  • Very effective product!

    I never doubted the effect of this product as I have used Optibac everyday extra strength probiotics in the past and they worked great, helping to relieve my IBS symptoms. I decided to buy two packs of one week flat and I was not disappointed. I will be buying the four-week supply next! Thank you!

  • Excellent product & customer care

    I have been an Optibac customer for about a year and taken the Every Day Product and the one recommended for travelling abroad during that time. I have been delighted with the improvement in my IB symptoms since taking these products. After exchanging emails with the company recently (and getting a very prompt and helpful reply) I am now taking the Extra Strength product and have seen the unpleasant symptoms of diverticulitis and IB virtually disappear. I can go out for the day without fear of having a thousand toilet emergencies. I highly recommend the company and its products.

  • Great Service

    I had so many questions and the person who emailed me back, Kerry Beeson, answered all of them and gave me lots of information. It is so rare to find a company that doesn't hide behind a faceless website. Another company that I bought a probiotic fro … Read More

  • Excellent

    I have been diagnosed with 'Histamine Intolerance' also Achalasia and slow muscle process through the Gastric tract including the upper GI and irritable bowel syndrome. The contents of eaten food lay fermenting, not processed by my digestive system through the gut. It caused swelling in the oesophagus chronic heartburn with the heart fibrillating virtually every time I ate, creating toxicity throughout the body. The Histamine Intolerance is thought to be caused through the failure of enzymes located in the gut and liver to process this histamine. I contacted The Probiotic website and the information sent was invaluable. I take 'For Every Day' and 'For Daily Immunity'. I remove the capsules, which I can't process, and take the powder from each one with a spoonful of fresh sieved berries, or when not available frozen. I started taking them January 22nd 2015. They have made a vast improvement to my digestive tract. The heartburn, dull throbbing pain in the heart and heart fibrillation has virtually disappeared The irritable bowel is completely under control, empties perfectly every morning. My food is being processed through the gut much quicker, I MAKE SURE I DON'T CONSUME FIBRE, al dente food, bran, whole grains etc are definitely a NO NO. They are all INSOLUBLE and cause havoc in the digestive tract.

  • Success and Relief and Last!

    I was suffering from recurrent or chronic vaginal thrush for over a year. I had completed several courses of clotrimazole and had even used regular probiotics without success. I came across this particular probiotic online in a desperate attempt to seek out a solution that would work. After a few days of using Optibac Probiotics for Women, I experienced complete relief of my symptoms, and haven't experienced this kind of freedom in several months! Thank you for a wonderful product. I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

  • I unfortunately have a problem using the everyday optibac. After several days of use I suddenly developed more frequent bowel movements. I stopped taking them for several days and then restarted. I think it could be the prebiotic, have had to discontinue use. Very disappointed.

  • Response from OptiBac Probiotics

    Dear Anne, I'm so sorry you experienced these symptoms. It's not something we hear often at all, so I wonder if I could ask some further questions? Did you start taking 'For every day' for any particular reason? When you say the bowel movements were more frequent - I wonder how frequent this was, and if the consistency was also altered? Occasionally we do have some customers who are sensitive to prebiotics, but they usually find after 3-4 days that their body becomes used to it and things settle down. We recommend 'For every day EXTRA Strength' as an alternative, as it doesn't contain prebiotics. If you'd like to chat about this further please email through your phone number to [email protected] and I'll give you a ring. - Megan, Naturopath & Herbalist

  • As a nutritionist I have been prescribing Optibac Bowel calm to a number of my IBS patients lately and it has proven very successful as a treatment for chronic diarrhoea so I'm delighted with this product and very interested in testing out other products in the future

  • Having suffered with IBS since I was a teenager (approx 30 years) I have tried everything to try and get it under control. Over the last seven months it has worsened, possibly due to stress of two house moves, a relocation and a new job. On the worst days I have been unable to leave the house for fear of not being near a toilet. I read up on probiotics again (I had tried them before but with not much success) and discovered your website. So I thought I'd give them another go and ordered the Bowel Calm and the Daily Wellbeing Extra. What can I say? I am absolutely amazed. They arrived on Friday, on Sunday my husband and I went for a 6 mile walk, something that hasn't been possible for months. I am so glad I have found these products, they really are starting to put an end to years of misery! Thank you.

