Layer Origin Nutrition's new PureHMO + Colostrum combines two of the best substances known to man for supporting the immune system and digestion.
HMO is heralded by nutrition and fitness experts such as Ben Greenfield, Joel Greene, Dr. Rhonda Patrick, and Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, author of Fiber Fueled.
Colostrum has been around longer than HMO and in this product it works in concert with the HMO.
Each 4 capsule serving contains: 520mg HMO (2'-Fucosyllactose) and 1560mg Colostrum.
The power of colostrum and HMO combine in this product to support many health functions and give you an edge when it comes to your nutrition and wellness.
The colostrum used in this product is whole, non-defatted, keeping all the nutrients it is supposed to have.
Unlike human colostrum, bovine colostrum does not contain oligosaccharide prebiotics.
The addition of human milk oligosaccharide into the bovine colostrum makes it closer to human colostrum, which supports numerous health functions.
Mother’s milk isn’t just for babies anymore. Human milk oligosaccharide is the third most common solid in breast milk, after lactose and fat. HMO escapes digestion, allowing it to reach the colon where it feeds beneficial bacteria.
HMOs may explain why breast-fed babies tend to fare better than formula-fed. In babies, HMOs strengthen the developing immune system, helping fight infection and inflammation while aiding brain development, according to early research.New studies show those benefits may extend to people of all ages, fitting neatly into consumers’ growing fascination with probiotics -- the “good” bacteria that can help keep a human body healthy.
HMOs could lead to treatments for adult ailments such as irritable bowel syndrome, allergies and even the aging brain. An animal study at one lab showed that HMO stimulated the vagus nerve, a superhighway communicating from gut to brain. This has the potential to help both brain development early in life and, later in life, brain decline.
Be sure to choose the right human milk oligosaccharide supplement for you, whether it is a 2'-FL supplement, or one that is a combination — a 2'-Fucosyllactose, Lacto-N-neotetraose supplement.
