HMF Neuro Powder by Genestra
Moderate-level Probiotic Formula
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.
HMF Neuro 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 MicroFlora (HMF) 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.
The Lactobacillus rhamnosus species in HMF Neuro has the capability of breaking down the exorphin peptides from foods containing gluten and casein. In addition to possessing peptide-hydrolysing abilities, Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, and the two strains of L. acidophilus assist with detoxification and helps to support the mucosal barrier in the intestinal tract. Undigested proteins from foods containing gluten and casein, can lead to the production of aberrant peptides with opioid activity or exorphins in the intestines. HMF Neuro Capsules helps maintain the integrity of the intestinal tract by helping to break down these exorphin peptides.
Are HMF products shipped with an ice pack? Not from October - May. Genestra'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 HMF products with an ice pack for these reasons:
Genestra has added in 40% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HMF 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 HMF 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.

Using this for my 9 year old son. We were told, in conjunction with other therapies, that changing his diet and adding probiotics was important for his health.

I used 3 scoops once a day vs. 3 capsules per day, and I think capsules work much better. If you have taken HMF neuro for awhile, I recommend taking the capsule form and you should find greater benefit imho.
