Preterm mothers' milk contains less antioxidants than mothers completing their gestation
Date:2/17/2011

preterm mothers and 0.7 mol/l in term mothers. This means that CoQ10 concentrations in mothers at term are 75% higher than in preterm mothers. Similar results were obtained regarding tocopherol.

Perfect Food

Scientists stress that while breast milk is the perfect food for all newborns, as it provides the nutrients needed for proper development and growth, "in some cases, breastfeeding is not possible and infants are fed with artificial nutrition. Artificial nutrition is intended to be as similar as possible to human breast milk, or at least, to have the same functional effects as breast milk. This requires a deeper understanding of the composition of human breast milk". This is what makes the results obtained of this research so relevant.

Antioxidants

And, although some antioxidants as tocopherol, carotenoids, ascorbic acid, etc. are known, "there are components with antioxidant activity which concentration and presence in breast milk is completely unknown. Coenzyme Q10 which is an antioxidant of great importance- belongs to this group".

The researchers believe that their study will make an important contribution to the area of infant nutrition. "Having a deep understanding of the factors and components of human milk is paramount, as it can help in getting a better infant milk formula. This way, although a newborn can not benefit from breast milk, at least it will be given the opportunity to artificially benefit from the advantages of human milk" the authors state.
