OptiBac 'For women' is for those seeking an expert friendly bacteria supplement for women. It contains the extensively researched strains of natural bacteria Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®, which are trialled in thousands of women around the world and proven to survive to reach the vaginal flora. Suggested for daily use, each capsule provides 2.3 billion live microorganisms guaranteed until end of expiry. With over 30 years of research, you can trust that if you want a friendly bacteria supplement especially for female intimate flora then 'For women' is the one for you.
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.
This live cultures supplement is safe and appropriate for women in the menopause, as well as for pregnant & breastfeeding mothers.
Available in three pack sizes of 14, 30 or 90 capsules of live cultures. Each capsule provides a count of over 2.3 billion natural bacteria.
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.
This is a food supplement and it is not intended to prevent, treat, nor diagnose any medical conditions.

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.
