Live Bacteria For Women is beneficial in treating a variety of vaginal conditions, including thrush, vaginal discharge / itching, cystitis, Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) and kidney infections. Women who would particularly benefit from taking Live Bacteria For Women include:
Women who suffer urinary tract infections (UTIs): UTIs cause discomfort and distress, with a burning sensation when going to the loo, and frequent urination. Antibiotics are given to treat the infection – which can have side effects, including causing thrush, leading to a vicious circle of women’s health issues. Probiotics For Women can help prevent the harmful bacteria which cause the infection (which in 80% of cases is E-coli) from sticking to the bladder wall, and so taking these capsules daily can help prevent recurring UTIs in susceptible women. Recent studies have shown that the live bacteria contained within Live Bacteria For Women, Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri, are a safe and effective treatment for recurrent UTIs.
Women who suffer thrush/yeast infections: Thrush can make women’s lives a misery. The constant itching and thick white discharge mean many women never feel clean, and it can affect sexual relationships, too. This multi-strain, live, ‘friendly’ bacteria replenishes gut flora and helps fight the candida yeasts which cause thrush. Both Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri have been shown to be able to reach the vaginal tract alive and colonise it with friendly bacteria, fighting candida locally by literally ‘crowding’ it out.
Women who suffer Bacterial Vaginosis (BV): BV is the most common infection, affecting one in three women – but many have never heard of it, or may be infected yet have no symptoms. The primary cause of infection is candida, and this condition is characterized by a thin white discharge and a strong, “fishy” odour. The live bacteria contained in For Women have been shown to increase the effectiveness of antibiotic treatment of this infection, or act alone to re-colonise the vaginal tract and protect against infection.
