If you prefer to take the contents of your Optibac Probiotics capsules directly into your mouth or mix them into cool, non-acidic food and drink, you can do so. The probiotic bacteria’s vitality will not be affected. probioticseverything.comprobiotic capsule probiotic capsule
Probiotics are very much alive. They can be subject to damage from specific conditions like living creatures, including extremes of heat and pH. (e.g. how acidic or alkaline an environment is).
People are sometimes concerned that probiotic strains in supplements would not survive their passage through the hostile stomach environment because of this understanding. To safeguard the delicate germs inside, several supplement makers employ enteric coating on their capsules. Enteric coating is a form of coating applied to capsules that keeps them from dissolving in the stomach, safeguarding the probiotic capsule’s contents from stomach acids. probioticseverything.com probiotic capsule
Without their capsule, how do Optibac probiotic bacteria survive?
Our strains have been shown to survive all but the most extreme acidic environments, therefore Optibac probiotics capsules do not require an enteric coating. Our probiotic bacteria are tested without any protective capsule in our in vitro testing (lab tests) to guarantee that they are hardy enough to make the voyage through the stomach acid into the intestines. This is why we advocate taking our products first thing in the morning, with or shortly after breakfast, when stomach acid is at its weakest, posing even less of a hurdle to our ‘tough’ little microorganisms. probioticseverything.comprobiotic capsule probiotic capsule
Because the probiotic capsule does not protect the friendly bacteria in our range from stomach acid, it is absolutely safe to open any of our capsule probiotics and pour the contents directly into the mouth or into food or drink products (so long as these are not too hot, or acidic like fruit juice). probioticseverything.comprobiotic capsule
In fact, three of our fifteen items are sachets, which can be consumed on their own or mixed with cold milk or water. This shows that we don’t need any sophisticated protective coatings on our probiotic caps to assure a viable product and that our live probiotics make it to the intestines alive. As a result, Optibac supplements are ideal for anyone who has trouble swallowing probiotics in capsules, as they can take our full selection without difficulty. probioticseverything.comprobiotic capsule probiotic capsule
