HLC products are powerful probiotics for relief of intestinal health problems. These Human Lactic Commensals (HLC) are human-derived strains including Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. bifidus, and the only product line of their kind in North America. All other probiotics are made from animal or dairy strains and may not adhere as well to the human gastrointestinal tract.
During and after antibiotic therapy
Acute intestinal upset
Digestive upsets (bloating, gas)
Bowel problems (diarrhea, IBS)
Excessive alcohol consumption
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

We do NOT recommend this product if you have intestinal yeast issue, or if you have severe GI issues. You must first start with a probiotic free of FOS such as HLC Intensive Capsules Pharmax.
I've been using these packets of HLC Intensive as well as the HLC High Potency since May 2001 and they have largely improved my digestion and kept me free of Candida. I keep plenty stocked in my freezer and they are perfect for my conference travel too since traveling always seems to mess up my system. Wouldn't leave home without my probiotics! Within hours, I can count that my stomach is back to normal.
HLC Synbiotic Intensive is the highest potency HLC product containing a minimum of 130 billion CFU of L. acidophilus, B. bifidum, B. lactis, and L. salivarius in each packet. Each of the three different strains attach in different areas of the epithelial tissue in the intestinal tract (small and large intestines). This probiotic is a microbial replacement program for the gastrointestinal tract intended for 7 to 14 days depending on the severity of the problem.
HLC Synbiotic Intensive will crowd out yeast and other undesirable organisms which result from use of antibiotics, chemotherapy, oral contraceptives, and hormone replacement therapy. Also helpful for chronic parasitic and fungal infections as well as Candida overgrowth.
HLC Synbiotic Intensive has a sweet peach flavor due its high concentrations of 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 also for its flavor.
Are HLC products shipped with an ice pack? Usually, they are not. But you may request one during checkout in the "comments" field if temperatures are hot in your area. The manufacturer Pharmax states that it is not necessary to ship with an ice pack due to their new freeze drying technology and research. They have also added in 50% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HLC Synbiotic Intensive is guaranteed to have 130 billion L. acidophilus and bifidus per serving, but there are 170 billion present at time of manufacturing and it is kept frozen until shipping.
The manufacturer has increased stability allowing the probiotics to last over 3 months at room temperature holding their GUARANTEED minimum potency on label!
You will receive your HLC 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 and store my HLC 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.
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.
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 contracted Strep throat and was given a Z Pack nearly a year ago. The z pack did wonders on my strep, but completely ruined my guts. I was in almost continual intestinal pain. I'd tried a handful of probiotics to try and restore my gut flora, but to no avail. After only a few days on this probiotic, I began feeling like my old self and had more energy. Will definitely continue to use.

Each packet should be taken with food. I experienced a lot of gas when using this product. I tried to us it at the dinner time and then would have the whole night to cope. Also, it can clump up so you need to stir it good and keep it stirred.

Pharmax makes very high quality probiotics.
I felt this one was overkill on the FOS (apricot powder). Made candida worse and had to follow up with Diflucan. HLC intensive caps are highly reccomended as an alternative to this product.

My son had recurring strep for over two years before I started him on this. He takes about 1/2 teaspoon each morning and has been strep free ever since. He has missed only one day at school this year. Coincidence? I don't think so. ;)

I always have a container of this product in my freezer, and have used it many times whenever my digestive tract is under stress. Once, when dealing with a yeast infection, once when recovering from a c. dificile infection, once when dealing with a stomach flu. It is pleasant tasting and very effective. I also take it whenever I have to take an antibiotic of any kind.

I have a cat with IBD, and we''re doing everything we can to reduce the inflammation in his lower intestine. He''s had diarrhea since he was a kitten, over a year now. It appears to be some kind of environmental stress and/or allergic reaction, but we don''t know what''s causing it nor what makes it better, in all certainty. This product does appear to be helping; at least, it doesn''t seem to be hurting and that''s what I stay thankful for. Finn stays on a diet of poached turkey breast, Hill''s Science Diet z/d and Iams Hairball Remedy kibble. Finn takes this along with Tegricel colostrum which he loves, and the Permeability Complex. I''ve been treating him since he was 12 weeks old, over a year now. We just keep hoping he''ll finally get better...sometimes the diarrhea is so bad he passes fresh, dark blood; and it''s clear that it hurts him to go. My heart breaks. I just keep trying, slowly, different things, while keeping his diet steady and stable. He''s a beautiful, amazing cat and he stays cheerful and loving throughout it all.

This product was the only product to entirely relieve years of chronic yeast buildup throughout my whole body- within weeks. Chronic Fatigue symptoms and Epstein Bar Virus were eliminated entirely within a month of taking HLC sachets daily. Also HLC Intensive kept me free of any UTI and yeast build up during my entire pregnancy and during and after breast feeding. Since taking this product, most food allergies have gone away as well. I can consume dairy, wheat and yeast products without any problems. I now just take this a few times a month just to maintain good intestinal flora and a balanced system. HLC has been the only product to address and cure most stomach, yeast, bacterial, viral issues for me. I do think everyone that has taken any antibiotics should take this product for at least one or two weeks.
My infant takes the HLC for infants off and on and has never had rashes nor infections nor allergies to foods yet. This IS by far the best and most effective probiotic I"ve taken.
