Probiotics for women’s health

Healthy bacteria are required to support both the digestive tract and the urogenital tract in women.

The urogenital tract comprises both the urinary tract and the vagina and both contain a microbiome (bacteria) in the same way as the gastrointestinal tract. Lactobacillus is the primary bacteria of the vagina of healthy women and the growth of too many other strains can lead to an imbalance in the natural bacteria of the vagina.

This bacterial balance may be affected by a number of factors, including hormonal changes (particularly menopause), menstruation, childbirth, the gut bacteria, sexual activity, contraceptives and antibiotics.
