Menopause causes changes in the body’s hormonal activity

Certain hormonal changes occur in the body as women reach a certain age. The period of time when the hormone production by the ovaries declines and eventually stops is called menopause. Due to menopause, menstrual periods stop permanently and a woman will no longer be able to have children. Menopause usually occurs between the ages of 45–60.

Menopause can cause uncomfortable changes in a woman’s bodily functions as the amount of estrogen produced by the ovaries starts to decline. Hot flashes, excess sweating, vaginal dryness, and mood change are examples of these.

Lactic acid bacteria and cranberries for a healthy intimate area

Lactic acid bacteria are known to balance the bacteria not only in the gut but also in the intimate area. Lactic acid bacteria also affect the bacterial balance of the vagina and the urinary tract. Low amount of lactobacilli and a reduced vaginal acidity can lead to other vaginal bacteria to grow to excess. This can lead to bacterial vaginosis, a state of disturbed bacterial composition of the vaginal bacterial flora. Bacterial vaginosis can cause unpleasant smell and itching but doesn’t cause inflammation.

Cranberry has been used to protect the urinary tract and the mucous membranes of the intimate area long before antibiotics were invented. Cranberry contains proanthocyanidins (PAC), a type of flavonoids, which prevent the harmful bacteria from sticking to the walls of the urinary tract.

You can find lactic acid bacteria supplements from our selection which help to keep your intimate area healthy.
