HMF Natogen probiotic formula provides Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus paracasei and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, which contribute to a healthy intestinal microflora in infants and children (0-4 years). Studies show that microflora imbalances in the newborn can increase the risk of childhood allergy and susceptibility to infectious disease, leading diminished immunological protection, nutritional malabsorption and decreased capacity to detoxify harmful compounds in later years. The Lactobacillus acidophilus in the HMF Natogen will target and stimulate the mucosal immune system and will colonize the upper gastrointestinal tract.
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.
Formulated to contain 5 billion CFU/scoop at time of manufacture.
In a base of lactose similar to breast milk for maximum assimilation. The lactose base is derived from cow's milk. The lactose base is an important energy source for breast and bottle fed babies derived from milk but free of casein.
Bottle Fed Babies: Mix apx 1/16 tsp into baby bottle (half of 1/8 tsp) once or twice a day.
Breast Fed Babies: Press clean finger into powder and have baby suckle finger. Or use a tiny plastic spoon (i.e. used at the ice cream/gelato store for flavor tasting). These fit perfectly into the Neonate bottle and then into their tiny mouth, and easily smears onto their tongue. Then follow it with a little breast milk, or let them mash it around their mouth with saliva. They may not even notice they have that tiny bit of powder in their mouth (it tastes slightly sweet). Approximately 33 mg (1 billion viable cells) will naturally adhere to the end of your finger (rough dosage idea). Repeat three times daily.
Children (1-4 years): In a glass add water or milk to one scoop of HMF Natogen and mix. Take once daily with a meal, at least two to three hours before or after taking antibiotics, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
Is this product safe for Infants age 0-12 months? YES.
Although the product label now indicates that it is for children age 1- 4, it is actually formulated for infants 0-12 months. This is due to regulations by Health Canada (where the product is made and sold) which does not allow age range below 12 months to be listed on supplements (even if proven safe).
Storage: Keep refrigerated or in freezer when possible, yet survives at room temperature for up to 3 months.
This product does not contain: wheat, gluten, soy, corn, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. Ideal for vegetarians.
Caution: If your child has an immune compromised condition, consult your healthcare practitioner. If they are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea or sever abdominal pain, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. If symptoms of digestive upset occur, worsen or persist beyond three days, discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Safety-sealed for your protection and for product freshness. Do not use if outer seal is missing or broken. Store under refrigeration (below 46 °F).
Every newborn child should be required to take HMF Natogen. The scientific research is impressive. Those infants taking the probiotic have stronger immune systems, and greatly lowered risk of asthma, allergies, and skin conditions. On ongoing 5 year trial by Pharmax LLC shows that newborns and infants given these probiotics do significantly better than the control group in allergies, asthma, gastrointestinal ailments, and immune system health.

After birth at term, the gut is colonized with probiotic organisms such as lactobacilli and bifidobacteria. Probiotics upregulate local and systemic immunity, increase anti-inflammatory cytokines and gut impermeability to bacteria and toxins, and suppress pathogens (1). In addition to contributing to a healthy gut flora, HMF Natogen provides lactic acid bacteria and bifido bacteria with a long record of safe use.
There is now significant recognition about the critical importance of the developing healthy bacterial flora in the neonate and infant as it can largely determine future health concerns.
From having a sterile G.I. tract at birth, the neonate acquires microbial flora from the first day of life, and this flora is then responsible for a major part of the development of the entire infant immune system. It is now acknowledged that imbalances in the flora of the neonate may significantly increase the risk of childhood allergy and susceptibility to infectious disease. Consequently, it is now seen as imperative that the infant has a competent composition of microflora from the first day of life and that this can be achieved by supplementation with probiotic organisms daily from birth.
HMF Natogen has been developed specifically for the child up to 12 months of age. It contains the HMF strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus plus Bifidobacterium animalis. L. acidopilus will target and stimulate the mucosal immune system in the upper part of the G.I. tract and the B. animalis will stimulate the immune system and become established in the lower gut.
The only carrier is lactose, which is milk sugar and is assimilable by all infants. The product can be administered to the infant in formula milk, expressed breast milk, or by simply allowing the child to suckle powder from a finger or knuckle that has been dipped into the product.

I originally got it for my infant son, who has a dairy allergy, bc the info said that even ppl w/dairy sensitivities could take it. However, after I got it & read the label carefully, I realized he couldn't have it after all. Not sure why they don't specify, so just be aware. I ended up giving it to my 2 year old daughter (who has no allergies) & she loves it. It's very easy to put into food. We're almost done the bottle & she did get sick once but it was mild.

When my baby stopped pooping around 7 weeks old doctors told me this was "normal". I switched to a naturopath pediatrician and she gave me these probiotics and baby pooped daily immediately. She is now 2 1/2 years old and we still use HMF probiotics daily and she is rarely sick. Colds pass through her preschool all the time, even the chicken pox and she stays healthy. Now my new 3 month old has started taking them as well.

I gave this probiotic to my 6-mo old (as recommended by my naturopath) after a short course of antibiotics, and it helped to clear up his diarrhea in a few days, after which I used it for 2 months as "maintenance." I still use it intermittently for general immune system health (esp when everyone else around us seems to have colds). I like that it's essentially just more of the healthy bacteria that he already gets via breast milk. It's an excellent product.
