Since Oct 2004, allHMF probiotics contain a substantial increase in potency (double) and no price increase.
The HMF products are powerful probiotics for relief of intestinal health problems. These Human Micro Flora (HMF) are human derived strains which adhere better to the human gastrointestinal tract and work faster than other non-human derived probiotics such as those grown from dairy or animal strains.
HMF Forte provides two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis(on a 6 to 1 ratio of L. acidophilus to B.bifidum and B. lactis, thus targeting the small intestines more than the lower large intestines), along with fructo-oligosaccharides to specifically assist in re-establishing and maintaining a normal intestinal microflora. Studies show that an overgrowth of opportunistic pathogens leads to a compromised immune system, resulting from immunosuppressive and toxic influences such as impure water supply, antibiotics, processed foods, pesticides and stress. Stress upsets the delicate balance of the intestinal flora and imbalances of friendly bacteria, leading to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
HMF Forte is a high-level maintenance probiotic formula indicated for individuals who use antibiotics, oral contraceptives, steroids and hormonal replacement therapy, and for extreme fatigue, allergies, yeast overgrowth, stress, hypercholesterolemia and indigestion. HMF Forte is highly recommended for long-term maintenance in individuals who are immuno-compromised. The capsules are 100% pure vegetable-sourced. Product ideal for vegans.
Indications include bloating, gas, indigestion, occasional constipation, colds, flues, and fungal infections.

HMF Forte will help crowd out yeast and other undesirable organisms which result from use of antibiotics, chemotherapy, oral contraceptives, and hormone replacement therapy. *For more intensive indications such as post-antibiotic therapy and Candida albicans overgrowth, use HMF Replete first for 1-2 weeks and then continue with HMF Forte capsules for 2-4 weeks.
HMF Forte also contains fructo-oligo-saccharides (FOS) which ensure rapid establishment of the Lactobacilli in the upper small intestine and bifido bacteria in the lower small intestine. FOS is a naturally-occurring water-soluble fiber from fruit and vegetables which feeds the friendly intestinal bacteria. It also provides naturally-occurring beta-carotene from the whole freeze-dried apricot. The apricot is used for its soothing effect on the intestinal walls (and great flavor in the powders).

Are HMF products shipped with an ice pack? No. But, after extensive product testing and new freeze drying technology performed by Genestra, it was concluded that the ice pack did not make a difference during shipping since the product potency was still well over 100% label claims when shipped with ice or no ice. The manufacturer states that it is no longer necessary to ship the HMF products with an ice pack for these reasons:
Genestra has added in 50% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HMF Forte is guaranteed to have 6 billion L. acidophilus per serving, but there are 12 billion present at time of manufacturing and it is kept frozen until shipping.
October 2004: The manufacturer has increased product stability again, allowing the probiotics to last up to 3 months at room temperature holding their GUARANTEED minimum potency on label!
You will receive your HMF probiotic directly from the manufacturer in about 3-5 days. This product is very fresh and has not been sitting around on our shelves. And, you are guaranteed it will contain 50% more than what the label states.
How do I travel with my HMF probiotics? We highly recommend you take your probiotics with you on all trips and vacations since their potency will last for up to 3 months at room temperature un-refrigerated. 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.
The product was shipped in a timely manner and fulfilled all of my expectations.
Review for HMF Forte Probiotic by Genestra
Reviewed by Mimi from MAdison, WI.
This is my second order of the Genestra product. I am using this for my dog who has severe allergies. I have noticed a difference in the past 2 months. She typically will begin having weepy, swollen eyes in January accompanied by white mucus like film on them in the morning. I have not seen the mucus yet and the swelling just started this past week. So I am making some progress. I am also changing her food to a raw diet and hope that the Genestra plus the raw will help balance her body.

HMF Forte is the best!
Reviewed by Betty from Tempe, AZ.
I have tried all kinds of probiotics and this is the best by far. It is the most effective yet does not cause discomfort or cramps like others can.
Reviewed by Sophie from US.
As my naturopathic doctor highly recommended, these are the best probiotics I've ever used. I just gave birth and got antibiotics because of an early rupture of the sac. Thanks to the probiotics I took during and after the antibiotics intake, I haven't had any GI problems or yeast infections so far. Also the company takes care of the delivery so well to keep it from heat

Great stuff. I have recombined this to a few people and they have felt so much better. I notice a difference when I do not order in time. My kids take it daily too and I have noticed a difference in their regularity.

In the month that I have been taking the HMF Forte Probiotic, I have had a good experience. So far, everything seems fine and I am hopeful the probiotics are helping me toward better overall health. Rockwell Nutrition has been great in keeping me posted on other supplement options. So far, so good!
