Microbiol Intiem 60 capsules 5 billion live bacteria from Lactobacillus rhamnosus & Lactobacillus reuteri | Vitals
Microbiol Intiem 60 capsules with 5 billion live bacteria is the first effective orally administered probiotic formula for women to provide support of their vaginal flora and protection of the urinary tract against bacterial infections.
Microbiol Intiem 60 capsules 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 Urex Biotech. Over 20 years of research supports the oral use of GR-1 and RC-14 to colonize and protect the vaginal tract.
Clinical trials have shown that GR-1 and RC-14
- help to maintain or restore healthy vaginal flora which is important in maintaining vaginal health
- supports the health of the urinary tract.
Microbiol Intiem is manufactured under pharmaceutical GMP conditions with guaranteed potency and consistency. The probiotic strains in Microbiol Intiem are in a proprietary polysaccharide matrix, which protects the bacteria from stomach acid and enhances probiotic bacteria survival to the lower intestine.
• promotes healthy vaginal microflora
• fights bad bacteria in the urinary tract
• the only female prodbiotic which can be taken orally
• 5 billion organism per capsules
Probiotics support for vaginal health
Restoring the balance of microorganisms to the gut both helps to crowd out unwanted organisms and promote proper immune response, as well. Less well known is the fact that special strains of probiotic bacteria also contribute to vaginal health.
Women with an unhealthy intestinal microflora profile are at a higher risk of developing urogenital infections. Fortunately, scientific findings indicate that supportive microflora that can colonize the vagina play an important role in maintaining health. This suggests that the daily ingestion of certain probiotics may also provide a natural, safe and effective means of balancing microorganisms in the vaginal tracts. Clinical research supports the proposition that proper use of oral probiotics can do just this.
Oral probiotics influence vaginal floral balance
Clinical trials have found that oral intake of probiotics can significantly and beneficially affect the balance of vaginal flora. However, only certain probiotics can provide this benefit. Direct comparisons have demonstrated that the probiotic species and strains must be carefully selected in order to promote vaginal health.
The major criteria required in selecting beneficial probiotics are their ability to colonize the vagina and reduce undesirable vaginal microflora. In one trial, GR-1 and RC-14 administered in skim milk were given orally to 10 women twice daily for 14 days. GR-1 and RC-14 were recovered from the vagina and identified by morphology and molecular typing within 1 week of commencement of the trial.
In another randomized, placebo-controlled trial, GR-1 and RC-14 were given to 64 women for 60 days. Microscopy analysis showed the restoration of healthy vaginal fl ora level in 37% of women taking GR-1 and RC-14 vs. 13% in subjects in placebo group. Other trials have also confirmed the benefits of GR-1 and RC-14 intake.
In order for a probiotic to be effective, significant numbers of live bacteria (indicated as Colony Forming Units or CFU) must survive when the probiotic is taken by mouth. Tests for the gastrointestinal survivability of strains have shown good results. GR-1 and RC-14 are also bile tolerant and survive passage through the gastrointestinal tract. RC-14 and GR-1 are tolerant to 0.3 and 0.5 percent (w/v) bile, respectively. According to the experts, both strains can therefore be considered both acid and bile tolerant given that a concentration of 0.3 percent is considered physiologically relevant.
The Microbiol Intiem difference
Several human and in vitro studies have documented the safety of GR-1 and RC-14.
Unlike many so-called women’s probiotics on the market that have never undergone human clinical trials or in depth laboratory investigations, the strains in Microbiol Intiem are well documented. Lactobacillus rhamnosus (GR-1 ) and Lactobacillus reuteri (RC-14) the patented probiotic bacterial strains that make up Microbiol Intiem, has been demonstrated in clinical studies to reach the vaginal tract and help address specific women’s health needs.
