The OptiBac Probiotics brand was created in 2004 by three siblings and their father, all with a passion for health & wellbeing. The brand specialises entirely in live cultures and considers this to be their expertise, with a particular emphasis on how different strains (specific types of live cultures) work in different ways. The strains found within OptiBac Probiotics are of the highest quality, and each strain undergoes rigorous testing - so you can be confident you'll find a high-quality supplement for your individual needs.
OptiBac Probiotics has partnered with some of the world-leading institutes in the field and is dedicated to developing an expert range of the highest quality. The range boasts some of the most researched strains in the world. The company are completely transparent when it comes to the make-up of their products, and, unlike many others, they cite not only the microorganism's family and species but the strain as well. OptiBac Probiotics is proud to be the brand that introduced many strains to the UK, including pure Saccharomyces boulardii, Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12®, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®.
Every day, customers from all around the world review OptiBac Probiotics and comment on how much they enjoy using the products. Why not try them yourself and see what you think?
Diet & Nutrition
At OptiBac Probiotics, the customer's health comes first, and the reason that they offer supplements in capsules or sachets is that they strongly believe this is the best method by which to take live cultures. Many people associate live cultures with yoghurt drinks, which can contain very well-researched strains. But, they are often extremely high in sugar or artificial sweeteners like aspartame; a chemical thought to have toxic effects on the body. The OptiBac Probiotics range is free from unnecessary additives and boasts some of the most researched strains in the world. What's more, the range offers different types of live cultures supplements to meet individual needs, rather than taking a 'one size fits all' approach.
Corporate & Social Responsibility
OptiBac Probiotics takes their responsibility to be transparent to customers very seriously, and as such, have the policy to ensure full disclosure of all of the ingredients used in each product. This way, retailers and consumers can make informed decisions when purchasing products according to their personal needs.
Charitable Organisations & Partnerships
OptiBac Probiotics strives to support both the local community and those that are further afield. Wren Laboratories (the company behind the OptiBac Probiotics brand) gives an annual donation to Shine Charity, the association for Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus. Since 2011, the company has also donated 1% of their yearly turnover to the Aga Khan University Hospital Patient Welfare Programme in Kenya. In 2014, OptiBac Probiotics established a partnership with Womankind Worldwide, the international women’s rights charity, with donations made for every pack of OptiBac Probiotics 'For women' sold. Finally, a value that is close to their hearts is to deliver quality and value to the ever-growing live cultures industry, which, while still relatively young, is one that they are very proud to be a part of.
Live cultures, often known as friendly bacteria, refer to the microorganisms found in foods such as yoghurt, which may be beneficial for human health. The term 'live cultures' is increasingly used instead of the word "probiotics".
