Common Questions

Should you take friendly bacteria in pregnancy?

Expectant mums may worry whether it’s safe to take live cultures during pregnancy, especially as some other natural health supplements are not recommended at this time. However, Optibac Pregnancy contains friendly bacteria strains which have been clinically trialled in pregnant and breastfeeding mothers and shown to be safe, so it’s particularly suitable for use in pregnancy and early motherhood.

How does this supplement differ to other live cultures supplements for pregnancy?

Optibac Pregnancy contains specific strains of friendly bacteria which have extensive research to support their use all the way from conception, throughout pregnancy and into early motherhood. Other brands often use the same strains of live cultures in all of their supplements, and simply add other ingredients to differentiate how they can be used. Unlike other brands, Optibac Pregnancy contains live cultures which have been researched during pregnancy, so there’s no need for any added ingredients. However, should you wish to take other prenatal supplements and vitamins, then it is fine to take your Pregnancy supplement alongside these.

What are FOS fibres?

FOS stands for Fructo-oligosaccharides and is a type of non-digestible carbohydrate. This means that it is not able to be broken down in the small intestines, and instead enters the large intestine where it is fermented by the good bacteria living there.
