Unique 5-year Fermented Process
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula uses a unique 5 year, long-term fermentation process to produce a superior biogenically-active probiotic supplement. This rich food matrix is fermented together with 12 strains of Lactic Acid bacteria resulting in a dense concentrate of naturally occurring prebiotics, live probiotics, and postbiotic metabolites which promote a healthy GI tract and improve gut health. Developed by award winning microbiologist Lichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., and esteemed research scientists from Okayama University, this formula combines ancient Japanese fermentation techniques with modern technology.
Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional Formula differs from the Original Formula (3 year formula) by being naturally fermented for an additional 2 years in an anaerobic environment to increase its robust biogenic medium, further supporting gut health and colonic pH.
