My husband and I took these before and during a recent trip trip to India and suffered no stomach problems. Highly recommended
An excellent product. My partner and I took these before, during and after our holiday to Egypt and we stayed well with no stomach upsets at all. I would recommend taking these if you want to stay well on your travels
We used OptiBac Probiotics For Travelling Abroad for a 3 month trip around the world, having been ill on previous trips. It was brilliant!! we were obviously careful especially with water and ice but the trip included India, thailand, vietnam and cambodia eating in markets and even on the street. We only felt slightly unwell on one day and not enough to ruin a few days of the holiday, just 1 morning. I cannot recommend it enough, its small price to pay. Just about to buy some more for our next trip, Highly recommended!
After 4 previous holidays with short but annoying tummy upsets.. I saw this product and thought Id give it a try (whilst still buying the very effective, tried and tested Optibac treatment) After 2 weeks of north African food and drinks I can confirm that I neednt have bothered buyng the treatment! Whether I was lucky (unlike several other guests at the same hotel) of whether this preventative medication really is that good, Ill never know but I will most definately be using this again for every holiday trip abroad.
Was travelling all around Cuba for nearly 3 weeks so ate at lots of different places. Both my travelling companions had stomach problems at different times, but I was absolutely fine, so am sure they worked. I will definitely take them next time I am travelling.
