            This product works. It keeps me from bloating which is my favorite feature! Otherwise I am always bloated. Other probiotics show no visible effect. I also never get sick. I suggested it to a friend who had been sick for months and she said she hasnt gotten sick since she started it.

                I love the convenience of these probiotics and being able to take them on trips.

                The quality is amazing how the doctor created his method of the probiotics being compatible to each other.
                I trust this product and have been using them for years now.

                    I have suffered with digestive problems my entire adult life, and can honestly say that this Probiotic has been a lifesaver. My doctor recommended I start taking Probiotics, but as a person who is allergic to both milk and soy, I searched a long time before I found a Probiotic I could take. I can honestly say this product has changed my life. It is easy to take, and does not cause bloating, and I have never felt better in my life!

                        I had tried several diferent Probiotcs on the market. By far these have worked the best. I suffered from acid reflux and digestive issues that had disrupted my way of life for a number of years. I heard of ths produc by chance and went out and purchased it. I have been using it now for about 3 years and I feel so much better. I no longer have a burning sensation in my stomach. The thing I liked the most about this product is that it needs no refridgeration. So I can put in my purse or bag and take it when I need it. Yes it is a bit expensive but its worth it sine have felt so much better. I highly recommend Dr.Ohhira'S Probiotics 12 Plusto anyon who has had digestive issues like myself.

                        Why is Carrageenan in this product

                        By A Vitamin Shoppe Customer

                        from Undisclosed

                        Comments about Essential Formulas Incorporated Dr. Ohhira'S Probiotics Original Formula - 60 Capsules:

                        I was excited about starting this product because I had read so many glowing reviews about it. However, when I reviewed the ingredients on the box, I learned that it includes carrageenan, which is a gelatin-like substance derived from seaweed. Many studies have linked this substance to gastrointestinal ulcers and cancer in rats and monkeys. A simple Google search will send you to these studies. Why then would this be in a product touted to improve gastrointestinal health?

                        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-01-09
                        This is helpful info., but needs to be more specific before deciding. From Web MD Carrageenan is SAFE for most people in food amounts. There is a chemically altered form of carrageenan that is available in France to treat peptic ulcers.

                        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-01-09
                        Very helpful review. I researched this further and it does appear that carrageenan is carcinogenic. It is VERY hard to find any pure clean probiotics in a pill form, magnesium stearate and lecithin that could be GMO is ubiquitous. Thanks again!

                        >> A Vitamin Shoppe Customer commented on this review on 2011-01-09
                        Perhaps the ingredients were updates and the carrageenan was removed? I no longer see it on the ingredient list. Guess I will contact the manufacturer directly.

                            I had been suffering from Heart Burn on a regular basis, so I started taking this probiotic daily and a digestive enzyme with each meal- and I have not had a instance of heartburn since about a week after I started taking. I find this probiotic to be very easy to swallow, as the gel capsule is very small.

                            I have used it before and it is a highly effective probiotic blend. Using it to help maintain beneficial flora during anti-biotic treatment/detox.
