Difference verses Original Formula: Identical ingredients to Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics Original Formula but fermented an additional two years from 3 years to 5 years. Tweaked during the fifth year of processing to provide organic acids that are more robust than those contained in the Original Formula. In addition, the potency of the micronutrient by-products is maximized to expedite the adhesion of the good bacteria in the colon. The CFU of the lactic acid bacteria may be less than in the Original Formula due to the natural variation of ingredients and the more complex manufacturing process.
The Professional Formula is recommended for those individuals with a specific health condition. The Original Formula is most often used to maintain overall good health.
Suggested Use: For best results take one (1) capsule twice a day on an empty stomach (1 hour before or 1 1/2 hours after meal) or as directed by your primary health care provider. One box supply will last approximately two months.
