https://apis.google.com/js/plusone.js Most women do not realize how important it is to maintain proper vaginal flora in order to prevent yeast infections and urinary tract infections. Vaginal yeast infections are caused by the the fungus Candida albicans. Most women have experienced a yeast infection. This can occur the most often if the woman is pregnant, obese, diabetic or on an antibiotic used to treat other types of infections. Antibiotics change the normal balance between germs in the vagina by decreasing the number of protective bacteria.
Yeast infections are preventable. Jarrow Formulas Fem-Dophilus® is an oral probiotic that promotes natural vaginal health. Fem-Dophilus® contains two patented and clinically tested strains of probiotic bacteria, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1® and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14®, discovered and developed by Drs. Gregor Reid and Andrew Bruce of Urex Biotech. Research has confirmed that GR-1 and RC-14 taken as an oral supplement colonize and protect the vaginal tract. Over twenty years of research has shown that GR-1 and RC-14 help to restore and maintain the balance of flora important to vaginal and urinary tract health.
After taking Fem-Dophilus® every day for the past week I am confident that I will not suffer from a yeast or urinary tract infection in the near future. For more information on Fem-Dophilus® visit jarrow.com. Jarrow Formulas is also on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter.
