Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® Honored as Ten-time Winner of 2020 Better Nutrition Magazine’s “Best of Supplements” Award

DALLAS – October 28, 2020 Editors at Better Nutrition Magazine recently selected Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics® as a 2020 “Best of Supplements” Award Winner in the Probiotic Category. This win was the 10th for the world-renowned supplement, a distinction no other probiotic supplement has ever received.

In Japanese culture, the number ’10’ is considered ‘virtuous’ because its pronunciation also translates to mean ‘replete’ or ‘overflowing.’ These adjectives aptly describe Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics, an all-natural, wholefood supplement originating from copious amounts of fruits, vegetables, seaweeds, and fresh water.

Dr. Ross Pelton, RPh, CCN, Essential Formulas Science Director, explains why Dr. Ohhira’s is considered the premier probiotic supplement. The key is the 3-year fermentation process at a natural temperature that allows the beneficial bacteria to produce a multitude of “Postbiotic Metabolites.”

“Postbiotic Metabolites are the new frontier in microbiome science,” said Dr. Pelton. “Scientists are learning that postbiotic metabolites are master health-regulating compounds in the body. They play a role in regulating every organ system, including the immune system and the brain.”

To select the winning products, the editors of Better Nutrition Magazine conducted retailer surveys and 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 based on ingredients, reputation, and the science behind the products. The award winners are being featured in the November 2020 issue of Better Nutrition Magazine.

Essential Formulas is also commemorating its 20th Anniversary of offering scientifically proven probiotic products that empower people to lead healthier lives. EFI was established as the sole U.S. distributor of world-renowned microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira’s award-winning probiotic products and in 2015 added the pioneering Reg’Activ® Formulas with ME-3. For two decades, EFI has helped drive the evolution of a burgeoning probiotic health industry by providing probiotic supplements widely recognized for replenishing and bestowing transformative good health.
