You can choose to take specific strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, with and after antibiotics, or during the winter flu season. However, many people feel better when taking daily high-strength live cultures, to complement their natural gut bacteria. Research1,2 suggests that ongoing daily use is fine, with no risk of dependency.

Yes, it is safe, and often advisable, to take a daily high-strength friendly bacteria supplement. Good bacteria only colonise in the gut for a few weeks and research 1,2,3 suggests that taking regular digestive supplements helps to complement the gut microbiome.

“What time should I take friendly bacteria supplements?” and “Should I take live cultures with or without food?” are common questions, especially when taking high strength live cultures. It’s best to take your friendly bacteria at breakfast time, as this is when stomach acidity is at its most neutral. Taking it 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.

With live cultures, ‘more’ is not always ‘better’, though some people do better on high-strength friendly bacteria supplements. But it’s still important to choose high strength supplements with strains featured in multiple gold standard clinical trials, where the research is relevant to your needs. High strength supplements like Optibac Every Day EXTRA 1 contain the same number of billions used in supporting clinical trials - you don't want to pay for more than you need!
