Serving Size: One Capsule (Net Wt. 0.433g)
Each capsule has a Proprietary Organic Acid Blend (1.27mg) made up of citric acid, lactic acid, formic acid and Proprietary Lactic Acid Bacteria Blend consisting of 900 million CFU's. Note: When it comes to CFU's (colony forming units) in probiotics, more is Not necessarily better. In addition to quantity, we need quality and synergy. Probiotics+Prebiotics = Synbiotics. What is important is how strong and beneficial are the strains. They need to incorporate many complementary strains versus just one or two isolated strains. In addition, they need to provide enzyme activity to aid digestion, reduce inflammation, alleviate toxins and help normalize pH balance in the colon. Dr.Ohhira's probiotics incorporates all of the above and is the reason that these probiotics has won best supplement of the year 5 times in a row from Better Nutrition Magazine.

The 12 Probiotic Strains used in Dr. Ohhira’s Formula
1. Enterococcus faecalis TH-10 – Dr. Ohhira’s proprietary strain is 6.25 times stronger than any other Lactic Acid Bacteria (LAB) known to bacteriologists. The proteolytic power of the TH-10 strain is what distinguishes it from other LAB. Proteolytic power is the ability of LAB to digest protein during the fermentation process. The greater its ability to digest protein, the greater the power of the LAB. Enterococcus faecalis TH10 has been found to produce compounds that help in multiple ways to promote a balanced microbiome and healthy gastrointestinal function.*
2. Bifidobacterium breve ss. breve – Promotes comfortable digestion and regularity; helps support a healthy immune system*
3. Bifidobacterium infantis ss. infantis – Promotes digestive comfort in both the stomach and intestinal tract*
4. Bifidobacterium longum – Supports the body’s ability to process and eliminate nitrates in food*
5. Lactobacillus acidophilus – Supports a healthy immune system; helps maintain healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range*
6. Lactobacillus brevis – Produces natural bacteriocins, which support a healthy immune system*
7. Lactobacillus bulgaricus – Supports digestive comfort and healthy stomach acid*
8. Lactobacillus fermentum – Supports a healthy immune system and promotes nitrogen activation*
9. Lactobacillus casei ss. casei – Supports a healthy immune system, promotes healthy cellular growth and normal apoptosis*
10. Lactobacillus helveticus ss. jagurti – Supports a healthy immune system and promotes the body’s ability to maintain healthy cellular growth*
11. Lactobacillus plantarum – Produces natural bacteriocins, which support a healthy immune system*
12. Streptococcus thermophilus – Supports production of the antioxidant SUPEROXIDE DISMUTASE*
