Optibac Probiotics Bifidobacteria & Fibre 10 maintains a healthy balance of good bacteria in your gut and can help to make bowel regularity an every day thing. Optibac Probiotics Bifidobacteria & Fibre 10 is a natural supplement containing a probiotic strain and a prebiotic fibre specifically selected to support normal bowel function. Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12® has been scientifically researched to help maintain regular bowel movements, and is probably the most resarched strain of the B. lactis probiotic in the world. Prebiotics, such as fructooligosaccharides, are the food source for probiotics in the body, and can act as roughage in the bowels. For maintaining regularity can be taken on a regular basis as a maintenance supplement, or as and when desired, in which case the dosage can be adjusted accordingly.

Constipation affects in particular:

  • Worldwide, more people in the West
  • More women than men
  • Infants & children
