ProVen Women's Lactobacillus & Bifidus with Cranberry is a product formulated with three strains of Lactobacillus, including two Lactobacillus acidophilus strains and the Lactobacillus gasseri, a vital part of the vaginal flora.
Beneficial bacteria play a key role in supporting not only the digestive tract but also the urogenital tract in women. For instance, most urinary tract infections (UTIs), also known as cystitis, stem from an Escherichia coli (E. coli) bacterial species. While E. coli typically coexists peacefully with good bacteria in the gut and urogenital tract, it can occasionally proliferate and cause infection.
The urogenital tract, encompassing both the urinary tract and vagina, houses a microbiome similar to the gastrointestinal tract. In healthy women, Lactobacillus is the predominant bacteria in the vagina, and an overgrowth of other bacterial strains can disrupt the natural bacterial balance in this area.
Several factors can influence this bacterial equilibrium, including hormonal changes (especially during menopause), menstruation, childbirth, gut bacteria, sexual activity, contraceptives, and antibiotic use.
Each daily capsule of ProVen Women's Lactobacillus & Bifidus delivers 17.5 billion live bacteria, combining the Lab4 consortium of bacteria with Lactobacillus gasseri. Additionally, each capsule contains cranberry extract and vitamin B6, which aids in hormonal activity regulation.
