Can I take two OptiBac supplements at the same time?
You can take two or more OptiBac products at the same.
It is possible to 'mix and match' products within the OptiBac range, and it is extremely difficult, if not impossible, to overdose on friendly bacteria.
There are certain scenarios where customers may particularly wish to take more than one live cultures supplement at once:
- 'Saccharomyces boulardii' (formerly known as 'For bowel calm') is a friendly yeast, with a different mode of action to other microorganisms (most of our products are friendly bacteria), and can therefore be safe and appropriate to take alongside any other supplement in the OptiBac range. Many of our customers take both 'For every day EXTRA Strength' and 'Saccharomyces boulardii' on a regular basis.
- Many people have difficulty choosing between 'For every day' (for general friendly bacteria support) and 'For daily immunity' (made to support immunity). If you are having trouble deciding between the two try 'mixing and matching' by taking one capsule of each product every day. This way, your body receives Vitamin C from 'For daily immunity', with additional live cultures & FOS fibres from 'For every day'.
Certain live cultures supplements are designed and shown to target specific areas of the body, for example OptiBac 'For women' has been proven to survive to reach the vaginal flora. In this case customers may wish to take 'For women' as well as one of the other OptiBac supplements which are designed to reach the gut. Many of our female customers take 'For women' every day as well as one of our general daily supplements such as 'For every day'.
