Dr. Ohhira's - Probiotics Original Formula Description from Essential Formulas
Dr. Ohhira merged modern science with ancient Japanese fermentation artistry to create a product unlike any other probiotic supplement on the market. A three-year fermentation process at seasonal temperatures encourages survival of the strongest bacteria and makes the blend stable without refrigeration. Add Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics to your ongoing plan for whole health and reap the benefits:
-Relieves occasional gas and heartburn
-Maintains healthy intestinal pH and digestive function
-Enhances absorption of nutrients from food and other supplements
-Supports a healthy immune system response
Yes, in addition to supporting digestion, probiotics are essential for immune system function. Your gut is your first line of immune defense. Approximately 70 percent of immune system cells reside in the digestive tract, and probiotics support those immune cells. To stay healthy, the ratio of good to bad bacteria needs to be at least 85 to 15. Today, due to stress, diet, and lifestyle factors, that ratio is very difficult to maintain unless you supplement with a high quality probiotic.
Our convenient blister-packed capsules are stable at room temperature.
