Optibac - Everday Extra Strength
OptiBac 'For every day EXTRA Strength'
This advanced, dairy-free supplement from OptiBac contains 5 extensively researched strains, such as L. acidophilus NCFM® and B. bifidum Bb-02, in an extra strength dose of 20 billion live microorganisms per capsule, which includes 5 billion live cultures of Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®, thought to be the most researched strain of acidophilus in the world.
The OptiBac strains in 'For every day EXTRA Strength' (formerly known as 'For daily wellbeing EXTRA Strength') are some of the world's most researched and documented strains. All of the friendly bacteria in this supplement are scientifically proven to pass through stomach acidity to reach the gut alive.
What's more, this natural supplement is free from sugars, fats and flavourings that may be found in other food & drinks containing live cultures.
The human body is naturally home to both good and bad (pathogenic) bacteria, and keeping a healthy balance is thought to be an important factor in supporting healthy digestion and immunity. However, the body's intestinal balance of good and bad bacteria is delicate, and can easily be upset by factors such as antibiotics, stress, ageing, and diet.
People with a severe imbalance of good and bad bacteria in intestines may include:
- Those on long term antibiotics
- Those who suffer from conditions such as IBS, or IBD (eg. Crohn's Disease)
- People with skin conditions such as eczema or acne
