How can taking a probiotic improve my feminine health?

There are many outside elements that can cause issues with the natural balance of good and bad bacteria found in the vagina and urinary tract. Paired with a good feminine hygiene routine, taking a daily probiotic has the ability to introduce a variety of natural flora back into the body. 

Are there any side effects?

Taking a probiotic supplement is similar to a vitamin. Probiotics' side effects, if they occur, tend to be mild and digestive (such as gas or bloating). More serious effects have been seen in some people, (however rare.) Probiotics might theoretically cause infections that need to be treated with antibiotics, especially in people with underlying health conditions. Please visit your doctor right away if you experience severe symptoms of any kind. Our manufacturer is GMP quality certified.

Does it need refrigeration?

It does not need refrigeration, but you can refrigerate it to maximize potency. 

How long does it take for me to get my product?

Naturella Made products typically ship next day and arrives within 4-6 days with standard shipping. You have the ability to track your order through facebook messages. 

Does taking a probiotic reduce the effectiveness of my birth control?

No! The short answer is no. Probiotics and birth control work separately in the body. Probiotics do not have an impact on any of the female hormones. Probiotics are designed to help the body with digestion, pH balance, and immunity.

Can you take probiotics with other supplements?

Patients can take probiotics and multivitamins together, it is a good combination and many dietitians will recommend this. Probiotics and vitamins work together really well in the body. Probiotics can help vitamins to be separated and used in the body through the digestive processes. Vitamins do not impede the probiotics role, just as probiotics do not hamper the vitamins potency. When taking a probiotic it is also recommended to take a prebiotic to improve the probiotics performance in the body. 

What is the difference between Yeast Infections and Bacterial Vaginosis?
