Probiotics & Prebiotics to help maintain overall digestive health, immunity and energy levels.
For anyone, aged 1 year and over, who is seeking probiotic support on a daily basis.
5 billion live probiotic microorganisms + 88mg of prebiotic fibres.
This daily supplement promotes a healthy balance of friendly bacteria throughout the entire intestinal tract. In For daily wellbeing, the acidophilus and other probiotic bacteria along with the prebiotics have been selected for their specific clinically proven health benefits they convey in the different parts of the small and large intestine or colon. For daily wellbeing contains a variety of well-researched and documented probiotic strains.
With no added sugars, artificial flavourings or colourings, OptiBac Probiotics For daily wellbeing provides a healthy alternative to sugary probiotic yoghurt drinks.
Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 : These are amongst the most well-researched and documented species of probiotics naturally resident in the human gut. Our rhamnosus and acidophilus strains have been studied to survive your gastric acidity and bile salts and to reach the intestines without damage; where they colonise, support immune cells and create a healthy lactic acid environment that limits survival of harmful bacteria.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, Bifidobacterium breve Rosell-70 and Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71 : Colonise primarily in the large intestine (or colon). Here they promote the production of antibodies, support the body against toxins and inhibit the development of undesirable bacteria by competitively excluding their attachment to the intestinal wall lining. A healthy balance of Bifidobacteria furthermore supports the intestines in assisting transit and optimising a healthy frequency and regularity of bowel movements.
Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058 : This probiotic strain is obtained from the kefir culture and is renowned for its antimicrobial benefits; supporting the body against undesirable harmful bacteria and some fungi.
Prebiotics : The non-digestible prebiotic FOS (fructooligosaccharides) acts as a food source to stimulate growth of your body's probiotics, the Bifidobacteria in particular; creating what is known as a 'bifidogenic' effect. The synbiotic relationship between probiotics and prebiotics in the colon has a great impact on supporting intestinal health and wellbeing.
Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175

"I cannot praise this product enough. In 2008/9 I was in a terrible state. I could hardly eat and had barely enough energy to leave the house. It came on out of nowhere and after months of tests still nothing showed up, so my GP suggested I look into probiotics as she felt as though some kind of digestive issue was the cause. Well, after a lot of experimentation with other types/brands (that didn't really seem to help much) my mum found Optibac at a local pharmacy. I gave it a go and WOW! Within 3 days my symptoms had disappeared and I got my life back. It's no exaggeration to say I was staggered and remain so even 6 years later. I would (and do) recommend Optibac to anyone interested. Thank you!"
"I have suffered from severe diverticulitis for a number of years and as symptoms worsened I was almost housebound. I have tried both NHS prescribed medication and over the counter with little success until a pharmacy assistant recommended Optibac to me. Within a week there was a dramatic improvement, not just in my bowel problems but my overall health. I am energised and can now leave the house without fear of acute symptoms catching me unawares. Several months later, I am still taking them and remain well - I even "passed" the Bowel Cancer Screening tests after years of being called up for Colonoctomy and Endoscopy due to blood in stools. I cannot speak highly enough of this product."
"I had my appendix removed when I was 7 years old and have suffered with general ill health since then! ... when I eventually clicked that the only difference between unhealthy me and a healthy someone else is that I HAVE AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY BODY MISSING ...so I thought that I should try and substitute for this missing organ and it's operation.
I had been using optibac for a few months, then stopped - but now I am using it daily again.
After years of feeling ill and depressed, my mood has elevated and I feel like a super human. My mind is no longer dull and I am super sharp - when I put those 2 pills in my mouth in the morning, I believe that they will make me fit, healthy, happy, energetic and strong = and they DO!
"I have been on the every day optibac probiotics for 1 year now 2 capsule in the morning for me they are great I suffer with IBS & indigestion sometimes really badly, put since going on to these probiotics I am much better. I ran out of them for a week and tried [shop brand] probiotics, no comparison. I was in so much discomfort.
Please can someone explain what is the ingredient in the everyday probiotics that makes them so good for me.? Kind regards Lesley Shelton "
Many thanks for your positive review. We've omitted the name as a token of respect for the shop involved, I hope you don't mind. The probiotic strains in For every day are extremely well-researched, and go through a number of in vitro (test tube) tests as well as human clinical trials to test aspects like safety, ability to survive gastric acidity, and ability to adhere to the gut wall lining.
You can find out more about our strains here - http://www.optibacprobiotics.co.uk/about-probiotics/our-probiotic-strains.html I hope that helps.
Really happy you have felt so good with them.
"I have been taking your products for 6 months after a really bad attack of diverticulitis. I have used different brands of probiotics over the years since I was diagnosed and probiotics definitely help. Since taking a daily capsule of For Daily Wellbeing and also a capsule of Saccharomyces boulardii, my condition seems much more stable. Even without a full blown attack, I was often uncomfortable and never quite sure whether a trip out would 'eventful'! It's so nice to feel confidence and not worried all the time about the next attack - 6 months is a long time, for me, to be free of infection in my diverticula pockets. Thank you, Optibac. (Great service to Spain, too!)"
