Vaginal Strain of Probiotic Lactobacilli, L. Reuteri RC-14, in Pro-B, Balance Yeast and Bacteria
According to Gregor Reid, PhD MBA Probiotics and Prebiotics Professor
The human body contains trillions of bacteria outnumbering human cells 10 to 1. Microbes inhabit just about every part of the human body, living on the skin, gut, nose and the vagina. Each of these bacteria has different characteristics and functions. The vaginal strain, L. Reuteri RC-14 in RepHresh Pro-B has been studied and proven to help maintain feminine health by balancing yeast and bacteria.
Everyday occurrences like taking oral antibiotics, the menstrual cycle, sexual activity, exercise and swimming, can upset the balance of bacteria or yeast. Lactobacillus, yeast and other bacteria are all naturally present within the woman’s body, and optimum feminine health occurs when the beneficial lactobacilli are balanced with yeast
“Vaginal yeast counts are shown to change significantly within a given month, even with no symptoms,” says Dr. Gregor Reid PhD MBA, President of the Board of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics and Professor at the Lawson Health Research Institute Microbiology, Immunology and Surgery. “When taken daily, the probiotic strains in RepHresh Pro-B are shown to introduce friendly bacteria into the body to promote and sustain healthy vaginal flora.”
Since the body has limited resources to sustain either good or bad bacteria, vaginal probiotics boost the healthy flora. Pro-B keeps the vaginal ecosystem balanced and can be used in conjunction with pH balanced RepHresh Vaginal Gel to eliminate feminine odor. Retaining a vaginal pH between 3.5 and 4.5 is essential to women’s everyday health. Everything from menstruation and douching to sex and pregnancy can set off this daily pH balance.
“One third of women at any given time, have severely depleted lactobacilli, even if they don’t know it,” adds Dr. Reid. “Vaginal probiotics keep vaginal flora healthy, and you can’t put a price on that.”
