“Probiotic research is fast transforming our understanding of human health as science is discovering exclusive strains can produce highly specific health benefits,” said Dr. Pelton. “This is truly an exciting time in probiotic science and ongoing discoveries of other health-promoting strains will change the entire landscape of functional health.”
One of these strains is Lactobacillus fermentum ME-3, discovered in 1995 by award-winning microbiologist Marika Mikelsaar, MD, PhD and her team of research scientists when they isolated this extraordinary probiotic strain discovered to produce glutathione. Considered by science as the “Master Antioxidant,” glutathione is made and used by every cell in the body.
We know that optimal glutathione levels are critical for good health, but it has been notoriously difficult to supplement because taken orally it is broken down during digestion. Also, in all animals and humans, glutathione levels decline with age. That’s where ME-3 comes in,” said Dr. Pelton. “Essential Formulas’ Reg’Activ® products which contain ME-3, are the only supplements that consistently and effectively boost glutathione levels in the body, thus leading the way to a paradigm-changing revolution in health and medicine.”
Essential Formulas Incorporated (EFI) was established in 2000 as the sole U.S. distributor of world-renowned microbiologist Dr. Iichiroh Ohhira’s award-winning probiotic dietary supplements and skin care products. Always an innovator, EFI introduced REG’ACTIV® in 2015, containing ME-3, a probiotic catalyst that produces the “Master’” Oxidant Glutathione. A family-owned and operated business, EFI was founded on the philosophy of providing high-quality preventative, supportive and comprehensive pro-health products for the entire family.
