Complete Probiotics for Women - 180 Capsules
A well established probiotic brand, Dr Mercola’s Complete Probiotics is highly bioavailable and a very effective multi-strain probiotic which promotes good digestive health, a strong immune system and good levels of health for gut, body and mind.
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.
Luckily for women, there is a strain of probiotic bacteria that can help promote a healthy gut, and also support the health of the vaginal microbiome... Lactobacillus bacteria. 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.*
And here’s the best part... There’s no need to deal with messy suppositories. Several studies with healthy women show that oral ingestion of these special probiotic strains can lead to:
- An increase in vaginal lactobacilli after 60 days compared to a group taking a placebo
- A reduction in yeast and unwanted bacterial strains
- A colonization of the wanted strains in both the vagina and rectum
- An optimal vaginal pH for supporting a healthy vaginal microbiome
- An overall improvement in the health of the vaginal microbiome
Researchers have discovered that Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli indirectly support women’s health through the support of digestive health.
Complete Probiotics for Women contains 7 of the same strains found in Complete Probiotics, including my favorite top strain, Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1. I’ve added 3 additional Lactobacillus strains that show science-backed value for women’s health: Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus reuteri, and Lactobacillus gasseri.
