For anyone who tends to suffer from poor immune health, and who is looking for a daily probiotic supplement with vitamin C to help support immune function and digestive health*.
I genuinely feel my stomach is more settled and less bloated after about 2 weeks. I’m guessing if my gut feels fine something is right which will lead to better health.
A huge thank you to OptiBac Advisor and Nutritionist Claire Foss for all her support and guidance around my digestive health and OptiBac products. Very happy to say that the gentleness of OptiBac Immunity is working well after a few weeks after many other brands did not agree my digestive system. The secret is trying different products, give them a few weeks each. I know you're eager to reduce your symptoms, but issues like this can take some time to resolve... keep going, and thanks again to Claire for her help.
My wife bought this for us last year and we've both been taking it ever since. So far so good - we're feeling well, good energy and regular in the gut health department!
Immune Support can be given to adults and children, from 1 year onwards, with the following recommendations:
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, short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care. Keep out of reach of children.

Yes! It’s not possible to overdose on probiotics for immune support as your gut naturally contains trillions of friendly bacteria. Live cultures have been researched for decades, and daily use is both safe and recommended, without risk of dependency or overdose (1,2,3).

Various factors affect immune function, including cold weather or stress, but you can do things to help your immune system. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, limit alcohol intake, get a good night’s sleep, exercise daily, and wash your hands properly. As 70% of our immune system is in the gut, consider taking probiotics for immune support during the winter cold and flu season. Optibac Probiotics Immune Support offers all-round gut and immune support.
