Ther-Biotic Womens Formula
This high-CFU, hypoallergenic blend of 10 probiotic species is specifically formulated to support a woman’s genitourinary system.† The presence of Lactobacillus species is essential to a healthy genitourinary system for girls and women of all ages. Lactobacilli modulate the mucosal immune response to undesirable microorganisms, secrete biosurfactants to block their adherence and disrupt biofilm formation, produce lactic acid to promote a healthy vaginal pH, and generate bacteriocins.† Certain lactobacilli and bifidobacteria secrete short-chain fatty acids and hydrogen peroxide, which further discourage colonization by undesirable microorganisms and support the proliferation of beneficial microbiota.†
Ther-Biotic® Women’s Formula supplies substantial amounts of L. acidophilus and L. rhamnosus which produce hydrogen peroxide to antagonize growth of undesirable microorganisms and lactic acid to support vaginal pH to a healthy acid range.† Other lactobacilli normally found in the vaginal microbiota are also included to help create conditions for re-emergence and dominance of normal indigenous vaginal lactobacilli.† Lactobacillus gasseri, one of the most prevalent bacterial organisms found in vaginal tracts of healthy adult women, further augments this formula through production of substances such as hydrogen peroxide which favor the proliferation of beneficial microbiota.† The Bifidobacterium species are normal constituents of the vaginal microbiota, resist colonization of the vagina by undesirable microorganisms, and promote growth of indigenous healthy lactobacilli.†
Ther-Biotic® Women’s Formula is recommended for women wishing to maintain or restore a healthy vulvovaginal microbiota, healthy acidic vaginal pH, and support a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria.† Provided in capsules with InTactic® technology to protect probiotic bacteria from destruction by gastric acid.
