A quality 50 billion option from OptiBac, suitable for everyday use. For those who want a very high strength, yet high quality, live cultures supplement.
OptiBac Probiotics 'For every day MAX'
This premium quality, 50 billion live cultures supplement from OptiBac contains 3 extensively researched strains; L. acidophilus NCFM®, B. lactis HN019 & B. lactis Bl-04.
Each capsule contains more than 16 billion live microorganisms of each strain, including Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®, thought to be the most researched strain of acidophilus in the world. (For further reading see the acidophilus FAQ.)
All 3 strains in 'For every day MAX' are scientifically proven to reach the gut alive; surviving gut acidity and bile salts. They have also been studied in numerous clinical trials; offering a high quality option to those looking for a high strength natural bacteria product.
Furthermore, this product is vegan, does not require refrigeration and offers a guaranteed 50 billion live cultures per capsule until the end of expiry.
Research shows that it’s more important to look at the quality of the bacterial strains, before you look at the number of billions. The best live cultures supplements always list the strains of bacteria, and not just the species, because no strain is the same. Listing a strain shows transparency, and allows you to identify whether there is any research on it, what the quality of that research is and what potential benefits the strain may offer. It’s best to take the product with the most researched, high quality strains, which are most suited to your needs.
Whilst it’s not always necessary to take very high-doses of friendly bacteria, as in some cases a strain can be sufficient at doses of just 1 billion CFU, if you’re going to take a high strength live cultures supplement, then choose one containing some of the most researched strains in the world.
As a food supplement 'For every day MAX' can be given to adults and children (from 4 years upwards) with the following recommendations:
Take one capsule daily. If desired, or professionally directed, can be increased to two capsules a day.
For best results take daily and with food, preferably with breakfast and drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
For anyone unable to swallow capsules, the contents of the capsule can be mixed with a cold meal or beverage.
OptiBac will not cause dependency, and may be used on an ongoing basis.
Like the rest of the OptiBac range, this does not require refrigeration.
Store out of direct sunlight.
