A once-daily probiotic designed just for women. With 50 Billion CFUs delayed-release capsules, organic prebiotics and a patented shelf-stable bottle Physician's Choice women's probiotic provides ideal digestive, immune, and vaginal health support.

Women's Probiotic & Prebiotic

Physician's Choice women's probiotic is made with a probiotic - prebiotic combination. Each serving contains 7 strains with 50 billion CFU's of probiotics, 3 organic prebiotics, D-mannose and clinically proven Pacran®

Probiotics are made with "live cultures" these are living healthy bacteria that can help balance the "good" and "bad" bacteria in your body. Probiotics survive off eating prebiotics,

Just like if you don’t get enough food, if your probiotics don’t get enough food/prebiotics, they’ll slowly starve. And then they’ll die.

Many of today's probiotic supplements are ineffective, only 5% of probiotic products contain prebiotics as well!

This means only 5 in every 100 probiotic supplements contain the food probiotics need to survive. In other words, the probiotics are doomed to fail from the start.

The 3 Organic Prebiotics

Jerusalem Artichoke Root: This special sunflower nourishes probiotics like no other. In one study, Jerusalem artichoke root significantly improved the growth of Bifidobacterium bifidum- a gut-friendly bacteria- versus a leading “high performing” prebiotic.13

What causes the growth of helpful bacteria? It’s the fructans in prebiotics— special dietary fibers that probiotics feast on! And the Jerusalem artichoke root is one of the most fructan-dense plants on earth. 

FibregumTM Bio: Fibregum Bio is a potent, patent-pending dietary fiber from the acacia tree. Of course, FibregumTM Bio helps improve gut health by nourishing healthy bacteria. But it also strengthens your gut by restoring the microscopic spaces between the cells lining your digestive tract!

Chicory Root powder: Chicory root is a common prebiotic because it’s so effective. Chicory root is rich in inulin, another dietary fiber in foods like bananas, onions, and garlic. And it’s the inulin that helps gut-friendly probiotics like the 10 strains in 60 Billion Probiotic work so well.  

Inulin feeds probiotics so they can overpower and kick out bad bacteria in your gut. This helps you relieve the bloating, gas, and discomfort from an overgrowth of bad bacteria!

The 7 Probiotic Strains

Lactobacillus plantarum: Lactobacillus plantarum is “balancer” in your gut. First, it balances the good and bad bacteria (your “microflora”) in you gut. Second, it balances your bowel activity, making you more regular. And third, it balances the amount of foreign material that can enter your gut, since L. plantarum acts like a bodyguard for the cells along your stomach wall

Lactobacillus paracasei: Lactobacillus paracasei defends your digestive tract from potentially dangerous bacteria.7 L. paracasei works inside your intestinal tract to support a healthy immune system. It actually helps your immune-building by making T-helper cells, which regulate immune response. Plus, L. paracasei secretes a protective antibody that strengthens your intestine’s immunity to bad bacteria.8

Lactobacillus casei: Lactobacillus casei is another superstar in your digestive tract. With L. casei you get the best of both worlds: less constipation and diarrhea. In one study, participants with chronic diarrhea either took l. casei over a 21-day period, or a placebo. Compared to the placebo group, the l. casei group had far less diarrheal episodes, even after 15 days of stopping the l. casei supplementation!6

Lactobacillus gasseri: L. Gasseri is often referred to as the "weight loss probiotic strain" Lactobacillus gasseri has been used traditionally to help convert the body's fat storage into energy. This effect may be tied to an effect of L. gasseri on the hormone leptin. Leptin is sometimes referred to as "the satiety hormone" because it helps control the sensations of hunger and fullness to curb your appetite while boosting metabolism.

