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 drugstore.com. 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.
