Best of Supplements 2014

DALLAS-September 25, 2014Better Nutrition Magazine chose Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® as a 2014 ‘Best of Supplements’ Award Winner in the Probiotic Category for the sixth time. This makes Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics the only probiotic supplement ever to achieve this honor. A representative from Better Nutrition presented the Award during the Natural Products Expo EAST held Sept. 18-20 in Baltimore, MD.

To select the winning products the editors of Better Nutrition Magazine conducted retailer surveys, as well as tallied up readers’ and staffers’ votes. The Better Nutrition Supplement Advisory Board, consisting of naturopathic physicians, health writers and nutrition educators, considered the nominated supplements quality of ingredients, reputation and the science behind the products. The award winners are being featured in the November 2014 issue of Better Nutrition Magazine.

Essential Formula’s Scientific Director, Ross Pelton, R.Ph., CCN recognizes why this pioneering product continues to receive awards and accolades from the natural product industry, healthcare practitioners and consumers alike.

“Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics uses 12 beneficial strains in an exclusive manufacturing process that allows the bacteria to thrive for three to five years in fermentation vats while producing numerous other beneficial byproducts,” said Pelton. “Besides the diverse strains of bacteria, you also benefit from numerous immune-enhancing components that are normally only produced after the probiotics have set up housekeeping in your gut. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are a phenomenal and one-of-a-kind product that promotes good health.”

Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., one of Japan’s leading microbiologists formulated this product and over 30 years of university-based, scientific research studies has proven it to be strong, safe and effective in dealing with digestive distress. Established in 2000, Essential Formulas Incorporated is the sole distributor of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® products in the United States.

Michael Schoor, President and CEO of EFI, says he is gratified by the recognition Dr. Ohhira’s has received over the years from healthcare practitioners, the natural health community and consumers. “Dr. Ohhira’s is an exceptional product and like no other on the market today. It’s always exciting to be honored for quality, efficacy and it’s stellar scientific credentials.”
