    • This product has helped my IBS D so much. And if I have an upset tum this is what I reach for

      Shas iqbal - 8th June 2020

    • Really impressed with Saccharomyces boulardii, I find it eases an upset stomach and has really improved my gut issues. I buy the 80 capsules pack size and take 2 a day, alongside the MAX product. Great products, thanks OptiBac!

      Ben - 4th June 2020

    • Well, I thought that finding the everyday probiotic was a miracle in itself for helping with my diverticular disease, I then find miracle number 2. With my diverticular disease I can sometimes get breakthrough symptoms of diarrhoea and urgency. I used to take a high street brand of bunger uppers, the ones that melt in your mouth. Using the high street brand left me constipated for days and as anyone knows with diverticular disease, constipation is a no no as it can leave the bowel hoarding all sorts of nasty bacteria and especially in the little sacs of diverticulae and thereby leading to an infection forming and eventually leading to a course of antibiotics. I have become immune to one type of antibiotic already and therefore agree to take antibiotics with the greatest caution as I don't want to get some dreadful disease in the future and there aren't any antibiotics to cure me. Saccharomyces boulardii is a constant in my cupboard as just 1 capsule did the job of stopping the diarrhoea without harming the gut. There were no after-effects just fairly normal bowel movements again. As with the high street brand I could be constipated for up to a week! thanks again to optibac for their thorough research of their products. I actually rang the company and asked which particular product would be good for my problem. They were great and guided me to the right choice. thanks again dee x
