My Friend Flora capsules are specifically designed to support your vaginal flora. They contain 5 selected strains of bacteria that have been scientifically proven to to effectively reduce the risk of E.Coli bacteria colonisation.
For example, how they produce lactic acid effectively lowers the pH level in your vagina and bladder, creating a less desirable environment for E.coli bacteria. This then makes it harder for these bacteria to establish and multiply in both your vagina and bladder. At the same time, a healthy vaginal flora with lactobacilli and other "good" intestinal bacteria act like a protective shield and attach themselves to the mucous membranes in the vagina and bladder to avoid being flushed out. This creates a protective layer that leaves little or no chance for E. coli and other harmful bacteria to attach to the mucous membranes and settle there.
The lactic acid bacteria in our My Friend Flora capsules contain a powder mixture of 32 different fermented fruit and vegetable powders to give the probiotic strains a balanced nutrient basis for their growth. The calcium contained in the capsules also ensures that digestive enzymes can work better and thus provide the bacteria with more nutrients.
Additional pomegranate seed extract, with its high ellagic acid content, has also been shown in studies to inhibit the growth of staphylococcus aureus and Clostridium perfringens, which, along with E.coli bacteria, can also be the cause of bladder infections.
