Vita-Flora Health announced the worldwide introduction of BIO-V™, a newly-formulated probiotic supplement for women. BIO-V™ is the only product of its kind to use the BIO-tract® delivery system, which more effectively balances pH and flora in the vagina, essentially eliminating an entire range of women’s health issues.
“Bio-V is an all-natural breakthrough for women’s health,” says Beth Avedis, president and CEO of Vita-Flora Health, the parent company. “Women have suffered from yeast infections, bacterial vaginosis, feminine odor and urinary tract infections since time began. We are pleased to announce that this new formulation and delivery system will—finally—help prevent and eliminate these problems for millions of women.” Because the product works in the digestive tract, it is also a boon to colon health.
Avedis continues, “A growing body of research is establishing the powerful benefits of taking probiotics, but the stumbling block—for many brands—is that the amount of probiotics that actually make it through the digestive system are so minute, they are virtually ineffective.” In fact, the FTC filed a complaint* against Dannon (the manufacturer of Activia) for their misleading ads, which claimed that one serving a day was enough to produce the advertised result.**
“Without some kind of innovation, we’d be facing the same criticism,” says Avedis. Through years of research and trials, the BIO-tract® delivery system was developed, which encapsulates the live probiotics and protects them from gastric acid destruction. BIO-V™ is the only product of its kind to feature this technology, and was recently presented at the AAPS (American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists). The patented process also renders the product shelf-stable.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases claims that nearly 75% of adult American women have had at least one vaginal yeast infection in their lifetime, and 40-45% of those women have had two or more episodes. According to the CDC, nearly 30% of women between the ages of 14 and 49 have some form of bacterial vaginosis. The proliferation of douches, sprays, creams and perfumes to address the common complaint of “feeling unfresh” is a clear indicator of the vast sweep of the feminine-odor issue. Ironically, it is these very products which contribute to the pH imbalance and flora insufficiency that cause the problem in the first place, creating a frustrating cycle.
“We hope this is the beginning of the end for so many women who suffer from these problems,” says Avedis, who adds that there is a 110% guarantee of satisfaction on the initial purchase of BIO-V™.
