  • These taste absolutely incredible, almost as good as Percy Pigs minus all the sugar! As a vegetarian it’s rare to find gummies that are gelatin free and have no added sugars. The fact they are so yum and easy to take means I take one every day, before I struggled with capsules and pills always forgetting to take them daily. Since taking them I have more energy and feel healthier. High fives to everyone at Optibac for creating a mega tasty vegan probiotic!

  • Really fruity taste and apart from the friendly bacteria they contain vit D and zinc so saves me buying any extra tablets. Started taking half a gummie to ease my way on to them. Really really pleased.

    Wendy- 23rd May 2022

  • Fantastic gummies, very tasty and easy to take. Ideal for me, as I am having problem with swallowing bigger pills. I trust that ingredients are top quality and easily absorbed by our body. I wish all my vitamins are gummies, thank you Nadia for recommending it to me. I understand that the company is ecologically orientationed, it is always a plus.

If you choose a highly researched gummy supplement like Optibac Adult Gummies, you can take it whenever it suits you. These friendly bacteria and vitamin gummies don’t require refrigeration and can be taken with or without food.

It’s not possible to overdose on live cultures supplements (your gut naturally contains trillions of friendly bacteria!) but if taking multivitamin gummies like Optibac Adult Gummies with added Vitamin D, Calcium, and Zinc, it’s best to stick to the recommended intake of one gummy daily, especially if you take several different vitamin and mineral supplements each day.

Friendly bacteria supplements in capsules or powders typically contain Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria, whereas gut gummies use heat-resistant friendly bacteria like Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2 (1,2). Because they taste like yummy ‘sweets’, people often wonder if gummies are as good as capsules or powders, but if you buy from a trusted company, you can be sure the ingredients and friendly bacteria strains are of the highest quality.
