Dr. Ohhira's Fermented Probiotics (formerly called 12 Plus Probiotics) in its original vegetarian formula is a complete probiotic system with live cultures. Honour your gut instinct: improve your internal environment with a system that's much more than a mere probiotic. Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics helps restore the entire complex of friendly bacteria necessary for optimal health.
Friendly bacteria make vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, B12 K, and Biotin right in our intestines. They also help digest our food, detoxify harmful substances, aid hormone balance and, of course, improve digestion and elimination. Unfortunately, normal life with its stress, diets too high in processed foods, antibiotics, hormone replacement, oral contraceptives and even tap water can disrupt the delicate balance of organisms in the intestinal system. Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics 12 PLUS by Botanica is a unique combination that changes the GI environment to support the hundreds of beneficial strains of bacteria that maintain your health.
* LIVE Bacteria -- not freeze-dried
* Includes their richly nutritious and hypoallergenic food supply which serves as the ideal pre-biotic
* Unique naturally-produced organic substances that improve GI pH
* 100% vegetarian, soft capsule that is stable without refrigeration
