OptiBac Probiotics For Your Cholesterol
Many In Stock
Cholesterol is a big worry for many of us, especially as we grow older. It seems that every day there is a new magic cure for cholesterol or a new food you shouldn’t be eating.
We don’t know about magic cures, but we do know that Optibac Probiotics For Your Cholesterol has undergone huge amounts of research and clinical trials to prove that its ingredients help maintain normal levels of cholesterol.
Each daily dose contains 1.2 billion ‘AB-life’ live cultures (made up of three different strains) as well as Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids. The strains of bacteria used in these capsules are the first strains available in the UK that are proven to help lower cholesterol by both reducing the absorption of cholesterol from the diet, and reducing the production of cholesterol in the liver.
Please bear in mind that these capsules are not suitable for vegetarians.
As a food supplement 'For your cholesterol' can be taken with the following recommendations: - Take one hard capsule and one soft capsule every day. - Take with food, preferably with breakfast.
- For best results, take daily for at least three months.
- May be used on an ongoing basis.
- Safe to take alongside statins or other cholesterol lowering medication.
Note: The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of alpha-linolenic acid as part of a balanced diet. Safety It is not recommended to give live cultures to patients who: are severely immunosuppressed, have pancreatitis, are in the Intensive Care Unit, have blood in the stool, have central venous catheters; or to post-surgical patients with open wounds, or infants with short bowel syndrome; unless under a doctor's care.

Lost or Delayed Packages (Standard Post)
99% of the time, standard post is very effective and efficient. In the event that a customer reports a package undelivered after the estimated time of delivery , we then aim to track the delayed or missing package with a “missing parcel investigation". This will ensure we find out where exactly the item is e.g. if it's been delivered and where to. The system has proven very effective for us. Please note: we cannot send out a repeat order/refund until we retrieve the missing item.
Note: The company will not be responsible for missing items should you give postal instruction other than your own address such as "if not in, leave in rubbish bin at back of house" or "leave in neighbour's porch" or any instructions of such nature.
Delayed Packages could be due to a slow transit country. This can vary according to customs and post office policies in each country. In our experience, the following countries can take longer than 12-26 days: Germany, Italy, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Middle Eastern countries, South Africa, India and Pakistan.
We cannot file a missing parcel claim until this time period has passed as your parcel may still be in transit.
Returned Packages as a result of “Not being picked up” or “Not possible to deliver to customer”.
Should we receive a parcel which has been undelivered and returned to us, we will notify you. In this instance, payment will be required to resend the item. Should you not wish for the item to be resent, credit or a refund will be issued less original shipping charges.
