Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s Probiotics Wins Better Nutrition Magazineâ€™s â€˜Best of Supplementsâ€™ Award and Garners Distinction of Being the Only Product Ever honored for Four Consecutive Years
Essential Formulas Incorporated line of probiotics has once again won the â€˜Best of Supplementsâ€™ Award in the Probiotic Category to be presented by Better Nutrition Magazine during the Natural Products Expo East held in Baltimore, Sept. 21-25.
â€œWe are honored but not surprised by the continued accolades that Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s Probiotics garners from the natural product industry, health care practitioners and consumers,â€ said William Schoor, vice president of Essential Formulas. â€œThis is a truly remarkable product backed by years of research and formulated like no other probiotic available in the United States today.â€
The companyâ€™s President and CEO, Michael Schoor, discovered the productâ€™s amazing benefits while suffering from food poisoning in Malaysia and became determined to discover the science behind this small remedy. His search led him to Japan where he met with the products founder, Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., one of Japanâ€™s leading and award-winning microbiologists. Over 20 years of university-based, scientific research studies have proven the product, including its proprietary TH10 lactic acid bacteria (LAB) strain, to be strong, safe and effective.
To select the winning products, Better Nutrition conducted extensive interviews with a panel of experts, including naturopaths, medical doctors, and experts in the supplement industry. These experts also completed a comprehensive supplement survey and provided feedback on various supplements in 31 categories. The Awards will be featured in the November 2011 issue of Better Nutrition.
Nicole Brechka, Editor in Chief of Better Nutrition, commented that Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s Probiotics are the only supplement to win the Probiotic Category four years in a row and that itâ€™s also the only one she is aware of that merges ancient Japanese fermentation techniques with modern technology.
â€œDr. Ohhiraâ€™s innovative formula encourages the growth of a personâ€™s own unique probiotics, and it is this distinction that sets Dr. Ohhiraâ€™s Probiotics apart from all other brands and makes it my number one recommendation,â€ says Suzy Cohen, R.Ph., Pharmacist, syndicated health columnist, and author.
