    • Take 1 to 4 capsules depending on severity of symptoms and up to 6 capsules daily, or as professionally directed.

    • Drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
    • For anyone unable to swallow capsules, capsule can be opened and contents mixed with a cold meal or beverage.

    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.
