If you are prone to yeast infections and candida, it is important to manage your microbial populations. According to Florida-based gastroenterologist Dr. Leonard Smith, “Allopathic medicine does a great job with anti-fungals on the seriously ill. However, when patients have low-grade recurrent Candida infections, they are treated with anti-fungal agents, but are offered nothing else to prevent recurrence.” While these anti-fungal drugs can effectively kill the Candida organism, unless you alter the conditions that resulted in the overgrowth, the yeast will usually return. In addition, when taking anti-fungal drugs, the body may eliminate them before they reach the colon; this allows Candida to survive in the lower part of your digestive tract.
The best way to boost your chances of avoiding yeast overgrowth, is to alter your diet and use supplements that support your body in its anti-Candida efforts. Taking supplemental probiotics in order to maintain the health of the digestive tract is crucial in helping rid the body of Candida.
Probiotic supplements help restore optimal digestive health, and are one of the first things required in order to bring back a healthy balance of beneficial bacteria. There are over 500 different types of bacteria in the digestive system. The two most prevalent in the vagina and urinary tract are Lactobacillus rhamnosus and Lactobacillus casei. Ultimate Flora VS contains therapeutic levels of these bacteria, mirroring the prevalence in the healthy vagina and urinary tract.
Ultimate Flora VS is formulated to help maintain a healthy balance of vaginal and urinary tract bacteria. Each capsule contains 45 billion live Lactobacillus cultures and 5 billion live Bifidobacteria, mirroring the prevalence of Lactobacilli and the lesser numbers of Bifidobacteria in the vagina. The 9 strains in Ultimate Flora VS formula were chosen for their prevalence in a healthy vagina and urinary tract.
Ultimate Flora VS includes 9 strains of probiotics which are contained in water based enteric coated vegetable capsules. This coating protects the probiotics from the acidic environment in the stomach.

I highly recommend this product. I had been having a problem down there related to a long-term yeast infection - the skin was cracking. It was painful and everything I had tried had done nothing, including taking other kinds of probiotics for years. Then I tried this one. Day 3-5, I had severe irritation down there, and almost stopped taking it - but then I learned that this can be due to yeast dye-off (the yeast produces irritating chemicals as it dies). I kept on and the irritation went away. Now, after one month, the problem with the cracks is gone - at least, it is gone if I am careful not to cause irritation by using soap, etc. Even if my problem is not 100% gone I am very grateful to this product for at least making it manageable for me. I was in such discomfort before, and this product has really improved the health of my female area. I will certainly keep buying this regardless of the high cost. It's worth it for me.
