Often known as 'friendly bacteria' or 'live cultures', probiotics are microorganisms which have proven health benefits on the body.

OptiBac Probiotics

The OptiBac Probiotics range consists of eleven different supplements containing live cultures - all natural, and with no added colourings, flavours or preservatives. Our range includes supplements suitable for infants, pregnant & breastfeeding mothers, for vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs, and for those who are lactose intolerant. (Suitability varies across the product, for more information see our suitability FAQs)

How does OptiBac Probiotics compare?

At OptiBac Probiotics, we specialise entirely in live cultures, and we consider ourselves experts in the field. Our strains are of the highest quality; each strain undergoes tests to ensure it is stable at room temperature, can survive stomach acidity, and can adhere to the gut wall lining.

In particular we focus on taking specific strains and targeting specific health conditions - acknowledging the fact that different species and strains have different effects on the body. This is extremely important to us.

We are completely transparent when it comes to the make-up of our products, and unlike many others, we cite not only the microorganism's family and species, but the strain (the specific type) as well. Full ingredients are listed on each product page as well as all ingredients across all products being listed here. And furthermore, when you consider the content and quality of our supplements, we offer fantastic value for money (prices range from £3.25 to £59.99) and hope you will agree.

Most importantly, our customers are happy! Find out what others have to say, read our customer reviews.

Getting personal

OptiBac Probiotics is a family business set up by a community pharmacist and his son in 2004. Both of the daughters joined the company after leaving university, and although there may be no blood relation to the rest of the team, they are as good as family too! We are based in Andover in sunny Hampshire, we all love herbal tea and if you meet us you're bound to catch us talking about probiotics, even in our spare time and holidays. Sorry, we can't help it, we're just passionate!
