Put Your Feminine Health First

Don

Are you too shy to talk about intimate topics? When it comes to women’s health, the discussion of intimate female care is usually glossed over. Yet, gynecological health is vital to a woman’s overall wellness, and it’s time we normalise the conversation around it. 

Are you neglecting your V health? Here are some signs that you need to look for: 

Odour 

V Odour Doesn

Contrary to popular culture and expectations of ‘flowers and roses’ Down Below, the V is meant to have its own natural scent. However, strong odours can also be a sign of infection, bacterial growth, or illness. Proper feminine hygiene is important to ensure healthy and balanced V flora. 

 

Discharge 

V discharge can come in many different colours and textures. Some normal types of discharge can be: 

  • Water, sticky, or of egg-white consistency
  • Thick and creamy

 

Some signs of concern with discharge includes: 

  • An unpleasant odour
  • A change in colour (greenish, grey, cloudy)
  • Change in texture (chunky, foamy)

 

Aside from maintaining basic hygiene with your V, balancing your good and bad bacteria to maintain a slightly acidic pH level between 3.8 to 4.2 can be as easy as adding the Nutrilite Cranberry Fruit Drink Base with Probiotic, Inulin & FOS to your daily intake!

Containing 3 hero probiotic strains (Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001, acidophilus La-14 and acidophilus NCFM), each sachet contains 10 billion colony-forming units (CFU) to keep your V healthy. 

 

So, how does the Nutrilite Cranberry Fruit Drink Base with Probiotic, Inulin & FOS care for your V? 

 

Probiotics 

We know probiotics are great for your gut flora, but did you know your V needs healthy flora too? Maintaining the pH balance and bacterial microbiome of your V can prevent common issues like UTIs and pungent discharge. Also, as many women know, their discharge can have a high enough acidic content to bleach the fabric of their underwear; so adding specific Lactobacilli strains to your diet can help balance your pH level to neutralise this effect. 

 

These Lactobacilli strains have been extensively studied specifically for their effects on V microbiota. Lactobacilli produces lactic acid, which keeps the V’s pH at a slightly acidic level to prevent the overgrowth of yeast, bad bacteria and other harmful pathogens

 

Cranberry Powder

As an antioxidant-rich superfruit, cranberries provide powerful shields against infection. Cranberry powder has long been used to combat UTIs, destroying the bad bacteria and flushing the bladder wall.  

 

Fructooligosaccharides (FOS) 

While the name might seem intimidating, fructooligosaccharides (FOS) is actually a very natural carbohydrate found in many plants. Garlic, onions, bananas and chicory roots are some of the natural sources for FOS, a low-calorie, naturally sweet fructose chain that is digested in the colon. As such, its durability through the digestive system makes it an ideal aid for issues like constipation and helps good bacteria grow in the gut

 

Inulin 

A soluble prebiotic fibre, inulin naturally occurs in plants. When consumed orally, it supports the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut

 

Whether you are young or old, paying attention to your V health is always important! Be sure to practise good hygiene, choose breathable underwear and nourish your body with the supplements it needs.
