More than 20 years of thorough research, Dr. Ohhira has scientifically concluded that good health prevails when good bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract are properly colonized. Ill health is the result of too great a colony of bad bacteria. Based on Dr. Ohhira’s findings, it would then seem to be a logical conclusion that simply providing large numbers of good bacteria to sick and unhealthy persons should lead to dramatic improvement in their unhealthy condition. Right? Wrong! How are Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics made? Ohhira delved further into the science of good health, he discovered that certain naturally fermented foods consumed in Asia are a rich source of lactic acid bacteria. After years of studying the known strains of lactic acid bacteria occurring in fermented foods indigenous to Southeast Asia, Dr. Ohhira developed an award-winning probiotic formula that re colonizes the micro flora in the digestive tract, enhances the immune system, and promotes good health. Dr. Ohhira also has found that the excessive use of antibiotics has led to the creation of new strains of “super” bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotics. To combat these new harmful invaders, Dr. Ohhira’s team developed a special, transient TH 10 strain of friendly lactic acid bacteria that was successfully isolated from the Malaysian food delicacy–Tempeh. This special TH 10 strain has been found during in vitro studies to be extremely effective against the most potent antibiotic resistant MRSA (methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus) super bug.
