What is Propolis?

Since prehistoric time bees have been perfecting the creation of a substance known as Propolis to line and protect the interior of their hives.

With its antioxidant properties, the propolis-coating results in a ‘hospital-clean’ environment that ensures survival for the next generation.

Propolis extract has a number of well known therapeutic properties, including potent antioxidant and anti-microbial action, and healing, analgesic, anesthetic, and anti-inflammatory properties.

Dr. Ohhiras’s Propolis formula is unique.

Not only does it use the most potent Brazilian Green Propolis, it also includes whole health support from Astaxanthin, Flax Oil Omega-3s, complete prebiotics and probiotics, as well as anti-inflammatory antioxidant Vitamin E.

What are the other key Ingredients in Ohhira’s Propolis Plus?

Astaxanthin is considered the most complete antioxidant natural substances  known to scientists.
  • Probiotic Support – Powdered form of a fermented vegetable extract for GI tract digestive support
  • Vitamin E – Additional antioxidant support for overall cellular health

Dr Ohhira has Passed On

Dr Ohhira passed away March 1 2016On March 1, Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., developer of Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotic® Formulations (known as OM-X in Japan), passed away after a brief illness. He was 80 years old.

Essential Formulas, Michael Schoor, CEO and president of Essential Formulas Inc writes:

“This is extremely sad news for everyone at Essential Formulas. I had the privilege of working with Dr. Ohhira for many years and considered him not only a brilliant scientist but also a friend. He was a visionary in the field of microbiology and biochemistry and his pioneering research developed the first clinically controlled natural fermentation process, thus setting the gold standard for probiotic supplementation worldwide. Dr. Ohhira was a true humanitarian who made it his life’s work to positively impact the health of millions of people, thus becoming a champion for a generation who were seeking naturally viable health alternatives.”

Michael Schoor goes on to say that in 1974, Dr. Ohhira founded Bio Activity Research & Development Center in Okayama, Japan,that was later known as BioBank. Through his research he discovered Enterococcus faecalis TH-10, a strain whose proteolytic power is 6.25 stronger than other lactic acid bacteria (LAB) known to science.

This is the strain that became the foundation of Dr. Ohhira’s award-winning formulations.

Schoor continues, “This discovery, along with his research in lactic acid bacteria, earned Dr. Ohhira a series of prestigious awards. He received the “Presidential Citation from Philippine Medical Association” and was named a “GUSI Peace Prize” winner, often referred to as the Philippine’s version of the “Nobel Peace Prize.”

Dr. Ohhira once stated, “Each capsule is filled with our passion and hope for bringing health and long life to all 7 billion people on the earth. We make our product with not only proven scientific protocol but tender care through the power of fermentation, inspired through nature’s blessings and the mighty lactic acid bacteria.”

Chief Executive Officer Masumi Ohhira, lead research scientist will continue to lead the company as well as Dr. Ohhira’s protégé, Dr. Muneaki Takahata, Ph.D., and his team of researchers, and also Hiroaki Takahata, who oversees marketing operations in Japan and other regions.

Schoor concludes, “For the time being, we would like to reflect upon Dr. Ohhira’s life and express our gratitude to an exceptional man who gave everything to his company and his passion. According to his utmost wishes, the company will continue to pursue and expand the exciting adventure that he initiated in 1974”.
