research & Innovation we understand that optimal nutrition during the first 1000 days is of major relevance for the development of a healthy, well-functioning GI tract and lays the foundation for future health.
“During the first 1000 days, a healthy development and function of the gut plays a key role for optimal training and maturation of the immune system. The majority of immune cells are located in the GI tract and it is therefore the primary site of interaction between the immune system and the gut microbiota ”
