What are flora probiotics?
We know you all already love your collagen, skin and gut health supplements…but you seem to be forgetting one VERY important part of your body. The vagina.
Our vaginas are often neglected because they’re hidden from the rest of the world. But although you might find it a little embarrassing to talk about, the health of your vagina is just as important as the health of the rest of you.
So, it’s time to start giving some love to this beautiful part of your body. That’s where flora probiotics come in.
What are flora probiotics?
You’ve likely heard of probiotics - the combination of good bacteria and yeast that are amazing for your gut and digestive system. While they’re usually taken in supplement form, they can also be found in foods, such as yoghurt, sauerkraut, tempeh, kimchi and kefir.
Flora probiotics, on the other hand, are a type of probiotic, specifically formulated to support vaginal health.
Your vagina contains millions of micro-organisms, otherwise known as flora. Keeping your vaginal flora in check is super important, especially if you want to avoid any trouble down there.
Benefits of flora probiotics
While we’ve long known the benefits that probiotics can have on the gut, research is now starting to show that probiotics can also help with vaginal health.
Improving vaginal health means you’re less likely to get a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, both of which occur when bad bacterias slay the good ones within your vagina. Infections like these two can lead to a range of symptoms that cause discomfort and disruption to your everyday life.
If you read our article on vaginal itching, you would have seen just how many other symptoms might arise if you aren’t giving your vagina some much-needed TLC. Not maintaining a healthy vagina may also lead to issues with your fertility or sex life.
On top of supporting vaginal and gut health, flora probiotics can assist in improving your immune system, brain and heart health, digestion, sleep and mood. With better digestion, also comes oh-so-glowy skin, and stronger hair and nails. Talk about an all-in-one supplement!
Which lactobacillus strains are good for vaginal health?

Arravite’s probiotic range
At Arravite, we’ve partnered with Centro Sperimentale del Latte (CSL) to produce our range of Probiotics Pro. Based in Italy, CSL is one of the most reputable manufacturers of probiotics in the world and has been a leader in probiotics manufacturing since 1872.
Our microflora probiotics range has been scientifically researched and clinically tested to support vaginal health, urinary tract health, maintain healthy microflora within the vagina, as well as relieve any symptoms of mild vaginitis.
Our two Women's Healthy Microflora Probiotic options come with six different target strains, which refers to the type of bacteria or yeast it contains. We have both the classic 5 billion CFU option, and a double strength option that includes 10 billion CFU. CFU stands for ‘Colony Forming Units,’ which refers to the number of bacteria in each dose.
Health benefits include improvement in your overall vaginal health, support of your urinary tract health, maintenance of vaginal microflora and relief of vaginitis symptoms.
Not only are all our Arravite probiotics Australian-made and owned, but they’re also vegan, non-GMO, dairy-free and gluten-free. And even better? They’re shelf-stable, meaning you don’t need to keep them in the fridge!
