Ingredients & DescriptionImprove your internal flora with a system that is much more than an ordinary probiotic. Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula combines ancient fermentation skills and modern science to create a powerful formula that changes the gastro-intestinal, GI, environment to restore all healthful strains and to discourage the bad. Developed by renowned microbiologist Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D. and a team of distinguished research scientists from Okayama University this powerful and unique product was brought to the US by Essential Formula’s Inc. and Michael Schoor. Several years ago, Michael was traveling in the Far East when he became ill. Doctor’s prescribed the local remedy, which worked for better than any traditional medicine he had been given in the past. So intrigued by his quick and complete recovery, Michael decided to seek out the source of this wonderful discovery. His journey lead him to meet Dr.Ohhira and the rest is history.

Suggested use: 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 bacteria are remodeling, detoxifying and improving the gut environment.
