OptiBac Probiotics 'Bifidobacteria & fibre'
'Bifidobacteria & fibre' (For maintaining regularity) is a natural supplement containing carefully selected microorganisms and fibres. Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® has seen extensive scientific and clinical research, and is thought to be the world's most researched strain of the entire family of Bifidobacteria. What's more this high quality strain is scientifically proven to survive stomach acidity and biliary salts to reach the gut alive.

How does 'Bifidobacteria & fibre' work?
It is generally accepted that people with lower levels of good bacteria in the gut are more susceptible to various health conditions including bloating and constipation. Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® is a type of microorganism, of natural bacteria, also known as live cultures. Fructooligosaccharides is often referred to as a 'prebiotic', thought to be the food source for the body's natural bacteria; they can be found in certain foods such as Jerusalem artichokes, leeks & onions.
Regularly supplementing your levels of good bacteria with a high quality live cultures supplement may be a positive step in supporting bowel regularity.
Note: The high dose of prebiotic fibres in this supplement, Fructooligosaccharides, may initially result in flatulence and/or bloating in some people. This is a positive sign that the friendly bacteria in your body are being stimulated, and side-effects should soon cease. If these side effects do continue for more than 3 - 4 days, consider reducing the dosage of 'Bifidobacteria & fibre' (For maintaining regularity) before gradually building up again.
Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® is likely the most researched lactis probiotic strain in the world. See Scientific research on 'For maintaining regularity'.
