Optibac Probiotics for Your Child's Health 30 Sachets are specially formulated for pregnant women, nursing mothers, infants and children with a unique probiotic and prebiotic blend. The sachets are completely free from sugars, artificial flavours and colourings and they are also gluten free.
OptiBac Probiotics specialise entirely in using live cultures and only use strains of the highest quality, with extensive research behind them. The types of natural bacteria that live in an infant's or child's intestines are completely different from those that are found in adults which is why this Probiotic has been developed.
Can easily be mixed with your child's favourite foods or drinks and can be taken with formula milk when it is at room temperature, but not when warmed as heat may affect the natural bacteria. For breastfed babies, powder can be applied to nipple or using a clean finger for baby to suckle.
Infants from birth to 12 months: one sachet per day.
Children 12 months and above: one to two sachets per day, as desired.
Pregnant and nursing mothers: one sachet per day.
Adults & children should ideally drink plenty of water during a course of live cultures. Best taken with a meal, preferably with breakfast.
OptiBac Probiotics will not cause dependency, and can safely be taken on an ongoing basis.
