Health Professionals

At Optibac we recognise the important work that Health Professionals do. We have teams dedicated to providing Health Care Professionals (HCP) and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners with the tools needed to recommend and educate on live cultures and Optibac products.

Latest CAM webinar - The Effects of Ageing on the Microbiome

Lissa Leader hosted a CPD accredited webinar in association with IHCAN magazine on 21st March.

As we grow older, our microbiome changes and this may have an impact on digestive health, intimate health, and immune function. During this webinar, we will assess whether the microbiome might hold a key to the ageing process, and we will also explore how probiotics could play a part in a holistic support protocol to help optimise the microbiome of older people.
