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). (Patent-pending) 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)

Support Digestive and Immune Health

"HMOs are a very important component of breast milk. They contribute to the development of the infant’s microflora and immune system. By acting via various mechanisms, they protect against many infections and alleviate their course. "

Block Pathogenic Bacteria

"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. "

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.

This has been a game-changer for my toddler's gut health. She struggled with intermittent constipation until we found this product, and it has also helped reduce her eczema flares. We have completed stool analyses pre- and post-intervention, and the results suggest it is really working. We mix it in a little apple juice and water and she takes it down, no problem.


This stuff is amazing. Couldn’t find anything similar elsewhere!

SuperHMO® Prebiotic for Kids - 5 HMOs

I have been giving my son this HMO powder. Im thankful that there is a option for children. He loves kefir smoothies so it is easy to add it too without any changes in flavor.

Has really been helping

My 12 year old has struggled with tummy aches and regularity on and off since she was a toddler. She’s been taking this daily for about 2 weeks and it is really been helping her go almost daily! I’ve been taking it alongside her and I’ve also noticed less bloating and more regularity. I’m excited for her to continue on this and I plan to order the grown up version for myself. Thanks, Layer Origin!!

Helped with seasonal allergies

This product helped my 12 year old with seasonal allergies SO much. Every change in season was tough for us with allergy symptoms that and since taking this product we saw dramatic positive changes. I started my toddler on it and we are slowly working up to the recommended dosage for my toddler but with my 12 year old we jumped into the full dosage and results have been great!!
