Hi David,

Probiotics are able to colonize the vagina and positively impact vaginal health. Certain strains of probiotics such as Lactobacillus bacteria are more beneficial to vaginal health than other strains. By populating the vaginal area, Lactobacillus probiotics help to crowd out harmful pathogens that cause issues, such as yeast and E. coli. These Probiotics also produce substances, such as lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, that help to maintain an optimal pH in the vagina and inhibit pathogens.

Many people wonder how orally administered Probiotics positively influence vaginal health. However, many studies show that when taken orally, Probiotics colonize the digestive tract and ascend the vaginal tract by microscopic migration as they leave the intestinal tract.

While Probiotics may not be able to address a current yeast infection, research suggests that when taken on-going, Probiotics can help support vaginal health and keep down yeast overgrowth.
