The vaginal microbiome

The vagina is home to a community of microorganisms that help to determine vaginal health.

A healthy vagina is populated by beneficial Lactobacilli bacteria.

This group of bacteria, named after their ability to produce lactic acid, maintain pH balance in the vaginal environment and help to prevent the overgrowth of unfriendly yeast and bacteria.

Nurturing and supporting the vaginal microbiome is an essential component of maintaining good vaginal and urinary tract health.

Vaginal dysbiosis

When the number of Lactobacilli bacteria in the vagina drops, this is known as vaginal dysbiosis.

Many women with vaginal dysbiosis experience an increased frequency in urinary tract and vaginal infections, such as thrush and bacterial vaginosis.

What causes vaginal dysbiosis?

There are many factors which can disrupt the balance of beneficial bacteria in the vagina, including:

The impact of the gut microbiome on vaginal microbiome health

A gut microbiome that is out of balance can harbour harmful bacteria and yeast that can negatively impact the balance of beneficial bacteria found in the vagina.

Probiotics for the vaginal microbiome

Maintaining good gut health and a healthy gut microbiome with select probiotic strains can help to maintain a healthy vaginal microbiome.

The microbial system and women’s health

Did you know that the collection of beneficial microbes that live in and on our bodies is now regarded as its own organ system? Scientists are calling it the ‘microbial system’.

The microbial system performs tasks that are essential for many aspects of women’s health. Across different stages of life, these microbes will influence iron absorption, vaginal health, pregnancy, and bone health.

When we have an imbalance in the microbes that make up this vital system, these aspects of our health can be compromised.

The perfect probiotic for each stage of life

Specific probiotics with targeted actions can support the microbial system and help to improve various aspects of women’s health.
