Bacterial Lysates

Very Low Risk

Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

Extract of bacterial lysates.

At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.

It unlikely that it would pass into milk, and, in whatever case, would foreseeably be destroyed in the infant gut.
Moreover, it lacks of toxicity and side effects

There is a controversy on the effectiveness of these products in the prevention or treatment of recurrent respiratory or urinary tract infections.


We do not have alternatives for Bacterial Lysates since it is relatively safe.

Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.

Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.
