MFGM: A Key to Your Child’s Development

Mothers all understand that giving their kids proper nutrition today goes a long way, especially in setting a strong foundation for their health. Early childhood is the critical time when children experience rapid growth that needs to be supported with appropriate nutrients so that they can reach their full potential. 1

While solid foods and a balanced diet are important to achieve proper nutrition, the necessary quality components also make a world of difference. Aside from DHA, which is known as the building blocks of various body parts such as the brain, eyes, and nervous system2, moms are excited about a new breakthrough ingredient for advanced development: MFGM.

Recent studies and innovations in nutrition have identified an excellent source of necessary nutrients that can greatly benefit children and it’s called the Milk Fat Globule Membrane, or MFGM for short. Let’s take a look at what MFGM is, its remarkable qualities, and how this can help our children during crucial years of rapid growth.

What is MFGM?

MFGM is a nutrient naturally found in breast milk. MFGM is a complex structure made of several important cellular components such as phospholipids, sphingomyelin, oligosaccharides, and bioactive proteins which work together to support brain function, gut, and immune health.3


How can my children benefit from MFGM?

Kids grow up fast, right? One day they’re crawling, then as toddlers, they’re speaking, and then suddenly they’re making friends in kindergarten! Their rapid growth coincides with how quickly their body, especially the brain, develops in the early years of childhood.4 This time in their early life is crucial in the development of physical, cognitive, behavioral, and emotional domains.

As their brain rapidly develops during this time, they need extra support, especially in the form of proper nutrition5 along with proper stimulation. While getting sick and being exposed to toxic substances are harmful, the lack of proper nutrition can be just as detrimental to them.

This is where MFGM can help! MFGM has been clinically shown to help in the development of different crucial aspects of a child’s development (with proper nutrition and stimulation).  A growing body of research over recent years indicates that MFGM has beneficial effects on the following: 

  • Brain development
  • Emotional development
  • Immune system
  • Gut health

In short, MFGM can help give kids more building blocks that are needed by different parts of their bodies to develop well (with proper nutrition and stimulation). However, MFGM’s intricate nature makes it difficult to replicate and find in formula milk — until recently!

How can my child enjoy the benefits of MFGM?

Today, you can easily help your kids enjoy the benefits of MFGM. Thanks to a series of research and scientific breakthroughs, MFGM has been successfully and safely added to the unique formulation of Enfagrow A+ Four Nurapro!

Enfagrow A+ Four Nurapro is the only milk with MFGM (vs other kinds of staged milk) that is clinically proven to help give your child HIGHER IQ and EQ that lasts until school age (vs formula without MFGM) when supplementing proper nutrition and stimulation.

Apart from HIGHER IQ and EQ (vs formula without MFGM), long-lasting nutrition (up to school age) with Enfagrow A+ Four Nurapro with MFGM helps give your child the following:

  • Better social skills 
    vs other kinds of staged milk
    with proper nutrition and stimulation
  • Faster thinking
    vs other kinds of staged milk
    with proper nutrition and stimulation
  • Sharper memory
    vs other kinds of staged milk
    with proper nutrition and stimulation
  • Improved visual and spatial awareness
    with proper nutrition and stimulation

Enfagrow A+ Four Nurapro’s special formulation helps support your children during their early years of rapid growth and also gives them long-lasting benefits (up to school age and with proper nutrition and stimulation).

Help your kids have their best start in life with Enfagrow A+ Four Nurapro.
