Not every gut, urinary or genital condition needs antibiotics.
Women are very susceptible to IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Constipation, BV (bacterial vaginosis), Yeast and Urinary Infections, yet most of these conditions do not necessarily require medical treatment
What role do probiotics play?
The role of probiotics and cranberry in gut and urogenital health, is best split into the respective systems: i.e. Gut Health, Urinary Health & Genital Health.
In addition to probiotics, there is ample evidence pointing towards the use of Cranberry extract in Urinary Health support
Femina™ is a Synbiotic (probiotic & prebiotic) enriched meal supplement & Cranberry extract, formulated with high dose micro-encapsulated probiotics to support female urogenital health.
It is high in protein (27g per serving), low in energy (<1g Carbs per serving) and high in fibre (4g per serving) making it ideal for women leading an active lifestyle.
However, what makes the real difference in Femina™ is the multiple strain probiotics (10 strains) delivering over 10 billion CFU per serving.
Who benefits from Femina?
Improved Gut Health
Gastrointestinal distress and associated symptoms are twice as common in women as they are in men. The discomfort is additionally complicated by other factors including menses, migraine, heartburn and fibromyalgia.
Improved Genital Health
Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) is one of the most common infections affecting women of child-bearing age and has been shown to affect as many as 1 in 3 women. It is usually cited as the most common cause of genital discomfort in women of reproductive age
Urinary Tract Health
The use of antibiotics to treat moderate and recurrent UTIs is becoming controversial and problematic due to its association with resistance and depletion of normal flora. There is no doubt that they provide short-term benefit, but the long-term benefits remain contentious.
