    Friendly bacteria expert Farah (Natural Sciences BSc Hons) explains OptiBac 'For women'

    Who is it for?
    Highly researched friendly bacteria supplement formulated to naturally support vaginal health*. 

    Good to know:

    • Each capsule provides 2.3 billion CFU probiotic cultures, guaranteed until end of expiry.
    • Contains 2 premium strains, Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1®, which have been extensively researched in thousands of women and found to promote a healthy balance of bacteria and yeasts. 
    • High-quality bacteria, proven to reach the vagina alive.
    • World-renowned two-strain probiotic combination shown to colonise the vaginal tract, rebalancing the vaginal microflora and discouraging the growth of bad bacteria. 
    • With over 30 years of research, 'For women' is a trusted friendly bacteria supplement suitable for all stages of a woman's life, including puberty, pregnancy, as well as during and after menopause.
    • Recommended for daily use.
    • Suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and coeliacs. 
    • Free from dairy, gluten, GMOs, artificial colours and flavourings; also free from sugar, so may therefore be suitable for those with thrush, cystitis or bacterial vaginosis.
    • Easy to take on the go – no refrigeration required. Capsules can be opened and contents taken alone.
    • Works best as part of a health regime incorporating positive lifestyle factors such as a healthy, low-sugar diet to deter the growth of harmful bacteria and yeasts; drinking 6-8 glasses of water per day, and avoiding vaginal wipes, douches and soaps which can upset the natural vaginal pH.
    • Available in three pack sizes of 14, 30 or 90 capsules.

    Please note: This is a food supplement and is not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions.

    Ingredients for women supplement fact panel

    • Stabilisers: maltodextrin (natural source), microcrystalline cellulose
    • Live cultures: Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1®
    • Vegetarian capsule: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, anti-caking agent: vegetable magnesium stearate

    Each capsule guarantees 2.3 billion good bacteria.

    Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those on a gluten-free or yeast-free diet.

    Following the taxonomic updates issued by a global team of scientists and published in April 2020, which look more closely at the Lactobacillus genus, a reclassification has been advised for both the L. rhamnosus and L. reuteri species. The active ingredients for 'For women' may therefore also now be referred to as Limosilactobacillus reuteri RC-14® and Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus GR-1®.

    • After taking antibiotics every 3 months for a year l was desperate to look for help to try & sort out my Cystitis problem, & what a relief when l turned to Obtibac. My e-mail was answered immediately by Beverley (Therapist) who gave me really good advice . When taking antibiotics the Obtibac capsule for taking with these really helps & after the course l am now on For Women capsules to help keep everything clear in my gut etc. As it's early days of taking this course l can not say how things are going yet but l will definitely buy from Obtibac in the future as the help & service they give is 1st class. Many thanks Beverley & all the team at Optibac.

    • I preferred the everyday one for my gut health, this one did not really do much for me unfortunately I thought because it had good reviews it would help but it did not.
