VagiBiom is a natural line of vaginal pre and probiotics that are designed to balance and restore the vaginal microbiome. VagiBiom’s products are formulated with beneficial microbes that colonize a health-promoting flora. VagiBiom’s vaginal suppositories have been shown to balance and restore optimal pH levels, maintain clear skin, help women feel clean and confident, as well as prevent against vaginal infections.
What Is The Microbiome?
According to the National Human Genome Research Institute, the microbiome is a term used to describe the specific collection of microorganisms (including fungi, bacteria, and viruses) that exist in a particular environment, the gut being the largest. The microbiome consists of microbes that are both helpful and potentially harmful. Most of these microbes are beneficial and live in synergy with the human body. But, when the balance of both beneficial and harmful microbes are disrupted, the body becomes more susceptible to disease and illness. Some examples of common causes for disturbances include antibiotics, certain diets, illness, and stress. Changes in the microbiome have also been associated with autoimmune diseases, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
The Vaginal Microbiome
Having a healthy microbiome goes way beyond the digestive system. For women, having a flourishing vaginal microbiome is important for balancing pH, preventing infections, and reproductive health. The vagina is inhabited by over 50 species of beneficial microbes - Lactobacilli being the most prevalent. This composition of microbes is also known as the vaginal flora. These beneficial bacteria are responsible for protecting against urogenital infections. A vaginal microbiome that is rich in Lactobacilli prevents the growth of bacteria that cause sexually transmitted infections and viruses.
The vagina is extremely sensitive when it comes to the composition of these microbes and disturbances in pH. When Lactobacilli is reduced, the acidity of the vagina changes, which predisposes women to vaginal infections.
In women of reprouctive age, changes in hormone levels also cause fluctuations in the vaginal microbiome. A balanced vaginal flora plays a critical role for reproduction as well. A properly balanced environment in the reproductive tract can help support embryo implantation and a healthy pregnancy.
The most common urogenital infection in premenopausal women is bacterial vaginosis (BV). BV is a condition in which the population of Lactobacilli becomes depleted. This imbalance results in vaginal itching, painful urination, abnormal discharge, and unpleasant odors. The treatment for BV typically consists of anti-fungal medications or antibiotics. However, this does not get to the root of the issue - replenishing the beneficial Lactobacilli bacteria.
So, just like millions of people who take probiotic supplements for their digestive system, a vaginal probiotic is just as important.
What Is A Vaginal Suppository?
VagiBiom has patented their powerful formula into an easy to use vaginal suppository. As opposed to taking a supplement by mouth, the suppository is inserted directly into the vagina. This allows the body to easily absorb the contents and begin working immediately. Taking this supplement as a suppository form ensures that the beneficial microbes will make it to the reproductive system since they are able to surpass the acidic environment of the gut.
When VagiBiom’s suppository is inserted into the vagina, it will begin working its magic. The probiotic suppository has been shown to control current vaginal infections, prevent vaginal dryness, restore pH, and naturally restore vaginal flora.
VagiBiom’s probiotic suppository is 100% vegan and uses an all-natural blend of Lactobacilli strains, hylauronic acid, lactic acid, and other natural moisturizers.
VagiBiom uses a patented probiotic strain that consists of a combination of three Lactobacilli strains. These include Lactobacillus crispatus, Lactobacillus gasseri, Lactobacillus jensenii, as well as a beneficial strain of Bacillus coagulans. The combination of these 4 strains make up a potent blend of billions of beneficia bacteria. The combination of these strains has been shown to provide an optimal vaginal environment.
The reason that Lactobacillus is so important for vaginal health is because it produces lactic acid. Lactic acid is responsible for providing the optimum vaginal pH, which prevents the growth of harmful bacteria.
Studies have found that hyaluronic acid has been shown to reduce painful intercourse, improve vaginal pH, and repair damaged cells.
VagiBiom’s all-natural moisturizing complex helps to nurture delicate vaginal tissues. The moisturizing complex also contains other beneficial ingredients, such as coconut fatty acids and organic jasmine oil. The moisturizers provide powerful relief for dryness, itching, burning, and general discomfort.
Caring for the vaginal microbiome is the first step in improving womens health. The delicate balance of the vaginal flora is responsible for preventing infections, balancing hormone levels, and ensuring a healthy reproductive system. VagiBiom is all-natural, vegan, gluten-free, paraben-free, and contains no titanium dioxide or triclosan.
For anyone looking to prevent infections, find relief from current infections, or just looking to improve vaginal flora, VagiBiom’s probiotic suppository is the answer. VagiBiom’s suppository will balance and restore the vaginal microbiome and allow you to feel confident and fresh.
