As with any dietary supplement, you should consult your healthcare provider before use, especially if pregnant, nursing, have a medical condition, taking medications, or have known adverse reactions or allergies.
How does Women’s Care Probiotics support feminine health?
Beneficial microflora are plentiful in a woman’s urinary tract and vagina. But, if that delicate balance is off, it’s easy for opportunistic species of yeast and bacteria to overpopulate, leading to issues like urinary discomfort, yeast overgrowth, and urinary tract infections (UTIs). As the second most common infection that occurs in the human body, UTIs affect up to half of all women over the course of a lifetime, and prompt over 8 million doctor visits a year, according to the National Institutes of Health.
The standard course of treatment for a UTI is antibiotics—which for many women can be a double edged sword. Antibiotics kill off invasive bacteria, like E.coli, but they can also destroy the beneficial strains required to maintain pH levels in the vagina for a healthy balance of flora. The elimination of helpful bacteria allows candida fungus to grow unchecked, and that can quickly lead to a stubborn yeast infection.
Naturewise Women’s Care Probiotics helps to replenish helpful bacteria that keep UTIs and candida from occurring. Our formula includes cranberry and D-Mannose to help nourish beneficial flora and dislodge invasive bacteria from the kidneys, bladder, and urethra, for enhanced urinary tract support. With 8 targeted strains and 6 billion CFU, NatureWise Women’s Care Probiotics is carefully formulated to support vaginal, urinary, digestive, and immune health for women.*
How many CFUs does Women’s Care Probiotics contain?
Our Women’s Care Probiotics includes clinical strains for vaginal, urinary, digestive, and immune health. It contains 6 billion CFU at time of manufacture, and a minimum of 2 billion CFU at expiration.
Does it need to be refrigerated?
Our Women’s Care Probiotics does not need to be refrigerated. It is guaranteed viable with live, active cultures up to expiration, and we ensure exceptional shelf-life stability—even at room temperature. To maximize potency and extend the shelf life beyond 18 months, we recommend storing your probiotics in the refrigerator.
What is the WiseBiotics Delivery System?
Stomach acids can destroy up to 96% of probiotics before they ever reach the lower GI tract. Our WiseBiotics delivery system ensures not only that your probiotic caplet survives transit through corrosive gastric acids, but it will continue to deliver a controlled release of live, active cultures over an extended period of time, throughout your large and small intestines, for optimal health. With its unique sustained-release caplet technology, our WiseBiotics delivery system works smarter than standard probiotic capsules or softgels to protect and deliver 15 times more live cultures to their targeted destination.*
What does ‘gastric acid resistant’ mean?
Once your caplet is moistened by digestive fluids, the WiseBiotics delivery system forms a protective, outer layer that shields probiotics from harsh stomach acids and fluctuating pH levels. Not until your caplet reaches the intestinal tract will it then begin to slowly dissolve, continuously releasing beneficial probiotics from the caplet core.*
What does ‘sustained release’ mean?
WiseBiotics continues to repopulate beneficial gut flora over 8-10 hours. Enteric-coated capsules release their entire contents upon dissolution, but our WiseBiotics delivery system continuously distributes probiotics as the caplet moves through your GI tract. Our caplet technology directs strain-specific probiotics to the microenvironments best suited for them to flourish. For example, L. acidophilus is released earlier, where it attaches to the upper GI tract, while B. bifidum is delivered to the higher pH environment of the lower GI tract, where it can thrive.*
