Probiotics for women’s health at any stage of life
The benefits of probiotics to support women’s health are increasingly recognised, mainly due to their ability to maintain and restore digestive and vaginal microflora balance, with positive consequences on feminine health as well as on digestive health, stress or immunity.
Based on a rich strain bank and in-depth knowledge of probiotics modes of actions and clinical research, Lallemand Health Solutions is offering a unique range of probiotic strains to be formulated into adapted formats to address specific issues of women’s health.
The vaginal microflora plays an essential role in feminine health. Infections such as bacterial vaginosis, vulvovaginal candidiasis or urinary tract infections are often linked to unbalanced vaginal microflora, and very common in women. Specific probiotics of the Lactobacillus species from Lallemand Health Solutions’ portfolio can help prevent the reccurence of these infections. Contrary to antimicrobial treatments, probiotics have no side effects, don’t eliminate other beneficial bacteria, and do not favour antibiotic resistance.

Hormone fluctuations during the menstrual cycle are well recognizes parameters impacting women’s general health and wellness. Three health areas are particularly concerned, and recognized targets for probiotics: gastro-intestinal discomfort, immunity and mood disorder.
At each stage of their life, women experiment specific health and well-being concerns, linked to hormonal and physiological changes. Hence, probiotics strains have been selected to address the specific issues of the child-bearing age, pregnancy and menopause.
