PureHMO® super prebiotic is a fermented high-purity human milk oligosaccharide with multiple health benefits, originally found in mother's milk. This super prebiotic capsules feature 30 servings of capsuled HMO 2'FL (1800 mg) with no synthetic fillers. 

  • Promote Digestive Health: supports the growth of 180 Billion CFU probiotics per serving, e.g. Bifidobacterium, and promotes a healthy gut environment. 
  • Support Immune Functions: HMOs are more effective than non-human prebiotics in stimulating the body's natural immune system, blocking pathogens and viruses, and reducing inflammation.

      Scientific Studies On HMO

      expert opinion review stars

      Support Gut Microbiota, Immune System

      "human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) play an important role in gut microbiota colonization and gut immune barrier establishment, and thereby contribute to the maturation of the immune system in early life."


      expert opinion review stars

      Feed Akkermansia muciniphila

      "the capacity of A. muciniphila to utilize human milk will enable its survival in the early life intestine and colonization of the mucosal layer in early life, warranting later life mucosal and metabolic health."


      expert opinion review stars

      Promote Bifidobacteria

      "The human gut microbiota established during infancy has persistent effects on health. In vitro studies have suggested that human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) in breast milk promote the formation of a bifidobacteria-rich microbiota in infant guts."


      expert opinion review stars

      Restore Gut Barrier Functions

      "With the demonstrated safety, tolerance, and impact of HMOs on the adult gut microbiota in clinical trials, this study supports the potential use of HMOs as a novel strategy to restore or promote gut barrier function in adults."

      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!

      Noticing a big difference

      I had heard about this product on a podcast aabout SIBO. I am someone who has repeatedly got SIBO, went through a cleanse, only to get SIBO again down the road. I thought I would take a proactive approach and feed the good bacteria instead of killing the bad. So far, I can notice a hige difference in my gut. I can tolerate dairy (before I couldnt) and coffee. My bowel movements and full and regular. I do not have stomach pain, gas, burping, or bad breath. I plan to continue usage after I am out.

      Working well so far

      I've been taking this in the morning for a little over a week now and I can tell that I'm already less reactive to food. My symptoms of bloating, stomach tenderness, and nausea are improving.

      Helping my gut

      This product paired with a bifidobacterium bacteria probiotic is really helping my gut!


      My gut was completely messed up for months after having an emergency appendectomy with complications.

      A friend recommended taking this with a probiotic, and it has made all the difference! Highly recommend!

      Easy Process

      The process of ordering from Layer was super easy and the quality of the product I ordered based on my Naturopaths recommendation was "PureHMO" Prebiotic capsules to help drive out an Ecoli bacteria. I own a health food store and am going to bring this line in to help my customers clear up their gastro issues and increase their overall health.
      Very excited about this product.
