OptiBac Intimate Flora for Women provides at least 2.3 billion live cultures per capsule, which have been through numerous in vitro tests to ensure their quality. Furthermore, these two strains have been clinically trialled in numerous studies around the world, involving thousands of women over the last two decades.
Made especially for women, this supplement contains two strains of natural bacteria which are found in the intimate flora.
Alongside taking this product, it may also be worthwhile considering your diet (for example reducing your intake of sugar, which can feed harmful bacteria and yeasts), increasing your water intake and avoiding feminine wipes, douches and soaps in the intimate area - which can upset the natural vaginal pH.
For every 14+ capsules pack of OptiBac Probiotics For women purchased, OptiBac Probiotics will donate at least 20p to the international womens rights charity, Womankind Worldwide.
Womankind Worldwide partners with organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America to challenge discrimination of, and violence against, women. This means you can purchase with a purpose!

Most friendly bacteria supplements are suitable for anyone to take. However, several strains survive to reach the vaginal flora and prefer to colonise there. They are considered specific vaginal live cultures and can be found in Optibac Intimate Flora for Women.

This comes down to personal choice. Some women take a seven-day intensive course as and when needed, but others feel more confident when taking vaginal live cultures daily.

Taken orally, vaginal live cultures, such as those in Intimte Flora for Women, are proven to reach the vagina alive in three to four days and to colonise in the vaginal flora within one week. Lactobacilli bacteria in the vaginal flora produce lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide, which help to keep the all-important pH balance in the vagina at an optimum pH of 4.5 (slightly acidic).
Intimate Flora for women helps to support the vaginal flora. A healthy vagina typically contains Lactobacilli bacteria which produce lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide that help to keep the all-important pH balance in the vagina at an optimum pH of 4.5 (slightly acidic).
