For people who are taking antibiotics (e.g. amoxicillin, penicillin, tetracycline, doxycycline), or who have recently finished an antibiotic course, the strains of natural bacteria in this supplement are especially selected for their suitability and safety. These two high quality strains of natural bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52 and Lactobacillus rhamnosus Rosell-11, have been extremely well-researched, and are scientifically proven to survive to reach the gut alive, even during a course of antibiotics.

Antibiotics do not distinguish between friendly and harmful bacteria and are therefore thought to kill off much of the natural bacteria in the gut; this may often lead to side effects such as thrush, diarrhoea, or poor immunity.

Directions

Can be given to adults and children (from 1 year and over) with the following recommendations:

  • Take one capsule daily with breakfast*, until antibiotics course is finished, and preferably for one week after.
  • Continue taking until pack is completed and add a second pack if the antibiotic treatment lasts more than one week.
  • OptiBac Probiotics may be used on an ongoing basis.
  • Can be taken at the same time as antibiotics - this product has been clinically trialled alongside antibiotics and found to reach the gut alive.

Note: Any customers taking particularly long-term and/or high strength antibiotics may want to consider taking OptiBac Probiotics For every day EXTRA Strength instead. Also, for anyone unable to swallow capsules, the contents of the capsule can be mixed with a cold meal or beverage.

Safety

It is not recommended to give live cultures to patients who: are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the Intensive Care Unit, have blood in the stool, have central venous catheters; or to post-surgical patients with open wounds, or infants with short bowel syndrome; unless under a doctor's care.

Store out of direct sunlight.
