Study shows Dr. Ohhira's probiotic safe

High level of safety and tolerability of Dr. Ohhira’s OM-X was confirmed in a recent study published in Integrative Medicine.

Essential Formulas Inc. and BioBank Ltd. (Japan) announced the recent publication of an original research study on the “Safety and Tolerability of Dr. Ohhira’s OM-X Capsules in Healthy Volunteers.”

The high level of safety and tolerability of Dr. Ohhira’s was confirmed in a recent study published in the October 2013 issue of the Integrative Medicine (IMJC), Vol. 12, No 5. 

Authored by Egilius L. H. Spierings, MD, Thomas Walshe, MD, and Fred Pescatore, MD, the randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial was designed to the same standards used in pharmaceutical drug trials. The endpoints were established, adverse events were carefully monitored, and the subjects were carefully chosen to reduce variability. The trial conforms to a Phase I safety trial and the results are similar to those obtained in a previous unpublished trial of the Dr. Ohhira’s OM-X product, which was conducted outside of the United States.


The findings of the study were confirmed over a one-month period with the participation of 51 healthy men and woman who were given one Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic capsule twice a day for 30 days. “The outcome of this study was no surprise as I have been recommending Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics to my patients for years with exceptional clinical results,” said Fred Pescatore, MD, coauthor of the study.


“Nearly 30 years of supporting science has earned Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics the respect of the scientific, academic, medical and holistic health communities,” said Michael Schoor, president and CEO of Essential Formulas Inc. “This study serves as additional substantiation that the high regard and trust in Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics is truly merited.”
