  • I wasn't sure whether to choose Every Day Extra or Max having tried the basic which helped sooth the system a bit but not as much as I would like. I emailed the advice team and received a thorough and helpful reply in which the pros and cons of each was pointed out. I have gone for Extra which has helped a lot.

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 EXTRA (1) 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. Research (1,2,3) suggests that taking regular probiotic supplements helps to maintain gut health and the microbiome.

“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.
