OptiBac 'For your cholesterol'

British Heart Foundation statistics reveal that 60% of the UK adult population have high cholesterol. 'For your cholesterol' by OptiBac has been especially formulated to help you maintain normal cholesterol levels. This supplement combines high quality friendly bacteria with alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, a type of omega 3) from cold pressed, virgin flaxseed oil.

For best results take this product for a minimum of three months. It can safely be taken on an ongoing basis with no risk of undesirable side effects.

Clinically trialled and tested

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) has undergone numerous clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy at helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, and the ability of this particular omega 3 (ALA) to support health has been validated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Our high quality ALA is sourced from cold pressed virgin flax seed oil.

The very specific live cultures in this supplement ('AB-Life' Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7527, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7528, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7529) have undergone a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial which was published in the British Journal of Nutrition in May 2013. What's more these strains from OptiBac have been tested and shown to survive environmental stressors and gastric acidity, to survive to reach the gut alive.

  • I have a complicated health history of heredity high cholesterol for about 6 years. Maintaining a diet alone wouldn't lower my cholesterol. But combined with this OptiBac for lowering cholesterol my cholesterol has lowered from 7 to 5.5 in just over a year.

    Please remember a few months with an unhealthy diet will not enable you. This product worked because I took it as I should take it, a healthy diet and the right kind of exercise (very gentle) and over time it worked. I worked hard and stuck with it - first noticing regular bowl movements, which is why I started taking them. I had no idea then that over time my cholesterol would be lowered.

    Thank you OptiBac,

  • I had my cholesterol measured in October 2015 and the readings were:
    TC - 8.5, LDL: 7.1 and HDL 1.4.
    Ratio 6:1

    So I started to take For your cholesterol in December and took it for 3 months in combination with a low fat/low sugar diet. I lost about a stone in weight and have felt much healthier.
    In March, my cholesterol readings had dropped:TC 7.9, LDL 6.6, HDL 1.3.
    Whilst these levels are still very high, my doctor was pleased that the level has come down and is happy for me to continue with the probiotics and lifestyle changes to see if it reduces further.
