" Mother's milk : food for savvy kids "
This is the title of the numbers «USA Today» on February 2, 1992.Although numerous studies have shown that breastfeeding stimulates the development is mainly due to the care and attention, rather than the properties of the milk.But one new study proves that it is the mother's milk, but not (or in addition to) breast feeding process, an advantage in the development.British researchers divided the three hundred premature infants into two groups: one received breast milk, and the second is not.Premature infants who received the first couple-D or five weeks of life, breast milk between the ages of seven and a half to eight years to score in IQ tests by an average of 8.3 points higher.This study also shows the direct quantitative relationship: the higher the mother's milk they received, the more score points in childhood.The difference can not be attributed to the greater care and attention, because the babies received breast milk through a tube.Why breast milk grows best minds are not yet fully known, but re
poor mother of these fats, milk glands produce these fats and saturated milk of themselves, as if say: "If the mother does not eat it, we do it."
Cholesterol: helpful or harmful to the child? Another important component of the fat family is cholesterol.It is this vital fat is the monster, which it portrayed?Not for children.As with other fats, cholesterol promotes growth of the brain and supplies the basic components of hormones, vitamin D, and bile.cholesterol level is high in human milk, cow's low and almost zero in dry mixtures.Recent studies have shown that in the first year of life, children who receive only breast milk, have higher levels of cholesterol in their blood than children receiving the dry mixture.Higher levels of cholesterol in the blood at a stage of rapid brain growth - not bad!Nutritionists are in indecision as to what is more dangerous - the possible impact of poor cholesterol milk to the infant brain, which manifests itself in a short time, or the possible consequences for the heart, which will be felt for many years after.For your children, we choose the most ancient and successful model of power - human milk for human babies.
If the facts about fats is not enough to convince you that your milk is a special, listen to the story of proteins (proteins).Proteins are the building blocks for a growing body.High-quality protein is the most important in the first year of your child's life, because in this period the child is growing faster than in any other period.Your milk contains proteins, specially designed for the development of human offspring.These powerful, providing growth substances can not develop or buy.Each of these particular substances is beneficial to your child.
Milk (cow made from a dry mix or human) contains two major proteins: whey and casein.Whey protein is a soft, easily digestible and very well received by the human intestine.Casein - a protein that makes up the curd, - more dense and heavy, and human intestines to digest it more difficult.Your milk contains mainly serum.Cow's milk and certain mixtures containing predominantly casein.Intestine your child recognizes your breast milk proteins as the right products.He assimilates the nutrients easily digest them quickly and does not reject them as foreign substances.Not willing to accept
intestine foreign proteins from mixtures or cow's milk because it has to work harder to digest the heavier curd.The intestine is a dietary keeper of the body, the blood flows into the correct proteins and does not let the blood proteins, which can cause harm to the body - the so-called allergenic proteins or allergens.In the first months of life your baby's intestine in more porous;"Gates" in the lining of the mucous membrane open, allowing a foreign proteins to penetrate through them.Closer to six months in the intestine mature and begin to close the gate selectively skipping some proteins and rejecting the other - a fascinating process called closure.Give your child his only breast milk until the intestine is not ripe - the most reliable way to protect your child's blood from potentially allergenic proteins.
addition to your whey milk contains proteins and other selective missing naturally in milk produced by cows or companies.Let's look at this elite.Taurine , brain protein improves believed to brain development and nervous system. Lactoferrin - is another protein found only in human milk;it acts as a ferry carrying
valuable iron from your milk in your baby's blood.This particular protein also protects the beneficial bacteria living in the gut of your child.In the lower intestine of your child live healthy and harmful bacteria.Good, good bacteria in return for what they are given habitat, do good to your child, such as produce vitamins.Pathogenic bacteria, if the release of their control, may unduly multiply in the intestinal tract, causing diarrhea.Besides the fact that lactoferrin inhibits the growth of pathogenic bacteria in the gut of your child, it also holds the key drozhzhepodob-tion mushroom Candida, that releases toxins.Another group of natural antibiotics available in your milk, called lysozyme, we ; are special proteins that help to expel pathogenic bacteria.
the newest members of the family of proteins that attracted the interest of nutritionists are Nucleo-CHIDA. These valuable proteins helps tissues to grow stronger, just as the added special substances increase the strength of structural steel.Nook-leotidy lining the intestine help your child become a stronger mucosa by stimulating the growth of intestinal villi - tiny fingerlike protrusions, processing food and absorbing nutrients.These
contained in your milk substances also help to maintain the vital functions of bacteria, which are necessary your child's intestine, and suppress those bacteria that do not belong here - this process is called maintain normal intestinal flora.
How sweet it is!
Spend a taste test.Try artificial milk and breast milk and you will immediately understand why children prefer the present.Breast milk has a fresh taste.Milk from the dry mixture has the taste of canned food.Human milk contains more lactose (sugar), other than the milk of any mammal - 20-30% more than cow milk.The artificial mixtures of sucrose or glucose is added to compensate for the deficiency.So why is preferable that your child receives the best sugar?Answer: he needs a child brain!Nutritionists believe that one of the products of processing of lactose, galactose, is essential nutrient for developing brain tissue.As proof of the importance of lactose for the development of the central nervous system, researchers found that among all mammals, the higher the lactose content of the milk, the larger the brain of this species.Lactose also improves calcium absorption, vital to developing bones microcell.Lactose is not only helps grow brain and bones, this natural sweetness need your child's intestines.Lactose is the growth and reproduction of beneficial bacteria that live in the intestines, Lactobacillus bifidus.
Vitamins, minerals and iron
Nobody can not produce these substances are as good as you.In your unique milk these substances due to their high biological availability or bioavailability, - which means that most of these substances in the milk used in the body of the child.Appreciation to a particular product does not give it, as it contains this nutrient, and what percentage of this material passes through the intestine into the bloodstream.What you see on the labels of artificial mixtures - is not that the children get into your bloodstream.Vitamins, minerals and iron in your milk have high biological activity.Most of these high-performance materials comes from your baby milk tissue.A very small part is spent in vain.Not so is the case with milk, cows or worked out by the companies.They have a low efficiency, low biological activity.Take, for example, the iron in breast milk: 50- 75% goes into the blood and tissues of the child.Less iron remains undigested in the intestine.All
quite different from "the other brand."Only 10% of the iron from whole cow's milk and 4% iron-enriched mixtures of iron into the blood.Not so effectively.
Not to mention on the balance. addition to the low efficiency of the nutrients contained in plant foods, excess nutrients that remain undigested, excessively overload the excretory system of the child, what the child is paying the price of its metabolism (metabolism).Superfluous, nevpitavshiesya substance violate the intestinal flora, causing the growth of pathogenic bacteria.We still do not know all the long-term consequences of these excesses.
change as the child grows. even more effective makes your milk is the fact that the amount of these nutrients is changing as your child grows.The content of vitamins and minerals in colostrum (the first milk), transitional milk (the first week) and mature milk corresponds exactly to the rapidly changing needs of your child.There are no such products as colostric transient or artificial mixtures.
facilitators. To further enhance the biological activity of nutrients the human milk contains facilitators - substances that help certain nutrients work better.For example, high concentrations of human milk vitamin C improves absorption of iron.In one interesting experiment researchers added an equal amount of iron and zinc to test samples of human milk, cow milk and mixtures of artificial and watered these milk samples of adult volunteers.From the test sample of human milk received these nutrients in the blood stream longer than from other types of milk.In fact, breast milk has a unique formula.
