First of all, I'd like to say that the ordering service at this company is excellent!
I have been using 'For women' for a year or so on a daily basis - I'd previously had a very persistent Candida thrush infection which did not respond to any treatment.
Taking For women along with some other helpful supplements and medications now manages to keep things healthy for me!
I've been having some trouble with mild thrush during pregnancy. OptiBac for women has really helped reduce the symptoms and, um... aroma (*blushes*). There is lots of helpful information on the OptiBac website about taking their products in pregnancy which put my mind at ease, and my midwife was also very happy for me to take it. I would recommend this product!
I had been having problems with recurrent cystitis for 25 years. I tried antibiotics and D-mannose to no avail, so tried taking one 'Saccharomyces boulardii' each day along with the 'For women'.
I noticed a difference straight away. I have been taking the probiotics for ten months now and no symptoms since.
My elderly mother also takes this combination and it's for cystitis and it's helped her too.
This is an excellent product. It has helped a great deal with staying healthy and avoiding thrush in the humidity. I also take 'Saccharomyces Boulardii' and 'For every day' on an ongoing basis. I recommended them to a friend who has had the same great results. I was very impressed with OptiBac's customer service -particularly Kerry, their nutritional therapist, who has been very knowledgeable and patient with my queries. I highly recommend the company and their products.
I recently read an article about your OptiBac probiotics in Woman and Home, having purchased a months supply and found it has helped my recurring cystitis, I have ordered a further 3 months supply.
I have suffered on and off for over 10 years, and taken an antibiotic as a maintenance dose of one per night. Since starting the OptiBac probiotics I have stopped taking the maintenance dose and intend to continue with just OptiBac probiotics in the hope that at long last I have found the answer to this debilitating condition. Also many thanks for your excellent service.
Newcastle on Tyne—
I'm perimenopausal; and around 6 months ago started suffering vaginal dryness - so bad that I kept thinking I had UTIs. After a short time using OptiBac 'for women', I experienced a great improvement; and I continue to use it daily. The problem hasn't been completely eradicated (I still suffer occasional dryness, usually whenever I have a period); but most days now I am completely comfortable.
Having suffered from cystitis for some time, and using repeated antibiotics, I wanted to try a more natural alternative.
After taking 'For women' for around 4-5 months on a maintenance dose of 1 capsule, I haven't had any problems since, and recent tests revealed I was free of infection. This product has changed my life!
I'd also like to add that the staff at this company are extremely helpful.
I couldn't recommend these enough! I was first put on to them by a health shop as I would get recurrent cystitis and BV. I have been using them for over a year now and have found that I have not had a case of cystitis or BV once, even in the cold winter months when it would be more prevalent.
As a postmenopausal woman I have coped well with most things but frequent UTIs and vaginal dryness have been a real issue. Following my own reading (doctors only suggest cranberry tablets and these can be quite acidic) I have found that these probiotics have helped a lot. In fact, I got my first UTI again when I ran out of them. I am not sure if they help with vaginal dryness but they certainly have improved the burning and uncomfortable feelings in this area.
I started using OptiBac probiotics For Women (intimate health) as it was recommended by my consultant to ease the symptoms of my reoccurring thrush and cystitis. I have tried many different treatments and unfortunately, none of them worked in the long run so far. I am pleased to report that since I have been using Optibac on a regular basis, recently on a cyclical basis (2 weeks before my period) my discharge discontinued and the frequency of cystitis is lower, though it is not completely over.
