We have another new member of the family – please welcome ‘For pregnancy’ to the Optibac bunch!
Earlier this year, we introduced our new supplement for infants called ‘For your baby’. This was part of our continued task to provide you with the best targeted support from your live cultures. We want to cater to every different stage of your journey, which is why we have now created ‘For pregnancy’.
This is our first supplement especially formulated for new mums. It can be used from conception all the way through pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
Two new strains join our range with ‘For pregnancy’: Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 and Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14®. Alongside these two is old favourite Bifidobacterium lactis HN019, which you can find in our superstar ‘For every day MAX’.
All of these strains are extremely well-researched, particularly in pregnant women, so you can feel confident that you’re giving your special new arrival the best start in life.
The supplement is designed to take care of mum’s health at this special time, during pregnancy and into early motherhood. These premium probiotic strains have been researched to support common pregnancy-related health issues such as sluggish digestion and regularity, vaginal health concerns, and low mood.
The superstar Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 has been shown to help improve gut motility, support immune health, and improve the composition of the gut microbiome, which you can read more about on our sister site, the Probiotics Learning Lab. Taking Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001 has been associated with a greater sense of wellbeing during pregnancy and for six months after giving birth, which is a particularly vulnerable time for new mums to experience low mood. Alongside Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14®, the HN001 strain has also shown potential to support vaginal health during and after pregnancy.
‘For pregnancy’ comes in capsule form, each of which provides 12 billion live cultures (take a look at this article to find out more about what a billions count actually means).
We know that every pregnancy is different, because every woman is different. Inclusivity is extremely important to us, so we’ve made sure ‘For pregnancy’ is suitable for as many women as possible. It’s vegan, and free from gluten, artificial sugars, flavours and preservatives. Find out more about how we champion diversity and women’s rights.
Optibac was founded on family values – we were brought to life by three siblings and their father, and our family extends to all our employees and customers. We wouldn’t be where we are today without your continued support, so we want to say a huge thank you. Find out more about who we are and what we do, and why we think we’re the best choice for you and your loved ones.
If you haven’t tried our supplements before, why not join the family today? Try ‘For pregnancy’, and let us help you through this exciting new chapter in your life.
