Unique Fermentation Process:

OM-X is meticulously processed using natural-temperature fermentation and maturation for a 5 year period.

First 3 years: Quality ingredients are blended and left to naturally ferment.

Next 2 years: Maturation period. Paste is stirred throughout entire 5 years.


Throughout the fermentation period, the microorganisms are nurtured to produce various organic acids and beneficial nutrients which make OM-X the award winning formula that it is. This fermentation process helps to make the friendly
bacteria very strong and stable, ensuring that OM-X remains active without refrigeration.

Why are fermented foods good for our health?

During fermentation the plant ingredients being fermented by the beneficial microorganisms are broken down or pre-digested. This makes the nutrients in these plants more easily digested and absorbed by your body and daily
consumption of the fermented foods also improves the balance of your intestinal flora. Fermented foods like OM-X are also naturally rich in enzymes which further support your digestive system for optimum health.

Benefits of OM-X:

Regular consumption of Dr. Ohhira’s OM-X Probiotics is beneficial for people with digestive challenges like IBS, leaky gut, peptic ulcers, bloating and heartburn (GERD), ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, constipation or diarrhoea, as well as those suffering from yeast infections including Candida albicans. OM-X is also recommended for people on weight management programmes that utilize certain natural products, such as psyllium and other colon
cleansers, which strip the colon of the good bacteria.
