HMF Natogen is a combination of four strains of proprietary human-sourced probiotics that promotes intestinal health in young children. Babies born preterm, by Caesarian section, or those exposed to peri- or postnatal antibiotics display reduced colonization of intestinal bacteria.1 Probiotics are safe for young children and effectively colonize the intestines, critical barriers that selectively allow absorption or promote the excretion of dangerous substances.2 The human intestinal tract contains more than 400 bacterial species, and the bacterial balance needs to be maintained for healthy intestines.3 Probiotics compete with pathogenic bacteria for colonization of the gastrointestinal tract and promote the presence of beneficial bacteria.2,3 In addition to decreasing bacterial survival, probiotics strengthen the epithelial barrier.2 They control permeability by mediating tight junction integrity, and prevent pathogenic adherence to epithelial cells by increasing mucin release on intestinal surfaces.2 Collectively, this decreases the entry of bacteria from the intestine into circulation.2 Probiotics transiently impact the host’s microflora; once their ingestion ends, their counts decrease or disappear.4 As the microflora composition in children is relatively unchanged after infancy, it significantly depends on the diet, even more so than in adults.

It is not neccessary but we ship with ice pack. Please refer to the following info.
after extensive product testing and new freeze drying technology performed by Genestra, it was concluded that the ice pack did not make a difference during shipping since the product potency was still well over 100% label claims when shipped with ice or no ice. The manufacturer states that it is no longer necessary to ship the HMF products with an ice pack.
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 3 months at room temperature un-refrigerated. 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.
