As a result of removing this ingredient, you can now see the product within the vegetarian capsule which is subject to natural variations in colour, from off white to pale yellow. The overall stability and viability of the product has not been affected in any way and we hope you like the more natural looking capsule.

Note: If you are taking particularly long-term antibiotics (a month or more), you may want to consider taking ‘For every day EXTRA Strength’ instead.

Those with serious medical conditions should consult their doctor before use. OptiBac will not cause dependency, and may be used on an ongoing basis.

SafetyLive cultures are not recommended for those with serious medical conditions e.g. those who are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the ICU, have melaena, have a central venous catheter, infants with short bowel syndrome, or patients with open wounds following major surgery; unless under a doctor's care.
