5 Effective Ingredients That Can Improve Your Vaginal Health In A Week

Whether you’re prone to vaginal irritation or looking to add routine maintenance into your health routine, here are five super effective ingredients that will help your vagina be her best self—healthy, happy, balanced & comfortable. 

Lactobacillus Acidophilus targets vaginal inflammation

L. acidophilus is a probiotic strain that plays an important role in restoring and fortifying the natural, balanced state of the vagina. Here’s what it does:

It restores the vaginal microbiome.

Your vagina’s delicate microbiome already consists of beneficial bacteria like L. acidophilus. This probiotic strain works hard to strike a healthy balance of microflora in the vaginal tract, and at the same time competes with harmful bacteria, preventing overgrowth and maintaining the natural balance of the vaginal microbiome.

It regulates vaginal pH.

L. acidophilus produces lactic acid through the fermentation of sugars. This process helps maintain an acidic pH in the vagina, which inhibits the growth of harmful pathogens, such as yeast and certain types of bacteria.

It helps prevent vaginal infections.

L. acidophilus produces natural antimicrobials like hydrogen peroxide to control the growth of pathogens that cause infections like bacterial vaginosis (BV) and urinary tract infections (UTIs). This probiotic strain also helps adjust and optimize the vagina’s immune response to infection, so inflammation can be kept to a minimum.

It protects against yeast infections.

L. acidophilus can help protect against the common yeast infection by competing with Candida bacteria for nutrients and space, preventing its overgrowth. The production of lactic acid by L. acidophilus also creates an acidic and undesirable environment for Candida growth, making this strain one of the best probiotics for yeast infections.

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus nurtures vaginal harmony

Consider L. Rhamnosus your partner-in-crime when it comes to creating a thriving microbiome for your vagina. Here's how this incredible probiotic strain contributes to your overall well-being:

It defends against bacteria.

L. rhamnosus possesses a unique ability to support your body’s natural defenses and stop the growth of harmful bacteria that cause common vaginal infections. Acting as a barrier, it helps strike the right balance of microflora in the vaginal tract.

It helps maintain microbial balance.

A harmonious microbial balance is key to vaginal health, and L. rhamnosus plays a crucial role in achieving this balance. By nurturing the growth of beneficial bacteria while inhibiting harmful bacteria, it ensures that your vaginal microbiome remains in a state of equilibrium.

It optimizes immune responses.

In order to maintain the vagina’s equilibrium, nurturing a healthy immune response is a must. L. Rhamnosus stabilizes the vagina’s immune response so that it keeps the environment as balanced as possible as it combats the risk of infections.

Lactobacillus Reuteri fosters antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory & immunity-enhancing properties

L. reuteri paves the way for a healthy and harmonious vaginal environment by producing antimicrobials that act as warriors against harmful bacteria and adjusts immune response to promote balance within the ecosystem. Let's explore the benefits:

It prevents bacterial growth.

Similar to L Rhamnosus, L. Reuteri has the power to create natural antimicrobial substances, like hydrogen peroxide to prevent bacterial growth in the vaginal tract. By creating an environment that discourages the growth of harmful bacteria, L. reuteri supports a vibrant, flourishing vaginal ecosystem.

It helps control inflammation.

Your immune system and its response to infection is your ultimate ally in keeping your vagina fresh and flourishing. L. reuteri helps to optimize and stabilize that response by creating a balanced environment that effectively wards off threats and keeps you and your vaginal well-being as resilient as possible.

Lactobacillus Fermentum regulates inflammation

L. Fermentum, another all-star in our powerful probiotic lineup, is not only capable of helping to balance immunity and producing antimicrobials, but of also lowering cholesterol, which has been linked to decreasing inflammation in the body. Here’s how it works:

It regulates the immune response.

Just like its counterparts, L. Fermentum contributes to the immunity-boosting brigade of the probiotics on this list—it helps reinforce the immune system’s response to infection and harmful bacteria and keep your vaginal microbiome stable and healthy.

It helps lower cholesterol.

Studies have shown that increased inflammation correlates to higher levels of cholesterol found in the body. In an effort to reduce chronic inflammation in the body in general, and consequently the vaginal ecosystem, L. Fermentum can enhance full-body health & wellness.

XOS Prebiotics feeds the probiotics

Xylooligosaccharides, also known as XOS Prebiotics, are key to unlocking the full potential of probiotics, acting as food to keep them working harder, for longer. No probiotic supplement is complete without the addition of a good prebiotic.
