Optibac For Women recommended in Marie Claire

Leona Beeson BSc (Hons) Psychology

Our vaginal health supplement For Women has been mentioned in a recent article from Marie Claire!

There’s always a buzz at Optibac HQ when we’re mentioned in the press, but we’re particularly excited this time as we’ve been recommended in none other than Marie Claire!

In the article, which is called ‘There’s been an 100% spike in search for probiotics for women: 7 brands a health coach recommends’, nutritional health coach Holly Zoccolan explains what women’s probiotics actually are and suggests a few of her own favourite brands. We were absolutely delighted to see that our For Women was included in this elite list!

Probiotic bacteria for women

The article covers how probiotic bacteria work and the reasons why women might want to consider taking them, including improving digestion, vaginal health and immune health*. As Zoccolan states, “Probiotic bacteria help the body to function at its best”*. 

It also explains how friendly bacteria can be found in fermented foods as well as in supplement form. Some of the best dietary sources are yoghurt, kimchi and miso, though, as Zoccolan points out, “the majority of our diets contain more processed and less natural foods…”. Therefore, supplementing with a well-researched probiotic supplement may be a good idea. 

For Women: the health coach’s choice

The article lists For Women as one of the supplements to “add to basket now” – and we have to admit, we wholeheartedly agree! Not only does For Women contain highly researched probiotic strains clinically trialled in thousands of women, but it is also completely natural and vegan. This is a supplement that has been designed by women, for women – from all walks of life.

At Optibac Probiotics, we know that the vaginal microbiome is different to that of the gut, so we’ve formulated a supplement with world-renowned strains Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and L. reuteri RC-14®, plus L. paracasei F-19®. These strains have all been proven to survive to reach the vagina alive and support vaginal and urinary tract health*, ensuring the vagina flora remains balanced*. 

What’s more, with every pack purchased, we donate a portion of sales to international women’s rights charity Womankind Worldwide. We believe that women’s health and women’s rights go hand-in-hand, so we’re proud to support such an incredible organisation. With your support, we’ve raised over £400,000 – and counting.
