Description Usage Supplement Facts Intestinal Support, Neurological Support HMF Neuro Capsule is a unique preparation containing various strains and species of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria to specifically assist with autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD).* The new Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus crispatus species have the capability of breaking down the exorphin peptides which can be produced in excess in the intestines of autistic children. Bifidobacterium bifidum, Bifidobacterium lactis, and the two strains of L.acidophilus assist with mercury detoxification and helps to heal the mucosal barrier and restore the intestinal tract. Research show that autistic children have significantly higher gastrointestinal tract disorders, and have increased intestinal permeability consequently leading to the accumulations of toxins such as heavy metals, in particular mercury, and undigested proteins in the lymph, circulatory and central nervous systems, triggering abnormalities. Undigested proteins, from foods containing gluten and casein, can lead to the production of aberrant peptides with opioid activity of exorphins in the intestines. HMF Neuro Capsules help address and maintain the integrity of the intestinal tract, and is indicated for ADHD and for all ASDs such as autism, Asperger's Syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, Rett Syndrome, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified.* HMF Neuro Capsules contain ingredients to soothe the brain‚ as well as various strains of probiotics to combat the overgrowth of bad intestinal bacteria. HMF Neuro Capsules include: Two strains of Lactobacillus acidophilus‚ to reduce yeast and fungal growth Bifidobacterium bifidum and Bifidobacterium lactis‚ to help reduce toxin buildup and promote intestinal health Lactobacillus rhamnosus‚ which aids in digestion and promotes the absorption of the nutrients L-Glutamine‚ which is an amino acid that may increase memory and soothe erratic behavior Shipment and Shelf Life of Genestra Probiotics When you receive your package containing Genestra probiotics‚ it may not arrive with an ice pack as many probiotics will, or if an ice pack is included, it will be melted. This is because Genestra probiotics are made with a new freeze-drying technology that enables the product to retain potency during periods of shipment. The potency has been tested with and without ice packs during shipping and the results indicated that the ice packs did not make a difference. In addition‚ Genestra has added as much as 50% more probiotic than what is guaranteed on the label to account for any potential losses during packaging‚ processing or shipping. Probiotic Intensity With many competing brands of probiotic supplements‚ it is difficult to be confident that what is listed on the label is actually what is contained in each capsule. This is due to bacterial die-off during the packaging and shipping process. Genestra's probiotic supplements guarantee that at a minimum the listed amount on the label is what is actually arrives at your door. Additionally, Genestra manufactures it's probiotics to correspond with demand; this simply means that it does not sit on a shelf for months at a time. Genestra ensures that you are receiving a fresh product with 50% more bacteria than is listed on the label. Storage Store your HMF Intensive at room temperature for up to 30 days and Genestra guarantees that you will still get at least the amount of each strain listed on the package. *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.
