This OptiBac immunity supplement is an expert blend of natural plant extracts and Vitamin C which has antioxidant properties. 'For daily immunity' is recommended to those who lead active, demanding lifestyles, those with weaker immune responses, and for the elderly who naturally have lower levels of natural bacteria such as Bifidobacteria.
The varied types of microorganisms in OptiBac 'For daily immunity', such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium breve are thought to settle in different areas of the gut. What's more, this supplement includes a unique combination of polyphenols, and a unique synergy exists between the Vitamin C, the natural plant extracts and the friendly bacteria in OptiBac 'For daily immunity'.
Natural plant extracts: Grape Seed Extract, Pine Bark Extract and Green Tea Extract in 'For daily immunity' are standardised and rich in polyphenols. Antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, seek out free radicals (chemicals that can cause cell damage in the body) and neutralise them. These plant extracts also contain oligomeric procyanidins (OPCs), believed to promote a variety of health benefits such as supporting normal blood pressure and healthy blood vessels and veins. The natural extracts of green tea, grape seed and pine bark in this product are all standardised with a high polyphenol and OPCs count.
Antioxidant Vitamin C: Vitamin C has been proven to contribute to: the normal function of your immune system, to the protection of cells from oxidative stress (ie. an antioxidant), and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
OptiBac: Lactobacillus acidophilus - one of the most well-known species of natural bacteria resident in the human gut. Our strain of acidophilus passes through numerous tests to ensure its survival through gastric acidity and bile salts expected at mealtimes; and to reach the intestines alive.
Bifidobacteria: Bifidobacterium longum, Bifidobacterium breve and Bifidobacterium infantis settle primarily in the large intestine or colon.
All of the OptiBac live cultures strains in this product have been tested and shown to survive stomach acidity.
