Bifidobacteria & fibre (For maintaining regularity) is a natural supplement containing carefully selected microorganisms and fibres. Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® has seen extensive scientific and clinical research, and is thought to be the world's most researched strain of the entire family of Bifidobacteria.
What's more this high quality strain is scientifically proven to survive stomach acidity and biliary salts to reach the gut alive. The ingredient Fructooligosaccharide (FOS), makes this product naturally high in fibre. FOS is a soluble fibre which may act as a food source for the body's natural bacteria, and as roughage in the bowels.
OptiBac Probiotics 'Bifidobacteria & fibre' can be taken once a day for ongoing maintenance; or as and when desired, in which case we recommend taking up to 4 sachets a day.
Thanks to the high amount of natural fibre in this supplement, it may be especially suitable for those with constipation.
Constipation affects in particular:
More women than men
Some people whilst travelling
Infants & children
