Full Spectrum probiotic-easy to store sofgels Dec 15, 2007
By Susan Rosecrans
This probiotic goes beyond the common lactobacillus acidophilus-12 strains of probiotics. It actually restores the normal flora due to the type, amount and the base its in. Most are grown in cheap media--and processed quickly to market; these are from organic vegetables fermented for 5 years, so are more absorbable. AFter being on antibiotics long term, they quickly restored my normal digestion, got rid of bloating, IBS, and gastric reflux suffered.
Its expensive-but worth it!

Probiotic Review Jun 29, 2009
By J. Gallagher
I have taken these for the last month and I have seen good results. There has been a decrease in bloating and gas, my skin looks better and even my dreaded "backne" is beginning to subside. My scalp no longer itches and my yeast infections have decreased as well. I am very happy with this and will continue to take it, gladly. Excellent product, I am looking forward to seeing what other conditions it helps!

Healling from over prescribed antibiotics Mar 21, 2008
By S. Reid
My family has been using Dr. Ohhira's Probiotic for 2 years now with great results. Our 16 year old son had antibiotic induced diarrhea from taking numerous rounds of antibiotics for reoccuring upper respiratory infections. This eliminated the diarrhea completely and helped to repair the damage that was done. If you have digestive problems due to the overuse of antibiotics or have been diagnosed with candida this product is wonderful and is the only probiotic we have used that had an immediate effect. It is designed to survive the stomach acid and reach the lower colon. Hope this helps.

Best Probiotics Jul 14, 2009
By J. Patel
I have had diarrhea for 1yr...i tried every popular and expensive probiotics out there without any relief. for last 5months I was on PeptoBismol as that was the only thing working to stop bloating, gas, diarrhea, etc. I tried this probiotics and it worked magically. within few days I stopped taking PeptoBismol. I started with taking 2 tablets, morning and evening and now I only take one tablet every morning. Soon, I will try stopping that as well. Really great probiotics and great results.

"CURE" for fibromyalgia/lyme/yeast/ibs/thyroid/perimenopause/etc... Mar 21, 2012
I am writing this review after 4 months on a new regime in which Dr. Ohhira is a key factor. I have been diagnosed with "fibromyalgia/lyme/yeast/ibs/thyroid/perimenopause", etc... I am 46 and have spent the last 5 years visiting over a dozen doctors, having unending tests and paying thousands of dollars out of pocket. I have seen traditional doctors and naturopathic doctors, and have tried everything from acupuncture to ingesting magma, cortisone shots to adderall. In the end nothing helped my never ending joint pain in my hips and shoulders, my intestinal problems, extensive swelling all over and breast pain, and foggy brain and vision.
FINALLY however, I seem to have stumbled on the combination that has slowly and surely been balancing my body and turning back the clocks. Instead of feeling 60+ as I have for the last few years, I have started feeling like my "old self". I have had far more energy and have been able to start running, my pain in my shoulders and hips is essentially gone, my GI issues seem resolved (I have been able to occasionally been able to eat wheat, sugar and dairy which I haven't been able to eat for years), and I have actually been able to back up 4 levels on my reading glasses!
The solution seems to be threefold, and makes sense overall, as all the systems involved in the problems are involved in the solutions. In November I started on a low-dose "pill" (mircette generic) in order to alleviate ovarian cysts, which made me feel somewhat better but most of my symptoms still remained. A few weeks later I started up a combo of Wobenzym Wobenzym N 800 Tabletsand Dr. Ohhira's probiotics Essential Formulas Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics, Original Formula, which seemed to me like they may address my remaining symptoms.
I have continued to use this trio, and have been BLOWN AWAY by the results!!! I definitely move backwards if I stop any of them, but bit by bit I have been able to get totally off of most of my other supplements including adrenal and thyroid. I am sleeping better and have far more energy. The strangest thing is that my body seems to be looking more like it used to, like going back in time.
I have had some complications with taking both the Wobenzym and the Dr. Ohhira as they both need to be taken alone, away from any food. And they both certainly have the ability to cancel each other out as well. So I have moved toward taking 4 Wobenzyms on waking with the pill as they seem to be somewhat energizing. Then I take 4 again a few hours later and then again maybe early afternoon. I can't seem to take them later in the day as they make me feel a little hyped and I can't sleep. Then I take 2 or 3 Dr. Ohhira at bedtime, far after dinner, giving them overnight to work. I know they say to use it twice a day but can't fit that in.
The threefold "cure" seems to be resolving problems in my gut (always primary, but no other probiotic has ever really helped!), yeast issues, joint issues, overall inflammation, as well as hormones and brain functions. My whole body finally feels like its getting balanced and my future feels a lot brighter.
The Wobenzym and Dr. Ohhira are not cheap, and in the long run I will definitely take a punch in the wallet but the solution is far better than spending the money on countless supplements, tests and doctors that didn't make a dent in the problem.
Good luck if you are going through any of this same hell. Hope your solution is right around the corner as well!
