What Makes Infloran® Different

Probiotic products differ in terms of their bacterial strains, clinical evidence and level of manufacture.

In 2012 a team from Sydney’s Nepean Hospital embarked on finding a suitable probiotic for preterm infants.
Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus are the predominant bacterial species found in healthy breastfed infants and their health benefits are well documented. 

Despite testing many probiotics, a suitable product could not be found and an overseas proven probiotic, Infloran1 was carefully selected.

The principle was to supplement with a probiotic to help colonise the gut with beneficial bacteria, support immune function and assist with healthy digestion.
Infloran® is today found in many Australian Hospitals, a testament to its quality, safety and clinical efficacy.

Probiotic Quality Testing Protocol, first developed by Nepean Neonatal Intensive Care has been adopted as part of our routine Quality Assurance.
Every batch of Infloran® is examined to ensure it meets these high standards.

Infloran®   Carefully selected for your child’s first 1000 days

The first 1000 days are crucial for shaping our microbiome.
Influenced by many factors including mode of delivery, environment, antibiotic use and diet this diverse microbial community plays a pivotal role in our health for our entire lives.

The gut microbiota of a healthy infant is populated predominately with Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species. They help balance and restore intestinal bacterial flora, preventing colonization by pathogens, improving the maturity and function of gut mucosal barrier and modulating the immune system.
If this microbial community becomes disturbed, often referred to as dysbiosis it can present with many symptoms.

Infloran® – a probiotic previously only found in Australia’s Neonatal Units was carefully selected for its high level manufacture, taxonomy of strains and ability to alter health outcomes is now available in pharmacy.

Infloran® is used for:

  • helping to restore beneficial intestinal flora and diversity
  • supports beneficial intestinal bowel flora during and after antibiotic use
  • supports gastrointestinal immune function
  • promotes and enhances healthy digestive system function
  • helps reduce and relieve diarrhoea

The principles for probiotic administration are well established. Selecting the appropriate probiotic was a step wise approach taken by the hospital units and based on a number of factors.
Infloran® – was carefully selected for

  • high level manufacture
  • certificate of sterility from manufacturer
  • taxonomy of strains and colony count
  • QA testing with every batch of Infloran
  • rule out contaminants
  • antibiotic sensitivity

As a patient or parent, you can be assured of a high quality probiotic and demonstrated ability to alter health outcomes.
