Results from a clinical trial published in the Journal of Pediatrics show infants who consume formula containing milk fat globule membrane (MFGM) and bovine lactoferrin had an accelerated neurodevelopmental profile scoring higher in tests of cognitive, language and motor development by their first birthdays.
The formula was associated with age-appropriate growth and significantly fewer diarrhea and respiratory-associated adverse events through to 18months of age.
