Optibac Probiotics: 6 Reasons to consider them

8 October 2018  |  Editor

We're often asked what prompts us to include certain brands of supplement on our website. The truth is they have to be "top brands" and by that we don't mean "top sellers", we mean that they have to satisfy our criteria for quality, research and manufacturing processes. Of course, we do take into account price, but this is not so important. They do say, "you get what you pay for". In the case of Optibac one might say you get rather more than that.

As it happens, Optibac satisfies all these criteria, including good pricing. The picture is of the family that run Optibac. Read below to see why we've includes them but first, here is a quick summary:

  1. The specialise in probiotics so all their attention is focussed on this area
  2. They research in their field is the best in the UK
  3. The manufacturing process is carefully designed to get the highest quality end product
  4. The directors use them themselves
  5. The range is kept limited with products for specific different types of users
  6. They are partnered with some of the World's  leading institutes

The OptiBac brand was formed in 2004 under the company name Wren Laboratories Ltd. 

Based near Andover, Optibac have partnered with some of the world's leading institutes in the field, and are dedicated to developing an expert range of the highest quality specialist probiotics.

Unlike many other excellent brands producing probiotics, optic specialise in only bacterial culture products so all their time and effort is dedicated to this field, thus avoiding spreading expertise over too many different supplement types.

The range consists of 12 different live cultures supplements. Their expertise is in exploring specific species and strains. This is very important as research continues to show that different live cultures will have different modes of action in the body. We are proud to have introduced a number of strains to the UK, including pure Saccharomyces boulardiiBifidobacterium lactisBB-12® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14® in For women.

Then Optibac directors all take our supplements on a daily basis, and believe wholeheartedly in what they do.
