Our story can change a baby’s story




The lost key to immune health.


Years of proprietary research into the role of human milk and its impact on human development led to our groundbreaking discovery of B. infantis EVC001, a natural bacterial strain foundational to infant immune health. Unfortunately, B. infantis had been almost completely eradicated from infants in developed countries due to unintended consequences of modern medicine such as feeding and birthing practices.

Now, there is a way to change that. What we found is that EVC001, our specific strain of B. infantis, is essential in developing a healthy microbiome, reducing potential harmful bacteria that may be linked to prevalent childhood issues such as allergies and type 1 diabetes, moderating inflammation, and supporting healthy immune system function.

We believe the greatest chance to impact future health begins early, right after birth—a once in a lifetime opportunity where rapid development and radical changes occur. By unlocking human nutrition's full potential through introducing beneficial bacteria during early infancy, we can help build a foundation for better health. 

Our Founders


A spin-out from the Foods For Health Institute (FFHI) at the University of California, Davis, we are now a leader aiming to improve individual health through diet and the gut microbiome. Our founding scientists continue to advise and collaborate with us, sharing their experience from more than a decade of research into the infant gut microbiome and its critical interaction with human milk.
