A few months ago I had an issue with my eyes related to Sjögren’s syndrome. My doctor thought it was an eye infection so he prescribed a simple antibiotic eye drop and sent me on my merry way. A week later both my eyes were hurting like the dickens so I went to see my eye doctor who said my eyes were just dry and irritated. He prescribed steroid eye drops, told me to tough it out and sent me packin’. Three days later I was in the emergency room at midnight. I won’t go into the disgusting details, and they are gross but I will tell you that both of my tear ducts were infected and blocked. I was placed on a powerful antibiotic which has wrecked havoc on my system and as it turns out I will be having major surgery in October to reconstruct both tear ducts. When I tell you I was in dire need of a probiotic that is an understatement!
I usually don’t go into such personal detail with my readers but I think this is important to share. For over a month I suffered with the worst vaginal yeast infection I’ve ever had. Two courses of OTC nightly treatment creams did almost nothing to cure the itching, burning and pain. I was at my wits end. I had purchased another box of treatment to use on my doctors advice when my bottle of Provella Probiotic Dietary Supplement arrived courtesy of my friends at Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Provella for review.
I’m a firm believer in probiotics which are live microorganisms (in most cases, bacteria) taken for health benefits. Probiotics vary on the type you purchase and what you use them for. I’ve used them to improve my oral and digestive health but I’ve never seen a probiotic made especially for women which promotes digestive, feminine and immune health* until I found Provella.
Provella Probiotic Dietary Supplement is specifically designed for women.*
Provella contains a proprietary blend of six bacterial strains chosen specifically for maximum benefit to women to support digestive and vaginal health and native flora.* The strains included are:
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus fermentum
- Lactobacillus reuteri
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
A major threat to probiotic bacteria is stomach acid. Provella is formulated using a patented controlled-release technology that helps protect the probiotics from harsh stomach acid and ensure that live organisms reach the intestines.
I started taking the Provella Probiotic Dietary Supplement immediately and within two days the symptoms of the yeast infection were significantly improved. Within the week the infection was gone and has not returned. What a huge relief. The box of over-the-counter treatment cream sits on the counter unopened.
Gluten-free, vegetarian Provella Probiotic Dietary Supplement is an easy to swallow pill that is taken once daily by mouth with or without food. They are tasteless and odorless and psst, guys can take Provella because the bacteria in Provella will support their digestive and immune health too!
