A dietary supplement of betaine for mothers during lactation can reduce the risk of childhood obesity

A research group led by the Sant Joan de Déu Research Institute, with the participation of the IGTP, has shown that reduced levels of betaine in maternal milk are associated with more rapid growth of the baby during the first months of life, this is a risk factor for childhood obesity. The researchers have studied the changes in the presence of this nutrient in animal models and have observed temporary changes in the intestinal microbiota and long-term changes in their metabolic health.
