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 five years running.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics is a truly unique probiotic for these reasons: 1) it contains 12 synergistic strains of probiotics and 2) Dr. Ohhira has developed a growth/production process that requires from 3 to 5 years of fermentation. This extended fermentation process enables the strains of bacteria to grow and proliferate, and also results in the production of substantial metabolic byproducts such as organic acids, short-chain fatty acids, various vitamins, amino acids and other accessory nutrients. These are all of the beneficial compounds that are normally produced by probiotics in the GI tract. With Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics, you get the 12 strains of probiotics plus all these other beneficial compounds.
The Professional Formula vs. Original Formula:
Dr. Ohhira Probiotics Professional Formula has identical ingredients to Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula but fermented an additional two years from 3 years to 5 years. Tweaked during the fifth year of processing to provide organic acids that are more robust than those contained in the Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula. In addition, the potency of the micronutrient by-products is maximized to expedite the adhesion of the good bacteria in the colon. The CFU of the lactic acid bacteria may be less than in the Original Formula due to the natural variation of ingredients and the more complex manufacturing process.
The Professional Formula is recommended for those individuals with a specific health condition. The Orginal Formula is most often used to maintain overall good health.
