Women have a special set of needs and concerns when it comes to our bodies and often find ourselves dealing with different issues that can range from vaginal health (no need to blush, we’re all girls here) to digestive disruptions, sleep issues and beyond.
The female body is unique and complicated, and as women we have the great and sometimes overwhelming task of figuring out how to keep all cylinders running at full steam while managing the different demands and stresses (of which there are MANY) that come our way.
Science has shown that probiotics can help restore and maintain good balance in the different systems that control these various functions and organ systems, especially when it comes to digestion and vaginal health. But, how can a tiny supplement pack so much power? As a woman, which one is best for you?
To understand all that, we first need to get to know a few basics about bacteria.
Our bodies are host to many different types of bacteria which can be kind of gross to think about since all our lives we’ve been told that bacteria is what causes disease and illness.
We’ve got antibacterial soaps and hand sanitizers and cleaning sprays all formulated specifically to keep those pesky germs away. However, only some strains of bacteria are bad and most are actually quite helpful which is a good thing, considering that you can find bacteria pretty much everywhere on and even inside the body.
Skin, mouth, eyes, nose, digestive and reproductive tracts…pretty much anywhere with a connection to the outside world is host to a veritable cornucopia of different bacteria strains. How do we get them? It starts when we pass through the birth canal and continues throughout childhood and on through the rest of our lives with everything we eat, touch, and come in contact with. Short of living in a germ-free bubble, bacteria simply can’t be avoided.
As a consolation prize, these different bacterias (you’ll find over three pounds worth hiding out in various places on and inside your body) are pretty grateful to you for being their host and do a lot to return the favor.
They help with different physiological functions like digestion and immune response, vitamin synthesis and energy metabolism too. Having a good balance in bacteria is important for keeping these different bodily systems in check, which is where probiotics and probiotic supplements come into play.
Different strains of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium are the main components of most probiotics, these healthy bacterias work to heal and maintain balance in the bacterias and yeasts already found in your body and only the best strains should be used when it comes to a probiotic supplement.
