HMF Replete Probiotic by Genestra
Intensive-level Probiotic Formula
150 billion CFU per sachet
FOS Prebiotic included
Ideal for vegans
Convenient Sachet format
HMF Replete is a highly concentrated probiotic formula in sachets which provides strains of proprietary human-sourced Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus salivarius, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis along with fructooligosaccharides (FOS) in high concentrations to ensure rapid establishment and dominance of probiotic cultures in the gastrointestinal tract.
HMF Replete is the highest potency HMF product containing a minimum of 150 billion CFU of L. acidophilus, L. salivarius, B. bifidum, B. animalis lactis, and in each packet. It also includes prebiotic oligosaccharides to stimulate growth of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. Each of the different strains attach in different areas of the epithelial tissue in the intestinal tract (small and large intestines).
High concentrations in these sachets are to ensure rapid establishment and dominance of probiotic cultures in the gastrointestinal tract, and can be used along side of many medical therapies. Imbalances of unfriendly bacteria and yeast may result in abdominal discomfort and therefore supplementing with a high level probiotic can help create a friendlier internal environment. This probiotic is a probiotic replacement program for the gastrointestinal tract intended for 7 to 14 days depending on the level of need.
Probiotics - reinforce the epithelial barrier and mediate intestinal permeability by controlling the integrity of tight junctions. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are the most commonly used probiotics, effectively colonize the intestines, and 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.

If you have an immune compromised condition, do not use. If you are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea or severe abdominal pain, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use.

Quality Assurance Safety-sealed for your protection and for product freshness. Do not use if sachet is opened. Refrigeration of this product is recommended to prolong shelf life. Label claim will be met if unrefrigerated up to three months.
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.
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.

I've been quite impressed with this brand of probiotics, especially the sachets.. which gave me a "jump start". Although I recently began eating "clean", I still have decades of garbage in my intestines. And the sachets began clearing that out for me. I immediately noticed one of my abdominal "fat rolls" decreasing in size, from the garbage being cleaned out of my gut.

The product seems good enough though I won't really know if its working for another couple months. It would be easier if the packages were divided in 2 as I am taking one packet twice a day. Also was annoyed that I paid for the cooler for them to be shipped and the cooler only held 1/3 of what I bought so the others were put in a box with the cooler packs. I do like that its a powder and freeze dried- was easier for me to travel with.

After finding the right dosages for me, I'm very happy with this product. With the 1/2 sachet I started on, I had gastrointestinal problems, but when I tried 1/4 packet, it was fine. Gradually I increased it to 1/2 sachet, and that is fine now. It's easy and pleasant to take, and I believe I can feel it working (in a very subtle way).

Reviewed by JL from Canada.
To allow your stomach to get used to the effects of the HMF product, here's a routine that I recommend when starting this product. This is only my opinion, but has worked out extremely well. First Packet take 1/4 serving size once a day (4 Days). Second Packet take 1/4 Serving size twice a day (2 Days). Remaining Packets take 1/2 Serving size twice a day (5 Days). If you break it up through 2 servings a day, allow the effect of the HMF to full penetrate your system. This is probably the best product i've used and recommended to anyone looking for a serious probiotic treatment. Best of Luck :)
