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."

      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!

      I have been very happy with the effects of my taking HMO pre and probiotics. They seem to have a synergistic effect in helping my digestive system to function regularly. As someone who has had an issue with this for a very long time, this is indeed a welcome change. Great product!

      More Energy, Better Sleep, Better Brain

      I was very ready to discard the idea of buying yet another prebiotic or prebiotic product because after decades of trying the best brands and the fanciest and most advanced of those types of products, they all failed to give me any benefits. Still, for some reason I don't understand, I still tried this product and it has greatly benefited my energy, sleep and brain. That shocking but good surprise led me to find studies about it and, yes, they do exist. Remember to drink plenty of clean water. Very, very, very highly recommended!!

      More energie

      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.
