I started taking these probiotics after doing a ton of research to conclude these are the best. I agree these are amazing probiotics but unfortunately, not from Amazon. The first few boxes I had were great and then when I got my new order I started getting really sick from them. I had terrible gas, bloating and diarrhea. It took me a while to narrow it down to this but when I stopped taking them, my symptoms went away. So I returned them and ordered a new box but unfortunately, the same thing happened. I went directly to Dr. Ohira's site and saw that they specifically state that probiotics ordered from Amazon are not guaranteed for quality or freshness. I ended up buying them locally and had no issues and ordered my next few boxes from the Dr.Ohira site. I love Amazon for so many things but not this. Bottom Line: Do not buy from Amazon.

I had known about Dr. Ohhira's probiotics for a while before I actually purchased it - it is quite expensive and I wanted to be sure I wasn't wasting my money. I developed IBS last year because of multiple stressors that come from working full-time and managing all the parenting demands at home. My doctor recommended several prescriptions medications to help "manage" symptoms, but I decided not to subject my already irritated digestive system with harsh drugs that could potentially create a host of new health problems. After considerable research, I made the decision to try this product. I initially bought it from a local health food store and once I was convinced, I decided to start ordering it from Amazon.com.Read more ›

PLEASE READ BEFORE PURCHASING THIS ITEM!!!!!!!! I absolutely love this product and have been using it for many years and it has changed my life. I noticed that there were some comments on if Amazon sells expired products through some of these sellers and more recently I have been ordering them through Amazon instead of IHerb.com because it is cheaper and free shipping. I contact Essential Formulas today and spoke with one of their representatives and they said that there are some sellers of this product that are not authorized to sell the product so they cannot guarantee freshness. But there are also quite a few that Essential Formulas directly sells to that AMAZON DOES SELL and you can trust them... to name a few... Get them from these sellers: My Natural Market, Vista Collection, Harvest Moon, Spiritual Nutrients, Vitamins-best.com. These are a few companies that Essentials will absolutely guarantee freshness and quality!! I hope this helps.. If there is a company selling their item and it is not listed above, they said to feel free to contact them directly to confirm them as responsible sellers.

I purchased this probiotic here several times and have also ordered them on a very reputable herbal supplement website (iherbdotcom). When ever I order them from Amazon, the probiotic package is slightly opened and the insert inside the box with instructions is missing. Not so with the other website. Also, the expiration date on the clear plastic label is crooked and not typed the same way as it is on the other packages that I buy for almost $50 or so. For example; the expiration date on the more expensive box say 06/2013.... On these cheaper versions it says Jun/2013.

I don't know if it means anything, but wondering if these are really expired tablets that are re-stamped with a new expiration date...Just not sure.

This is the ONLY probiotic that worked for me. I suddenly started getting acne in my 30's after four years and trying 5-6 different probiotics ranging from 15-86 billion cultures. I finally tried this one which only has 900 million,clearly the high numbers didnt matter for me. After about a week or two the acne COMPLETELY CLEARED I WAS AMAZED! I only took this product to clear ACNE and IT WORKED I would definitely recommend this to ANYONE struggling with acne believe me I've tried Pro Active,oxy 10,clean and clear,etc. none have worked u need to work on the problem from the inside.

I began taking Ohhira probiotics after a stool test revealed that I had no beneficial bacteria at all. I began taking 3 capsules twice daily on an empty stomach and eventually worked down to 1 capsule twice daily as per the instructions. After taking the product faithfully for six months, I had another stool test. Much to my dismay, there is ZERO growth of the bacteria listed on the Ohhira label. There are e.coli and clostridium and some bacteriodes fragilis, but ZERO lactobaccilus and bifiobacterium. I have spent hundreds of dollars on this product to no avail. I am very disappointed and am wondering if I can get my money refunded. I purchased some Renew Life Ultimate Flora 50 billion last week along with a quart of un-homogenized milk, came home and made yogurt with both the Renew Life and the Ohhira: heated and cooled the milk to 110F; sterilized two containers; added the probiotics; put them in a warm place and went to sleep. The next morning, the Renew Life product had made some beautiful (and delicious) yogurt. Ohirra had done nothing. Three days later the Ohirra had made a slimy yogurt. I do not recommend this product. I'll have another stool test after six months of using Renew Life and will then post a follow-up review.
