Complete Probiotics for Women contains 7 of the same strains found in Complete Probiotics and 3 additional Lactobacillus strains that show science-backed value for women’s health: Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus reuteri, and Lactobacillus gasseri.
When it comes to probiotics, researchers are discovering that women have special needs that extend beyond a healthy gut.
A woman’s vagina has its own microbiome – or diverse collection of bacteria – much like her gut has its own microbiome. Like her gut, a woman’s vagina thrives on a healthy balance of bacteria and can experience issues when the wrong bacteria grow out of control.
Lactobacillus bacteria is a strain of probiotic bacteria that can help promote a healthy gut and also support the health of the vaginal microbiome. More than 20 species of lactobacilli probiotic bacteria have been identified in the healthy female vagina.
Dr. Mercola’s Complete Probiotics for Women contains 7 of the most dominant Lactobacilli probiotic species found in a woman’s healthy vagina. In addition, this complete formula contains 3 common species of Bifidobacteria. Researchers believe that Bifidobacteria may have similar protective or health-promoting effects as Lactobacilli.
Several studies with healthy women show that oral ingestion of these special probiotic strains can lead to:
Researchers have discovered that Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli indirectly support women’s health through the support of digestive health – an exciting win-win for women of all ages!
Adults, as a dietary supplement, take two (2) capsules daily, preferably in the morning.
