OptiBac Probiotics 'For women' is specially designed to support vaginal health. It contains two high-quality probiotic strains: Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14® and Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1®, which have been extensively researched in thousands of women, and found to help resolve and inhibit the symptoms of Bacterial vaginosis (BV), UTIs and Thrush.
These probiotic strains are different to other probiotics in that they prefer to colonise primarily in the vaginal tract, rather than the intestines. This allows them to gently rebalance the delicate vaginal microflora and discourage the pathogens that cause infections.
‘For women’ can be taken during an active infection, or on an ongoing basis to support the delicate vaginal microbiome during all stages of a woman's life, including puberty, pregnancy, and during/after the menopause.
Each capsule provides 2.3 billion live cultures, proven to reach the vagina alive and guaranteed until end of expiry. This easy-to- swallow probiotic is GMO and gluten-free, and safe for use in women & girls from the age of 4 years. It should be taken with breakfast for best results. For anyone unable to swallow capsules, the capsule can be opened, and the contents mixed with cold, non-acidic food or drink.
Unlike many products containing probiotic cultures, this supplement does not require refrigeration if stored in a cool dry place below 77oF (25oC). Each pack contains 14 capsules.
