SuperHMO® Prebiotic for Kids - 5 HMOs

  • No Other Prebiotics Can Replace HMOs: HMOs have unique structures and functions that help with childrens' brain development, defend against pathogens and viruses, and promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
  • Brain and Cognitive Development: HMOs, when consumed by the probiotics in the gut, produce metabolites that fuel childrens' brain and cognitive development. This is why infant formulas have started to include HMOs since 2015.
  • Premium 5-HMO mix for Kids (Age 1+): 2'-Fucosyllactose (2'-FL), Lacto-N-tetraose (LNT), Lacto-N-neotetraose (LNnT), 6'-Sialyllactose (6'SL), and 3'-Sialyllactose (3'SL) . This combination better mimics the composition of the true HMO profile found in breast milk. 


Happy Tummy

HMOs feed the good bugs in the gut and support a balanced and healthy gut environment for kids.

Smart Brain

HMO, when metabolized in the gut, provides essential nutrients for babies' brain development. It's a clinically proven benefit for infants and children.

Strong Immune System

It is estimated ~70% of the immune system resides in the gut, so it's crucial to give your baby the building blocks they need from the start.

5 Types of HMOs

5 of the most abundant HMOs in human milk: 2'-Fucosyllactose (2'-FL), Lacto-N-tetraose (LNT), Lacto-N-neotetraose (LNnT), 6'-Sialyllactose (6'SL), and 3'-Sialyllactose (3'SL)

How It Works

Experts' Opinions on Human Milk Oligosaccharides

Frontiers in Pediatrics

"HMOs were first described as prebiotic substrates for the infant gut microbiota, promoting the establishment of bifidobacteria"

Nutrition News

"The HMOs and nucleotides (an essential building block in the body) found in breast milk support a baby's digestive system and help strengthen their immune system."

Journal of Functional Foods, APC Microbiome Institute and School of Microbiology,

"HMOs also directly modulate host-epithelial immune responses and can selectively reduce binding of pathogenic bacteria and viruses to the gut epithelium preventing the emergence of a disease. "

American Society for Microbiology Org

"Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) may provide health benefits to infants partly by shaping the development of the early-life intestinal microbiota."


We use 5 major types of HMOs in our formulation and tout the highest purity possible.
Other brands only contain one type of HMO and a lot of junk ingredients and fillers.

Children older than 12 months can take SuperHMO for Kids Powder. By age one, many babies have stopped getting breast milk and if they missed this extremely important prebiotic fiber (human milk oligosaccharide), it is safe to supplement with it at this time.

It depends.

If the infant formula already contains HMO, you do not need to add extra HMO into your child's diet. If the infant formula does not contain HMO and your baby is older than 12 months, you can give him/her HMO under the supervision of their pediatrician.

No more constipation!

My son, age 6, really struggled with constipation after starting Kindergarten. He has been on this product 3 weeks and has gone every single day! He also stopped complaining of stomach aches. So thankful to have found this supplement!

Sensitive Kid Approved

My son has ASD and food sensitivities (including dairy). We were very nervous to try this but he’s been tolerating it just fine when we titrate up slow. I can’t wait to re-test his microbiome and see all the gains in the coming months. The autism community is buzzing about this amazing product and its ability to help our precious children! Thank you, Layer Origin!

For toddler development

I add this HMO to my toddlers' homemade milk because HMO is found in human breast milk and is essential for the development of a growing child based on my research. I'm so grateful to have found this product here. This greatly benefits the gut health which helps the entire body. A healthy gut is essential for proper whole body functioning. My toddler doesn't notice any difference in the taste of her milk since I started adding this HMO.

Great product!

Better than most probiotics I have tried. It’s my 9th bottle.
