It Takes Guts...

Developed by award-winning microbiologist Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D. and distinguished research scientists from Okayama University, Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics combines ancient Japanese fermentation artistry with modern technology. The Original Formula is fermented for three years using 12 strains of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) including TH10, Dr. Ohhira's proprietary LAB strain. The probiotics are encapsulated with their culture medium of nutritious fermented vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, and seaweed. This blend supplies a complete probiotic system including prebiotics, enzymes, micro-nutrients, and organic acids for a healthy digestive pH. Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics supports the individual's own unique flora, and promotes healthy nutrient absorption, metabolism, and immune response.

Suggested Use

For best results take one (1) capsule twice a day on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 1 1/2 hours after meal) or as directed by your primary health care provider.

Temporary reactions such as minor bloating or a mild laxative or constipating effect are signs the beneficial bacteria are remodeling, detoxifying, and improving the gut environment. If such transition effects last more than 10 days, consult your health care provider.

Refrigeration not required.

iHerb Customer Reviews

Comparison of Professional formula with Original formula, plus review.

Posted by 5251372304044810160 on Dec 15, 2016

The capsules in the professional formula are much smaller than in the original formula, making them a lot easier to swallow. I started taking the original formula to help with gut health and after two months I didn't reorder. That month my moods were all over the place. I reordered the probiotics and as soon as I started taking them again I felt so much happier. The next time I reordered iherb was out of stock of the original formula so I tried the professional formula and now I like this one better because of the small size of the capsules. There are lots of other benefits to taking these, but I especially love how they make me feel happy.

BEWARE streptococcus thermophilus - Editing review - Oct 2016

Posted by bhaktaboy on Oct 02, 2016

This product ending up causing an overgrowth of streptococcus thermophilus. My integrative doctor advised to stop taking and not take any probiotics with strep strains for this reason. A common problem. This product is also FAR TOO LOW in CFUs. There are far better products out there in the billions. Will be avoiding this from now on.

되게 유명한 유산균 제품이라 해서 구매했는데 효과 탁월한지 모르겠음

Posted by 5292564665707811822 on Sep 15, 2016

이 제품도 엄청 비싼데 비싼만큼의 값을 못하는듯 한 통 꾸준히 다 먹었지만 장이 편안해졌는지 별로 체감하지 못했어요

I'm sorry that I can't rate this product as I never received it and apparently it got lost in the mail to my frustration.
