What Probiotics Can Do For You Down There

 There’s a lot of information going around about what probiotics can do for your gut. But, have you ever thought about what it can do for you down there? Yup! More than keeping your gut healthy and strong, probiotics can also do wonders for your vaginal health. The vaginal microbiome is an extremely complex system - brimming with bacteria and other microorganisms. But, for such an intricate and delicate system, the topic of vaginal health is seldom explored. It’s about time that we start taking charge when it comes to our health down there! Here at Cyrixs, we believe in maintaining the overall health of our bodies, so why should we exclude the vagina? 

The Yeast Infection

The dreaded yeast infection - symptoms include itching and irritation, redness and swelling, and even a burning sensation. Sounds uncomfortable, right? But, it’s actually very common! It’s estimated that three out of four women will experience a yeast infection in their lifetime. In fact, many women experience it twice! A yeast infection is a product of a disruption in your vaginal microbiome. Your vagina naturally contains a balanced mixture of yeast - including candida and bacteria. Candida is a type of fungus that naturally occurs in the vagina, when there’s an overgrowth, it results in candidiasis AKA a yeast infection.  

What Causes a Yeast Infection?  

 Several different factors can lead to a yeast infection. If you have diabetes and it’s difficult for you to process sugar, it could lead to a sugar increase in the moist linings of the vagina and create a place for yeast to grow. Moreover, taking antibiotics can kill off the good bacteria living in the vagina, causing an imbalance in the vaginal microbiome. Also, although it’s not considered a sexually transmitted infection, it could be passed on during sex.  

How Can Probiotics Help?  

Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria. They help maintain the microorganisms that live in your body - keeping your ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria in check. In the past few years, research has indicated that probiotics can help assist in the balancing of the vagina’s pH levels In fact, many women have success in preventing and treating yeast infections when eating probiotics or taking a probiotic supplement. Probiotic foods include, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, miso, and more. Ingesting a healthy amount of probiotics, while taking care of yourself down there (avoiding scented feminine products, sticking to cotton underwear, etc.) can do wonders for preventing a yeast infection.
