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.

  • Amazing product! The only thing that worked to get rid of cystitis and candida infections after years of going back and forth to doctors. Tried creams, pessaries, tablets nothing worked. After taking this for only a few days knew it was working. Always keep some in the house now.
    Not cheap but worth every penny!

  • Oh My God, if ever there was a miracle product-THIS IS IT! I have been suffering with recurrent urinary tract infections for a long time and the pain, burning and stinging have left me feeling unable to cope with day to day life. I took two of these little beauties after dinner last night and for the first time in ages I slept peacefully and by about 2:30 when I needed to go to the loo, I discovered that the burning and stinging had completely disappeared! These bad boys work fast and if you suffer from dryness down under, you can wave bye bye to that as well as this subsided gradually. Who needs Cranberry juice and D-Mannose when you’ve got these. Definitely worth investing in-without a shadow of a doubt.
