“Billions is Better” Found to be a Probiotic
Supplement Myth

Probiotics Alone Fall Short – Enhanced Immune Response also requires
Pre-biotic and Post-biotic Support

With preventive health a priority, natural product consumers are increasingly interested in probiotic supplements. Probiotics are a large part of the immune response puzzle, and they are more than just a boost for digestive health and function. However, the success of supplemented probiotics depends on more than just consuming billions and billions of beneficial bacteria.

Scientists have indeed determined about 70 percent of the body’s immune system cells live in the gut. That means the digestive tract is our first line of immune defense. Probiotics, or friendly bacteria, partially support that response by crowding out bad guys. The ratio of good to harmful bacteria must be at least 85 to 15 to stay healthy. But that ratio is almost impossible to maintain due to typical modern diets, stressful lifestyles, and the overuse of antibiotics. Probiotic supplementation is vital to good health. But finding the right product can be a challenge.

Research has suggested that there are better approaches than introducing billions of supplemented freeze-dried probiotics into the system. Too many probiotic strains can trigger the immune response; the body may consider the supplemented strain a threat. It’s better to have a naturally fermented product with several probiotic strains. Probiotics also need post-biotics, pH-balancing organic acids, and pre-biotics—specific substances that nourish probiotics to thrive. The one product on the market that fits the bill in all regards is Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics.

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics is fermented using 13 strains of lactic acid bacteria (LAB), including the proprietary TH10 strain. Supported by over thirty-five years of university-based research, the probiotic formula is encapsulated with its culture medium. It provides post-biotics, which are pH-balancing vital organic acids, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids, as well as pre-biotic support. Taking one capsule that supplies pro-biotics, pre-biotics, and post-biotics offers assurance that the supplemented-friendly bacteria will take root and supply noticeable immune system support.

Science is proving over and over again that it’s not just germs that make people sick. An unhealthy lifestyle and poor digestive tract balance set the stage for a compromised immune response. A robust probiotic supplement like Dr. Ohhira’s can be a solid step in the right direction.
