RepHresh Pro-B For Vaginal Issues

Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and L. reuteri RC-14 are in RepHresh Pro-B

RepHresh Pro-B is a probiotic supplement trademarked by Lil' Drug Store Products, Inc. that is advertised to balance yeast and bacteria to maintain feminine health. What this means is that it has been shown in clinical trials to help with bv (bacterial vaginosis), vaginal yeast infections and UTI (urinary tract infections).

How Does This Probiotic Supplement Work?

This probiotic supplement contains two patented lactic acid bacteria, Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri RC-14. These probiotic bacteria were shown in clinical trials to colonize the human vagina and significantly reduce the persistence of vaginal yeast infections and urinary tract infections. They also reduced bv when used by themselves or in addition to antibiotics.

What is the Difference Between RepHresh Pro-B and Fem-Dophilus?

There is no doubt that both probiotic supplements contain proper strains of lactic acid bacteria to benefit vaginal conditions since the two strains, L. rhamnosus GR-1 and L. reuteri RC-14, are patented strains. These patented strains are held by Chr. Hansen and are called "Urex" as the combination product used in clinical studies. Chr. Hansen therefore supplies the strains to be used in the products.

As I mentioned, the Pro-B product is sold by Lil' Drug Store Products, Inc. There website in my opinion is not transparent enough on what the ingredients are in their probiotic supplement. My health can be damaged if I take something I shouldn't, so I need to know what the ingredients are. Besides, everyone should know what is in their foods, drinks, medications, vaccines, and supplements, in my opinion.

Basically, the website says to take it orally and take one capsule daily. No mention of how many CFU are in it.

I checked several retailers that sell this product and found that one capsule contains:

  • 2.5 billion CFU of L. rhamnosus GR-1
  • 2.5 billion CFU of L. reuteri RC-14
  • Milk
  • Dextrose anhydrate
  • Gelatin (Beef allergy alert!)
  • Potato starch
  • Microcrystalline cellulose
  • Magnesium stearate
  • Titanium dioxide

Always check ingredients on anything before you take it!

You can notice from the ingredients lists that the two products are basically identical. My personal opinion is that quality reassurance to the consumer (you and me) from Fem-Dophilus is better than from the Pro-B supplement simply because information on Fem-Dophilus is more transparent.

There is no mention if RepHresh Pro-B is gluten-free. If none of the listed ingredients or the lack of stated gluten-free status are problems for you, then this is a good supplement to use for vaginal health.

If you would like help in determining which probiotic supplement is best for you, and/or how you can improve your vaginal and overall health, consider nutritional consultations with me.
