- Clinically studied strain for a healthy vaginal microbiome
- Probiotic strains support the healthy growth of normal vaginal flora as well as resistance to dysbiosis and infection
- Contains 10 specific strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium and a minimum of 25 billion CFUs per single vegetarian capsule (85 billion at the date of manufacture)
- One capsule per day, oral dosing
Women’s Health Probiotic provides a unique combination of multi-species probiotics that are clinically studied strains to support a healthy vaginal microbiome as well as gastrointestinal health. Comprised of 10 strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium, one capsule per day provides a clinically effective dose of 25 billion CFUs. These probiotic species support a healthy vaginal ecosystem through multiple mechanisms, including the modulation of local immunity and the production of lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and bacteriocins, compounds with antimicrobial effects that are effective at very low concentrations and unlikely to develop bacterial resistance. Lactobacilli normally comprise at least 70% of the vaginal microbiome, with oral probiotic supplementation providing protection from pathogens and infectious organisms, including Gardnerella vaginalis and Candida ssp.
Nearly 90% of the CFUs in Women’s Health Probiotic are lactobacilli, including species shown to populate the vaginal flora following oral supplementation. Oral supplementation with L. plantarum P17630, for example, has been shown to promote vaginal growth of lactic-acid-producing bacteria, and inhibit Candida spp. overgrowth in women with recurrent vulvovaginal candidiasis. Similarly, vaginal growth of L. paracasei, rhamnosus, and acidophilus, as well as Bifidobacterium animalis subsp. lactis has been shown to increase following oral supplementation, providing protection against vaginal dysbiosis and infection.
