Action of Blackmores Women’s Bio Balance
A healthy vagina is dominated by Lactobacilli, a type of “good” bacteria. Many women are susceptible to vaginal flora imbalances from time to time. Hormonal fluctuations and certain medications are just two of the factors that may disrupt the balance, which can result in irritation and discomfort.
Blackmores Women’s Bio Balance is a one-a-day, oral probiotic, specially designed for vaginal health. It contains 2.3 billion organisms of Lactobacillus rhamnosus, GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri, RC-14 which may help reduce the colonisation of “bad” bacteria and yeast in the vagina.
Clinical trials suggest that Blackmores Women’s Bio Balance also helps to re-establish and balance the natural flora of the vagina.
