Supports Intestinal Health* • Promotes a healthy gut microflora* • Provides 12 billion CFU per dose of two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis and Lactobacillus rhamnosus. • Includes 250 mg of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) per dose.
HLC Mindlinx Powder provides five strains of proprietary human-sourced probiotics that promote optimal intestinal health. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are the most commonly used probiotics and effectively colonize the intestines.
Probiotics reinforce the epithelial barrier and mediate intestinal permeability via controlling the integrity of tight junctions. Although the microflora composition in the gut is relatively steady, it can be altered by diet, stress, age, and medication use. Probiotics promote the presence of beneficial bacteria to support normal intestinal function.
Prebiotics - including FOS - are fermented by microbes in the colon. These prebiotics support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the colon and further maintain the barrier function of intestinal epithelial cells by increasing mucin levels. Their fermentation can result in the production of short chain fatty acids, including butyrate, the preferred energy source of colon cells.*
In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 155 adults, daily intake of a probiotic supplement providing 25 billion CFU (containing two strains each of Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium) for 21 days significantly and positively affected the intestinal microbiota.*
Pharmax and GENESTRA BRANDS™ are probiotic science and innovation leaders, with over 20+ years of proven experience and an ongoing commitment to incorporate the safest and most effective strains that reflect the latest evidence-based research from human trials. Their probiotics are human-sourced strains, proven in human clinical trials and cover a comprehensive product range.

CLINICALLY PROVEN STRAINS Human Lactic Commensals (HLC) probiotic strains are research-driven and clinically proven in randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled human trials at 25 billion CFU per day. Proprietary non-pathogenic human-sourced microflora bacterial strains are utilized as they have strong epithelial adherence and a naturally high tolerance to stomach acid.
Are HLC products shipped with an ice pack? Not from October - May. Pharmax's freeze drying technology meets 100% label claims when shipped with ice or no ice during temps less than 90 degree's F. The manufacturer states that it is not necessary to ship the HLC products with an ice pack for these reasons:
Pharmax has added in 40% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HLC Intensive is guaranteed to have 25 billion CFU per serving, but there are 35 billion present at time of manufacturing and it is kept frozen until shipping.
You will receive your HMF probiotic directly from the distributor in about 2-3 days UPS Ground. This product is very fresh and has not been sitting around on our shelves.
How do I travel with my HLC probiotics? We highly recommend you take your probiotics with you on all trips and vacations since their potency will last for up to 1 months at room temperature. But, when possible and if convenient, we recommend you store your probiotics in the freezer or refrigerator, especially if you plan to preserve freshness of your product for months or years.
Where are the bacterial strains derived from? Using laboratory procedures many years ago, hundreds of different bacterial strains were isolated from a healthy human intestinal wall sample. They were separated out, and each one was reproduced to make huge batches for testing via scientific trials. (Lab procedures only require one cell sample to reproduce large quantities for testing and production over the years). Research indicated that these four of the hundreds of available cultures were the most beneficial strains with health promoting properties. These were the ones which held up strong during 15 years of testing, thus they were used as the probiotic strains in all the HMF products. These human strains are far superior to dairy or animal strains since the body recognizes these probiotics as "self" and allows better implantation. Read more about them here.

It's not worth getting cold packs during the warm months because they are not shipped refrigerated. It actually made thenprpduct hotter because the cold pack heated up and was HOT by the time I received it! Will not shell out for cold packs again. Rockwell Nutrition response: The reusable cold packs will melt during shipping in the hot months of the year, but they do keep the interior temperature cooler during shipping to protect the integrity of the probiotics that were shipped. These probiotics do stand up well to a few days of high heat shipping and will not be compromised when shipped with the cold packs. You may want to purchase the styrofoam cooler to keep the product well protected. If you want to lessen the amount of time the product will be in warmer shipping temperatures during the summer, we suggest you purchase 2nd day air or overnight shipping too. Normal ground shipping times are typically 3-5 business days (as stated in our Heat Sensitive section in our Shipping & Policy section on our website).

I was taking probiotics previously, similar to the ones listed on the side of the bottle. I also tried L-Glutamine supplements. Both have worked well for me but none have cured me of my digestive problems. I think if you haven't tried probiotics and amino acids then you should try taking them. This product has both, so it is more convenient.

I was previously using the vital dophilus for a long time and thought it was good but the mindlinx I could see a biiger difference. Things I dont like about the product are the taste is a little salty and I hate the bottle opening you have to spill the powder onto the spoon the neck's too narrow to get the spoon inside. That is small peas to deal with becuz the benefits are there.
