Friendly bacteria and gut health: your questions answered

Why might I want to take a friendly bacteria gummy for gut health?

Optibac friendly bacteria gummies contain the robust strain B. coagulans Unique IS-2, which has been studied in adults and children with IBS1,2. Both supplements also contain Calcium^ to support gut health. Some children (adults too!) simply find a gummy more convenient to take. Our Gut Health Gummies and Kids Gummies can be taken at any time of the day, with or without food, no refrigeration required.

Can you take both a daily multivitamin and a friendly bacteria gummy with added Vitamin D and Calcium?

It is perfectly safe to take Gut Health Gummies or Kids Gummies alongside other multivitamin products. The amount of Vitamin D and Calcium in our supplements are well within the general guidelines for safe daily upper limits.

What other ways are there to support gut health?

By feeding it the right stuff – like our gut health gummies – you're giving it the support it needs to keep everything running smoothly. But it's not just about what you put into your body, it's what you do with your body too; stress management, regular exercise, and getting enough sleep also play a big role in gut health. Think of it like giving your gut a big hug!
