    A Powerful Probiotic

    HLC Intensive from Pharmax is a potent probiotic supplement specifically designed for more difficult issues during which beneficial bacteria may need to be re-introduced to your digestive system.

    Those situations include right after undergoing antibiotic therapy, for short-term reduction of sensitivity to allergens, and to sustain remission of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).

    HLC stands for human lactic commensals. They are human derived probiotic strains including Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. bifidus, and the only product line of their kind in North America.

    Product Details

    • May support post antibiotic therapy
    • May support immunomodulation of allergy for short/medium term
    • Gut dysbiosis/remission in IBS
    • Therapeutic potency of 24 billion cells per capsule
    • Two year shelf life if refrigerated, three months at room temperature
    • Nearly 100% survival rate in a full stomach
    • Ideal for vegans and vegetarians

    HLC organisms have been successfully used in numerous clinical trials. It's been found that the friendly bacteria used in HLC Intensive have a much better chance of reaching your body's GI tract intact and active.

    The acid in your stomach is meant to be a barrier to potentially harmful microbes. But that can be a problem as digestive juices may also take out probiotics before you receive any benefit. HLC Intensive has a much higher survival rate than other probiotics. Even on an empty stomach more than 50% of the organisms survived.

    Keep in mind - while you can take HLC Intensive on an empty stomach - it will be most effective if taken with a meal.

    Research:
    HLC - Proven in clinical trials: Probiotics from the HLC range are continuously tested and shown to be effective in independent, placebo controlled, clinical trials. All such studies get published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Results from recent clinical studies are outlined below.

    Trial 1: Undertaken at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, U.K.
    Aim: Reduction in post-antibiotic re-growth of potentially pathogenic facultative microorganisms
    Results: HLC Intensive significantly prevented post antibiotic increase in Staphylococci, Enterobacteriaceae and Enterococci. These microorganisms are associated with post-antibiotic infection and overgrowth as well as the acquisition and transfer of antibiotic resistance.
    Trial 2: Undertaken at Addenbrookes Hospital, Cambridge, U.K.
    Aim: Prevention of post-antibiotic overgrowth of Clostridium difficile in hospitalized patients
    Results: HLC Intensive lowered frequency of Clostridium difficile infection and overgrowth to the extent that justified its use in all hospitalized patients undertaking antibiotic therapy.

    The Best I've Found
    By None from Washington State on 04/03/2014
    Pros: The positive effects are noticeable.
    Cons: Few capsules.
    Recommended: Yes
    Although there aren't very many capsules per bottle HLC Intensive are the most potent probiotic I've ever used. They are however, meant to be a primary treatment so there are sufficient capsules for that and maintenance can be done with a lower potency capsule. In as little as two weeks they have made a very noticeable positive change in my GI system. I have suffered from a floral imbalance for years and these are helping to put me on the right track.

    HLC Intensive probiotics
    By Linda from Ridgefield, CT on 04/02/2013
    Pros: Extremely helpful customer service, a delight to order from
    Cons: expensive product
    Recommended: Yes
    HLC Intensive is the only probiotic my health care practitioner will recommend, as it is the only one she is sure contains no dairy (I am dairy sensitive). I won't know for sure if it is effective until I am re-tested for intestinal flora.
