OptiBac 'For every day'
In 'For every day' the acidophilus and other bacteria have been selected for their specific, scientifically proven qualities such as their ability to survive to reach the gut alive. 'For every day' contains a variety of well-researched and documented strains, which are thought to settle in different parts of the small and large intestine or colon and is suitable for anyone, aged 1 year and over, seeking a general OptiBac live cultures supplement.
Each capsule provides 5 billion live microorganisms + 88mg of FOS fibres. These non-digestible FOS (Fructooligosaccharides) can act as a food source to stimulate growth of your body's live cultures, the Bifidobacteria in particular; creating what is known as a 'bifidogenic' effect.
With no added sugars, artificial flavourings or colourings, OptiBac 'For every day' provides a good alternative to sugary yoghurts and yoghurt drinks containing live cultures.
As a food supplement 'For every day' (formerly known as 'For daily wellbeing') can be given to adults and children (from 1 year & up) with the following recommendations: Take 1 capsule daily with food, preferably with breakfast, or as professionally directed.
Drink plenty of water with your course of live cultures.
For anyone unable to swallow capsules, the capsule can be opened and contents mixed with a cold meal or beverage.
OptiBac will not cause dependency, and can safely be taken on a long-term basis.
Like the rest of the OptiBac range, 'For every day' does not require refrigeration. Store out of direct sunlight.
Live cultures are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions eg. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, infants with short bowel syndrome, or to patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care.
Furthermore, pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking Saccharomyces boulardi or 'For travelling abroad'.
