    Instructions for use

    Food supplement suitable for adults and children (from 1 year onwards) with the following recommendations:

    • Take 1 capsule daily with food, preferably breakfast, starting 3-5 days before departure, continuing during travel abroad and for a few days upon return from travel, or as professionally directed.
    • Drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
    • For anyone unable to swallow capsules, the content of the capsules may be mixed with a cold meal or beverage.

    Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. Those with serious medical conditions should consult their doctor before use. OptiBac will not cause dependency, and may be used on an ongoing basis.

    • Started these before my holiday . I then kept taking them everyday during my holiday to Thailand and then through Cambodia to Vietnam. So lots of different foods. I had no problems and took them when I returned. Would definitely take them again .

    • Took several days before and after as well as all the time I was travelling around Cambodia and Vietnam. Only had one day I was off colour which was really good for me! So pleased I took them and would use again.

      Wendy Gray - 4th June 2020

    • Purchased these probiotics before my holiday to Thailand as l had a bad bowel infection a few months ago after a course of antibiotics. Unfortunately l had two recurrences of this and was worried this would happen again while l was on holiday. I am so glad l took these as my stomach was fine even though l was eating spicy Thai food a lot of the time. I will now take these on future holidays.
