HLC High Potency Powder by Pharmax
Moderate-level Probiotic Formula Intestinal health support* • Promotes a healthy gut microflora* • Support optimal gastrointestinal health* • Provides 10 billion CFU per dose of two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis • Includes 600 mg of fructooligosaccharides (FOS) per serving
HLC High Potency Powder provide four strains of proprietary human-sourced probiotics that promote optimal intestinal health in children, adolescents, and adults. Although the microflora composition in the gut is relatively steady, it can be altered by diet, stress, age, and medication use.
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.

CLINICALLY PROVEN STRAINS Human Lactic Commensals (HLC) 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 HLC products shipped with an ice pack? Not from October - May. Pharmax'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 HLC products with an ice pack for these reasons:
Pharmax has added in 40% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HLC 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 HLC 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.

Remember that if you are sensitive to sugars, the powder contains fructose, a source of food for yeast growing in the gut. Taking the powder at the time you are taking antibiotics may in fact feed the candida organisms. The HLC capsules do not have fructose so may be a better choice for some individuals sensitive to sugars, like me.

I began using this particular probiotic after my naturopathic doctor recommended it for both me and my baby. It tastes great and has minimal ingredients. I have never had a problem giving this to my baby, she likes the taste. I have done a lot of research to find something comparable but all the other ones are full of other ingredients and many lack the fos. I'm going to stick with this one for a long time. It would be nice if they offered it in individual packets for traveling.
