The types of natural bacteria that reside in an infant’s or child’s intestines are very different from the types found in adulthood. Bifidobacterium infantis and Bifidobacterium bifidum are the dominant and most important beneficial cultures found in healthy infants and children during their early years. Optibac for Babies and Children contains both of these bacteria, in strains which have been tested to survive stomach acidity and bile salts. This supplement contains a third type of natural bacteria, Lactobacillus acidophilus Rosell-52, which has been scientifically shown to survive stomach acidity and to reach the gut alive.
Having the right balance of bacteria in the gut goes hand in hand with healthy digestion and a strong immune system in infants and children. This is of particular importance for formula-fed babies, babies and children on antibiotics, babies delivered by Caesarean section, children with regular colds and flus, and babies and children with digestive problems such as colic, diarrhoea, constipation and lactose intolerance, as well as those with allergies and skin irritations such as eczema. Pregnant and nursing mothers can also take Optibac for Babies and Children during pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Optibac for Babies and Children is a high quality probiotic supplement that does not require refrigeration. It contains 3 scientifically researched strains of live cultures, which have been scientifically proven in children.
Infants from birth to 3 years: 1 sachet per day

Simply mix with your child’s favourite cool, non-acidic foods or drinks – try sprinkling the powder over cereal, mixing it with yogurt, or dissolve it in a glass of water or cold milk.
Can be taken with formula milk – simply add to the bottle once it has cooled down to room temperature. Do not mix with hot drinks/milk as heat kills bacteria.
