Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula

30 capsules

Blister-packed to ensure product integrity

Improve 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. OM-X is the tradename of Dr. Ohhirra’s probiotic formula in Japan.*

Question: i have gastritis , esp when i drink coffee, or cococ products and oily food, will taking the probiotics help
  • A: Beneficial bacteria, such as the ones contained in this probiotic supplement may have a detoxifying effect  and help improve the gut environment. Probiotics live in the intestinal tract, and not only help us to properly digest and absorb nutrients that are key to our survival, but also manufacture B vitamins, produce substances that inhibit harmful (or pathogenic) bacteria, and strengthen our immune systems. The best time to take this probiotic is on an empty stomach first thing in the morning about 45 minutes before breakfast and at night about two hours after last meal. This allows the capsule to bypass stomach acid and open in the intestinal track providing maximum benefit. Some signs that the intestinal flors is unhealthy may include but are not limited to,  Allergies and Chronic, Faulty digestion, Frequent constipation and diarrhea, and Peptic Ulcers.
