HLC Intensive Capsules by Pharmax
The HLC products are powerful probiotics for intestinal health. These Human Lactic Commensals (HLC) are human-derived strains including Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum. Most other probiotics are made from animal or dairy strains and may not adhere as well to the human gastrointestinal tract.
HLC Intensive features:
• Contains no Fructo-oligosacharides (FOS). • High dose intestinal health formula • Promotes a healthy gut microflora • Provides 25 billion CFU per day of two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis. Each of the strains attach in different areas of the epithelial tissue in the intestinal tract (small and large intestines).
HLC Intensive Capsules provide four strains of proprietary human-sourced probiotics that promote optimal intestinal health in children and adults. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria are the most commonly used probiotics and are effective in colonizing 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. 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.

These are the most potent probiotic capsules you'll find anywhere. They are my favorite since when I need to take probiotics, I want the strongest stuff available. No messing around. I used these HLC Intensive caps along with Broad Spectrum Complex by Pharmax to get rid of parasites I got while in Peru. On several occasions, I have offered my house guests HLC Intensive when they have serious indigestion, and within 30-60 mintues they have no more symptoms.
HLC Intensive will crowd out yeast and other undesirable organisms which result from use of antibiotics, weakened immune system, poor diet, oral contraceptives, hormone replacement therapy, or chemotherapy. Also helpful for chronic parasitic and fungal infections such as Candida overgrowth.
Intensive Phase Take 2-4 capsules daily with meals for 7-14 days.
During and Post-antibiotic therapy
Acute intestinal upset
Digestive disturbances (bloating, gas)
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Bowel problems (constipation, diarrhea, IBS)
Intermediate Phase Take 1-2 capsule daily after all meals.
Probiotics should be part of everyone's daily supplement regime. Your immune system and overall well-being revolves around the health of your intestines. HLC Probiotics are made from human strains and not dairy or animal, thus adhere and work exceptionally well in humans. These are the best quality probiotics we have ever worked with at Rockwell Nutrition.
Clinical trial: a multistrain probiotic preparation significantly reduces symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome in a double-blind placebo-controlled study E. A. WILLIAMS, J . STIMPSON, D. WANG, S. PLUMMER, I. GARAIOVA, M. E. BARKER & B. M. CORFE
SUMMARY Background The efficacy of probiotics in alleviating the symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) appears to be both strain- and dose-related.
Aim To investigate the effect of LAB4, a multistrain probiotic preparation on symptoms of IBS. This probiotic preparation has not previously been assessed in IBS.
Methods Fifty-two participants with IBS, as defined by the Rome II criteria, participated in this double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study. Participants were randomized to receive either a probiotic preparation comprising two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus CUL60 (NCIMB 30157) and CUL21 (NCIMB 30156), Bifidobacterium lactis CUL34 (NCIMB 30172) and Bifidobacterium bifidum CUL20 (NCIMB 30153) at a total of 2.5 œ 1010 cfu ⁄ capsule or a placebo for 8 weeks. Participants reported their IBS symptoms using a questionnaire fortnightly during the intervention and at 2 weeks post-intervention. Results A significantly greater improvement in the Symptom Severity Score of IBS and in scores for quality of life, days with pain and satisfaction with bowel habit was observed over the 8-week intervention period in the volunteers receiving the probiotic preparation than in the placebo group.
Conclusion LAB4 multistrain probiotic supplement may benefit subjects with IBS.
The Sheffield Trial (2008) web site is intended to provide information about the nature of IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), it's possible causes, and the latest research into new ways in which the symptoms associated with this condition can be reduced. In particular it details a recent trial of the effects of probiotics on the symptom of IBS.
The overall conclusions of this trial were that the supplementation of high numbers of probiotic bacteria to people diagnosed with IBS:
Proved effective in significantly reducing total symptom levels of IBS
Proved effective in improving quality of life in people with IBS.
That continuous supplementation was necessary to sustain the effect.
I have been taking HLC INTENSIVE CAPSULES daily for several years now! I have many digestive sensitivities and these capsules provide almost immediate relief.
I have tried many others and these are the best!

I liked the Probiotics Synergy by DFH a little better, but this one did help acne, vaginitis- didn't have the positive GI effect I was looking for. Along with the other 3 supplements recommended in the blog (OmegAvail and Phytogreens & Zinc) it's recommended for clearing acne.

My N.D. recently told me that there are only two product families she recommends with 100% enthusiasm, and one of those is the HLC line of probiotics. They are reported to be the peak in viability, strength, and effectiveness.
I'll probably be taking these the rest of my days, following years with an undiagnosed gut parasite and persistent yeast, along with Saccharomyces boulardii yeast (Florastor), which crowds out the 'bad' yeasts.

I am someone with serious gut issues. I have celiacs, dysbiosis, and multiple food sensitivities. I was in need of repair and rebuilding of my gut flora! This product is very good and doesn't contain yeast (one of my sensitivities). Because it's only taken once a day, it's easy to fit into my busy schedule. I highly recommend.

I have battled disgestive issues for decades and have tried many different supplements that never seemed to do much good. This probiotic was the first one that made a noticeable improvement, and it started within about a week of taking it. I also started using a digestive enzyme at the same time, so I can't say for certain what impact the probiotic alone would have, but the combo has made a marked improvement in my ability to digest food and stay regular without diarrhea.
