HMF Forte Probiotic by Genestra/Seroyal
Moderate level long term maintenance probiotic • 10 billion CFU per dose • Includes fructooligosaccharides (FOS) • Ideal for vegans
Stress, antibbiotic medication, processed foods, environmental contaminants and lifestyle may be contributing factors which upset the delicate balance of the intestinal flora. Imbalances of friendly bacteria can contribute to autoimmune and inflammatory diseases.
HMF Forte is a moderate-level, long-term maintenance probiotic formula which provides two strains of proprietary human-sourced Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, along with fructooligosaccharides (FOS).
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 is indicated for dysbiosis (5), and symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (1) which has also been shown in human double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies, at a core consortium of 25 billion CFU: • Reduce the risk of Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea in hospitalized patients (2) • Significantly improved the Symptom Severity Score of patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and scores for quality of life, days with pain and satisfaction with bowel habit compared to placebo, when taken for 8 weeks (1).
Serving Size: 1 Capsule Servings Per Container: 120
Amount per Serving: Probiotic Consortium 10 billion CFU contains:
Recommended Dosage: Adults and Children (4 years and older): Take one capsule two times daily with meals, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
Risk Information: If you are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea or severe abdominal pain; or if you have an immune compromised condition, do not use. If symptoms of digestive upset occur, worsen or persist beyond three days, discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Quality Assurance Tamper-resistant package. Do not use if outer seal is missing or broken. Store under refrigeration (below 46˚F).
This product does not contain: wheat, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. The capsules are made from 100% pure vegetable sources, free of preservatives and additives.
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.

I recently went on a paleo version of a low FODMAP diet. To help assist my results I started taking this probiotic too. I was symptom free by the end of the month. My stomach was no longer feeling bad and I will leave out the other undesired symptoms I was no longer feeling! Going to continue to take these probiotics daily to maintain the good bacteria.

The product might be good for some, but I have feelings of nausea shortly after taking 1 capsule. I've tried it on an empty stomach and also with my meal, and the feeling is the same. This item was purchased at a reputable store, kept refrigerated there and at home. I now have one and half bottles of this expensive probiotic that will go to waste.
Nutritionist Response:When a product is purchased from our site, we would have worked with the client to see if taking 1/2 capsule was okay, if not, we would have reported the reaction to Genestra/Seroyal and requested a refund based on what was reported.These probiotics are typically well tolerated by 99% of the people I recommend them to, but occasionally they may not sit well with everyone due to a person's body chemistry. Also, the tolerable dose may vary from person to person. They should be taken with a meal or after food to help the absorption of these probiotics.

I travel to India every few years and I never go without these probiotics. I had an upset stomach from some mild exposure to bacteria. I took a bunch of these capsules and felt better within 20 minutes. Great for everyday use, but indispensable for travel! They stayed potent in my bag without a clod pack.
