Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics is a breakthrough dietary supplement for the recolonization of the intestinal tract, named for Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, a renowned microbiologist from Japan. The Professional Formula is an extra-strength product available only through health care professionals. Unlike the Original Formula sold by many distributors, the Professional Formula is tweaked during its fifth year of culture to provide more robust organic acids. The potency of the micronutrient byproducts is maximized to expedite the adhesion of the good bacteria in the colon. Upon colonization, the lactic acid bacteria doubles every 30 minutes for the first 8 hours.
Possibly the world's finest probiotic product, this award-winning formula was recognized as the best product of the year by the Japanese Food and Dairy Association. Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D. was named as "Best Scientist of the Year" for developing it along with a team of research scientists from Okayama University in Japan.
Dr. Ohhira's 12-Plus Probiotic Formula contains a blend of 12 strains of live lactic acid bacteria, 4 varieties of organic acids, 10 vitamins, 8 minerals, 18 amino acids, naturally developed fructooligosaccharides (FOS), and natural antibiotics. It is a non-dairy, totally vegetarian product.
Ninety-two kinds of organic crops -- including plants, vegetables, fruits, leaves, and seaweeds -- are combined in pure mountain spring water during a three- to five-year natural-temperature fermentation process.

Dr. Ohhira's Probiotic Formula is effective because it normalizes the micro flora (lactic acid bacteria) in the intestinal tract, reestablishes the colon's optimum pH level, and suppresses the growth of bad bacteria while stimulating the immune system. It fortifies the body's ability to absorb nutrients, while providing complex B vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids.
Each capsule contains superior natural ingredients without any artificial additives, chemicals, preservatives, coloring, flavoring or animal by-products. Chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides are never used. The contents of each capsule are safe for use by adults, children, and infants. Refrigeration is not required to maintain the product's integrity.
Includes 12 strains of live lactic acid bacteria:
- Bifidobacterium breve ss. breve
- Bifidobacterium infantis ss. infantis
- Bifidobacterium longum
- Enterococcus faecalis TH10
- Lactobacillus brevis
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus bulgaricus
- Lactobacillus casei ss. casei
- Lactobacillus fermentum
- Lactobacillus helveticus ss. jagurti
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Streptcoccus thermophilus
The most important strain of lactic acid bacteria in the product may be the proprietary TH10 strain developed by Dr. Ohhira from the Malaysian food delicacy, Tempeh. TH10 has been proven effective against the most virulent pathogens, including the MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) superbug, E. coli-157, and H. pylori (the cause of peptic ulcers). Each capsule contains several billion live lactic acid bacteria that are 6.25 times stronger than any other intestinal bacteria known to microbiologists.
This transient, combative TH10 bacteria kills and eliminates harmful bacteria found in the colon. It also aids in the removal of toxins produced in the colon by the bad bacteria. After consumption, the TH10 bacteria reside in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract for an extended period of time, where they flourish and coexist with the "colonizer" bacteria, like the lactobacillus and bifidobacterium strains that inhabit the intestinal walls. The colonizer bacteria aid in the digestion and the absorption of nutrients, and along with TH10, form a barrier against the invasion of bad bacteria.
