Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Details

Dr. Ohhira Probiotics is the world's most popular premium probiotic supplement. It has won numerous International Supplement Awards, including Best Supplement Award,
by Better Nutrition Magazine for seven years running. 100% Vegetarian, Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Chemical Free, Non-GMO.
Since its origin over 30 years ago, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® has prided itself on purity and the pristine process that creates this perfect whole food supplement. Our nourishing prebiotic culture medium is comprised of EXCLUSIVELY pure spring water, fruits, wild vegetables, mushrooms, and seaweed. 
This carefully balanced and perfectly blended composition goes through a three-year fermentation process based on ancient Japanese traditions. Fermentation maximizes the natural health-promoting properties of each ingredient. The final result is an organic, living fusion that merges and encourages the evolution of your own exclusive internal bacteria. This, in turn, supports a healthy immune system and digestion of crucial micronutrients that your body needs to thrive and flourish.*

Not a ‘One Probiotic Fits All’ Formula

The three-year fermentation process at seasonal temperatures encourages survival of the strongest bacteria and makes the blend (12 Probiotic Strains) shelf-stable without refrigeration. Unlike other products that simply contain billions of freeze-dried non-native bacteria, Dr. Ohhira’s formula takes probiotic support to a whole new level by providing the biogenic ingredients needed to support your exclusive probiotic ‘fingerprint’.
Believe it or not, each person has his or her own distinctive blend of specific probiotic strains. Your probiotic fingerprint isn’t like anyone else’s on the planet. Think of Dr. Ohhira’s formula as your own Personal Probiotic!
Science has proven that proper bacterial balance affects every part of your body.

Add Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® to your ongoing plan for whole health and reap the benefits:

  • Balance and support your personal unique bacterial fingerprint*
  • Relieve occasional gas and heartburn*
  • Maintain healthy intestinal pH and digestive function*
  • Support the absorption of nutrients from food and other supplements*
  • Support a healthy immune system response*
  • Convenient blister-packed capsules are stable at room temperature
  • Live and viable bacteria – NEVER freeze-dried
  • Immune System Support*
  • In addition to supporting digestion, probiotics are essential for immune system function. Your gut is your first line of immune response. Approximately 70-80 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 high quality probiotic support.*

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® Original Formula by Essential Formulas is a unique blend of: 

  • PREbiotics Culture Medium – fermented vegetables and mushrooms that nourish the probiotics*
  • PRObiotics – friendly bacteria that help you digest food and support immune response*
  • POSTbiotics– pH balancing organic acids along with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids to support digestive function and whole health*

    "Took a trip to Mexico, wanted to ensure no adverse stomach issues while there. Took before every meal and never had any "tummy" problems. It is pricey, but really, can you put a price on a ruined trip spent by staying close to a washroom! Fantastic product!"

  • 10/10  Amazing probiotics!

    By Monique on Saturday, December 31, 2016 12:17 PM

    Effectiveness: 10/10

    (+) Convenient,Easy To Take,First Dose Results,Good Value

    How did you use it?:Everyday

    "I take one in the morning well before I eat as it's best to take on an empty stomach and another in the evening before I go to bed. What's nice about these probiotics is they reproduce in your system and encourage your own body to produce more of it. It is also a fermented product, so it's naturally great for your system. I do not find I have much bloating with it, but I feel the effects almost immediately. I will take a package of it and then stop for a while until I feel my body could use another dose of it, then I will purchase another package. It's not something you need to take all the time. As well, I notice I don't have as much as a paunchy stomach as I used to."
