Dr. Ohhira's Professional Formula Probiotics 30 Capsules, Essential Formulas
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® Professional Formula uses 12 select probiotic strains of LIVE lactic acid bacteria in a longer 5-year fermentation process. This results in a highly concentrated formula optimized for individuals with complex digestive and immune health goals.
Powerful and Unique Biogenic GI Remodeling System
- PREbiotics Culture Medium – fermented vegetables and mushrooms that nourish the probiotics
- PRObiotics – friendly bacteria that help you digest food and support immune responsez
- POSTbiotics– pH balancing organic acids along with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids to support digestive function and whole health
This formula is known to re-populate the intestines with friendly, beneficial bacteria that are essential to a healthy digestive system, immune system and for overall wellness.
The bacteria count per capsule is roughly 780,000 - 1,000,000. However, because of the fermentation process used in development, once introduced into the digestive system, the bacteria count doubles every 30 minutes for approximately 8 hours.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula uses a unique 5 year, long-term fermentation process to produce a superior biogenically-active probiotic supplement.
This rich food matrix is fermented together with 12 strains of Lactic Acid bacteria resulting in a dense concentrate of naturally occurring prebiotics, live probiotics, and postbiotic metabolites which promote a healthy GI tract and improve gut health.
Developed by award winning microbiologist Lichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., and esteemed research scientists from Okayama University, this formula combines ancient Japanese fermentation techniques with modern technology.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula differs from the Original Formula (3 year formula) by being naturally fermented for an additional 2 years in an anaerobic environment to increase its robust biogenic medium, further supporting gut health and colonic pH.
The 12 Probiotic Strains used in Dr. Ohhira’s Formula
1. Enterococcus faecalis TH10 – The proteolytic power of Dr. Ohhira’s proprietary TH-10 strain is what distinguishes it from other Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB). Proteolytic power is the ability of LAB to digest protein during the fermentation process. The greater its ability to digest protein, the greater the power of the LAB. Enterococcus faecalisTH10 has been found to produce compounds that promote a balanced microbiome and healthy gastrointestinal function.*
2. Bifidobacterium breve ss. breve M-16v – Promotes comfortable digestion and regularity; helps support a healthy immune system*
3. Bifidobacterium infantis ss. infantis M-63 – Promotes digestive comfort in both the stomach and intestinal tract*
4. Bifidobacterium longum BB536 – Supports the body’s ability to process and eliminate nitrates in food*
5. Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14®︎ – Supports a healthy immune system; helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
6. Lactobacillus brevis ss. brevis NBRC 3345 – Produces natural bacteriocins, which support a healthy immune system*
7. Lactobacillus bulgaricus NBRC 13953 – Supports digestive comfort and healthy stomach acid*
8. Lactobacillus casei ss. cassei TO-A – Supports a healthy immune system, promotes healthy cellular growth and normal apoptosis*
9. Lactobacillus fermentum NBRC 3071 – Supports a healthy immune system and promotes nitrogen activation*
10. Lactobacillus helveticus ss. jugurti NBRC 3809 – Supports a healthy immune system and promotes the body’s ability to maintain healthy cellular growth*
11. Lactobacillus plantarum TO-A – Produces natural bacteriocins, which support a healthy immune system*
12. Streptococcus thermopilus NBRC 13957 – Supports production of the antioxidant SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE
Much more than a probiotic.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic is an all-natural, SUPERIOR PROBIOTIC developed to support digestive comfort, nutrient absorption and a healthy immune system. Proven effective through over 20 years of use, currently sold in over 15 countries, and backed by over 20 university-based scientific studies. Unlike most other probiotic products, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are not cultured or grown in a laboratory. Ingredients such super-fruits and vegetables – are fermented for five years with 12 distinctive probiotic strains. The longer 5-year fermentation process results in a highly concentrated formula optimized for individuals with complex digestive and immune health goals.
Provides live and viable bacteria – NEVER freeze-dried, which have been strengthened through a unique five-year Japanese fermentation process which assures enhanced potency – The five-year fermentation process assures that the strongest bacteria survive.
This rich culture medium (PREBIOTICS) from the fermentation process is then encapsulated along with: the Probiotics that have grown together over the five-year period; and the resulting nutrients from this fermentation process (POSTBIOTICS), thus delivering viable probiotics and encouraging your body’s innate ability to grow its own friendly bacteria.
When Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are encapsulated after 5 years of fermentation, you actually get three products. Each capsule contains multiple strains of probiotic bacteria along with the extensive array of prebiotics which support the growth of the probiotic. The capsule also contains a substantial “dose” of all the post-biotic metabolites that the probiotic bacteria have been producing during five years of fermentation (no other product can compare.)
Product needs no refrigeration! – Fermentation at seasonal temperatures results in capsules that have a three-year shelf-life at room temperature.
Well-tolerated by the most sensitive digestive systems – Fermentation alters the culture medium ingredients (nutritious vegetable, fruits, mushrooms, seaweed) into a completely different form. Only plant material used in culture medium; no dairy. *
