Probiotics (“for life”) introduce friendly bacteria into the body. Antibiotics (“against life”) are used to eliminate bad bacteria, and unfortunately, antibiotics also kill good bacteria.
Probiotics introduce good and healthy bacteria, called “flora” to promote a healthy environment. Since the body has limited resources to sustain good and bad bacteria, it is important to promote good bacteria to help keep bad bacteria from flourishing. By boosting the healthy flora, probiotics promote the body’s normal, healthy functioning.
In order to be effective, a probiotic must 1) contain live active cultures and 2) contain a strain specific to your needs.
Many products on the market claim to contain probiotics, lactobacillus, and/or acidophilus. In some cases these products do not contain live active cultures. The probiotic, lactobacillus or acidophilus mentioned in these products provides no health benefit.
In other cases, these products contain probiotic strains that are designed to promote digestive, immunity or other health benefits but are not specific to vaginal health. RepHresh Pro-B contains strains specific to vaginal health. RepHresh Pro-B contains two patented and clinically tested strains of probiotic lactobacillus that have been shown to promote vaginal health.*
