Frequently Asked Questions

What are Optibac probiotics for?

Like other probiotics, Optibac probiotics are scientifically formulated to complement your body’s natural gut bacteria and balance your microbiome. Optibac probiotics help to replenish good bacteria in your gut, easing the symptoms of bloating and supporting overall digestive function and immune health.

Which daily live cultures should I take?

The best friendly bacteria - or live cultures - to take on a daily basis depends on your specific, individual needs. There are a range of probiotics designed for daily use in the Optibac range, and these each have different benefits. For example, Optibac Every Day is great if you’re new to the world of live cultures and Every Day EXTRA is designed for a vegan diet. If you are looking for the highest strength live cultures then Every Day MAX is for you.

Should you take Optibac before or after food?

You should take the majority of products in the Optibac range alongside a meal, preferably during breakfast or shortly after. Contrary to the misconception that probiotics should be taken on an empty stomach, it is important to note that this is not the case. Without the presence of food, your stomach acid can significantly reduce the viability of live bacteria supplements, resulting in the death of approximately 90-95% of the beneficial probiotic bacteria. This occurs due to the naturally acidic environment of an empty stomach, which can be detrimental to the survival of these friendly bacteria.

How long do Optibac products take to work?

The length of time it takes for Optibac products to work depends upon the specific strain of probiotic being used, as well as the composition of the gut microbiome and the reason you’re taking probiotic supplements in the first place.

However, the effects from Optibac probiotics can be felt anywhere between 3 days and 2 weeks. When the symptoms of your digestive health issues begin to clear, that’s when you know that Optibac products have started to work.

When it comes to how long you should take Optibac for, it is best to follow a unique approach that suits your individual needs. While one option is to take it for a week initially to support your existing gut bacteria, another is to undergo a week-long course every month or whenever the need arises. Alternatively, some people find it beneficial to incorporate one sachet into their daily routine continuously.
