HMF® Forte is a combination of four human strains of proprietary probiotics that help promote daily gastrointestinal health in adults and children.
Included in this blend are two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus (CUL-60 & CUL-21), Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis (CUL-34) and Bifidobacterium bifidum (CUL-20) to promote colonization in both the small and large intestines. These proprietary strains were selected based on their high quality, viability, strong epithelial adherence and naturally high tolerance to stomach acid. They have also been evaluated for their effectiveness in clinical trials and are some of the most studied probiotic cultures in the world. In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study involving 138 adults, supplementation with the probiotic combination contained in HMF® Forte was found to reduce the incidence of C. difficile-associated diarrhoea in adults taking antibiotics. In addition to this research-driven probiotic blend, HMF® Forte also provides fructooligosaccharides (FOS), a prebiotic fibre to support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. This convenient shelf-stable format has guaranteed potency at expiry and may improve patient compliance.
