Over 15 years ago I was diagnosed with IBS. However, after going abroad in June 2016 with some friends and having a terrible time with IBS, our friend who was taking OptiBac recommended I try Optibac Every Day and Immunity. I started in September 2016 and I haven't looked back and have never felt better. IBS appears to be a thing of the past and I do wish doctors would take probiotics seriously even if they trialled them with their patients as I am sure there would be a high percentage of success and a lower cost to the NHS
I've been using a wide range of different probiotics to maintain healthy gut health and I must say, these are some of my favourites!
I will definitely recommend them to my clients!
These OptiBac probiotics 'For women' are excellent. I was diagnosed with Group B Strep at the end of November - after trying several antibiotics I finally found this product on the internet and I must say after taking these for a month, I am finally back to normal. Will continue to take one a day and will also be trying your 'For every day' probiotic alongside. I can't thank you enough.
I had to write a review. My 21 year old student daughter was diagnosed with ibs several years ago and suffers from numerous, life threatening food allergies. During the last year or so she has suffered from generalised anxiety and insomnia in addition to bloating, nausea and cramps and severe aecma . She was up to a few weeks ago on the verge of leaving university and going back next year as she was completely exhausted and had got to the point where she only felt awake for an hour a day. The GP prescribed Prozac which she didn't want to take. She was desperate, saw an acupuncturist who said he had rarely seen such low energy levels. We were at a loss, but a chance conversation led her to a nutritionist who suspected candida overgrowth, I looked it up and virtually nothing on the NHS website so was sceptical but we would try anything. Some tests were sent off to America but whilst we waited for the results I investigated different probiotics and actibac came out top, ordered some and she started taking g them pending the results, along with numerous vitamins. Let me tell you, day by day, little by little, she has come back to life and we are getting our daughter back. It is miraculous. All ibs symptoms have gone, her constant headaches started reducing and , two weeks later, have gone. The life is back in her eyes and she is feeling less anxious. She's a worrier so we don't expect she will never be anxious again, but we seem to have turned a corner. I can't explain what a difference the optibac daily has made. I take them now and the gluten linked bloating has gone, my symptoms were nothing like as severe but my stomach just feels healthier. I praise this product to anyone who will listen! Thanks optibac!
Excellent product, prompt delivery. Helpful to keep in good health, especially as we are over 70 yrs.
I have had IBS for well over 21 years, and various treatments from doctors didn't stop the attacks. I was told to try OptiBac Probiotics by the health shop in Morpeth, Northumberland. With a 'try anything once' attitude, I did try them and have had quite amazing results.
I can honestly say that they have really helped tremendously - I just take two after breakfast. So now after 3 months, they are the only capsules I take for IBS, and added bonus - my tummy is much flatter!
So, hand on heart, your OptiBac Probiotics are so much better than others, and for me they help manage a rather unpleasant IBS.
I have been talking 'Every Day' probiotics for about 2 months now. I take 5 days a week. I used to suffer extreme bloated stomach and discomfort, I was asked if I was pregnant on more than one occasion. Since I started these have not had a single occurrence. I have tried various vitamin and mineral supplements in the past but could honestly say I never felt any impact. So I am confident that the probiotics have turned things around for me. I have just started my husband on the probiotic with vitamin C as he is always getting colds. I will also use the travel one too, we go to West Africa frequently and always suffer from some stomach problems. I plan to try OptiBac for women as a sufferer of BV, I have been very encouraged by the feedback on this site. Great products OptiBac.
My 3 year old daughter has a milk allergy and also since she was born she has been on a lot of antibiotics and her bowels were really suffering, loose and smelly all the time. I tried probiotics before so when I was told about this range I was sceptical, never the less I tried and after about 2-3 weeks the change in my daughters stools are amazing. She is now 4 and regular like clockwork!! Thank you so much for helping my little girl be happier and for me too!
I rarely post internet reviews but am willing to make an exception for OptiBac. Wonderful range of probiotic products nearly all suitable for vegetarians, an excellent evidence-based website and very good customer service with prompt informative responses to email enquiries. Cannot comment on the ordering process or delivery since I am lucky that my local Waitrose stocks a limited range (I take ‘For every day’). The only negative comment, and this is only if I want to be pedantic, is that the capsules come in tubs (rather than blister packs) that are a little tricky to open and so this could be an issue for those with dexterity problems.
I suffer with Ulcerative colitis and have been on medication for the last 6 years. I started taking Optibac about 6 months ago. My last full scope and 8 biopsies stated no inflammation and my colitis has diminished. I have suffered with oral thrush for years and now been on so many medications. This went within 2 weeks of Optibac. I think if you can get your gut health correct then the nutrients you eat get a chance to work. Feeling so much better.
