I'm not sure, but I really seemed to feel worse while on this, so I stopped after the first few days. I have a weak immune system, due to a chronic-fatigue type condition. Then in my research I discovered that people with CFS and other immune issues that make them TH2 dominant (research this if you don't know what I'm talking about) do not do well with a certain probiotic strain- streptococcus thermophilus, which is found in this formula. It further increases TH2 cytokine production, which exacerbates our issues because we need probiotics that increase TH1 production instead. L. Casei, L. Plantarum, and B. Longum are good for TH2 dominant people (like people with HIV or CFS) and these are all found in the jarrow formula, so I've been using that instead.

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 ›

I've been taking Dr. Ohhira's probiotics for almost a year. I never realized the difference these probiotics were doing until I stopped taking them for 4 months. I stopped because of the money & I thought it was my new eating lifestyle that made the bloating/gas stop. I'll never do that again. I have digestive problems, mainly gas. When I take them I don't have nearly the same embarrassing gas & no bloating. What a miracle these probiotics have been in my life.
Worth the money!

After trying many other probiotics, I am pleased with the quality of these and the process Dr. Ohhira uses to produce these. It aids in digestion and keeps things moving well! :)

Also, they are fantastically easy to swallow. My daughter can even swallow these! They are comparable in size and shape to a typical vitamin e capsule. So, if swallowing large pills is an issue for you, this one should be easier for you.

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.

After several months of consistently taking Dr. Ohhira's formula, I am seeing very positive changes. The digestive processes seem to be quite balanced now, with no gas, discomfort,or irregularity, and the skin eruptions, rashes, redness, burning skin, incessant itching - all of which were causing extreme distress and pain - are almost completely healed. I am thrilled! Knowing all the attributes of a quality probiotic (listed on the website) has put my mind at ease regarding the comprehensive benefits afforded by daily use. Many additional supplements can be eliminated because the overall function of the gut/digestive tract is so improved and efficient that the body will boost the immune system and produce various substances such as vitamins, etc., simply because the raw materials and "good bacteria" are present and actively working as nature intended. Don't live without probiotics and the super boost to your health they afford! I am totally satisfied and know that the money was well spent. I will never stop taking them because I am fully convinced that they are one of the most essential products for overall health and well-being.
