A representative from Better Nutrition presented the award during the Natural Products Expo EAST held Sept. 18-20 in Baltimore, Maryland.
To select the winning products, the magazine’s editors conducted retailer surveys and tallied up reader and staff votes. The Better Nutrition Supplement Advisory Board, consisting of naturopathic physicians, health writers, and nutrition educators, considered the nominated supplements quality of ingredients, reputation, and the science behind the products. The award winners will be featured in the November 2014 issue of Better Nutrition Magazine.
“Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics uses 12 beneficial strains in an exclusive manufacturing process that allows the bacteria to thrive for three to five years in fermentation vats while producing numerous other beneficial byproducts,” said Ross Pelton, RPh, CCN, Essential Formula Inc.’s scientific director. “Besides the diverse strains of bacteria, you also benefit from numerous immune-enhancing components that are normally only produced after the probiotics have set up housekeeping in your gut. Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are a phenomenal and one-of-a-kind product that promotes good health.”
Iichiroh Ohhira, PhD, formulated this product and has conducted more than 30 years of university-based, scientific research studies, which have shown that the products are safe and effective in dealing with digestive distress.
