This high-potency, hypoallergenic blend of nine different types of “friendly” probiotic bacteria supports the genitourinary system of girls and women of all ages by promoting a healthy vaginal microflora.*
The genitourinary tract is populated by numerous different species of bacterial microflora. Probiotic bacteria such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species are normally found in the vaginal microflora and are important to maintaining vaginal and urinary tract health. However, the normal vaginal microflora can be disrupted, which can allow undesirable microorganisms to proliferate. ProBiota Woman by Seeking Health contains select probiotics to help maintain a proper balance of beneficial microorganisms in the genitourinary tract and lend natural support for the genitourinary system as follows:
- Helps maintain a healthy vaginal microflora: ProBiota Woman by Seeking Health delivers large amounts of specific probiotics to promote vaginal microflora balance and regulate against disturbances. The nine species in this formulation provide broad coverage to encourage a healthy balance of microflora across the genitourinary tract and create favorable conditions for dominance of normal, beneficial vaginal microorganisms. *
- Promotes a healthy acidic vaginal pH: Loss of normal vaginal acidity can also lead to the proliferation and overgrowth of harmful bacteria. Lactobacillus species are well-recognized to promote an acidic vaginal pH by producing lactic acid. The presence of lactic acid lowers pH (making it more acidic), which helps protect the vagina against growth of opportunistic pathogens. When Lactobacillus species become less dominant, a change to more alkaline (less acidic) conditions in the vaginal pH occurs and numbers of pathogens such as Candida species, E. coli, and Gardnerella vaginalis (the most common cause of vaginal itching, discomfort, and discharge) may increase. Six Lactobacillus species normally predominant in the vaginal microflora are included to produce lactic acid and help maintain vaginal pH in a healthy acid range.*
- Supports against colonization by harmful yeast and bacteria: The beneficial types of live bacteria supplied by ProBiota Woman by Seeking Health have been shown to support mucosal immune responsiveness to pathogens and secrete substances that block pathogen adherence. Specific Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species are also included for their ability to produce significant amounts of hydrogen peroxide, which support proliferation of beneficial microflora. *
