OptiBac 'For every day'

In 'For every day' (formerly called 'For daily wellbeing'), the acidophilus and other bacteria have been selected for their specific, scientifically proven qualities such as their ability to survive to reach the gut alive. 'For every day' contains a variety of well-researched and documented strains, which are thought to settle in different parts of the small and large intestine or colon.

Sugar free

With no added sugars, artificial flavourings or colourings, OptiBac 'For every day' (formerly known as 'For daily wellbeing') provides a good alternative to sugary yoghurts and yoghurt drinks containing live cultures.

More about 'For every day'

Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11 : These live cultures are amongst the most well-researched and documented species of natural bacteria in the human gut. The specific strains of L. rhamnosus and L. acidophilus from OptiBac have been studied to survive your gastric acidity and bile salts and to reach the intestines without damage.

Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, Bifidobacterium breve Rosell-70 and Bifidobacterium bifidum Rosell-71 : Colonise primarily in the large intestine (or colon).

Lactococcus lactis Rosell-1058 : This strain from OptiBac is obtained from the kefir culture and is tested in vitro for its antimicrobial properties.

FOS fibres: The non-digestible FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) can act as a food source to stimulate growth of your body's live cultures, the Bifidobacteria in particular; creating what is known as a 'bifidogenic' effect.

Healthcare professionals can read scientific research on L. acidophilus Rosell-52 and L. rhamnosus Rosell-11 on the Probiotics Database.

Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175

  • I've been taking this product for three years now and it has been a revelation after years of debilitating weekly severe stomach pains and have recommended it to many friends who are now converts. It really has transformed my life where for over two years ALL pain left me. Sadly since the formula changed to one a day the stomach pains have returned on a four weekly basis. Please bring back the choice of the old formula. I'm horrified to think I have to return to the agonies of the past.

  • An end to unexplained illness
    I am extremely grateful to Optibac for the 'For every day' product which I have been taking for the last ten months. It was effective within two weeks and has totally overcome a wide range of symptoms that the NHS seemed unable to diagnose and relieve. Many of these were minor ailments that were unexplained but occurred sporadically and were debilitating. I suspect that many people have health issues with a similar root cause that might well be relieved by taking Optibac.
    I need to explain. I’ve experienced about forty different symptoms, some of which were severe and even life-threatening; others were things like irritable bowels, hay-fever type symptoms, muscle pains, headaches, mood swings, tiredness, confusion, temperature extremes, fainting…
    In 2013, I had an anaphylactic shock reaction to a rich meal including crab. I was not satisfied with the diagnosis that I had become ‘allergic to crab’, and nor on previously occasions was I comfortable with explanations for urticaria and a UTI. So my wife and I did a lot of browsing, including technical reports, and concluded that I was suffering from histamine intolerance (HIT). That suggested more minor ailments could also be food related. Indeed I had more and more frequent and scary reactions to food so that I could no longer enjoy social gatherings or restaurant meals.
    The problem is that a very wide range of foods are implicated. Fish, cheese, alcohol, ham, sausages, processed foods, certain fruit and vegetables can all impact histamine levels (google SIGHI).
    Eventually, I determined it must be due to bacteria in the intestines and was probably triggered by two courses of antibiotics that had been prescribed in 2010 and 2012. Therefore I sought an effective probiotic and was heartened to find histamine intolerance mentioned in Optibac’s FAQs. It seems HIT is barely acknowledged in this country and NHS advice on food allergy and intolerance seems both contradictory and misleading.
    Of course, this is my own opinion and I am not a healthcare professional. However, I am now able to eat and drink normally and have not experienced any of these symptoms in the last six months. So thank you again Optibac for recognising the syndrome and providing a cure.

  • I got introduced to Optibac via Christina, a good friend of mine, who is a know-it-all when it comes to your gut! I had been taking antibiotics for a long time and no one had warned me about its ef... Read more
