    Customer Questions

    All questions answered by probiotic experts Dr Kate Stephens PhD (Food and Microbial Sciences) BSc(Hons) Medical Microbiology and Kerry Beeson BSc (Nut. Med.) Nutritional Therapist.

    How do I choose the best adult gummies?

    Gummies supplements should be made from natural ingredients, with no artificial ingredients or added sugars. Friendly bacteria gummies should contain a highly researched strain of live cultures which is also able to withstand the heat required to manufacture gummy supplements. Optibac Adult Gummies contain Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2, a highly researched strain of Bacillus featured in multiple gold-standard clinical trials 1,2. These all-natural gummies are made with real fruit purees and absolutely no added sugars, artificial sweeteners, or flavours. They are also vegan, and free from gluten and dairy.  Oh, and they taste absolutely delicious!

    What is the difference between gummies vs capsules or powder?

    Because they taste like yummy ‘sweets’, people often wonder if gummies are as good as capsules or powders. However, if you purchase high-quality supplements from a trusted company, then all formats should be of equal quality, so it’s really down to personal preference which you choose.

    In terms of ingredients, capsules and powder products usually contain strains of Lactobacilli or Bifidobacteria, but gummy supplements are heated during manufacture so it’s important that they contain strains which are more resilient to moisture, acid, and heat4,5, like the highly researched Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2 in Optibac Adult Gummies. 

    With added fibre, calcium, vitamin D, and zinc, the Adult Gummies supplement is designed for all-round digestive and immune support; however, if you have a particular health condition, you may also like to consider a supplement containing live cultures strains which have been researched for that condition.

    Can I take gummies if I am on a weight loss diet?

    When you’re counting every calorie, it’s important to make sure that every calorie counts. Optibac Adult Gummies are completely natural with no added sugar, and bursting with friendly bacteria, fruit, vitamins, and fibre. At less than 8 calories each, you can easily make room for them in any calorie-controlled diet, safe in the knowledge that they contain less than a third of a teaspoon of natural fruit sugar, and every little bit is healthy! So, whether you’re trying to lose weight, tone up, or gain weight, they’re a very positive addition to anyone’s diet.

    How and when should I take friendly bacteria gummies? 

    The great news is that you can take Optibac Adult Gummies whenever it suits you. They don’t require refrigeration and can be taken with or without food. With a combination of friendly bacteria, natural fibre, calcium, zinc and vitamin D3, you can take these adult gummy vitamins whenever you want to support digestion and immunity, or daily on an ongoing basis. Taking friendly bacteria supplements has never been easier!

    How many Adult Gummies should I take?  

    We recommend taking one of our Adult Gummies per day but as they’re so yummy you may be tempted to take more!  If you do sneak an extra gummy occasionally, don’t worry - it’s not thought to be possible to ‘overdose’ on friendly bacteria and the added ingredients vitamin D, zinc, and calcium have safe upper limits higher than the levels included in Optibac Adult Gummies3. But it’s best to stick to the recommended daily amount, especially if you take several different vitamin and mineral supplements, and keep an eye on your daily vitamin and mineral supplement intake. Our team of nutritional therapists are always on hand to advise if you have any concerns.

    Safety

    Live cultures 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.

    This is a food supplement and is not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions. Probiotic supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, 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.

    • Really fruity taste and apart from the friendly bacteria they contain vit D and zinc so saves me buying any extra tablets. Started taking half a gummie to ease my way on to them. Really really pleased.

      Wendy - 23rd May 2022

    • Fantastic gummies, very tasty and easy to take. Ideal for me, as I am having problem with swallowing bigger pills. I trust that ingredients are top quality and easily absorbed by our body. I wish all my vitamins are gummies, thank you Nadia for recommending it to me. I understand that the company is ecologically orientationed, it is always a plus.

      Alicja L - 1st April 2022

    • These are delicious! Really nice flavour and texture, feels like a little treat every morning even though they're a vitamin/probiotic supplement. And so much easier than having to swallow a massive tablet! Thank you Kerry for the recommendation, I'm paying it forward and recommending them to anyone reading this.
