OptiBac 'For every day EXTRA Strength'

  • High quality & high strength good bacteria supplement for daily use, scientifically proven to reach the gut alive
  • Provides 20 billion live microorganisms per capsule, guaranteed until end of expiry
  • Contains 4 different strains, including Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®; thought to be the most researched strain of acidophilus in the world
  • Does not require refrigeration, contrary to some other live cultures supplements
  • Suitable for women during pregnancy, vegans and vegetarians, and gluten free for those with coeliac disease or an intolerance
  • Contains no added sugars, artificial flavourings or colourings

This advanced, dairy-free supplement from OptiBac contains 4 extensively researched strains, such as Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®, in an extra strength dose of 20 billion live microorganisms per capsule. This includes 5 billion live cultures of L. acidophilus NCFM® alone, which is thought to be the most researched strain of acidophilus in the world.

All of the friendly bacteria in OptiBac 'For every day EXTRA Strength' are scientifically proven to pass through stomach acidity to reach the gut alive. What's more, this natural supplement is free from sugars, fats and flavourings that may be found in other food & drinks containing live cultures. As a company we value quality over strength. Whilst this product contains an impressive 20 billion microorganisms per capsule, it's the premium research behind the strains that we like to shout about!

It is important to note that this supplement, unlike many other live cultures products, does not require refrigeration due to improvements in freeze drying techniques and the strains within the product that are naturally robust to survive harsher conditions.

Available in two pack sizes of 30 or 90 capsules of live cultures. Each capsule provides a count of over 20 billion natural bacteria.

This is a food supplement and it is not intended to prevent, treat, nor diagnose any medical conditions.

Product updates


  • Please note: Titanium dioxide was removed from this product in January 2019. As a result of removing this ingredient, you can now see the product within the vegetarian capsule which is subject to natural variations in colour, from off white to pale yellow.

    The overall stability and viability of the product has not been affected in any way and we hope you like the more natural looking capsule.

    The small amount of the bacterial strain Bifidobacterium bifidum Bb-02 in the original blend has also been removed, bringing the supplement in line with the exact formulation that has undergone more significant clinical research**, and which will be studied in further clinical trials.

Instructions For Use

Food supplement suitable for adults and children (from 1 year upwards) with the following recommendations:

  • Take one to two capsules daily with food, preferably breakfast, or as professionally directed.
  • Drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
  • For anyone unable to swallow capsules, the contents of the capsule can be mixed with a cold meal or beverage.
  • Do not exceed recommended daily dosage.

Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. Those with serious medical conditions should consult their doctor before use.

OptiBac will not cause dependency, and may be used on an ongoing basis.

Storage

Like the rest of the OptiBac range, 'For every day EXTRA Strength' does not require refrigeration. Store out of direct sunlight.

Live cultures are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions e.g. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, infants with short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care.

  • Absolutely useless. Made no difference whatsoever. Left a score of 1, as couldn't leave zero. Total waste of money

  • I'm male, aged 40, I started taking these around 8 months ago and I felt the difference after the first day or two (I'd tried 2 other brands before then and one did nothing for me and another made me feel slightly worse). My digestion is now completely "regular" and I feel like my old self again, in the days when I didn't have to worry about my digestion all the time. I've recommended them to friends and family and I even take them on holiday with me. They're definitely worth trying, you don't realise how demanding a bad gut can be until there's a massive weight off your mind.
