Additional product info:
HLC High Potency Capsules is a moderate level, long-term maintenance formula. Bifidobacterium bifidum and Lactobacillus lactis are found more commonly in the composition of the intestinal flora of non-allergic children (3),(4). In addition, HMF Forte is indicated for dysbiosis (5), and symptoms associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) (1) which has also been shown in human double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies, at a core consortium of 25 billion CFU:
• Reduce the risk of Clostridium difficile associated diarrhea in hospitalized patients (2)
• Significantly improved the Symptom Severity Score of patients suffering from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and scores for quality of life, days with pain and satisfaction with bowel habit compared to placebo, when taken for 8 weeks (1).
