OptiBac 'For women'

'For women' contains two highly researched strains of live cultures, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®, which have been clinically trialled by over 2,500 women around the world.

The two strains in this product are proven to survive to reach the intimate area. With over 30 years of research, you can trust that if you want a friendly bacteria supplement especially for female intimate flora, OptiBac 'For women' is the one for you.

This live cultures supplement is safe and appropriate for women in the menopause, as well as for pregnant & breastfeeding mothers.

Alongside taking this product, it may also be worthwhile considering lifestyle factors such as diet (for example reducing your intake of sugar, which can feed harmful bacteria and yeasts), increasing your water intake, and avoiding wipes, douches and soaps in the intimate area, which can upset the natural vaginal pH.

Healthcare professionals can read scientific research on L. rhamnosus GR-1® and L. reuteri RC-14® on the Probiotics Database.

For every pack purchased of 'For women', OptiBac will donate 20p to £1 (20p per 14 capsules, 30p per 30 capsules, and £1 per 90 capsules) to the international women's rights charity, Womankind Worldwide. Womankind Worldwide partners with organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to challenge discrimination of, and violence against, women.

As of March 2018 together we have raised over £106,000 for Womankind Worldwide, so thank you to all those who recommend, stock and take this product.

  • After months of trial and steadily upping the dosage as directed I still have BV symptoms. It has helped to take away the smell but I was still left with a runny discharge. If anything It has just masked the symptoms slightly and caused my BV test to show up as negative, even though the problem is still there. Hasn't worked for me at all. I gave it 2 stars because it kind of helped to manage the odour a little.

  • AMAZING!

    I suffered with BV a few times, took two tablets that night and I was completely fine, back to normal, no discomfort at all!

    I'm genuinely shocked. Been suffering for months and months, I am so happy I invested.
