    How many strains is best in a live cultures supplement?

    The number of strains of friendly bacteria is not the most important factor to consider when choosing a live cultures supplement. It is far more important to select a supplement containing high quality friendly bacteria strains which have been featured in numerous clinical studies. Every Day contains robust strains of the highest quality, including the world-renowned Lactobacillus acidophilus/helveticus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11®, scientifically proven to survive stomach acidity and reach the gut alive1.

    How does Every Day compare in price to other daily friendly bacteria supplements?

    Every Day is a very competitively priced friendly bacteria supplement. When comparing it with other brands, you should check the CFU billions count on each product, the daily number of capsules required, the number of capsules in each pack, and the quality of the strains. Each capsule of Every Day contains 5 billion CFU of the highest quality probiotic strains, and the dose required is just one capsule per day. A high-quality supplement always lists the full strain names of the bacteria, not just the species, so you can check the number of clinical studies they have been featured in. Based on this, Every Day out-performs many other similar strength products currently on the market, not only on price, but also on quality of the strains it contains.

    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.

    Should I take friendly bacteria every day?

    Yes, it is safe and generally advisable to take your friendly bacteria supplement daily. Good bacteria colonise in the gut for a few weeks but research1,2,3 suggests that the good bacteria strains will not persist in the gut without regular supplementation, so for this reason you might wish to take them regularly.

    Can you take live cultures long term?

    This may depend on why you are taking them: some people like to take specific strains at certain times, for example during pregnancy, when travelling abroad, or during the winter flu season. However, if you prefer general daily supplementation, then take your supplements every day. There is no current research to suggest the body becomes dependent on good bacteria, so long-term supplementation is also fine.

    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 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.

    • Good quality probiotics which have helped my stomach feel more comfortable. Quick dispatch and delivery

      Naomi - 26th August 2021

    • Always take the every day probiotics as I feel much better when I do. Just bought my new bottle and happy to find that they are now in a glass container instead of plastic, and I understand that all the Optibac products will be changed in due course.

      CW - 9th August 2021

    • Before I started taking Optibac 'Every Day', I was frequently bloated and the flatulence - my goodness! Faced with the number of products, I emailed for advice and received the most detailed, well explained reply from the Nutritional team leader, Camilla Gray, which surprised and impressed me. She recommended I start with 'One Week Flat', which I did, and by the end of the week, I noticed a difference, especially in the evening. I've now been taking the 'Every Day' for a month and I can honestly say its made a wonderful difference. Yes, there is still some flatulence, but, as she pointed out, that's normal. The main thing is, I no longer sound as if I'm the entire wind section of an orchestra! I want to say a big 'thank you' to Camilla for her advice and her follow-up email a month later (she asked first if it would be ok to email me again) to see how I was getting on. Such attentive customer service, which, sadly, is a rare thing nowadays.
