Live cultures supplement especially for those taking antibiotics. Take during and after your antibiotics.
OptiBac 'For those on antibiotics'
For people who are taking antibiotics (e.g. penicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline), or who have recently finished an antibiotic course, the strains of natural bacteria in this supplement are especially selected for their suitability and safety. These two high quality strains of natural bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11, have been extremely well-researched, and are scientifically proven to survive to reach the gut alive, even during a course of antibiotics.
Can be given to adults and children (from 1 year and over) with the following recommendations:
Take one capsule daily with food, preferably with breakfast*, every day during antibiotic course, and for a few days afterwards or until the pack has been completed.
Continue taking until pack is completed and add a second pack if the antibiotic treatment lasts more than one week.
OptiBac live cultures may be used on an ongoing basis.
*Can be taken at the same time as antibiotics - this product has been clinically trialled alongside antibiotics and found to reach the gut alive.
Each capsule provides 4 billion live cultures
