Supplements are used to support a healthy lifestyle and to complete the intake of certain nutrients, while taking individual needs into account. It is good to understand that many factors affect how the nutrients are absorbed in the body. The condition of the gut, the chemical properties of the nutrients and other compounds in the consumed food can either increase or decrease the absorption of certain nutrients in the gut.

Lacto Seven – unique consistency
The Finnish lactic acid bacteria supplement Lacto Seven contains seven different freeze-dried, protected and natural lactic acid bacterial strains from Lactobacillus-, Bifidobacterium- and Streptococcus bacterial families. The functionality and safety of these carefully selected bacterial strains has been confirmed in several different studies.
The consistency of the product that contains seven bacterial strains is very diverse. In order for a lactic acid bacteria product to be beneficial, it needs to contain enough live bacteria. That is why one Lacto Seven tablet contains a billion live lactic acid bacteria at the moment of manufacture. In addition the lactic acid bacteria in Lacto Seven have a special Bio-Support™ protection which keeps the bacteria alive and functional until they enter the gut.
The Lacto Seven lactic acid bacteria contains vitamin D which maintains the immune system.

Biotin Collagen Skin Beauty (Vitabalans Lady)
Collagen is a structural protein in the skin which together with elastin and hyaluronic acid responds to the maintenance of the skin’s firmness, elasticity and moisture. The significance of collagen as maintaining the firmness of the skin is significant since 80 % of the skin’s dry weight is collagen. The formation and amount of collagen in the skin starts to decline starting from the age of 30 after which about 1–2 % of collagen is lost per year.
Biotin Collagen contains the Verisol® P collagen which has been proven to be efficient in two clinical studies. The studies showed that taking 2,5 grams of the Verisol® P collagen a day for four weeks significantly increased the elasticity of the skin and firmed and smoothed wrinkles around the eyes. When the use of the Verisol® P collagen was continued for another four weeks the elasticity of the skin further increased and the depth of the wrinkles evened out by an average of 20 % – at best even 50 % – compared to the initial state. The changes were visible even for another four weeks after stopping the use of the collagen. Women who participated in the study were 35–65 years old. The effects of the collagen were most visible on the skin of the women over 50. The firming effect of the Verisol® P collagen is based on the fact that the Verisol® P collagen peptides increase the skin’s own production of elastin.
Biotin Collagen also contains other active ingredients important for the skin which boost the effect of collagen, support the wellbeing of the skin and support the maintenance of the moisture and firmness of the skin. A significant amount of hyaluronic acid helps to balance the skin’s natural loss of hyaluronic acid and moisturizes the skin from within. Biotin and zinc help to maintain the skin’s wellbeing and vitamin C increases the skin’s own production of collagen.

Cranberry Strong Natural Defence (Vitabalans Lady)
Nature’s own vitamin bomb cranberry is known for its many useful effects. People have used cranberries for maintaining their health for centuries. Cranberry is particularly known for maintaining the wellbeing of the urinary tract and therefore especially many women are familiar with cranberry.
Lactic acid bacteria are a part of the normal microbiome in the intimate area. The amount of these bacteria in the areas around the vagina and urinary tract can be increased by taking lactic acid bacteria because bacteria is transferred from the gut to the intimate area via the anus. When the natural microbiome of the intimate area is balanced there is less space for unfamiliar bacteria.
Cranberry Strong contains all the effective ingredients of cranberry, lactic acid bacteria and vitamin C in the same capsule. The product is suitable for women of all ages, including pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding.
Gynolacta Intim Care (Vitabalans Lady)
The vagina is naturally an acidic environment with a low pH. The acidity is due to lactic acid which is produced by the lactic acid bacteria in the vagina. The acidic environment protects the vagina by restraining the growth of other bacteria and yeast and by preventing the growth of pathogens in the vagina.
The acidity of the vagina decreases if the amount of lactic acid bacteria decreases. It causes the overgrowth of other bacteria and leads to a disruption in the bacterial balance, also known as bacterial vaginosis. The most common symptom is a profuse vaginal discharge which has an unpleasant smell and which is milky and grayish in color. Inflammation is usually not involved. The disturbance of the bacterial balance and its symptoms are common for women of all ages. Predisposing factors include periods, intercourse, antibiotics and pregnancy.
Natural lactic acid bacteria strengthens and restores the acidity of the vagina which maintains the normal microbiome in the vagina and prevents disturbances in the bacterial balance.
The Gynolacta vaginal tablet maintains and restores the natural acidity of the vagina. Gynolacta is suitable for use even during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Get to know the package information before use.
Gynolacta is a medical device with EC-certification.
Beauty Omega-7 Nourishment for Skin (Vitabalans Lady)
Dry skin and mucous membranes are common wintertime nuisances. The skin can scale due to dryness also in the summer especially if it is burned in the sun. Dry skin and mucous membranes should be provided moisture both internally as well as externally.
The Beauty Omega 7 capsules combine the good fatty acids of sea buckthorn pulp oil and evening primrose oil. The diverse composition is completed by zinc which is important for the skin, pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) and vitamin E which functions as antioxidant.
The nutritious sea buckthorn is famous for its rare omega-7 fatty acids. There are plenty of omega 7 fatty acids particularly in the pulp of the sea buckthorn which is why the Beauty Omega 7 capsules contain the high quality oil pressed from the soft berry part of the sea buckthorn. The seed oil of evening primrose is an excellent source of omega-6 fatty acids and especially gamma linoleic acid (GLA).
The unique combination of sea buckthorn and evening primrose oils together with zinc, pantothenic acid and vitamin E are particularly good for dry skin and mucous membranes. Zinc supports the wellbeing of the skin and vitamin E functions as antioxidant, preventing the cells from oxidative stress.
