Lallemand Health Solutions takes the opportunity of the world’s leading Pharma event to launch its new portfolio of custom-made probiotic solutions for overall women’s health. This portfolio consists of a unique range of probiotic strains and formulation know-how to design specific solutions within three major areas: feminine health, everyday women’s health and age-specific women’s health.
Women express specific health and well-being concerns at each stage of their lifecycle, such as digestive discomfort or changes in mood. Most of these issues have one parameter in common: They can be linked to endogenous microfloras. As a natural and well-recognized way to help maintain and restore the digestive and vaginal microfloras, probiotics appear as good candidates to support women’s health in a natural way.
Lallemand Health Solutions has one of the largest portfolios of documented probiotic strains, whose modes of action are constantly documented thanks to solid R&D efforts in this area, from genomic identification to clinical studies. By screening this collection, scientists have selected a range of strains, mainly of the Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria species, whose properties and modes of action are particularly relevant to support different aspects of women’s health, backed by clinical data. This unique range of probiotic strains can be formulated into adapted formats such as: capsules (oral or vaginal), convenient orodispersible sticks for active women, sachets to dissolve in drinks or food etc.
Potential applications cover three major areas:
Feminine health: The vaginal microflora plays an essential role in feminine health. Specific probiotics of the Lactobacillus species from Lallemand Health Solutions’ portfolio can help keep microflora in balance. Probiotics have no side effects and don’t eliminate other beneficial bacteria.
Everyday women’s health: Hormone fluctuations during the menstrual cycle are well-recognized parameters impacting women’s general health and wellness. Three health areas are particularly concerned, and recognized targets for probiotics: gastrointestinal discomfort, immunity and mood.
Age-specific health: At each stage of their life, women experiment specific health and well-being concerns linked to hormonal and physiological changes. Hence, probiotic strains have been selected to address the specific issues of the child-bearing age, pregnancy and menopause.
