OptiBac specialise entirely in live cultures, and consider themselves experts in the field. Their strains are of the highest quality; each of which undergoes tests to ensure it is stable at room temperature, can survive stomach acidity, and can adhere to the gut wall lining. In particular they focus on taking specific strains and targeting specific health conditions - acknowledging the fact that different species and strains have different effects on the body. This is extremely important to them.

OptiBac also are completely transparent when it comes to the make-up of their products, and unlike many others brands, cite not only the microorganism's family and species, but the strain (specific type) as well. You can also follow Optibac on Twitter and Facebook.
