    • For best results take 1 capsule daily, preferably with breakfast.
    • If desired, or professionally directed, can be increased to 2 capsules a day.

    • Store in a cool, dry place below 25°C and out of direct sunlight. For maximum potency, can be refrigerated after opening.

    Safety

    Probiotics are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions e.g. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care. Keep out of reach of children.

    Gut health supplements are not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions. If taking probiotic supplements for gut health, note that these should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. If you are taking any medications or have a serious medical condition, consult a doctor before use. Optibac supplements will not cause dependency and may be used on an ongoing basis.

Choose well-researched, shelf-stable probiotic supplements, guaranteed to reach the gut alive and containing strains researched for your needs. Consider if you want a high strength probiotic supplement, or one with added prebiotic fibre. Read customer reviews to help you decide. For example, Optibac Probiotics Every Day EXTRA is a high-strength probiotic supplement without added FOS fibres, so is particularly suitable for adults with IBS1.

You can choose to take specific probiotic strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, with or after antibiotics, or during the winter flu season. However, many people feel better when taking daily high-strength probiotics to complement their natural gut bacteria, especially if they have ongoing health conditions. Research 1,2 suggests that long-term daily use is fine, with no risk of dependency.

With probiotics, ‘more’ is not always ‘better’, though some people do better on high-strength supplements. But it’s still more important to choose high strength supplements with strains featured in multiple gold standard clinical trials, where the research is relevant to your needs. High quality probiotic supplements like Optibac Probiotics Every Day EXTRA1 contain the same number of billions used in supporting clinical trials.

Yes, it is safe, and often advisable, to take a daily high-strength probiotic supplement. Good bacteria only colonize in the gut for a few weeks and will disappear after a few weeks. Research1,2,3 suggests that taking regular probiotic supplements helps to maintain gut health and the microbiome.

Read references

“What time should I take probiotics?” and “Should I take probiotic with or without food?” are common questions, especially when taking high strength live cultures. It’s best to take your probiotics at breakfast time, as this is when stomach acidity is closest to neutral. Taking them with food further helps to buffer the acid and assist the passage of the live cultures into the gut. If you miss breakfast, just take with another meal or snack.
