Fun fact: Did you know that certain strains of probiotics have a unique ability to support a woman’s microbiome? It’s true! This is one of the reasons we at Probulin put so much time, energy and research into creating the most balanced multi-strain probiotic possible for our Probulin Probiotic for Women.
Probiotics may be beneficial to women’s health in a number of ways, and we are providing the top 7 reasons why.
Why Should Women Take Probiotics? Here are 5 Reasons
#1 Probiotics Support Gut Balance for Women and May Relieve Occasional Gas and Bloating
Stress, diet, and even lifestyle may disrupt balance in the microbiome. Balancing the good and bad bacteria is especially important when it comes to supporting smooth digestion, the gut barrier and even immune function.
And if you feel frustrated by the discomfort of occasional gas and bloating, you’ll be glad to know that a daily probiotic may offer some relief! When the microbiome is comfortably maintaining a place of harmony and balance, overall digestion can be more comfortable.
#2 Daily Probiotics for Women May Support Vaginal Balance
Just like other areas of the microbiome that are concentrated in specific strains of bacteria, the vagina contains trillions of micro-organisms which function optimally when these are in balance. The right daily probiotic for a woman may help maintain healthy, balanced vaginal flora.
#3 Beneficial Bacterial May Support Immune Function
We know this to be true: If you go down, everyone around you goes down, too. And that’s why we consider immune function support one of the top five probiotic benefits for women.
The gut contains trillions of bacteria, and with 70% of the immune system residing in the gut, it’s important the microbiome remains as balanced as possible. Consuming probiotics through food or supplements may help work toward this end.
It’s important to note, however, that for probiotics to help support immune function, it’s important they survive their journey through stomach acids and “arrive alive,” which is why an effective delivery system like the MAKTrek 3-D Delivery System used in Probulin probiotic supplements is so crucial.
When the microbiome is in balance, bacteria can work together to support the gut barrier and immune function.
#4: Helps Support Healthy Female Urinary Tract
Since lactobacillus dominate the urogenital flora of healthy premenopausal women, it’s been suggested that use of daily probiotics that include strains of lactobacillus may offer unique urinary tract support.
#5: Probiotic Extracts May Even Support the Appearance of Your Skin
Probiotics in pills or powders that you consume are what most people think of when they hear “probiotics, but many are surprised to learn that topical probiotic extracts may be a game-changer for your skincare routine.
The use of daily topical probiotic extracts may help the appearance of your skin, balance the skin’s pH and even field impact from free radicals. We highly recommend trying them to see and feel the difference.
Probulin carries a really incredible skincare line that features ProbuSkin, the scientifically studied probiotic Lysate (extract) which may help support brighter and healthier-looking skin.
Choose the Best Probiotics for Women’s Health
Certain strains of probiotic bacteria are better than others when used for the specific purpose of supporting women’s health.
The Women’s Health Probiotic by Probulin is made with a 12-strain optimal blend of probiotics that collectively support your gut, digestive, vaginal, and urinary tract health. To ensure that your body is prepared to reap the full benefits of probiotic consumption, you should first talk with a doctor about any medications you’re on or underlying health conditions you may be dealing with. With this knowledge, they can provide better guidance on whether probiotics are ideal for you.
