The History of Essential Formulas
On a trip to Malaysia in 1997, Michael Schoor ran into some intestinal discomfort and went to see a doctor. That doctor recommended OM-X, a well-known product from Japan - and it provided quick relief with no side effects.
That prompted Schoor to seek out more information about OM-X, and it led him to contact Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira, the microbiologist who developed OM-X (so named because it stands for "Ohhira's Mountain Extract.")
Since 2000, Essential Formulas has been the only North American distributor for Dr. Ohhira's probiotics, slowly expanding its line of all-natural products expanded its product line into areas such as skincare. It is also a member of several organizations devoted to natural health.
