A travel must have

Posted   by Victoria from EUGENE, Oregon
If you frequently travel to rural and underdeveloped places, you NEED this probiotic. Growing up traveling between Mexico and the U.S, I thought that I could handle any type of street food. At 17 I fell ill with salmonella on a trip to Mexico and my stomach never quite recovered. Since then, every time I would visit family I would fall ill and require antibiotics, or I would have diarrhea for the entire duration of the trip. That is, until I discovered these probiotics. After nearly 10 years of falling ill during bi-annual trips to Mexico, taking these probiotics is the only thing that has kept my stomach happy and away from a Mexican pharmacy. I have tried other probiotics when feeling ill and none work like Dr. Ohhira's. These are pricey probiotics, so I normally take another probiotic throughout the year as maintenance and reserve the Dr. Ohhira's in the event of an upset stomach or any situation that requires I turbo charge my gut. I had 13 American friends attend an event with me in rural Mexico and told them to take this probiotic before, during and post the event. Not one of them got sick! I'm talking eating pork cooked out in a rural outdoor fire stove and rice doused in lard. At the first sign of an upset stomach, I take 5 of these. Then I lower the dose to 1-2 every few hours until I the pain has subsided. The following day I'll take 1-3 a day for maintenance. This is not medical advice, only what I have found works for me. These probiotics are a miracle and I am no longer made fun of for having a weak stomach.

Dr. Ohhira's is a classic. Requires no refrigeration because of the particular blend--and includes prebiotics. Expensive--but it's a worthy investment in your gut health and immunity.
