Probiotics for Women

Women pass through different stages in life from birth to menopause. A vaginal environment is maintained by the interaction of the vaginal epithelium and the microflora. Just like the gut, our vagina is host to billions of microbes consisting of yeast and bacteria. Bacteria play an important role in a women's host-pathogen system. Lactobacilli are among the healthiest bacteria found on the vaginal lining. Bacterial vaginosis happens due to lactobacilli’s inability to colonize at the vaginal site. This could happen for several reasons including infection, hormonal changes ,  antibiotic usage, puberty, menstruation, and lack of personal hygiene. 

Women aged 15-40 years are easy carriers of bacterial vaginosis and other transmitted infections due to the shifting of hormonal levels, lifestyles, method of childbirth and post-pregnancy unhygienic practices. Premenopause and menopause  change the level of estrogen in women's bodies.  Decreases in the levels of estrogen result in the lowering of epithelial glycogen and lactobacilli. 

Vaginal dysbiosis is a common phenomenon. Treatment with antibiotics is not a wise solution as it can lead to disruption of the gut and vaginal microflora. This is where probiotics step in.

Probiotics therapy is a well-proven method of reducing the risk and recurrence of bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract and  yeast infections. To balance physical and psychological health burdens, we have designed specific probiotic supplements along with cranberry, vitamins, and minerals. Supplements containing these essential nutrients helps maintain a healthy vaginal and gut microbiome.

Probiotics' potential benefits in maintaining a healthy vaginal microbiome have just recently been investigated by health experts.

An imbalance in the vaginal flora could be caused by a lack of lactobacilli or an abundance of another microorganism.
