Nutribén® R.N. LOW WEIGHT

Nutribén® R.N. LOW WEIGHT is a baby formula, suitable for newborns and onwards, designed to meet the needs of a premature newborn and/or low birth weight babies.

The main characteristic of this formula is that it provides extra energy and protein which is easy to absorb and guarantees the fast and proper growth of the baby.1-3

It is also composed of:

  • Nucleotides, which encourage maturation of the intestinal tract and improve your baby’s immune system.4-10
  • Long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids that improve intestinal development, encourage cognitive development (7 points of the mental development index), visual acuity and maturation of the central nervous system.11-14
  • Easy to digest and absorb medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which improve problems with nutrient absorption.15
