'For travelling abroad' from OptiBac is the ideal supplement for travel. With species such as L. acidophilus and S. boulardii this, like the rest of the range, does not require refrigeration.

  • Hi,

    I took my wife and adult son to India for three weeks and I have to be honest I was a bit scared as there was a lot of travelling planned and to have an upset stomach in that circumstance was my idea of hell.

    We took the OptiBac travellers capsules (For travelling abroad) with us and save for one of us having one very short single bout of vomiting (obviously they ate some bacterial poisoned food which the only response was to vomit out but one usually expects this to be followed by diarrhoea but not in this case) we were to my amazement absolutely fine. So I wont be travelling outside Europe without OptiBac.

  • My 14 year old daughter and I travelled to Ecuador this summer. We started taking the Opti Bac a few days before we left and used it every day for the two weeks we were there. Having travelled a fair bit, we are generally cautious the first few days in a new country to allow our bodies to adjust. However, we both had a sense that we could be a bit more cavalier. We immediately started eating our meals out of the market stalls and drank the fresh juices made at the road side stands. We ate everything and anything we wanted and had absolutely no ill effects. My husband and I are traveling to Nicaragua this winter and we will always travel with Opti Bac now.

  • We have used these on two holidays to Egypt and have never had any kind of stomach upset whilst others around us have been suffering. I would recommend them highly.

  • Running an NGO and taking groups of paying volunteers out to remote areas of India and Nepal, I recommend a good Probiotic for before, during and after the trips. Having trialled Optibac recently in the foothills of Nepal, I primarily recommend this product to all my teams .

  • I've been living in India now for over a month and taking the 'For travelling abroad' product religiously every day. I am very happy to say that so far I've entirely avoided any sort of tummy upset! What's great is that taking OptiBac has helped me not to be unnecessarily cautious about what I'm eating and drinking and miss all the delicious opportunities that are out here. I also feel like the change in diet to a lot of rice and breads would have almost certainly made me feel sluggish and bloated had I not been taking probiotics - which would have been a nightmare in this heat. Highly recommend this product for people on extended travel! Thank you OptiBac!

  • Hi – Just wanted to add our experience of taking Optibac for Travelling. We love our holidays and particularly like Egypt. Unfortunately, each time we went we had ‘funny tummies’ which meant we couldn't leave the hotel room for days! Then we discovered Optibac! We followed the directions and took the tablets a few days before the holiday and continually until a few days after our return. Since we have been doing this, we have not even had one day of being ill abroad. For those who are concerned about the price....can I suggest that it is a small price to pay to save days of your holiday? Also, a much healthier alternative to taking medication (and the price of those abroad is very varied!) to treat symptoms after the damage has already been done. So THANK YOU SO MUCH Optibac!

  • These were recommended for my 16 year old son to take when on a 10 day school trip to Sri Lanka to the Tsunami section. He was the only child that didn't get an upset stomach whilst away. He said they work so we have supplied this website to the teacher for this years school trip. I can't recommend them enough and would certainly use them again.
