Vibrant Health – U.T. Biotic, Daily Support for Healthy Urogenital Flora and Bladder Function for Men and Women with 25 Billion CFU of Probiotics, Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Non-GMO, 30 Count (FFP) Description
Product Packaging:Frustration-Free Packaging U.T. Biotic is a daily maintenance formula for urogenital health. Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) occur when pathogenic bacteria invade the urinary tract. Since lactobacilli (probiotics) dominate the flora of healthy urogenital tissue , supporting that flora with probiotics may protect against UTIs. Probiotics additionally play a major role in the maintenance of a healthy vaginal tract by preventing colonization by pathogenic bacteria. Lactobacillus acidophilus and L. paracasei in particular have been shown to compete against pathogenic Staphylococcus aureus, Group B streptococci, and Gardnerella vaginalis, inhibiting their adhesion to vaginal tissues. These Lactobacillus strains and others (L. rhamnosus, L. fermentum) have been identified as anti-infective agents in the vagina. The benefits seem to derive from hydrogen peroxide, lactic acid, and natural antibiotics (bacteriocins) produced by the probiotic bacteria. Cranberry extracts are known to help resist E. coli adhesion on urogenital tissues. For added support to urogenital health, U.T. Biotic includes a new cranberry extract that provides a unique class of proanthocyanidins clinically shown to resist adhesion of unwelcome bacteria in the urinary tract. It joins 25 billion probiotics from 7 strains beneficial for urogenital health as identified in the scientific literature. Each serving of powder also provides 2,000 mg of Fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS) to support probiotic colonization.
