    Now dispatching in our new look!

    We are introducing new, eco-conscious packaging this year, and the new designs will update gradually from product to product to minimise any waste. Please bear with us as you may receive orders with both current and new packaging over the coming months. We hope you like the new look!

    We’ve reduced the plastic in this packaging by 96%. We no longer use plastic containers.

    Update May 2021: This supplement was previously called OptiBac ‘For every day MAX’ in the EU and ‘For daily wellbeing MAX’ in the rest of the world. It's exactly the same great formula, which previously advertised 50 billion live cultures per capsule but has now been updated to 75 billion live cultures per capsule (based on latest stability data). Existing customers can continue to take it just as before!

    Billion Count

    Research shows that it is more important to look at the quality of the bacterial strains, before you look at the number of billions. The best friendly bacteria supplements always list the strains of bacteria i.e. Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM® and not just the species (Lactobacillus acidophilus) because no strain is the same.

    Listing a strain shows transparency. It allows the consumer to identify whether there is any research on the strain, what the quality of that research is and what potential benefits the strain may offer. It's best to take the product with the most researched, high quality strains, which are most suited to your needs. Whilst it's not always necessary to take very high doses of friendly bacteria, as in some cases a strain maybe sufficient at doses of just 1 billion live cultures - if you are going to take a high strength live cultures supplement, then we recommend choosing one containing some of the most researched strains in the world.

    Customer Questions

    All questions answered by probiotic experts Dr Kate Stephens PhD (Food and Microbial Sciences) BSc(Hons) Medical Microbiology Kerry Beeson BSc (Nut. Med.) Nutritional Therapist.

    Is it OK to take friendly bacteria every day?

    Yes, it is safe and generally advisable to take your friendly bacteria supplement daily. Good bacteria colonise in the gut for a few weeks but research1,2,3 suggests that the good bacteria strains will disappear without regular supplementation, so for this reason you might wish to take them regularly.

    Should you take friendly bacteria on a full or empty stomach?

    In general, it’s best to take friendly bacteria with the first meal of the day. There are concerns that stomach acid will damage the delicate bacteria, and that taking them on an empty stomach will help. But at breakfast time, stomach acidity is closer to ‘neutral’ than at other times of day (i.e. least acidic), and there is a lag time (up to 30 minutes) between food consumption and stomach acid release. Taking friendly bacteria with food has additional benefits: the food helps to buffer the effects of stomach acid, facilitate the passage of the probiotics through the stomach, and ensures that they are well mixed with the stomach contents as they pass into the small intestines.

    How long should you take live cultures for?

    This depends on why you are taking them: some people like to take specific strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, when travelling abroad, or during the winter flu season. However, as mentioned above, many people prefer to take friendly bacteria on an ongoing basis. There is no current research to suggest the body becomes dependent on good bacteria, so long-term supplementation is fine.

    Safety

    Live cultures 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.

    • I would highly recommend this excellent product. Brilliant, easy and worth every penny.

      Rosie Sprake - 9th March 2021

    • I have been taking this product for 2 weeks. I feel much better. Of course with a proper diet. I would like to ask if it can be taken for a long time. What other products might be useful?

      Aurora - 25th November 2020

    • Reached out to OptiBac for advice on which probiotic to take in order to support and repopulate the gut. Beverley, an OptiBac nutritional advisor, couldn't have been more helpful and sent over an extremely comprehensive, informative and personalised email. I ended up purchasing this 'Everyday Max' product alongside S. boulardii which work in complementary fashion to each other, and both have been brilliant. Could not recommend highly enough. Thank you!
