Essential Formulas Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original

Shop for Essential Formulas


Since its origin over 30 years ago, Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® has prided itself on purity and the pristine process that creates this perfect whole food supplement. Dr. Ohhira's nourishing prebiotic culture medium is fermented with live cultures comprised of exclusively pure spring water, fruits, wild vegetables, mushrooms, and seaweed.

This carefully balanced and perfectly blended composition goes through a three-year fermentation process based on ancient Japanese traditions. Fermentation maximizes the natural health-supporting properties of each ingredient. The final result is an organic, living fusion that merges and encourages the evolution of your own exclusive internal bacteria. This, in turn, supports a healthy immune system and digestion of crucial micronutrients that your body needs to thrive and flourish.*

The three-year fermentation process at seasonal temperatures encourages survival of the strongest bacteria and makes the blend (12 Probiotic Strains) shelf-stable without refrigeration. Unlike other products that claim billions of freeze-dried non-native bacteria is better, Essential Formulas understands that 'more' is not better. Dr. Ohhira’s formula takes probiotic support to a whole new level by providing the biogenic ingredients Postbiotics needed to support your exclusive probiotic ‘fingerprint’.

Believe it or not, each person has his or her own distinctive blend of specific probiotic strains. Your probiotic fingerprint isn’t like anyone else’s on the planet. Think of Dr. Ohhira’s formula as your own Personal Probiotic!

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® Original Formula is a unique blend of:

• Prebiotics Culture Medium – fermented vegetables and mushrooms that nourish the probiotics*
• Probiotics – friendly bacteria that help you digest food and support immune response*
• PostTbiotics– pH balancing organic acids along with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids to support digestive function and whole health*
