Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM)

By five years old, your child is full of wonder and learning. But did you know that this is also when 90% of his brain development happens? Pediatric scientists know that anything missed during this time may be irrecoverable later on. That’s why they’ve been working hard to capitalize on these during early child development.

Today, all that hard work has paid off as we unveil the latest breakthrough in pediatric nutrition: the Milk Fat Globule Membrane (MFGM). This is the milk fat’s coating, which is rich in life-enhancing components needed to support your child’s brain development and immunity.


MFGM works with brain-nutrient DHA for 2X Power giving your child the IQ + EQ Advantage. This means they support cognitive development and improve IQ together (as opposed to just DHA alone), giving your child an added boost for better learning.

MFGM also supports EQ (emotional quotient) – the measurement of your child’s emotional intelligence and social development.A recent study shows that it leads to improved behavioral regulation. This means he can understand and control his emotions better, helping him in making friends, getting along with others, and other social situations.

Some of the compounds found in MFGM are also rich in antiviral and antimicrobial mechanisms that combat infections. A recent study shows that it can help build the body’s immunity and strengthen defense against infections, keeping your child as healthy as he can be.

With all of these benefits, it’s not so surprising why scientists are heralding MFGM as a breakthrough. But what’s really exciting experts is that for the first time in history, MFGM can be extracted from cow’s milk and added to a children’s milk formula: only in Enfagrow A+ Four. So with every glass you give, you know you’re helping prepare him for the future with a breakthrough today.