Lactobacillus acidophilus: 

Lactobacillus acidophilus is probably the most well-studied probiotic strain on earth. This strain increases acetic, butyric, and propionic acids, all important for healthy digestion. Butyric acid in particular regulates your digestive tract— making you more “regular”, reducing abdominal pains, and killing bad bacteria that upset your stomach!4

  1. acidophilus can also increase the number of healthy bacteria in your gut. Not only that, but l. acidophilus also keeps your intestinal lining thick and strong.5

Bifidobacterium lactis (Bl-04): Bifidobacterium lactis defends your intestines from getting overwhelmed with bad bacteria! Studies show B. lactis improves gastrointestinal health by strengthening your intestinal lining. And a stronger intestinal lining means less chance of harmful molecules seeping through!10

 D. Mannose Pure Concentrate 

D-mannose between 11-50 times stronger than cranberry juice. D-Mannose is amazingly effective and clinically proven for the treatment of urinary tract infections caused by E. coli bacteria (up to 90% of UTIs), even infections that keep recurring (30 to 50% of infections), and which don't respond to numerous antibiotics. D-mannose is effective because it attaches to E. coli bacteria, and prevents them from attaching to the walls of the urinary tract. Most UTIs are caused by E. coli that live harmlessly in the gut. However, when shed in the feces, the bacteria can spread to the opening of the urinary tract and up to the bladder, where they can cause problems.

      Each stage of product journey is documented and verified from harvesting to packaging, guaranteeing the safest, most effective product possible.

      Women’s Probiotic by Physician’s Choice is a dietary supplement that was specifically designed to enhance vaginal, urinary, and digestive health in women. It consists of probiotics and prebiotics that work together to create an environment in which healthy bacteria can thrive and harmful bacteria are destroyed. Probiotics are friendly bacteria that support various biological processes, while prebiotics provide nutrients for probiotics, thereby helping them grow faster than harmful bacteria.

      The overgrowth of harmful bacteria in the digestive or urinary tract is associated with bacterial infections that include bacterial vaginosis and urinary tract infections (UTIs) [1, 2]. An internal environment that contains a higher number of probiotics than harmful bacteria helps sustain good health and overall well-being.

      Probiotics are measured in terms of colony-forming units or CFUs and this refers to the number of beneficial bacteria. Women’s Probiotics contains 50 Billion CFUs of probiotics such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus paracasei, Lactobacillus plantarum, and Bifidobacterium lactis. This large number ensures that good bacteria will outnumber bad bacteria that try to enter the body.

      This supplement also contains nutrient-rich prebiotics such as Gum Arabic, Chicory root powder, and Jerusalem artichoke, which provide food for the probiotics. Prebiotics are essential for the proper growth of healthy bacteria. The prebiotic blend that has been included in this supplement is associated with heightened probiotic activity that enhances digestive health by supporting regular bowel movements as well as targeting irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, and constipation [3, 4].

      Furthermore, this combination of probiotics and prebiotics enhances the body’s natural defenses against bacteria and fungi, targets gut inflammation, and helps strengthen the immune system [5]. The probiotics in this supplement even promote the breakdown and removal of bad cholesterol from the body. They also target lactose intolerance by digesting the lactose in dairy products [6-8] Another active ingredient in Women’s Probiotic is D-mannose, which is a form of sugar found in fruits that is similar to glucose. Supplementation with D-mannose has been shown to disrupt the development of UTIs in women due to its ability to prevent bacteria from attaching to cells in the urinary tract [9]. More specifically, D-mannose binds to healthy cells and the lining of the urinary tract, thereby blocking harmful bacteria that try to enter and attach themselves to this internal environment. This simple sugar even has a similar structure to certain bacteria, which makes it a strong competitor for harmful bacteria that would otherwise attach and damage healthy cells in the urinary tract [9]. D-mannose has also been shown to be beneficial for women who frequently suffer from UTIs [10], making it a key ingredient for optimal female health.

      Cranberry is another ingredient that is well-known for its ability to promote urinary tract health by blocking pathogens from attaching to urinary cells. It also promotes the optimal vaginal pH [11, 12]. This is because cranberries are a rich source of antioxidants and acidic substances that stop bacteria from adhering to the wall of the bladder [12]. Due to these benefits, cranberry has also been added to this supplement.

      The ingredients in Women’s Probiotic have been specially packaged in delayed release (DR) acid- resistant veggie capsules that resist degradation by gastric acids, thereby allowing the potent, undigested form of each active ingredient to be transported to where it is needed the most. One capsule a day is all you need to experience improved vaginal and digestive health.

      So far I’m UTI free!

      I tried this probiotic based on other reviews. I get frequent UTIs and this has so far kept them away. My dog festoon is better also. Worth the price.
