Rapid Microbiome Restoration involves recreating a healthy GI environment AND populating the environment with the correct inhabitants. This involves addressing and repairing two common causes of microbiome disfunction.
Re-establish a healthy microbiome environment. In dysbiosis, the acid/base balance in the GI tract has become too alkaline. This promotes/supports growth of pathogens and is unfavorable to the growth of probiotics. Introduction of postbiotic™ metabolites called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) helps shift the GI acid/base in a slightly more acidic direction which is optimal for probiotics and unfavorable for the growth of pathogens.
Re-estabiish an optimal microbial balance (roughly 80-90% good bacteria). Two factors promote this rebalancing: a) introducing SCFAs create a favorable environment that supports the growth of probiotic bacteria and, b) introducing probiotic bacteria to help reestablish microbial balance.
Introducing Postbiotic™ Metabolites. In a healthy microbiome, probiotic bacteria are constantly producing compounds we refer to as postbiotic™ metabolites. Dr. Ohhira’s multi-year fermentation process simulates the processes that occur in the human GI tract. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics deliver beneficial bacteria, healthy prebiotic foods and postbiotic metabolites.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics deliver A Complete Microbiome System which helps to accomplish Rapid Microbiome Restoration.
Other causes of GI/microbiome problems are:
Inflammation which can be caused by gluten sensitivity, or any number of other food or environmental allergens.
Microbiome disrupting drugs such as antibiotics, PPIs, NSAIDs, etc.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics addresses points #1 and #2 above. People may have other factors such as those mentioned in a & b above that may also need to be addressed.
