Complete Probiotics System with Live Cultures
Original Vegan Formula
Developed by award-winning microbiologist lichiroh 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.
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 that 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.

A note on caramel color:
The carmel coloring is from the fermentation of the beet root (one of the 92 plants) that ferment 3-5 years with 12 strains of LAB. During the fermentation, the beet root breaks down and is a prebiotic for the probiotic and is also for the darker color of the paste.
1st year fermentation the paste is a light brown kind of the color of peanut butter. At year 3 it takes the brown color and by year 5 it is dark brown.
