Lactic Acid (Probiotics) are beneficial bacteria found naturally in the intestinal tract of healthy people. Probiotics are essential to life. They make some of our vitamins, help digest our food, balance hormones, detoxify and keep the intestinal tract healthy.
Research shows that the friendly bacteria in the digestive tract perform these vital functions:
- Manufacture vitamins such as A, B, B2, B3, B6, K & Biotin
- Aid in digestion of foods we eat
- Detoxify harmful substances
But not all probiotics are the same.
Renowned microbiologist lichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., and distinguished research scientists from Okayama University combined ancient fermentation skills and modern science to create a powerful formula that achieves much more than a mere probiotic. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Professional Formula includes the organic acids produced during fermentation, which improve the digestive pH for the benefit of the hundreds of beneficial strains naturally found in the system.
Why you will benefit from Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Professional Formula?
Unique 5-Year Fermentation Process. Award-winning microbiologist, Iichioh Ohhira, Ph.D, combined ancient Japanese fermentation skills with modern technology to create an exceptional product. A proprietary formula of lactic acid bacteria is encapsulated along with a nutrient-rich, pre-biotic culture medium. After three years of fermentation, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Professional Formula is processed for two more years, strengthening the important naturally-occurring acids, bacteriocins and enzymes.
Normal life with its stress, processed foods and antibiotics disrupt the delicate balance of microflora. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Professional Formula helps to restore the GI environment necessary for optimal health. Each of the 12 strains of beneficial bacteria used in the fermentation of Dr. Ohhira’s product was scientifically selected for a specific purpose. The original culture medium of nutritious mushrooms, vegetables, fruits and seaweed is in the capsule, with the bacteria, providing a unique, natural energy-rich prebiotic environment.

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.
