Good quality probiotics which have helped my stomach feel more comfortable. Quick dispatch and delivery
Always take the every day probiotics as I feel much better when I do. Just bought my new bottle and happy to find that they are now in a glass container instead of plastic, and I understand that all the Optibac products will be changed in due course.
Before I started taking Optibac 'Every Day', I was frequently bloated and the flatulence - my goodness! Faced with the number of products, I emailed for advice and received the most detailed, well explained reply from the Nutritional team leader, Camilla Gray, which surprised and impressed me. She recommended I start with 'One Week Flat', which I did, and by the end of the week, I noticed a difference, especially in the evening. I've now been taking the 'Every Day' for a month and I can honestly say its made a wonderful difference. Yes, there is still some flatulence, but, as she pointed out, that's normal. The main thing is, I no longer sound as if I'm the entire wind section of an orchestra! I want to say a big 'thank you' to Camilla for her advice and her follow-up email a month later (she asked first if it would be ok to email me again) to see how I was getting on. Such attentive customer service, which, sadly, is a rare thing nowadays.
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, infants with short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care. Keep out of reach of children.
Probiotic supplements are not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions. If taking probiotic supplements for gut health, these should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and 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.

Following the taxonomic updates advised by a global team of scientists and published in April 2020, a reclassification has been proposed for the L. rhamnosus species. The Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain in Every Day may therefore now also be known as Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11.

Yes, it is safe and generally advisable to take a probiotic supplement daily. Good bacteria only colonize in the gut for a few weeks and research(1,2,3) suggests that taking regular digestive supplements helps to complement the microbiome and support gut health*.

Some people like to take specific probiotic strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, or during the winter flu season. However, most people prefer to take a daily probiotic supplement on an ongoing basis to maintain the microbiome and support gut health*. Research to date(3) suggests that long-term use is fine, and the body does not become dependent on the probiotics.

If looking for alternatives to UK probiotic brands like Symprove, you should compare the cost, the recommended daily amount, and the quality of the strains. A high-quality supplement always lists the full strain names of the bacteria, not just the species, so you can check the supporting research. Optibac Probiotics Every Day is a great alternative to Symprove and other similar UK brands; it out-performs most comparable products not only on price, but also on quality of the strains it contains.
The number of strains of friendly bacteria is not the most important factor to consider when choosing a probiotic supplement. It is far more important to select a supplement containing high quality probiotic strains which have been featured in numerous clinical studies. Optibac Probiotics Every Day contains robust strains of the highest quality, including the world-renowned Lactobacillus acidophilus/helveticus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11®, scientifically proven to survive stomach acidity and reach the gut alive(1).
