HMF Forte by Genestra

Promotes optimal intestinal health in adults and children*

  • Supports healthy gut microflora balance* 
  • Provides 20 billion CFU per day from two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum, and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis
HMF Forte is a unique combination of four strains of proprietary, human-sourced probiotics that helps to promote gastrointestinal health in adults and children. Supplementation with large numbers of a combination of microorganisms will help maximize intestinal colonization, supporting the growth of beneficial bacteria. Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria, the most commonly used probiotics, help colonize the intestines and mediate the permeability of epithelial cells. In a randomized, placebo-controlled trial involving 22 adults, daily supplementation with a probiotic containing Lactobacillus acidophilus supported a healthy microflora balance.*

Ideal for vegans
• Convenient capsule format increases patient compliance

Stress, medication, processed foods, environmental contaminants and lifestyle may be contributing factors which upset the delicate balance of the intestinal flora. HMF Forte is a moderate-level, long-term maintenance probiotic formula which provides two strains of proprietary human-sourced Lactobacillus acidophilus, Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis.

Magnesium Important for Muscle Health
Me: 57 year old male, 5-6, 170lbs. Slightly below average blood pressure, no diabetes or other health issues. About 25 years ago, I developed a severe muscle cramp in my right side trapezius (rear of shoulder) muscle. This was not due to any injury, it just started happening. The cramp would occur once every 1 - 2 years, and for no obvious reason. It would be so severe that I would not be able to turn my head without a lot of pain. My self-diagnosis was for muscle pain, take an anti-inflammatory like aspirin or ibuprofen. That took care of most of the pain, and the cramp would go away in about 2 weeks. I changed health care provider about 2 years ago, and went in for yet another cramping episode. My doctor prescribed Vicodin for the immediate pain, and recommended that I start taking this Metagenics Mag Glycinate 400mg/day. It does have a laxative effect at first (like milk of magnesia), but the body adapts to it. I started taking 100mg/day, and over a 2-week period built up to 400mg/day without any serious side effects. The biggest effect by far though, is that I have not had that muscle pain recur, and, I sleep better at night, and, my GI tract just *feels* better. I don't think it matters what brand of magnesium supplement one buys, but it needs to be of the highly absorbable type for it to be effective. Also, the mature 50 year old daily vitamins I have been taking contain only 50mg of magnesium, and there is no indication that it is highly absorbable. I did a little research (see footnote 1), and learned that as an omnivorous species most of our magnesium has historically come from dark, leafy vegetables. However, because of modern mass-production farming techniques (profit-based, not nutrition-based), a lot of the magnesium has been bred out of the vegetables that used to contain it. Spinach, for example, is high in magnesium: 1 cup or 180g contains 40% RDA, but spinach is also high in sodium. And, you would need to eat A LOT of spinach every day just to get to 400mg/day.
