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. During a stop in Kuala Lumpur, Michael experienced serious digestive discomfort after eating some regional cuisine. He consulted a local doctor who recommended a probiotic product from Japan, known as OM-X (Ohhira's Mountain Extract). These capsules provided quick relief and worked more effectively than any remedy Schoor had taken in the past, and with no negative side effe

I use these are myself and my kids and we love them. I cut the tip of the capsule and squeeze into applesauce for my kids and for myself the capsules are small and easy to take. Great quality!

Fermented pro/pre/postbiotics

I find the blister packs so convenient especially for travel. No refrigeration necessary. I can't say I feel super human but I have noticed I didn't get sick when others around me have. I was introduced to this product by my holistic doctor and she's pretty picky about the supplements she endorses.

Best for travel

Comes in foil sealed individual package. Gel capsules are relatively small and easy to swallow. Works great as any other top notch quality probiotics I’ve had. Wish I’d known about it before so I didn’t have to agonize over taking the whole bottle of probiotics while traveling.

I'm so glad Thrive Market makes this product available in large quantity at the lowest price I've seen anywhere. I've been ordering it here for at least 5 months and it's the best probiotic! I've been taking a probiotic for the last 20 years and always switching and trying new ones, but this one is far beyond a regular probiotic. It will be my go-to choice from now on as long as I can buy it at this price. Thank you Thrive!
