About This Brand

Essential Formulas Inc.

Essential Formulas Incorporated was founded when Michael Schoor, now Chairman and CEO, discovered Dr. Ohhira's Probiotic formula while traveling through Malaysia in 1997.

As with all probiotics, you need to take these probably for a few months to notice any changes but I have no complaints

Not my favorite probiotic

This stuff did not sit well with me. I've tried many probiotics and this was my least favorite of them all. Everyone is different though, so just because it didn't work well with me doesn't mean it wont for you!

Quality Probiotic

Posted   by Sylvia
I've tried many different brands of probiotics, but what I love about Dr. Ohhira's is the fermentation process that allows it to have shelf life. Highly recommend.

Good Product

Posted   by Sharon
I really like these capsules as they are easy to swallow and do not have to be refrigerated like most of the other probiotics. I feel they are one of the better products on the market.

the best I've found

Posted   by cheryl
Ohira's have been recommended to me by several health professionals. And used it for years. That's because they have 11+ different strains of probiotics. I haven't found another of the same quality. If you look a the label you will see what I mean.

Thank you

Posted   by Lyndell
Thank you, these probiotics are the best! I recently decided to try a different brand at a lower price, as the price was pinching my senior budget. I was so pleased to get Kelly's email telling me that Thrive now is offering this. Thanks again. And for getting a discount on Bullet Coffee! Thank you Thrive.
