When is it recommended ?
The permeability between intestinal and urogenital microbiota is no longer in question and lactobacilli can cross from one to the other.
Lactobacillus acidophilus colonise many organisms and not just the human body! They are contained in fermented foods such as yoghurt, cheese and fermented vegetables including cabbage, or even sourdough bread. Fermented milk is widely available.
Maternal milk supplies Lactobacillus gasseri, the effects of which on intestinal and vaginal flora balance have been studied since the 1980s.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG has the astonishing ability to survive in the acid environments of the stomach and intestine, which they cross like nomads while restoring the balance between the various species of bacteria.
Lactobacillus fermentum is also resistant to acid attack from the stomach acid and bile. It can therefore interconnect intestinal microbiota and participate in the subtle harmony within the microbiome.
