It's a crisp winter's day in February but we’ve got a spring in our step here at Optibac HQ. We're super excited to announce that we've been awarded the Rude Health 'Best International Product' award for our 'For every day' probiotic supplement, as voted for by Irish readers!
As we're growing more and more, it's wonderful to see our efforts are making difference in Ireland. The Rude Health Award recognise the best natural products available and are voted for by thousands of readers and followers of the magazine across the country. It means the world to us to have even been considered for this accolade, let alone to win it. Each and every one of you deserves a MASSIVE thank you voting for us - it's all because of your support!
It's also important because as you might have heard, the trade association for Ireland's health stores (Health Stores Ireland) are currently campaigning against the looming VAT increase on all food supplements in Ireland - our supplements included! So, just as Irish voters have shown support for our probiotics here with this award, we hope to return the favour by doing our part in the lobbying against these potential price hikes. Watch this space...
Our champion supplement 'For every day' contains 6 well-researched strains of friendly bacteria, including Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Bifidobacterium longum Rosell-175, and is our bestseller in the Republic of Ireland. Each capsule contains 5 billion probiotics and is scientifically proven to survive stomach acidity to reach the gut alive. What's more, 'For every day' is vegetarian and gluten free, contains no added sugars, artificial colours or flavourings and doesn't require refrigeration, meaning you can take it anywhere with you!
