What’s New?Postbiotic Metabolites: The Next Frontier in Microbiome ScienceA pioneer in probiotic health and research, Dr. Ohhira proved what science now confirms, that the most vital and health-promoting aspect of probiotic supplementation is the restorative Postbiotic Metabolites produced in his exclusive natural 3-year fermentation process.

Postbiotics is a term that refers to the vast array of compounds that are produced by the metabolic activity of your probiotic bacteria. These postbiotic compounds play vital roles in the regulation of health and the maintenance of a healthy microbiome.

An Independent laboratory recently analyzed Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics using newly developed scientific technologies capable of identifying the small molecular compounds produced in biological systems. Now scientists can locate these master control compounds called ‘Postbiotic Metabolites.’ The recent data analysis revealed that Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics contain over 400 compounds including lipids, amino acids, peptides, nucleic acids, organic acids, vitamins, and carbohydrates that have a positive impact on health.

These postbiotic metabolites differentiate Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics from all other probiotic supplements, because it is the ONLY 3-Year fermented whole food supplement that delivers probiotic bacteria, prebiotic foods and a multitude of postbiotic metabolites.
