Chronic Vaginitis: Boost Vaginal Health

Probiotics in the vagina, primarily Lactobacillus strains, act as a defensive force by colonizing the vaginal tract, stopping pathogenic microorganisms from latching on.

  • Promotes an acidic vaginal environment to discourage the growth of bad bacteria by producing lactic acid.

  • Produces hydrogen peroxide to help create an inhospitable environment for the "bad" bacteria.

  • Stops microbes from adhering to the vaginal wall, and may also be able to displace those that have taken hold.

  • Stimulating the body’s immune system

  • Fights bad microbes, (including bacteria, yeasts and viruses)




​In addition to maintaining better vaginal health, probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus supplements can also help improve bladder health and keep urinary tract infections (UTIs). Oral intake of Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri has also shown promising results.

Bacterial Vaginosis and UTIs are typically treated with antibiotics, while yeast infections are treated with antifungals. Probiotic supplements can help restore the bacterial balance in the vaginal and urinary tracts after antimicrobial treatment, which kills both good and bad bacteria.

Many infections are caused by a drop in immunity, and vaginal health is linked to hormones. Studies have linked probiotic-rich diets with strengthened immune systems as well as hormonal balance, which makes them an essential part of a healthy diet.

Healthy vaginal bacteria also get passed on to your child when you give birth, so they’re protected by a thriving colony of helpful bacteria from the day they enter the world.
