HMF Intensive 500 is our most concentrated probiotic formula yet, providing 500 billion CFU daily from a combination of five human-sourced, research-driven strains. Included in this blend are three strains of Lactobacilli and two strains of Bifidobacteria to promote colonization in both the small and large intestines.1 These proprietary strains were selected based on their high quality, viability, strong epithelial adherence and naturally high tolerance to stomach acid.2 HMF probiotics have been evaluated for their effectiveness in clinical trials over the past 15 years and are some of the most studied probiotic cultures in the world.3-8 Research has reported that strains present in HMF Intensive 500 contribute to a favourable gut flora, supplement the normal intestinal microbiota following antibiotic therapy, and help improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) in adults and children over 11 years, such as bloating, satisfaction with bowel habits, and days with pain, within six weeks.3-5 Provided in a convenient, once-daily powder format, HMF Intensive 500 is an easy way to support daily gastrointestinal health.
