What is RepHresh Pro-B?

Taken daily like a vitamin, RepHresh Pro-B Probiotic Feminine Supplement is clinically shown to balance yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health.*  RepHresh Pro-B is an easy to swallow capsule.
 
RepHresh Pro-B was specially formulated by doctors at the Canadian Research and Development Centre for Probiotics associated with one of Canada’s foremost Universities.  RepHresh Pro-B contains two patented and clinically tested vaginal strains of probiotic lactobacillus (flora).  Over 10 years of clinical studies have shown that the patented probiotic strains in RepHresh Pro-B, L. rhamnosus GR-1™ and L. reuteri RC-14™, help to maintain the flora important to overall vaginal health, naturally balancing yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health.*

What is a Probiotic?

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.

Why should I take RepHresh Pro-B every day?

RepHresh Pro-B provides a natural and effective means of contributing to healthy vaginal flora.*  Flora can be easily disrupted, so it is important to take RepHresh Pro-B every day for maintenance.  Clinical studies have shown that the vaginal yeast counts of healthy women fluctuate significantly within a given month.  In most cases, women are unaware of these fluctuations.  Because flora is so easily and unknowingly disrupted, it is important to take RepHresh Pro-B every day for maintenance.  When taken daily, RepHresh Pro-B is clinically shown to balance yeast and bacteria, so you can maintain feminine health.*

How is RepHresh Pro-B different from other Probiotic, Lactobacillus, and Acidophilus products?

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.*

Does yogurt offer the same feminine health benefit as RepHresh Pro-B?

No.  While there are yogurts that add probiotics to promote digestive, immunity or other health benefits, RepHresh Pro-B is specifically designed to promote vaginal health.  RepHresh Pro-B is clinically shown to balance yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health.*

What is the difference between a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis?

The two most common types of vaginal infections are bacterial vaginosis (BV) and yeast infections. BV is the most common form of vaginal infection.  Nearly half of all vaginal infections are classified as bacterial vaginosis, while about 29% are classified as yeast infections.  It is common for women to mistake one for the other.  If you suspect you have an infection, see your doctor immediately.

  • BV generally results in an excessive grayish white vaginal discharge and a bothersome “fishy odor” which can be worse after sexual intercourse. Many people describe the discharge as yogurt-like or pasty. May also have vaginal itching & redness.
  • Yeast infections can be very uncomfortable. Symptoms generally include itching and burning in the vagina and around the vulva, a white vaginal discharge that may look like cottage cheese, pain during sexual intercourse, and swelling of the vulva. May be odorless or have a yeasty smell.
