  • How to use

    Instructions for use

    Food supplement suitable for infants (from birth), children, pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Preparation:

    • Simply mix with your child's favourite foods or drinks - sprinkle the powder over cereal, mix in with yoghurt or dissolve in a glass of water or cold milk.
    • Can be taken with formula milk - simply add to the bottle once it has cooled down to room temperature (as heat reduces the viability of natural bacteria).
    • For breastfed babies, powder can be applied to nipple or clean finger for baby to suckle.
    • Adults & children should ideally drink plenty of water during a course of live cultures.
    • Best taken with a meal, preferably with breakfast.

    Recommended amount:

    • Infants from birth to 3 years: 1 sachet per day
    • Kids 4 - 12 years: 1 to 2 sachets per day as desired
    • Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers: 1 sachet per day

    Food supplements should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. Those with serious medical conditions should consult their doctor before use. OptiBac will not cause dependency, and may be used on an ongoing basis.

    • My eldest has been taking these for a couple of years. It has definitely helped. I started taking these after my youngest son was born. He's breastfeeding. What a difference they've made! We now have a happy baby and enjoyable evenings again! I seriously can't recommend these highly enough. Thank you OptiBac!

    • It massively helped my son very quickly to eat food without discomfort. Before taking this product he suffered from regular stomach problems

    • I cannot rate these probiotics highly enough. I’ve just ordered my third monthly pack and the changes are incredible. I’ve tried other probiotics but they are nowhere near as effective. These are the only ones that have worked for us. I loved the effect that much that me and my husband now take the Everyday extra strength too! I much prefer ordering directly through Optibac rather than Amazon too. Thank you Optibac. Our whole family are benefiting so much.
