How does FloraFemme work, and how do I use it?
FloraFemme has been specifically designed to be placed directly in the vagina, where it can work the fastest, and most effectively. Who wants to wait for days for something to work when you're suffering?
At the first sign of unpleasant odor, itching or discharge, just insert one (1) capsule suppository high up in the vagina for six consecutive nights, at bedtime. To experience the full benefits of FloraFemme, be sure to use all six capsules. If necessary, treatment can be safely prolonged or repeated for stubborn conditions. FloraFemme works quickly to repopulate your delicate microflora and restore the proper pH balance. (Most women will experience immediate relief.) This will inhibit pathogens and "bad" bacteria and fungi from taking over, which is what causes problems like yeast infections, BV, odor and itching. Before you know it, you'll be left feeling clean and fresh-smelling!
How is a vaginal suppository better than a doctor's prescription?
Antibiotics, anti-fungal medications, and other traditional treatments are not considered effective for all vaginal problems, and most bacteria and yeast are highly resistant now because of antibiotic overuse. Therefore, vaginal infections can recur, and are not easily treated. Probiotics, however, are shown to be extremely safe and effective in restoring the proper bacterial/yeast balance within the vagina. Oral probiotics are wonderful, and have their place, but unfortunately they take too much time to make their way through your GI tract, where they can be destroyed by stomach acid and the digestive process. The results can be iffy.
Why is FloraFemme better than other women's probiotics?
First, it's by far the most potent formula available — it's more than 10 times the strength of any other women's probiotic supplement. The "super-strains" in FloraFemme are top-shelf probiotics which are not all available in other products. It works much faster as a result, and requires far fewer applications. Because it works faster and so much more effectively, you need less and spend less in the long run. It's faster, cheaper and better. Oh, and it's all-natural and vegan-friendly. What more could you want?
Do I have to take it forever?
Many women can use one course of FloraFemme and they're done! For some women — depending upon your diet, water intake and hereditary susceptibility — 1 - 2 capsules each month, preferably right after your period (when your vaginal pH is highly alkaline) will help to keep an optimal balance. Others just use it on an as-needed basis.
What's in FloraFemme?
FloraFemme is vaginal-specific formula comprised of the most potent probiotic strains available:
Don't believe a word we say ... Google these names and you will find out for yourself. You can also search any of these terms at this U.S. government website: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/.
FloraFemme contains more than 72 billion CFUs (Colony-Forming Units) per capsule, more than any other product of its kind. (Most competitors' products have 1-5 billion CFUs.) It has a shelf life of two years or more at room temperature. No refrigeration is required, but it's a good idea as a precaution.
FloraFemme is a 100% natural, gentle way to help alleviate the conditions that cause vaginal odor and itching.
Why are "super strains" so great?
It is well documented in scientific literature (see the link above) that the "super-strains" in FloraFemme can kill bacteria and yeast species in the course of their production of lactic acid and hydrogen peroxide. The probiotics in FloraFemme survive —and thrive — in the hostile vaginal environment so that they can re-colonize your flora with good, essential bacteria. Bad out, good in: that's what makes you feel good and smell fresh.
Is your manufacturing facility FDA-approved?
Yes! FloraFemme is manufactured at one of the country's top facilities, which is certified to the strictest standards of GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), QAI (Quality Assurance Institute-Certified Organic) and TGA (Australia's FDA equivalent). FloraFemme is 100% made in the USA.
Why does it cost so much per bottle?
When you break it down, FloraFemme is MUCH less expensive than other brands because it only takes a few capsules to work, and you don't have to continually buy more to maintain good vaginal health. FloraFemme works much faster and costs a lot less in the long run!
