CONCORD, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Specially formulated by doctors at the Canadian National Research and Development Center for Probiotics, over-the-counter RepHresh Pro-B, a feminine probiotic, is now available to women in Canada as a daily supplement to block and reduce yeast and bacteria to maintain healthy vaginal flora.
Women can finally take control of their feminine health with a daily probiotic – a capsule taken orally like a vitamin. Although most people think of a probiotic for digestive health—now women in Canada will be able to purchase a breakthrough in probiotics that will block yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health.
RepHresh Pro-B contains two patented and clinically tested vaginal strains of probiotic Lactobacillus, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1™ and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14™, which have been shown to promote vaginal health.
Women do not always know when vaginal health is being compromised. “Vaginal yeast counts are shown to change significantly within a given month, even with no symptoms,” says Dr. Gregor Reid, President of The Board of the International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics. “When taken daily, the probiotic strains in RepHresh Pro-B are shown to block unwanted yeast and bacteria to maintain vaginal flora.”
Probiotics (“for life”) introduce friendly bacteria into the body to promote and sustain healthy vaginal flora. Studies show that the vaginal ecosystem is constantly fluctuating, making it susceptible to unwanted yeast or bacteria at unpredictable times – whether due to oral antibiotics, the menstrual cycle, sexual activity, or a host of other factors.
Since the body has limited resources to sustain either good or bad bacteria, probiotics boost the healthy flora and give them a tactical advantage in the war over the body’s microbiological environment.
“RepHresh Pro-B reduces side effects associated with the depletion of healthy vaginal flora,” said Dr. Reid, “For reasons not yet understood, one third of women at any given time, have severely depleted lactobacilli, even if they don’t know it.”
In addition, antibiotics taken for other ailments can also kill healthy vaginal flora, making a woman vulnerable to unwanted yeast and bacteria. Pro-B can be taken with antibiotics to maintain or supplement this healthy flora.
Pro-B is a powerful way to keep the vaginal ecosystem balanced and can be used in conjunction with pH balanced RepHresh Vaginal Gel, clinically shown to fight feminine odor.
“We are seeing a revolution in women’s health,” adds Dr. Reid. “Vaginal probiotics keep vaginal flora healthy, and you can’t put a price on that.”
RepHresh Pro-B and RepHresh Vaginal Gel are available in the feminine care aisle of most drug and discount stores. You can also visit www.Aurium.ca to order online and to learn more about vaginal health. Or call 877-728-7486.
