Human survival depends on the help of trillions of bacteria that live on surfaces inside and outside the body. These bacteria are a vital part of our defense system against all kinds of pathogenic (disease-causing) organisms. Friendly bacteria are best-known as being essential to digestive health, which is why most friendly bacteria supplements - known as probiotics - are oriented towards digestive health.
Bacteria are also critical for the health of the female reproductive tract. But these are different species than you'd find in the digestive system, so most probiotic products won't help these situations. Forward-looking supplement makers like Jarrow have produced probiotics that specifically target female health. And it's not just pretty packaging. Fem-Dophilus contains 2 species of friendly bacteria specifically shown to benefit the health of the female reproductive tract when used on a daily basis. This is a much better way to harness the power of friendly bacteria than eating sugary yogurt. Since it's from Jarrow, we know it's not just a good formula, it's got the right kind of delivery system, in this case, fully-protected enteric-coated capsules.
Fem-Dophilus Description from Jarrow
Fern-Dophilus contains two patented and clinically documented probiotic strains, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri, RC-14, discovered and developed by Dr. Gregor Reid and Dr. Andrew Bruce at U. Biotech. Over 25 years of research supports the oral use of GR-1 and RC-14 to colonize and promote healthy vaginal and urinary tract health. A special manufacturing process protects the probiotic strains in Fern-Dophilus from stomach acid and enhances probiotic bacterial survival to the lower intestine.
