Galactooligosaccharides (GOS)

Why are galactooligosaccharides important?

Your baby's gut relies on millions of good bacteria to support digestive health.1

Galactooligosaccharides act like food for the beneficial bacteria in your baby's intestinal tract and may help them grow and thrive.2 Galactoologosaccharides also help promote softer stools similar to breastfed babies.3

Lutein

Why is lutein important?

Your baby's first year of life is a critical time for brain and eye development. Lutein is naturally found in breast milk4 and is highly concentrated in the eye. It works in 2 ways:5

  1. It absorbs potentially damaging light
  2. It may protect against oxidative damage in the eye.

Until your baby’s diet includes foods like leafy greens, corn and eggs, he can only get lutein‡† from breast milk or Similac® Advance® and Similac® Go & Grow® Omega-3 & Omega-6.
