Layer Origin Nutrition is a New York based HMO prebiotic company founded by two food scientists who met at a Cornell University lab in 2017. Both having a passion for improving human health, the two created a full line of cutting edge supplements best known for gut health improvement, immunity support, heart health, weight loss management, and blood sugar control. The technology driven brand is better known for its comprehensive line of Human Milk Oligosaccharide (HMO), an important constituent of human milk, clinically proven to reduce all symptoms associated with IBS, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome.

With multiple patent applications filed and innovative proprietary methods used for multiple products, Layer Origin Nutrition is more than just a supplement company. It’s a technology company that specializes in processes for developing the most effective nutritional products possible and now has the largest line of HMO products for adults in the world.

Founding Story

While working in a laboratory during his postdoc at Cornell University, Jason Zhang learned about HMO (human milk oligosaccharide) for the first time. He saw the wealth of research and clinical studies showing how it built the infant gut lining and immune system from scratch. Zhang also noticed how studies were starting to show similar health benefits for adults, yet there was no HMO supplement for adults on the market. He then decided to launch Layer Origin Nutrition to fill the gap and provide pure HMO prebiotic products worldwide.

Jason Zhang came up with the idea for Layer Origin Nutrition while working in a lab at Cornell University for his Post-Doctoral Fellowship. He learned about the potential and health benefits of HMO (human milk oligosaccharide) and realized that there was no one who offered HMO supplements for adults. He later began formulating blends that included HMOs such as 2'-FL and LNnT and partnered with another scientist to launch Layer Origin Nutrition.

Jason lives in Ithaca, NY with his wife, and their two children.

"I've been taking HMO prebiotics for over a month now, and I immediately noticed a difference in these products compared to other prebiotics ... my bowel movements have become more regular and comfortable (I am prone to constipation). I am also lactose intolerant and have had no reaction to the HMO in this."
