Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics contains 12 strains of lactic acid bacteria including the potent TH10. They are grown in a natural non-dairy medium that produces 10 vitamins, 8 minerals and 18 amino acids. The nutrients are in bacteria-sized doses so they can safely be added to any supplement program. Four organic acids, fructooligosaccharides (FOS), bacteriocins and enzymes develop during the natural temperature fermentation process. The enteric coated capsule ensures delivery of the capsule's contents to the colon without the need for preservatives or additives. Stable at room temperature.
Dr. Ohhira�s Probiotics by Essential Formulas is an evolutionary leap in probiotic science. Not only is the GI tract�s delicate micro flora reestablished but immune functions are enhanced and regular bowel movements are supported. Toxic digestive by products are eliminated and optimal pH of the colon is maintained with regular use. Each capsule contains biologically active fermented paste formulated after decades of scientific research by Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira and his Japanese research team.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics rebalances the body's delicate micro flora, enhances immunity and supports healthy bowel movements. These beneficial bacteria, proven to adhere in the colon, eliminate toxic digestive byproducts, support the lining of the GI tract (essential for nutrient absorption) and maintain optimal pH of the colon by making organic acids. Each capsule contains a unique biologically-active fermented paste - the achievement of decades of award-winning scientific research by Japanese microbiologist.
The contents of each capsule are safe for use by adults, children and infants.
Suggested Usage: Loading dose for first 60 capsules (i.e, 5 caps in morning and 5 caps at bedtime. Best taken on an empty stomach with water). Thereafter, 2 to 4 caps per day, half in morning and half at bedtime. Children under age 6 - one capsule daily. Excessive consumption may have a mild laxative effect.
