Not all bacteria are bad for you. On the contrary, some bacteria are required to sustain life itself! These bacteria are called probiotics. Probiotics are friendly bacteria that live in your intestinal tract. They actually make some of our vitamins, balance hormones, detoxify harmful substances, maintain healthy digestive pH, support regularity, and help us digest food. Probiotics crowd out pathogens and help to support the immune response when bad bacteria show up. Without probiotics, we can get quite sick. Modern lifestyles can be very harsh on probiotics though. Stress, processed foods, antibiotics, hormone replacement, and chlorinated water can all harm the intestinal balance. Loss of that balance often results in fatigue and a compromised immune response. Thankfully, probiotic supplementation can help restore that balance by re-introducing beneficial bacteria into the intestinal tract.
A probiotic supplement is helpful only if the beneficial bacteria actually take root in the digestive tract and support the body’s ability to develop its own unique strains of probiotics. Developed by award-winning microbiologist Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics 12 PLUS contains viable bacteria (not freeze-dried or centrifuged) that cohere in the colon.
Dr. Ohhira’s formulation is unlike any other product available today. Probiotics 12 PLUS is fermented using twelve carefully selected strains of lactic acid bacteria, including the proprietary TH10, which is more than six times stronger than other probiotics known to bacteriologists. The bacteria are cultured on nutritious vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, and seaweed; this healthy culture medium is included in the vegetable capsules. This provides “prebiotic” nutrition for the good bacteria, further ensuring their success in your digestive tract. Organic acids from the fermentation process are also included and help to improve digestive pH. Digestive enzymes, bacteriocins, and hydrogen peroxide are developed to enhance and maintain the delicate micro flora garden living in your digestive tract.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics 12 PLUS is non-GMO and hypoallergenic (no dairy, soy, or gluten); contains all-natural ingredients; and is guaranteed free of Soil-based Organisms (SBOs). The 100% vegetarian product is stable without refrigeration.
