PureHMO® Human Milk Oligosaccharide Super Prebiotic Capsules

PureHMO® super prebiotic is a fermented high-purity human milk oligosaccharide with multiple health benefits, originally found in mother's milk. This super prebiotic offers more benefits than traditional oligosaccharides like GOS, FOS, and inulin due to its specific structure and unique functionality:

  • Promote Digestive Health: supports the growth of 180 Billion CFU probiotics per serving, e.g. Bifidobacterium and Akkermansia Muciniphila, and promotes a healthy gut environment. 
  • Support Immune Functions: HMOs are more effective than non-human prebiotics in stimulating the innate immune system, blocking pathogens and viruses, and reducing inflammation.
  • Improve Cognitive Function: Unlike other prebiotic and probiotic products for adults, HMO metabolites promote brain development, neuronal transmission, and cognition.

      How It Works

      Experts' Opinion On HMO

      expert opinion review stars


      "HMOs are helping to steer the gut towards immunity and steering the macrophages towards restoration of the gut lining — I actually know a lot of functional medicine doctors using this with their patients now."

      Host, The Ben greenfield fitness podcast

      expert opinion review stars


      "What you're going to find with HMOs is that they are endemic to the formation of the immune system in the infant gut — and so HMOs have very, very strong presence informing immunity in the gut."

      Author, The Immunity Code

      expert opinion review stars

      DR. RHONDA , Ph.D.

      "These beneficial bacteria produce short-chain fatty acids that prevent colonization of pathogenic bacteria in the gut. This bacteria (good bacteria promoted by HMOs) has been shown to set up the immune system."


      expert opinion review stars


      "They are food for developing gut microbiome. They are prebiotics and they actually help the right bacteria, specifically bifidobacteria, to grow. And this also helps with development of the immune system."

      No. Our HMO is technically something referred to as HiMO, which stands for Human identical Milk Oligosaccharide. It is produced via a complex fermentation and precise purification process and results in a powder that is molecularly identical to the HMO that is in human milk. All the benefits without any human milk involved.

      Yes. Research has shown that many people with lactose intolerance can tolerate up to 12 grams of lactose in one sitting, which is approximately the amount in one cup (230 ml) of milk. Layer Origin Nutrition recommends a total HMO serving size of 2.0 grams — therefore — even people with with lactose intolerance should be well below the limit of what they can tolerate, if they follow the recommended dosage.

      Believe it or not, it doesn't make a difference either way. This is because the HMO will not be digested the way that food would be digested. HMO makes its way undigested through your body down to the lower intestines, where it becomes the food for probiotic bacteria. So take HMO with food or without food. Either way is fine!

      Using Layer Origin PureHMO Prebiotic three times a day, after one week, I felt already more rested after sleeping and therefore more energised.
      I will keep using this to see what benefits it has after a longer period of time.

      Best Kept Secret

      There’s nothing quite like having healthy gut bacteria. Eating what you love without discomfort.
      Put simply: HMO’s really work.
      They play a key role in learning to digest carbs again like wheat or dairy.
      They help heal a “leaky” guy by steering immunity in the right direction.
      Do this with the apple peel powder in the morning for a couple weeks and watch the magic happen.
      I first used them over 2 years and they are now a staple every few months or if I ever feel out of balance.
