I have been using optibac for 2 months and I am very satisfied with it, it made my days easier. I will continue to use it.
Great product. I have a lactose intolerence problem. I have been taking Optibac for Every day for several years. I was initially referred to this product by a Homeopathic Chemist.
I had to come back and leave a review because these pills are amazing. I know that after a couple of days of taking these pills I will be able to live a normal life again. They are just a life saver, I recommend to anyone.

Every Day can be given to adults and children, from 4 years onwards, with the following recommendations:
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.
Gut health supplements are not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions. If taking probiotic supplements for gut health, note that these should not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. If you are 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.

Suitable for vegetarian diets. Dairy is not an ingredient. However, it is used in production. Any minute traces would not affect those with lactose intolerance.
Following the taxonomic updates advised by a global team of scientists and published in April 2020, a reclassification has been proposed for the L. rhamnosus species. The Lactobacillus rhamnosus strain in Every Day may therefore now also be known as Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11.

Some people like to take specific live cultures strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, or during the winter flu season. However, most people prefer to take a daily live cultures supplement on an ongoing basis to complement their gut bacteria. Research (1,2) to date suggests that long-term use is fine, as the body does not become dependent on the good bacteria.

If looking for alternatives to brands like Symprove, you should compare the cost, the recommended daily amount, and the quality of the strains. A high-quality supplement always lists the full strain names of the bacteria, not just the species, so you can check the supporting research. Optibac Every Day is a great alternative to Symprove and other similar brands; it out-performs most comparable products not only on price, but also on quality of the strains it contains.
The number of strains is not the most important thing to look for in a daily live cultures supplement. It is best to select a supplement containing highly researched friendly bacteria. Optibac Every Day contains the world-renowned Lactobacillus acidophilus/helveticus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11®, proven to survive stomach acidity and reach the gut alive(1)

Yes, it is safe and generally advisable to take a daily friendly bacteria supplement. Good bacteria only colonise in the gut for a few weeks and research(1,2,3) suggests that taking regular digestive supplements helps to complement the gut microbiome.
