Product quality and reliability supported by a number of studies for about 30 years
Our proprietary probiotic strain, the TH10, was discovered from “Tempeh”, a fermented food in Southeast Asia by a noble effort of Iichiroh Ohhira, Ph.D., one of Japan’s leading microbiologists in 1988. Upon examining the proteolytic properties among 180 or more kinds of lactic acid bacteria, we found out that the TH10 strain has 6.25 times greater proteolytic properties than the others.
Twenty years have passed since the discovery, and more than 20 research papers have been published in academic journals and presented at many conferences. Furthermore, we have actively collaborated with researchers from home and abroad for studies and published a number of clinical test results.
OM-X, a vegetable extract fermented with the TH10 and other probiotic strains, keeps receiving scholarly attention and further benefits are discovered, including an antioxidant property, relief of constipation and improvement in immunity and allergic symptoms. Our stance of placing importance on research activities is valued internationally. Doctors and hospital facilities outside Japan accept and use OM-X.
