Some science from Qiara:
Research suggests a mother’s microbiome is extremely important during pregnancy and can influence everything from fetal growth and development to pregnancy complications such as gestational diabetes, pre-eclampsia and pre-term birth. Therefore it is important that a mother’s microbiome is strong and robust throughout all trimesters of pregnancy, during labour and birth, and during breastfeeding. Along with a healthy diet and lifestyle, taking one sachet of Qiara Pregnancy and Breastfeeding sachet daily while pregnant may increase beneficial flora levels contributing to a healthy and robust microbiome.
Once your baby is born, breastfeeding continues the important transfer of beneficial bacteria that begins during labour and birth. A mother’s gut and breastmilk microbiome significantly contribute to the overall health of both mother and baby, and it is essential to optimise microbiome health. Clinical Research conducted using the single probiotic strain in Qiara,Lactobacillus Fermentum CECT5716, shows that it may reduce discomfort associated with breast pain and mild mastitis and the recurrence of mild mastitis. Qiara achieves this by aggressively targeting and outcompeting the pathogenic bacteria in breast milk that may be causing the pain and infection. It also helps to restore and maintain a healthy balance of protective flora in the breast milk microbiome to help prevent recurrence. Taking one sachet of Qiara daily while breastfeeding may assist in increasing beneficial breast milk flora levels.
