We'd love you to join us in a movement for good. Just open up, taste, and let one good thing lead to another. Good is for whenever—laying in the grass, on a drive, even in your underwear. Good is for whomever—you and me, him and her, us and them. It’s even contagious, too. Like yawns and smiles. Scientists say so. So why not share a little bit of good with the world? There’s plenty to go around. Go ahead, don’t be shy. Snack away. Make. Bake. Smile. Move. Eat good food and do whatever it is that makes you feel good.

Infinant Health, Inc is a privately held company committed to changing the trajectory of human health, one baby at a time, through our deep understanding of infant nutrition and the gut microbiome. 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.
