Probiotics are the good type of bacteria that help crowd out the harmful bacteria in order to keep you healthy. This is important because more than 70 percent of your immune defenses can be found in your digestive tract.
OptiBac Probiotics specialise entirely in probiotics, and in particular we use specific probiotic strains to target specific health conditions. Recognising that different types of probiotics can have different beneficial effects on the body, we aim to offer each of our customers a specific probiotic formula in order to support your individual health needs.
OptiBac Probiotics Do not require refrigeration.
Your health comes first. The reason we make probiotic supplements in capsules or sachets is that we strongly believe this to be the most effective and healthy way to take your probiotics. Many probiotic yoghurt drinks have extremely high doses of sugar which can be damaging to the health. Light versions of these drinks often contain artificial sweeteners such as aspartame, a chemical believed by many to have toxic effects on the human body.
All OptiBac Probiotics are free from artificial sweeteners and nasty additives.
Our probiotic strains endure rigorous tests to ensure their survival through the stomach acidity and biliary salts, as well as to ensure their ability to adhere to the epithelial cells in the gut wall lining. These factors are absolutely vital in a trustworthy probiotic.
Our probiotics are cultured on an organic dairy base; the livestock were reared without the routine use of antibiotics, with no use of growth hormones, and with no genetic modification. Furthermore, the prebiotic Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) that we use in many of our products is derived from organic chicory root. The natural plant extracts in For daily immunity (Grape Seed Extract, Green Tea Extract, and Pine Bark Extract) are also all of organic standard.
Last but not least, in terms of your health, we appreciate that different people take probiotics for different reasons. So if you are looking for probiotic support For bowel calm and your partner is looking for probiotics For a flat stomach, we offer each of you a condition-specific combination of probiotic strains.
At OptiBac Probiotics we strive to use the minimum amount of packaging possible. When rebranding from DTECTA Probiotics we discontinued our use of the outer trays that covered our products, replacing them for a much smaller paper sleeve. In April 2008 we increased the potency and reduced the number of capsules in For travelling abroad, allowing us to reduce the number of blister packs per product by 30%. In less than nine months this saved the production of over 5,000 blister packs – enough to cover an area of 2.5km2 !
