Women’s health

Dedicated probiotics for women’s health, right for her

Women have specific health and wellbeing issues, partly related to their genetics and hormonal changes all through their life. These have repercussions on their immunity, mood, digestive health etc. And what have these issues in common? They can all be linked to endogenous microflora.

The benefits of probiotics to support women’s health are increasingly recognised, mainly due to their ability to maintain and restore digestive and vaginal microflora balance, with positive consequences on feminine health as well as on digestive health, occasional stress or natural defenses. 

Based on a rich strain bank and in-depth knowledge of probiotics modes of actions and clinical research, Lallemand Health Solutions is offering a unique range of probiotic strains to be formulated into adapted formats to address specific issues of women’s health. 

Lactobacilli: THE GATEKEEPERS OF FEMININE HEALTH

The female vaginal microflora is a rich and complex ecosystem, mainly comprised of Lactobacilli. They support the vaginal environment and health.

Every woman encounters specific health and well-being issues according to her life style, physiology, hormonal cycles or stage in life.

Vaginal balance is fragile and many internal or external factors can affect this balance:

Gut health, immunity, mood balance, oral health, intimate health. All have been linked by scientists to endogenous microbiota.

Thanks to their beneficial action upon the gut or vaginal microbiota, specific probiotics can help each woman at every stage of her life, from puberty to menopause.

Vaginal microflora imbalance is caused by changes in the amount of certain types of microorganisms in the vaginal environment. It is the most common reason for occasional vaginal discomfort in women aged 15 to 44.

Bacterial vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis is defined as a vaginal dysbiosis characterized by a decrease in concentration of Lactobacilli in the vagina and an increase in concentration of anaerobic bacteria such as Gardnerella vaginalis, Atopobium vaginae, Mycoplasma hominis, Prevotella, Porphyromonas.
