The third largest component of breastmilk (after carbohydrates and fats) is prebiotics. Breastmilk is the best possible source of prebiotics for your baby.

Breastmilk also contains many immune factors (such as immune cells, maternal antibodies, nucleotides, fatty acids and carbohydrates) that can’t be replicated.
