I've suffered from irregular bowels all my life but since taking OptiBac For every day, it has changed my life. I no longer feel bloated and sluggish, it's amazing how much better I feel. I've read a lot about the importance of gut health and am so relieved I've finally found a natural product which genuinely makes a positive difference.
Brilliant. Settled my digestive system, a good result. Will continue to use.
Worked really well, thank you
I like it. It helps in many situations.
It definitely feels as though it starts working almost immediately. I feel shifts in my tummy.
Good stuff. Compliment the probiotics with a high fibre diet and prebiotics, such as garlic and onions (increase your intake of these in your cooking). This will help you get the most out of this good bacteria. The good bacteria needs the right foods in the gut. Decrease your sugar intake and junk food and increase your whole foods! This will boost your immune system!
I gave it a score of 5 on the previous 2-a-day capsules. These were much better for me and please can you bring these back. Much better, and the 2-a-day formula suited me perfectly. I don't like the 1-a-day at all, even though I believe all the information given.
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 effects on my gut health! Well sadly, not even my GA! However, this all changed after Christina told me all about the power of probiotics in healing the bad effects that the antibiotics have left behind and was considerate enough to get me my first Optibac bottle...the rest is history and I've been using - and recommending - Optibac products ever since because, whether your take antibiotics or not - as a woman, apparently probiotics are good for you anyway! <3
