GlyCare™ LNnT

GlyCare™ LNnT

Highly abundant neutral core HMO

Similar to 2'FL, LNnT promotes a healthy start in life for infants. LNnT is one of the most abundant neutral core HMO in human milk at ~0.5g/L1 with the following benefits : 

  • A protective role; preventing infection of the gut
  • Highly bifidogenic
  • Improve the gut barrier

GlyCare™ LNnT is clinically tested and can positively impact the health of infants, for example by reducing bronchitis and respiratory tract infections, and reducing usage of antibiotics and antipyretics2. GlyCare™ LNnT beneficially modulates the infant gut microbiota to a profile closer to that of breast fed through particularly an increase in bifidobacteria and reduction of certain undesirable bacteria3. LNnT plays a protective role by preventing adhesion of pathogenic organisms to intestinal cells4, promoting gut cell maturation5 and improving gut barrier function by decreasing gut permeability6, all of which help and support the infant.