  • I gave my 6 month old girl Optibac Probiotics for her severe eczema. She had already had two infections and two courses of antibiotics at 4 months and 5/6 months but the second course was taken with probiotics and she has not had a skin infection ever since. Considering the severity of her eczema (two GPs saying it was the worst case they'd seen) this is amazing. She is now 1 and still taking daily sachets of Optibac, her eczema is clear (also thanks to the right steroid cream I should add) and I cannot thank them enough. She is also never ill (touch wood) despite her 4 year old big sister bringing home various preschool bugs. Her immune system has been given the boost it needed and then some - I recommend Optibac to everyone, they think I must be on commission! Thank you once again, and especially thank you to Steve Payne who recommended them in the first place and even purchased our first sachets for us. So grateful.

    Thanks for the review Katie, we'll be sure to pass the message onto Steve.

  • My husband and I have used several of Optibac's excellent products. We can recommend Bowel Calm and Well being in particular for helping to keep your digestive system on the right track. I've also taken the Extra Strength versions from time to time when a harder hit of probiotics is needed. We all suffer from an upset tum from time to time, and I've found that taking this great product can nip it in the bud. Things are usually back to normal within two or three days. These are excellent products with an excellent team of advisors behind them. Recommended to one and all.

  • After a course of tablets from my doctor I began suffering from diahorrea to the extent i was worried i had IBS. A friend who promotes organic foods "a little too much" recommended probiotics. After the second tablet of the extra strength ones my bowel movements were back to normal. I claimed co-incidence until 6 months later it cured the same problem again. I am a chartered engineer and not taken in by gimmick tablets. I hate to say it I now swear by these tablets

  • Two of us took them as prescribed and had no problems while in China. 3 days after stopping them I got stomach cramps, lasting for over a week. I later found out that this happened to my friend as well. I wonder to what degree they take over the system and whether there should be a gradual winding down of them.

  • Response from OptiBac Probiotics

    Hi Dave, were you taking the travel probiotic? I must say that this feedback is completely unprecedented. Generally speaking there is no need to 'wind down' after probiotics, and they certainly should not cause stomach cramps. If you would like to discuss further please call us, 01264 339 770, perhaps we can offer you a different product to try next time. Warm regards, Soraya

  • after years of holiday tummy every time i travelled away from home i tried travla. we holidayed in india & i ate salads,fruit, seafood & everything your recommended to avoid, i have to say my tummy has never been more settled & i felt generally better all round.

  • I also wish these products were available in Australia, but I am happy to order on line to receive them from you. Thanks.

  • Your website is an inspiration, easy to navigate and love the 'latest news' giving up-to-date findings on trials and research. Thank you so very much

  • I am very pleased with your products. I have always had a 'nervous' stomach to go along with asthma and later in life horrible eczema. Many years ago I got serious poisoning from of all things bad potatoes, and since then my life has been truly wrecked by being so ill. I must have ingested kilos of lotomil and loperamide. Even though I do drink litres of water enthusiastically I very often would be in a horrible state of dehydration. Everything seems to get me, many foods, stress and worst of all I have a bad allergy to aspirin and salicylates which is very difficult to get around as they're everywhere. ...I had heard that this probiotic range is good and I just went for it. I really don't buy into the drinks as being that helpful but the information about the products on your website gave me hope. I bought the For daily wellbeing, the For daily wellbeing EXTRA Strength, and For bowel calm. I have taken the EXTRA Strength and the bowel calm so far and am almost euphoric! I am very much looking forward to the new regularity product as it gives me a feeling of saftey to have products I can use if there's an emergency and the extra strength, bowel calm and regularity products should keep even a nervous Nelly like me happy. I feel so good after what was an awful weekend and I just can't stop smiling. ..Thanks for the excellent backup as well as the products. Kean.

  • I really love OptiBac and I really miss it here. There are no substitutes which could compare to it in Australia.

  • My healing practitioner Gabriele A. Franklin recommended to me all kinds of OptiBac products a long time ago. For the last 4 years they have become a firm fixture of every day and I'm satisfied with your high quality products. When I hear about friends on antibiotics, OptiBac's the first word leaving my mouth ;)
