People who are allergic to soy have immune systems that react to the proteins in soy by releasing antibodies. These antibodies cause the allergic symptoms.
However, during Dr. Ohhira’s three-year fermentation process, the allergy-causing soy proteins are broken down into tiny pieces that are no longer recognized by the immune system as the same protein it would normally react to so there is no allergic reaction.
Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics contains BOTH probiotic and prebiotic support, the probiotics are encapsulated along with their prebiotic culture medium in a specially designed vegetarian capsule. The culture medium begins with pure water and a nutritious blend of fruits, vegetables, seaweed, and mushrooms.
The culture medium does include soy, but soy is just one of the many nutrients found in Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics. Soybeans used in long-term fermentation process are predigested and structurally modified to reduce or eliminate immune reactivity to soy.
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics also provides effective digestive enzymes. A truly living and biogenic product, their fermentation process creates beneficial micronutrients including needed vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. Naturally occurring organic acids also promote a healthy digestive pH and encourage the growth of an individual’s own unique flora.
