News from Essential Formula’s Science Director

Ross Pelton R.Ph., Ph.D., CCNAbout 15 years ago I was speaking at a health conference in Florida. When I attend health/medical conferences, one of my objectives is to see what I can learn from new companies and new products that are being exhibited. At this particular conference, I stopped by the Essential Formulas® booth, which had a banner announcing Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics®.

The people in the Essential Formulas booth took the time to explain the multi-year fermentation process that is unique to Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics. Although I was familiar with the category in general, I had never come across a probiotic that was produced this way.

Although it all sounded very interesting, I basically said, “I’m a science-based guy. You’ve gotta show me some research that documents your claims.” Well, they loaded me up with a bag full of literature with articles, studies, and a book written by Dr. Ohhira on lactic acid bacteria.

On my transcontinental flight home from Florida to California, I devoured the literature Essential Formulas had given me. I soon realized that Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are not only unique, but also superior to any other probiotic product I had ever evaluated. From that point on, I started taking Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics myself, recommending them to clients, and teaching about them in my seminars for health professionals.

I look forward to sharing my findings and insights with you regarding all of Essential Formulas products as well as posting significant news, clinical studies, and articles regarding probiotic health. We believe knowledge is power and imperative in helping you in the journey towards life-long health!
