I eat a healthy diet and exercise but have found that in my down-time I was aimlessly surfing social media and watching cat videos. As I was filling my brain with useless information that’s a time-suck,  I realized I was also neglecting my brain.  The brain needs to be exercised like the rest of the body but in a less sweaty manner!

Change Up Your Routine with Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics

Change Up Your Routine with Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics

I am a probiotics fan and use them in my daily regimen with other supplements and a healthy diet. I find that probiotics help keep my digestion on track and feeling better overall. I was excited to try out Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics because they contain a prebiotic from whole food that’s made from fermented vegetables and mushrooms. In addition to the prebiotics, the Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics also contain a POSTbiotic that has pH balancing organic acids along with naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and amino acids to support digestive function.

I expected the probiotics to do their ‘job’ keeping me regular but something happened that was NEW after taking them for about a week. Warning – Warning – Forgive the T.M.I, but I usually go #2 once a day. That’s my schedule and really nothing varies, although travel seems to throw my body out of whack. However, with the Dr. Ohhira’s formula, I found that I was going TWICE a day sometimes.

I didn’t have loose stools or anything like that, I simply was able to go TWICE and felt like my system was turbo-charged! I honestly can’t remember a time in my life when that’s happened, and I was enjoying the extra benefits in which my stomach felt flatter and I definitely had less bloat. I feel like my body is very efficient while taking Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics!

If you feel your system is out of whack, slow or want to get even MORE out of your probiotics function, I highly recommend trying out Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic formula. Probiotics are not only fabulous for digestive health, but for overall well being and even skin benefits from a great functioning system! Again, I noticed better results in a week, so let me know what you think if you try them?

Where to purchase
Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics is available to purchase on amazon.com/essentialformulas


About Dr. Ohhira’s Products:

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are not cultured or grown in a laboratory like most other probiotic products. Natural crops and spring water are fermented* for three years with 12 distinctive probiotic strains that encourage your body’s innate ability to grow its own friendly bacteria. This rich culture medium (PRE-BIOTICS) is then encapsulated along with the beneficial lactic acid bacteria (PRO-BIOTICS) that have grown together over the
three-year period and the resulting nutrients from this fermentation* process (POST-BIOTICS.)
