Probiotics are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions e.g. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, infants with short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care. Keep out of reach of children.
Gut health supplements are not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions. If taking probiotic supplements for gut health, note that these should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. If you are taking any medications or have a serious medical condition, consult a doctor before use. Optibac supplements will not cause dependency and may be used on an ongoing basis.

Probiotics are very safe(1,2) and you can’t ‘overdose’ on them. But in general, it's best to stick to our recommended daily amount of 1-2 sachets - especially if your child takes other vitamin supplements containing Vitamin D – keep an eye on their daily Vitamin D intake. If you have any concerns, please contact our nutrition team.

Yes, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is vegetarian, and it’s also gluten and dairy-free. There is no dairy present at any stage of the manufacturing, and the live cultures strains are vegan, but the added Vitamin D3 is vegetarian.
Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is an ideal alternative to BioKult Infantis. Like BioKult Infantis, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children probiotic sachets contain added Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) fibres to maintain natural gut bacteria, and Vitamin D to support immune health. But unlike BioKult Infantis, Optibac Probiotics Babies & Children is dairy-free, vegetarian, and contains the world's most researched live cultures strain(1), Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG, extensively studied in infants and children.
