What to expect when taking Bimuno

Day 1-3 When you take Bimuno for the first time, it will take 3 days to start feeding your bifidobacteria.

Day 4-7 You might feel some slight gurgling in your tummy. This is a good sign as it means Bimuno is beginning to reset your microbiota (the bacteria in your gut).

Day 8-14 Your microbiota has now changed and Bimuno is feeding and nurturing your beneficial bacteria.

Don’t stop after 14 days. Make Bimuno part of your daily routine and continue to feed your good gut bacteria.

About Bimuno®

  • What is Bimuno?

    Bimuno is a unique daily fibre supplement containing Galactooligosaccharides (GOS). GOS works by selectively increasing the level of bifidobacteria and other health-promoting bacteria found in the gut.

  • What does Bimuno do?

    Bimuno naturally feeds and increases the friendly bacteria in your gut; for optimal benefit, it reaches the lower gut intact, with significant increases of friendly bacteria in just 7 days. Formulated with the knowledge that more than 60% of the immune system is in the gut, it works with the natural systems in the body to improve immune function and influence general health and wellbeing.

  • Is Bimuno a medicine?

    No. Bimuno is a food supplement that works naturally in the gut

  • How do I take Bimuno?

    Bimuno® DAILY - Take 1 sachet of powder per day, dissolved in tea, coffee, juice or other drink, or sprinkled over food. If you have a sensitive stomach, take 1/2 a sachet for 7-10 days and if well tolerated increase to 1 sachet per day.

    Bimuno® IBAID - Take 2 pastilles, chewing each one separately and thoroughly before swallowing. For best results, take the two pastilles at the same time of day.

    Bimuno® TRAVELAID - Bimuno® TRAVELAID pastilles offer a convenient way of taking Bimuno when travelling. Take 3 pastilles daily, starting 7 days before you travel and continuing whilst you are away. For best results, take the 3 pastilles at the same time of day.

    Bimuno can be taken any time of the day, as part of your daily routine. For maximum benefit, try to take it around the same time every day.

  • How often should I take Bimuno?

    The majority of our customers take Bimuno everyday.

  • What should I expect when taking Bimuno for the first time?

    When you take Bimuno for the first time, it will take 3 days to start feeding your bifidobacteria.

    Days 8-14: Your microbiome is now changed and Bimuno is feeding and nurturing your beneficial bacteria

    Published studies have shown that, with daily use, the majority of Bimuno users experience an increase in their gut bifidobacteria within 7 days, although individual responses may vary.

    All Bimuno products contain the unique active ingredient Galactooligosaccharides (GOS).

    Bimuno® DAILY is a powder, which comes in an easy to use sachet. Pour one sachet into your tea, coffee, juice or other drink, or sprinkle it over food every day.

    Bimuno® IBAID is a chewable pastille. A daily dose of IBAID (2 pastilles) contains a lower dose than Bimuno DAILY and is recommended if you have sensitive stomach.

    Bimuno® TRAVELAID is a chewable pastille. It is recommended that you take 3 pastilles daily, starting 7 days before you travel and that you continue taking it whilst you are away.

  • Can I take Bimuno with a Probiotic?

    Yes, you can take Bimuno with probiotic supplements and yoghurts.

  • Can I take Bimuno if I am on a low FODMAP diet?

  • Can I take Bimuno with any other prescribed medicine?

    Bimuno is a food supplement and not a medicine. On the basis of our scientific knowledge there should be no effect on other medications taken alongside Bimuno.
    However, if you are uncertain, you should consult with your doctor or other healthcare practitioner before starting to take Bimuno.

    We also have an information sheet to share with your doctor or other healthcare professional which tells them more about Bimuno. Click here.

  • When I try to go into the section ‘For HCPs’, something pops up and says that this area is only for professionals. Why is this?

    We have created a section on our website where we hold information about clinical studies and also some technical data about the product. This section of the website is for Healthcare Professionals only.

  • Why have you changed the packaging on Bimuno?

    We had the previous packaging on the market for many years and we thought it was about time we updated our look.

    We think the new design looks more modern and stands out better on the shelf.

  • Is Bimuno suitable to take if I have a pre-existing medical condition?

    Bimuno is generally regarded as safe to take even if you have existing medical conditions.  However, we do recommend that you first talk to your healthcare practitioner regarding any specific health conditions that you may have so they can advise you whether it is safe for you to take Bimuno.

  • Can I take Bimuno if I suffer from Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)?

    There are currently no scientific studies on the safety and efficacy of Bimuno in people with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) and therefore we cannot comment on its use in this condition.

    However, from the scientific literature there is no evidence to suggest that it is harmful to take products similar to Bimuno with other treatments for SIBO.  For this reason, we would suggest that you discuss this with your healthcare practitioner before taking Bimuno.

  • Can I take Bimuno if I suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)?

    Yes, Bimuno is safe to take if you are suffering from IBS.

    However, due to the condition itself, you may find you have a more sensitive stomach and so should take either the full daily dose of Bimuno® IBAID (i.e. 2 pastilles) or half a sachet of Bimuno® DAILY.

    If you are unsure, you should speak to your doctor or other healthcare practitioner for further advice.

    We also have an information sheet to share with your doctor or other healthcare professional which tells them more about Bimuno. Click here.

  • Can Bimuno help with sleep?

    The BBC programme “The Truth About Sleep” showed the impact on Dr Mosley of consuming Bimuno® DAILY.

    The programme explained the impact of improving fibre intake and the positive effect that this has on the good bacteria in your gut and inferred that this may improve sleep patterns.

    In the programme Dr Mosley discussed how his sleep patterns had improved whilst taking Bimuno in the evening before going to sleep. It should be noted that no formal clinical investigations have been conducted to assess the impact of Bimuno on sleep patterns.

  • Will Bimuno interfere with chronic medication?
