Specific Probiotics for Genitourinary Infections

Normal bacterial flora differs substantially in different parts of the body. Research done over the last two decades has shown that two particular strains of lactobacillus – Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus reuteri are especially beneficial for preventing and treating genitourinary infections when administered intravaginally.

A more recent study found these same organism (1 capsules twice daily) to be beneficial in treating bacterial vaginosis a common and often difficult-to-treat vaginal infection. The study found that after 30 days of treatment the number of patients still having vaginosis was 0.
