Essential Formulas Incorporated announced the recent publication of an original research study on the “Safety and Tolerability of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic/OM-X Capsules in Healthy Volunteers”.

The high level of safety and tolerability of Dr. Ohhira’s was confirmed in a MedVadis Research Corporation study. The study was published in the October 2013 issue of the Integrative Medicine (IMJC), Vol. 12, No 5.

Researched and authored by *Egilius L. H. Spierings, MD, *Thomas Walshe, MD, and *Fred Pescatore, MD, the randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial was designed to the same standards used in pharmaceutical drug trials. The endpoints were established, adverse events were carefully monitored, and the subjects were carefully chosen to reduce variability. The trial conforms to a phase I safety trial and the results are similar to those obtained in a previous unpublished trial of the Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic/OM-X product.i

The findings of the study were confirmed over a one-month period with the participation of fifty-one healthy men and woman who were given one (1) Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic capsule twice a day (2x) for 30 days. “The scientific outcome of this study was no surprise to me, as I have been recommending Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics to my patients for years with exceptional clinical results,” said Fred Pescatore, MD, co-author of the study.

“Over twenty-five years of supporting science has earned Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics the respect of the scientific, academic, medical and holistic health communities,” said Michael Schoor, President and CEO of Essential Formulas Incorporated. “This study serves as an added component in validating the trust in this exceptional supplement.”
