What makes Bifido & Fibre unique?

Bifido & Fibre is a safe, gentle supplement, suitable for use by everyone over the age of 1 year including children1, pregnant women2, and older people3.  Bifido & Fibre contains 25 billion CFU of the friendly bacteria strain Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12®, an extensively researched strain proven to reach the gut alive4. In fact, this strain of friendly bacteria is thought to be the most highly researched strain in the entire Bifidobacteria family! It has been extensively researched in numerous clinical trials, including one of the largest clinical trials ever conducted on any friendly bacteria strain, where it was researched in 1,200 people5. In Bifido & Fibre, this strain is offered in a unique combination with 4g of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), a natural source of fibre.

How many sachets should I take a day?

The most appropriate way to take Bifido & Fibre can vary from person to person, so may require some initial ‘trial and error’. It is recommended to start with one sachet a day and see how you get on. The number of sachets taken can be increased (one sachet at a time), up to a maximum of 4 sachets per day spread over the course of the day. This supplement can be taken with or without food and many people like to take a sachet with each meal, and one before bedtime, though you can see what suits you best.

If you decide to take a higher number of sachets initially, you may be able to reduce after just a week or two to just 1 or 2 sachets each day. Equally, it’s fine to use the supplement on an ad hoc basis as desired, or to take 1-4 sachets per day on an ongoing basis.

Is it ok to take friendly bacteria supplements every day?

Friendly bacteria supplements are generally considered very safe to take on a daily basis1. They are natural supplements and not a medication. Furthermore, the specific strain of bacteria in Bifido & Fibre (Bifidobacterium lactis BB-12®) carries no risk of dependency and does not cause the bowel to become ‘lazy’.
