Developed by award-winning microbiologist lichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., and research scientists from Okayama University, Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula combines ancient Japanese fermentation techniques with modern technology. Twelve strains of lactic acid bacteria, including super potent TH10, are used in the fermentation of vegetables, fruits, seaweeds and mushrooms. Our biogenic matrix (the rich culture medium pre-biotic and natural organic acids) improves the gut environment and is what distinguishes this product from mere probiotics.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula differs from the Original Formula in that after 3 years of fermentation, it receives two additional years of maturing. Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics is a registered trademark of Essential Formulas.
Dr Ohhira's Probiotics Formula Benefit::
- normalizes the micro flora (lactic acid bacteria) in the intestinal tract,
- reestablishes the colon's optimum pH level,
- suppresses the growth of bad bacteria,
- stimulates the immune system,
- fortifies the body's ability to absorb nutrients,
- provides complex B vitamins, antioxidants, minerals & amino acids.
Probiotics Professional formula is guaranteed to re-populate the colon with good microflora that is essential to a healthy immune system and overall good health.
The CFU (Colony-Forming Units) of the friendly bacteria in Dr. Ohhira's Original Formula is 900 million/capsule. The CFU of the friendly bacteria in the Dr. Ohhira's Professional Formula is 600 million/capsule. The additional processing time that goes into the professional line is what causes the reduction in CFU. However, the additional processing time increases the levels of organic acids and micronutrient by-products, which is what makes the professional formula more beneficial than the original formula.
Dr. Ohhiras's Probiotics Professional Formula is 100% vegan, no dairy, soy or gluten. Refrigeration is not required.
SUGGESTED USAGE: 2 capsules daily or as directed by your health professional. (Children under age 6: 1 capsule daily.) For best results, take 1 capsule with water twice a day on an empty stomach. If benefits are desired in the stomach (e.g. heartburn or an unsettling meal) the capsules may be chewed. Temporary reactions such as minor bloating or a mild laxative or constipating effect are signs that the beneficial bacteria are remodeling, detoxifying and improving the gut environment. (If such transition effects last more than 14 days, consult your health professional).
