There are various means of getting rid of Candida albicans - more commonly known as yeast infection. But getting rid of this infection is only half the battle; if you don't replenish good bacteria in your system, the infection will often return. It is therefore important not only to get rid of Candida albicans in your system, but to regularly supplement with probiotics, particularly if you are prone to yeast infections. Renew Life's Ultimate Flora VS For Women (formerly known as Vaginal Support) can help with this.
With 45 billion active Lactobacilli and 5 billion active Bifidobacteria per capsule, this targeted probiotic supplement is enteric-coated to allow good bacteria to bypass the stomach acid and reach the vaginal and urinary tracts, where they can help lessen the frequency and duration of yeast infections.
- 50 billion active bacteria per capsule
- 45 billion Lactobacilli
- 5 billion Bifidobacteria
- Enteric-coated vegetable capsules
