Upsher-Smith launches probiotic for women

Upsher-Smith Laboratories Inc. announced the nationwide launch of Provella™, a unique probiotic dietary supplement specifically designed for women to promote digestive, feminine and immune health. Provella helps restore and maintain balance of good bacteria to support digestive and vaginal health. Taken once-daily by mouth, Provella tablets contain a proprietary blend of six bacteria strains that include: Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus reuteri and Bifidobacterium bifidum.

Provella is available without a prescription behind the pharmacy counter at retail pharmacies nationwide and online at Consumers can also ask any local pharmacist to order Provella using List Number 0245-1060-30.

“With the introduction of Provella, we’re pleased to offer women a probiotic supplement that contains a unique blend of beneficial bacteria to promote digestive, feminine and immune health,” said Gregory Gilmet, MD, MPH, senior medical director, medical affairs, Upsher-Smith Laboratories Inc. “As our portfolio of women’s products continues to expand, so does our commitment to helping women achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.”

The patented controlled-release technology in Provella helps protect its good bacteria from harsh stomach acid and is designed to help ensure that active bacteria get to the intestines where they can begin working. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), good bacteria that normally reside in the intestines may help the body defend itself against infection and maintain proper digestive health.
