A healthy digestive system needs live bacteria called probiotics. Since your microbiome—all the bacteria in your body—is a mix of good and bad bacteria (bad = the kind that make you sick), it’s important to have enough of the good ones so your body functions properly.
In short, a healthy Gut = a healthy Immune System + Good Health
Probiotics may help:
- Treat diarrhea, especially following treatment with certain antibiotics
- Treat irritable bowel syndrome
- Prevent and treat urinary tract infections
- Speed treatment of certain intestinal infections
- Prevent or reduce the severity of colds, flu and allergies
- Weight loss

Who is Dr. Ohhira?
Dr. lichiroh Ohhira is an award-winning microbiologist from Japan. He’s also formulated the special E. faecalis TH 10 strain of lactic acid bacteria, which has been shown scientifically to be 6.25 times stronger than any other bacteria known to bacteriologists.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics HIGHLIGHTS
- Made with 12 strains of lactic acid bacteria fermented for 3 to 5 years to maximize health properties.
- Contain natural prebiotic nutrients, important to intestinal well-being.
- Probiotics are live and viable; never freeze-dried.
- No refrigeration necessary because the long-term fermentation at ambient temperatures stabilize the probiotics.
3 stand-out Dr. Ohhira products:
This formula goes through a three-year fermentation process at a temperature that encourages survivial of the strongest bacteria and makes the blend shelf-stable without refrigeration. The orginial formula is most often used to maintain overall good health.
Each capsule is packed with:
--A proprietary organic acid blend made up of citric acid, lactic acid, formic acid and proprietary lactic acid bacteria blend consisting of 900 million CFU's (colony forming units).
--12 strains of live lactic acid bacteria
--Six Wild Fruits (prebiotics & enzyme activity)
--Two Seaweeds (prebiotics& enzyme activity)
--Two Herbs (prebiotics & enzyme activity)
--A proprietary blend of 82 additional wild organic crops including herbs, fruits, and organic plants (prebiotics& enzyme activity)
This particular probiotic is recommended for individuals with a specific health condition. It has the same formulation as the original formula, but it has been fermented for 5 years (vs. 3 years), which is two years more than the original formula. During that fifth year, the formula is tweaked during processing to provide organic acids that are more robust than those contained in the Dr. Ohhira's probiotic original formula.
Honeybees create propolis as a flavonoid-rich antioxidant and antibacterial substance to coat and seal the interior of their hives. Propolis is derived from plant and tree resins, and protects the hive from invasion by bad bacteria, mold, and other pathogens. Humans can benefit from propolis by consuming it as a dietary supplement.
Brazilian Green Propolis is known as the Gold Standard of propolis. It's especially powerful because of the rare flora in the region where it's harvested and the unique African honeybees that create it. These bees have adapted to living in a very difficult environment, and the quality of their propolis reflects this fact. It is remarkably high in cinnamic acid derivatives (i.e. Artepillin C) and is one of the most potent propolis sources available.
Take care of your gut with diet and a high quality probiotic supplement.
