    • With over 30 years of research, 'For women' is a trusted friendly bacteria supplement especially for the female intimate flora.
    • Alongside taking this product, please also consider lifestyle factors such as diet i.e. reducing your intake of sugar which can feed harmful bacteria and yeasts, increasing your water intake and avoiding wipes, douches and soaps in the intimate area which can upset the natural vaginal pH.

    Please note: This is a food supplement and is not intended to prevent, treat or diagnose any medical conditions.

    Instructions for use

    • Take 1 or 2 capsules daily as desired or as professionally directed.
    • For ongoing use 1 capsule a day may suffice.
    • Take with food, preferably with breakfast.

    • 'For women' can safely be taken alongside other supplements in the OptiBac range.

    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 supplements will not cause dependency and may be used on an ongoing basis.

    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.

    Ingredients

    • Stabilisers: maltodextrin (natural source), microcrystalline cellulose
    • Live cultures: Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1®
    • Vegetarian capsule: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, anti-caking agent: vegetable magnesium stearate

    Each capsule guarantees 2.3 billion good bacteria.

    Suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those on a gluten-free or yeast-free diet.

    Following the taxonomic updates issued by a global team of scientists and published in April 2020, which look more closely at the Lactobacillus genus, a reclassification has been advised for both the L. rhamnosus and L. reuteri species. The active ingredients for 'For women' may therefore also now be referred to as Limosilactobacillus reuteri RC-14® and Lacticaseibacillus rhamnosus GR-1®.

      Michelle - 17th September 2020

    • After taking antibiotics every 3 months for a year, l was desperate to look for help & what a relief when l turned to OptiBac. My e-mail was answered immediately by Beverley (Therapist) who gave me really good advice. When taking antibiotics, the OptiBac capsule for taking with these really helps & after the course l am now on For Women capsules to help keep everything clear in my gut etc. As its early days of taking this course l cannot say how things are going yet but l will definitely buy from OptiBac in the future as the help & service they give is 1st class. Many thanks Beverley & all the team at OptiBac.

    • I preferred the everyday one for my gut health, this one did not really do much for me unfortunately I thought because it had good reviews it would help but it did not.
