One week flat
OptiBac Probiotics 'One week flat' has been created especially for those wishing to take a short-term course of good bacteria. It contains strains such as Lactobacillus casei Rosell-215, and is advised to be taken consecutively for 7 days. Suggested for daily use, each sachet provides 5 billion live microorganisms, guaranteed until end of expiry. The strains within 'One week flat', such as L. casei Rosell-215, are well-researched and proven to survive to reach the gut alive. This supplement is also gluten free and so may be suitable for those who suffer with bloating. Each pack contains seven sachets. It is important to note that this supplement, unlike a small amount of live cultures products, does not require refrigeration, due to improvements in freeze drying techniques and the strains being naturally robust and able to survive harsher conditions. All OptiBac Probiotics strains are thoroughly researched and documented, so you can be confident you're getting a high quality supplement, which is proven to reach the gut alive.

Diet & Nutrition
At OptiBac Probiotics, the customer's health comes first, and the reason that they offer supplements in capsules or sachets is that they strongly believe this is the best method by which to take live cultures. Many people associate live cultures with yoghurt drinks, which can contain very well-researched strains. But, they are often extremely high in sugar or artificial sweeteners like aspartame; a chemical thought to have toxic effects on the body. The OptiBac Probiotics range is free from unnecessary additives, and boasts some of the most researched strains in the world. What's more, the range offers different types of live cultures supplements to meet individual needs, rather than taking a 'one size fits all' approach.
Corporate & Social Responsibility
OptiBac Probiotics takes their responsibility to be transparent to customers very seriously, and as such have a policy to ensure full disclosure of all of the ingredients used in each product. This way, retailers and consumers can make informed decisions when purchasing products according to their personal needs.
Charitable Organisations & Partnerships
OptiBac Probiotics strives to support both the local community and those that are further afield. Wren Laboratories (the company behind the OptiBac Probiotics brand) gives an annual donation to Shine Charity, the association for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus. Since 2011, the company has also donated 1% of their yearly turnover to the Aga Khan University Hospital Patient Welfare Programme in Kenya. In 2014, OptiBac Probiotics established a partnership with Womankind Worldwide, the international women’s rights charity, with donations made for every pack of OptiBac Probiotics 'For women' sold. Finally, a value that is close to their hearts is to deliver quality and value to the ever-growing live cultures industry, which, while still relatively young, is one that they are very proud to be a part of.
Do not exceed recommended daily dosage. 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 Probiotics may be used on an ongoing basis and can safely be used on either an occasional or daily basis, depending on reasons for use.
Adults and children (four years and over): take one sachet daily with food, preferably with breakfast when stomach acidity is at its most neutral. Shake the sachet, then slowly sprinkle contents into a glass of water and vigorously swirl to dissolve fully. Do not use a spoon as this may cause the sachet contents to clump. Continue to take for seven consecutive days, or as professionally directed.
For best results:
- Pour an inch of water into a tall glass, leaving plenty of room for swirling.
- Shake the sachet well before gently sprinkling in the powder.
- Leave powder to dissolve naturally.
- Vigorously swirl the water around in the glass.
- Drink, wait, and enjoy the benefits
