Tastes really good so that I remember to take them each day.
These taste absolutely incredible, almost as good as Percy Pigs minus all the sugar! As a vegetarian it’s rare to find gummies that are gelatin free and have no added sugars. High fives to everyone at Optibac for creating a tasty vegan supplement!
Really fruity taste and apart from the friendly bacteria they contain vit D and zinc so saves me buying any extra tablets. Started taking half a gummie to ease my way on to them. Really really pleased.
Store in a cool, dry place below 25°C and out of direct sunlight.

To create a gummy supplement, heat is needed. Most friendly bacteria strains would be destroyed if heat is applied. Bacillus coagulans Unique IS-2, the friendly bacteria strain chosen for these gut health gummies is heat-resistant and therefore ideal to be developed into a delicious gummy1,2. Our other supplements contains strains that aren't heat-resistant and therefore are found in capsules or powder format.
