Children are vulnerable to infection during early childhood because their immune systems are not yet fully developed.1 The early years are an important time of growth and development2–4, and as a parent you will want to boost your child’s immunity at this critical time. Nutrition is one way you can do this.
A healthy gut contributes to a healthy immune system5, which means that by providing proper nutrition you can strengthen your child’s immunity, and give them the inner defenses they need to combat infections and grow up strong and healthy.6
ILLUMA® provides nutrition that is closer to nature with breakthrough innovations in all three major nutrient groups—carbohydrates, fats and proteins—to provide stronger immunity along with healthy digestion and growth.7–18
THE NEW AND UPGRADED ILLUMA®
The ONLY FORMULA WITH INNOVATIONS IN ALL THREE MACRONUTRIENTS7
THE FIRST AND ONLY GROWING-UP MILK WITH*
The bioactive+ complex in illuma® 3 is a combination of three molecular structures found in mother’s milk; incorporating human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs: a family of complex milk sugars)20, sn-2 palmitate (body-friendly fat molecular structure)21, and alphalactalbumin (alpha-protein, the predominant human whey protein).22
The HMOs in Illuma® are also a breakthrough in their class, since they represent not just one, but all three families of HMOs.7,23,24 This means your baby will benefit from each type of HMO, maximizing their immune protection in the vulnerable early years of life.8,11,12,20,25,26
*Bioactive+ Complex: 2’-fucosyllactose (2’-FL), Lacto-N-neotetraose (LNnT), Milk-derived oligosaccharides, sn-2 palmitate and Alpha-lactalbumin.
