Probiotics Right for Her
Probiotics help to rebalance the female vaginal microflora, which is a rich and complex ecosystem, mainly consisting of lactobacilli which support the vaginal environment and health. Acting upon the gut or vaginal microbiota, specific probiotics can help each individual woman at every stage of her life, from puberty to menopause. The benefits of probiotics to support women’s health are increasingly recognized, 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. Innovative solutions targeting specific vaginal conditions can now be conveniently orally administered.

ROSELLA is a unique strain isolated from a healthy vaginal flora with full mechanistic and clinical evidence of efficacy on a wide spectrum of benefits, from helping to maintain proper vaginal balance, including from oral intake, to being used for recurrent Vulvovaginal Candidiasis (rVVC).
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 lifestyle, physiology, hormonal cycles or stage of 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 number 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 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.
Candidiasis is characterized by an overgrowth of yeast known as Candida such as Candida albicans. Three out of four women will have an imbalance with a Candida albicans prominent microflora at some point in their life. Proper Candida albicans balance is an indicator of healthy vaginal microbiota.
Urinary Tract discomfort
>50% of women will have at least one occasional urinary tract discomfort at some point in her life. Women experience urinary tract discomfort up to 30 times more often than men.
Recurrence: Four in ten women who experience urinary tract discomfort will experience another within six months.
