How do I choose the best friendly bacteria for adults?

Choose well-researched, shelf-stable friendly bacteria supplements, guaranteed to reach the gut alive and containing strains researched for your needs. Consider if you want a high strength supplement, or one with added fibre. Read customer reviews to help you decide. For example, Optibac Every Day EXTRA is a high-strength supplement without added FOS, so is a popular choice for adults with IBS.

Should you take live cultures on a full or empty stomach?

“What time should I take friendly bacteria supplements?” and “Should I take live cultures with or without food?” are common questions, especially when taking high strength live cultures. It’s best to take your friendly bacteria at breakfast time, as this is when stomach acidity is at its most neutral. Taking it with food further helps to buffer the acid and assist the passage of the live cultures into the gut. If you miss breakfast, just take with another meal or snack.

What strength of live cultures is best?

With live cultures, ‘more’ is not always ‘better’, though some people do better on high-strength friendly bacteria supplements. But it’s still important to choose high strength supplements with strains featured in multiple gold standard clinical trials, where the research is relevant to your needs. High strength supplements like Optibac Every Day EXTRA contain the same number of billions used in supporting clinical trials - you don't want to pay for more than you need!


Stabiliser: micro-crystalline cellulose; Live cultures: Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM®Lactobacillus paracasei Lpc-37®Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07®Bifidobacterium lactis Bl-04®; vegetarian capsule: hydroxypropyl methylcellulose; anti-caking agents: vegetable magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide.

Each capsule guarantees 20 billion live cultures.

Recommended use

Every Day EXTRA can be given to adults and children, from 4 years onwards, with the following recommendations:

  • For best results take 1 capsule daily, preferably with breakfast.

  • Can be used on an ongoing basis.
  • For those unable to swallow capsules, the capsule can be opened and the contents mixed into cool food or drinks.

Keep out of reach of children.

    Excellent product

    Posted by Jane Bexon on 24th Apr 2018

    i started using probiotics some months ago to help relieve my IBS which I had been suffering from for many years. After taking the Optibac Everyday Extra, i noticed a difference within a week. My pain and stomach cramps eased and I felt more able to eat a wider variety of foods which had previously caused problems for me. I wouldn't like to be without them now, particularly when I travel. Blukoo offered them at a good price and delivery was fast and secure. All in all, I'm very happy. Thank you
