What is the Difference Between the Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Professional and Original Formulas
The Professional Formula contains more robust organic acids, which modify the pH of the colon allowing for greater cohesion and proliferation of the LAB strains.
People with severely compromised immune systems or GI tract health conditions receive benefit from this due to their dysbiosis. Dysbiosis is the imbalance of micro-flora and colonic pH, which is caused by too few colonies of friendly flora and organic acids.
The Professional Formula has been fermented for 5 years whereas the Original Formula has been fermented for 3 years. The longer the fermentation, the more potent the formula is. In the Professional Formula, on colonization, the LAB strains will double themselves every 30 minutes for the first 8 hours.
There are identical ingredients to Dr. Ohhira's Probiotics Original Formula and Professional Formula but tweaked during the fifth year of processing to provide organic acids that are more robust than those contained in the Original Formula.
In addition, the potency of the micronutrient by-products is maximized to expedite the adhesion of the good bacteria in the colon.
The Professional Formula is only distributed by health care professionals. The Original Formula is useful for maintenance dosage.
