HMF Intensive by Genestra
Intensive-level Probiotic Formula
HMF Intensive is an intestinal health support formula that promotes a healthy gut microflora. Supports optimal gastrointestinal health. Provides 25 billion CFU per day of two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
HMF Intensive Capsules 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.
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.

HMF Intensive Probiotic formula for intensive use
• Contributes to a natural healthy gut flora
• 25 billion CFU per capsule
• Formulated based on strains shown to be effective in colonizing the intestinal environment
• Also suitable for long-term maintenance regimes
HMF Intensive contributes to a natural healthy gut flora with a concentrated dose of 25 billion CFU per capsule. HMF Intensive is intended for short-term “intensive” usage – rapid replenishment of an optimal gut flora composition – although it is also appropriate for use in long-term maintenance regimes.
CLINICALLY PROVEN STRAINS Human MicroFlora (HMF) 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 HMF products shipped with an ice pack?
Not from October – May. Genestra’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 HMF products with an ice pack for these reasons:
Genestra has added in 40% more probiotic than what the label guarantees per bottle. For example, HMF 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 HMF 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.
Both HMF Intensive and HMF Travel are shelf stable, meaning they can are fine to be left outside the fridge but in a cool, dark place (kitchen cupboard). All other HMF probiotics need to be left in the fridge.
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.
