HMF Natogen probiotic formula provides Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus paracasei and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis, which contribute to a healthy intestinal microflora in infants and children (0-4 years). Studies show that microflora imbalances in the newborn can increase the risk of childhood allergy and susceptibility to infectious disease, leading diminished immunological protection, nutritional malabsorption and decreased capacity to detoxify harmful compounds in later years. The Lactobacillus acidophilus in the HMF Natogen will target and stimulate the mucosal immune system and will colonize the upper gastrointestinal tract. 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.

In a base of lactose similar to breast milk for maximum assimilation. The lactose base is derived from cow’s milk. The lactose base is an important energy source for breast and bottle fed babies derived from milk but free of casein.
If your child has an immune compromised condition, consult your healthcare practitioner. If they are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhea or sever abdominal pain, consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. If symptoms of digestive upset occur, worsen or persist beyond three days, discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner.
Bottle Fed Babies: Mix apx 1/16 tsp into baby bottle (half of 1/8 tsp) once or twice a day.
Breast Fed Babies: Press clean finger into powder and have baby suckle finger. Or use a tiny plastic spoon (i.e. used at the ice cream/gelato store for flavor tasting). These fit perfectly into the Neonate bottle and then into their tiny mouth, and easily smears onto their tongue. Then follow it with a little breast milk, or let them mash it around their mouth with saliva. They may not even notice they have that tiny bit of powder in their mouth (it tastes slightly sweet). Approximately 33 mg (1 billion viable cells) will naturally adhere to the end of your finger (rough dosage idea). Repeat three times daily.
Children (1-4 years): In a glass add water or milk to one scoop of HMF Natogen and mix. Take once daily with a meal, at least two to three hours before or after taking antibiotics, or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
