New Roots Herbal’s Femina Flora takes an environmental approach to restore a woman’s vaginal health. Each capsule contains billions of friendly bacteria that establish a protective barrier against pathogenic infections. The vaginal area is typically rich in friendly bacteria and lactic acid. This acidic protective barrier shields a woman from infection.
Nearly all entry points into the body are vulnerable to infection, including a woman’s vagina, which is susceptible to pathogenic bacteria and Candida yeast.
This barrier can be weakened or rendered almost non-existent by any number of external influences: antibiotics and sulfonamides, contraceptives (both oral and topical), medicated or fragrant douches, certain vaginal medications, and diabetes. If the balance of friendly flora is altered, the pH level will rise to a neutral state and the entire region is left defenceless against invading pathogens.
The typical approach to eliminating vaginal Candida infections is an antibiotic treatment which eradicates the Candida bacteria. Although this eliminates the condition short term, it does not help rebuild the protective barrier that protects against future infection. Quite the opposite many antibiotics decimate all forms of bacteria including the friendly “protective” lactic acid producing bacteria.
At bed time, introduce one capsule deep in the vagina. Put one capsule in nightly for 10 consecutive nights.
Each vaginal ovule contains:
Lactobacillus acidophilus 982 million CFU
Lactobacillus rhamnosus 8.09 billion CFU
Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus 312 million CFU
Streptococcus salivarius ssp. thermophilus 616 million CFU
