Dr. Ohhira’s Propolis PLUS, the newest product from Dr. Ohhira’s renowned line of award-winning dietary supplement EssentialFormulas products, introduces us to the secret life of bees combined with the ancient wisdom of the ocean and the proven science of probiotic extract all converging to create a truly singular supplement supporting the crucial balance required for complete body health, digestive health and the oxidation/inflammation cascade.*
Dr. Ohhira’s Propolis PLUS from Essential Formulas combines a unique and consistently potent Brazilian green Propolis with Flax Oil Omega-3s, complete pre-biotic and probiotic support, and anti-inflammatory antioxidant Vitamin E and Astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid. It belongs to a larger class of phytochemicals known as terpenes. Astaxanthin is produced by microalgae. Astaxanthin, unlike some carotenoids, does not convert to Vitamin A (retinol) in the human body. Too much Vitamin A is toxic for a human, but astaxanthin is not. However, it is a powerful antioxidant; it is claimed to be 10 times more capable than other carotenoids. There is simply no other single supplement product combination like this on the market today.*
PROBIOTICS PROPOLIS uses fermented vegetable extract in powdered form made by lactic fermentation with vegetables, fruits, seaweeds and mushrooms. Various functional substances cannot operate at their full power under the circumstance where it is difficult for nutrition to be absorbed. Nutritional ingredients in fermented vegetable extract and lactic acid bacteria perform to improve the intestinal bacterial balance that leads to maintaining your health.

Why Brazilian Green Propolis?
Derived from the vegetation surrounding the bees’ hive, the potency and composition of propolis depends highly on its regional source. Known as the Gold Standard of propolis, the best Brazilian propolis is often referred to as “Green Propolis” due to its vivid color. In particular, Brazilian Green Propolis found in the Minas Gerais region is derived mostly from Alecrim (Baccharis dracunculiforia), an herb peculiar to South America. The wild-growing plants are free of pesticide residue and allergy-causing agents.*
Minas Gerais Green Propolis contains remarkably high cinnamic acid derivatives (i.e. Artepillin C) and is, consequently, more potent than any other source. The unique Africanized honey bees of this area have adapted to living in a very difficult environment; the potency of their propolis reflects this fact. Preserving that potency, Dr. Ohhira’s Green Propolis PLUS uses a patented water-soluble extraction method to remove the green propolis from its natural environment.
