How To Buy
Supports a natural healthy gut flora
  • Provides 10 billion CFU per daily dose
  • Combines four proprietary, research-driven Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria strains
  • No fructooligosaccharides (FOS)

HMF® Capsules provide four strains of proprietary probiotics that temporarily modify gut flora in adults and children. The microflora composition in the gut is relatively steady, although it can be altered by diet, stress, age and medication.1 Probiotics promote the presence of beneficial bacteria to maintain healthy intestines.1 Beyond decreasing pathogen survival by increasing antimicrobial peptide release from host cells, probiotics also strengthen the epithelial barrier.2 They support the integrity of tight junctions, which control permeability, and increase the release of mucin, which prevents pathogens from adhering to cells on the intestinal surface.2 HMF® Capsules contain research-driven Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria strains to promote colonization in both the small and large intestines.3
