Genestra Brands HMF Baby F Probiotic Formula, 66g
- Reviews (0)
To help support children’s gastrointestinal health and promote a favourable balance of gut flora, HMF Baby F provides 10 billion colony forming units of human-sourced friendly bacteria per dose, along with some food and fibre for them to help them take root. It’s safe even for newborns, and is easy to administer since it dissolves easily into formula, water, or milk.
In addition to helping the digestive system, this product from Genestra may also reduce the risk of your child developing an atopic disease like eczema later in life, or reduce their allergic response to eggs or cow’s milk.
Studies have shown infants raised solely with baby formula tend to miss acquiring some types of healthy bacteria that are normally transmitted through breast milk. That can affect the overall mix of friendly bacteria in the intestines, which assist with digestion and nutrient absorption, which in turn helps fortify the immune system. Accordingly, this probiotic supplement is designed for formula-fed babies.
“HMF” stands for “Human Micro Flora” (these probiotic strains are derived from humans).
Each 1.1 g scoop contains:
a 10 billion CFU (Colony Forming Units) Probiotic Consortium, consisting of:
Bifidobacterium bifidum (CUL-20).
Bifidobacterium animalis subspecies lactis (CUL-34).
Lactobacillus salivarius (CUL-61), and
Lactobacillus paracasei (CUL-08)
Other ingredients: Transgalactooligosaccharides(GOS)(derived from milk; these are a prebiotic fibre similar to the oligosaccharides which occur naturally in breast milk**), and fructooligosaccharides (or FOS, which acts as an energy source for the probiotics to help them flourish).
Children (1-4 years): Put one scoop of HMF Baby F in a glass, add water or milk, and mix. Take once daily with a meal, at least two to three hours before or after administering any antibiotics (if applicable), or as recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
Store under refrigeration (below 8C).
Do not use if intended recipient has an immune compromised condition. Consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use if they are experiencing nausea, fever, vomiting, bloody diarrhoea or severe abdominal pain. If symptoms of digestive upset occur, worsen or persist beyond three days, discontinue use and consult your healthcare practitioner.

In a recent clinical trial for whether probiotics prevented eczema, infants aged from zero to six months given the HMF Baby F probiotic formula did not have more visits to the doctor or “adverse events” incidence and were not assessed by their mothers as having worse health compared to the control group; see: “Probiotics in the prevention of eczema: a randomised controlled trial.” Archives of Disease in Childhood. 2014; Nov.
