Every single person can benefit from taking a probiotic supplement, which can provide relief from digestive issues, support skin conditions like eczema and allergies, and boost the immune system.

South African products promoting intense probiotic support, on average, contain only 9 strains; OptiFlora+ on the other hand surpasses this by featuring 18 billion CFUs of 15 probiotic strains.

Most people have less than optimal digestive systems, leading to poor absorption of nutrients. The digestive system contains flora and enzymes that break down and absorb nutrients from food. Taking probiotics will ensure that the maximum nutrition is extracted from food and supplements and allows the digestive system to heal itself.

OptiFlora provides a scientifically-formulated probiotic designed to help maintain the healthy balance of intestinal flora, especially if you're taking antibiotics that can disturb this balance. This leads to improved digestive health and better overall well-being.

BENEFITS:

  • Improves bowel function and digestion
  • Promotes the absorption of nutrients
  • Boosts your immune system by helping to control and destroy potentially disease causing organisms
  • Our modern eating habits lead to a deficiency in good bacteria in the gut
  • Essential for overall health and wellbeing

7 SIGNS OF GUT IMBALANCE:

  • Constipation, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), bloating, belching, indigestion, diarrhoea, cramps
  • Food allergies or intolerances
  • Skin conditions like acne or eczema
  • Immune system deficiencies
  • Undesirable changes in bowel movements
  • Thrush causing candida and other fungal infections
  • Taking antibiotics, contraceptive pills and hormone replacement therapy (HRT)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Why do we need probiotics?

A: New research is published daily on the numerous benefits of probiotics, from better digestion to improved brain function and immune system. The constant sanitising, stress and infections that we are exposed to, destroy our friendly bacteria and if we do not replace them we leave the door open for all the bad bacteria. In some cases, covid and/or the vaccination could affect the good gut bacteria.

Q: How long after taking it will I experience a change?

A: Depending on the level of depletion, it can take a month before your system settles to a new normal.

Q: Are there side-effects?

A: Some people may experience bloating or diarrhoea because their digestive system is not used to good bacteria. This normally takes ten to fourteen days to settle.

Q: Is there interaction with medication?

A: There are no known interactions with medication. However, it may improve the condition for which you are being treated.

Q: When is best time to take probiotics?

A: Probiotics are most effective when they have been taken on an empty stomach to make sure the good bacteria make it to the gut as quickly as possible. The best time to take a probiotic is either first thing in the morning before eating breakfast or before going to sleep at night.

Q: Why does it not contain a prebiotic?

A: The capsule space occupied by a prebiotic can be used better with extra probiotic strains. By eating a small apple or banana before taking the capsule is equal to a prebiotic.

Q: Can I take it with antibiotics?

A: Yes, in fact we suggest that you do. Antibiotics can be effective in treating bad bacteria, but it also wipes out good bacteria. Taking probiotics like OptiFlora+ is beneficial to replenish good bacteria in the gut. Take probiotics at least 1 hour after antibiotics.
