Great for anyone looking to buy a friendly bacteria supplement with FOS for natural fibre.
FOS may initially result in flatulence in some people. These effects are temporary and should stop as the body adjusts. If effects continue for 3-4 days, consider reducing the dosage.

I discovered these at the Pregnancy & Baby fair in Dublin and I can’t rate them highly enough. This supplement has changed my life! I couldn't recommend it more.
I began using Optibac Bifido & Fibre a couple months ago. The results have been unlike anything I have used in the past. I have struggled with sluggish bowels for over a decade. Increasing my fiber intake just usually results in more pain and harder stools, despite consuming nearly a gallon of fluid per day. Since taking Optibac Bifido & Fibre, I am experiencing a more definite urge to go to the toilet, better stool consistency, and more complete evacuation. At the beginning, I also experienced some gas, but I took this as a good sign that real work was being done in my intestines. I highly recommend this product to anyone that does not respond to the usual "fiber and fluids" recommendation.
I’ve reword everything, diet changes, EVERYTHING. Nothing helped. I finally decided to try a probiotic. I put it off bc i hate taking pills but i found this powder one from optibac and was so excited. I mix it with apple juice and take it everyday. It’s been 2 months and now i FINALLY have a bowel movement EVERY DAY! I hardly leave reviews but this is the first and only product that has helped. Saying I’m ecstatic is an understatement. I’be been telling everyone i can about this miracle product 🤍

Optibac Bifido & Fibre can be taken with or without food, on an occasional or ongoing daily basis. Daily intake can vary for each person, depending on how you respond or if you're taking fibre in other supplements for constipation. Start with one sachet a day and increase (a sachet at a time), up to a maximum of 4 sachets, spread over the day.
Friendly bacteria supplements are natural - they are not medications and are considered safe to take on a daily basis with very few exceptions*. Live cultures carry no risk of dependency and do not cause the bowel to become ‘lazy’.
