Table of contents
Women’s Biotics 100B CFU – Especially for Women from HSNessentials is a product made from a mix of 8 bacteria strains of the genus Lactobacillus and 3 strains of the genus Bifidobacterium, and formulated with Orafti®HSI Insulin and Fructooligosaccharides.
Ferments, also called probiotics in certain medical literature, are live microorganisms that when ingested in sufficient quantities can generate positive effects in the body, according to the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations and the World Health Organisation.
Women’s Biotics 100B CFU is our most potent “Biotics” version made from a combination of bacteria strains aimed at improving the vaginal microbial environment.
This product has been encapsulated using a veggie coating agent and contains no animal ingredients.
Women’s Biotics 100B CFU – Especially for Women is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Because bacterial vaginosis is a developmental infection prevalent in women, especially young and middle-aged women. 3 out of 4 women will develop vulvovaginitis during their lifetime (Sobel, 1986).
This condition develops when the microbial environment of the female reproductive system loses its predominant balance of bacteria of the genus Lactobacilli and other species dominate the vaginal environment, leading to the appearance of infection symptoms.
The infections of the female reproductive system, even if they are minor, are still considered a risk factor for the development of more serious conditions in women, so controlling their appearance and development is a important (Winn, 2007).
Di Cerbo et al. (2015) explain that the loss of dominance of Lactobacillus bacteria affects antimicrobial control, and stability is lost to the growth of bacteria that cause conditions such as Candida or Gardnerella.
The above cited authors show the potential of microbial ferments with high concentrations of different Lactobacilli strains to cope with this condition.
The Women's Biotic 100B CFU - Especially for Women formula has been developed considering reports from medical and scientific literature showing the potential of certain strains for the control and prevention of bacterial infections of the urinary tract.
We studied tests that show that the combination of different strains of the genus Lactobacillus can be effective in:
- Restoring vaginal microbiome balance.
- Coping with recurrent Candida infection.
- Containing bacterial overgrowth of the vulvo-vaginal environment.
(Reid et al., 2003; Murina et al., 2014; Petricevic et al., 2008)
The combination of bacteria species used in these studies have also been used in our product, in quantities above those used in the tests to ensure maximum effects.
The use of a multi-formula of different bacteria strains seems to have extra benefits compared to the use of a mono-ingredient product, possibly through synergy mechanisms, amplifying the action of one to the other and vice versa (Jäger et al., 2019).
Murina et al. (2014)'s study used a formula made from Lactobacillus fermetum, acidophilus, and two indigestible polysaccharides, including FOS. Why?
Because as Markowiak and Slizewska (2017) indicate:
The combination of fermentable fibres such as insulin and fructooligosaccharides with bacterial ferments intended for the colonisation of the gastrointestinal system is symbiotic, and can be more effective in restoring the bacterial balance than with use of the ferments in isolation.
The culturing of the human origin bacteria used in this product has been carried out under extremely strict control conditions.
This has allowed the most suitable bacteria to be used, those that have developed resistance to the proliferation medium, making it:
- More resistant to changes in pH in the gastrointestinal system.
- Survive better in environments with unfavourable temperatures.
- Reach a greater number of functional microorganisms in the colonisation section in which they present the beneficial effects described above.
Bacteria that can handle anything, no one can resist them!
CFU (Colony Forming Units) are the way to express the capacity of the bacteria used in the formulation of the product to present positive effects in the body.
Any product that indicates the amount of bacteria in units that do not measure biological activity in CFU is an indication of poor product quality control, as it does not indicate the actual effects of the bacteria.
With the passage of time, bacteria die. As they are living microorganisms, they lose their functional capacity and may reach a point where they do not provide us with benefits. Our Biotics, including the Women's Biotics 100B CFU, indicate the Colony Forming Unit content of the bacteria at the end of their shelf life, thus ensuring maximum product activity.
Women's Biotics 100B CFU - Especially for Women is suitable for use in vegetarian and vegan diets.
Both the ingredients that make up the active components of the product and the compounds used to make the capsules are free from traces of animal compounds, 100% assured thanks to our quality guarantees in the processing of all HSN products.
This product does not contain Genetically Modified Organisms.
You only need to take one capsule a day, before a meal.
Store the product in the fridge to extend its shelf life and minimise the loss of ferment activity.
It goes well with products such as:
- Cranberry Extract (20:1) 500mg.
- Rhodiola Rosea Extract (5:1) 400mg.
- Multivitamins – Especially for Women.
