Did you know that most women will develop either a fungal or bacterial vaginal infection in their lifetime? For some women, it may become chronic and debilitating, affecting general wellbeing, confidence, sex life, and more. Are you or your partner affected?

A healthy vaginal microbiome is composed mainly of the Lactobacillus strains, including L. acidophilus, L. gasseri, L. rhamnosus, and L. plantarum with some Bifidobacterium species. These strains produce lactic acid, which maintains the vaginal pH balance to be within the required 3.5-4.5.

Our blog explores everything from the common signs and symptoms, the research on vaginal microbiome and which probiotic strains are the most beneficial, to what dietary and lifestyle factors can help!
