Vaginal flora makes the most important natural protection of women urogenital infections. It is composed of “good” microorganisms, including lactobacilli dominate, creating unfavorable conditions for the growth and development of pathogens.
In newborns vaginal flora is sterile, or very soon after birth inhabited by different strains of microorganisms, such as staphylococci, streptococci, E. coli and lactobacilli. All the micro-organisms living in line with each other and maintain the health of the vaginal mucosa, with a slightly acidic pH of between 4 and 4.5, and protects against pathogenic bacteria or fungi.
Imbalance of vaginal microflora opens the way for the development of urogenital infections
Exposure to stress, frequent change of partners, use of antibiotics, local contraceptive spermicides, aggressive hygiene, hormonal changes in menopause, pregnancy, and the presence of diabetes, impaired immunity as well as other factors, can reduce the quality of the vaginal microflora. Although the imbalance of vaginal microflora is not a disease, opens the way for the development of urogenital infections, and frequent infections are associated with the development of urological diseases.
Worldwide, about 300 million women a year are diagnosed with some urogenital infections, and only 30-40% of women have a healthy vaginal flora. The women, at any age, at risk of urogenital infections. Usually there is a bacterial vaginosis, vaginal candidiasis or trichomoniasis.
By the 19th year, every fourth girl has problems with vaginal discharge. The incidence of bacterial vaginosis in women who did not have a ratio of 18%, while in the sexually active women is about 28%.
Pregnant women, as a particularly vulnerable group, have increased risk of repeated urogenital infections, which can contribute to the development of complications or premature birth. Therefore, it is very important that women in this period of his life maintains healthy vaginal microflora as a natural defense against genital infections.
Women of childbearing age often have a disrupted vaginal flora, which contributes to the repetition of infections and complications, including the development of infertility.
In postmenopausal women have thinned the vaginal mucosa and reduced amount of protective substances and acid-producing lactobacilli to protect. The consequence of urogenital infections are common to a series of subjective unpleasant problems, especially if the secondary infection develops.
Any inflammation of the urogenital tract requires a gynecological examination, treatment and a lot of patience, but with the proper approach is not an unsolvable problem. The usual treatment of bacterial vaginosis appropriate medication is very effective, but the disease returns because of disturbed microflora. Bacterial vaginosis is repeated in 15-30% of cases already in the first three months after treatment, and after a long period of almost 50% of women have the same symptoms. With treatment of acute infection, it is important to recover the vaginal flora.
Preserving the balance of vaginal microflora is extremely important for the treatment and prevention of vaginal infections
The simplest, and also the most effective means to restore the vaginal flora is to raise the amount of lactobacilli oral probiokulturama. At the same time, technology is making capsules must protect microorganisms while passing through the digestive system and probiotic strains must be selected to the effect that we want to get. Therefore probiokulturu should carefully select and use long enough to stabilize vaginal flora and also help in preventing repeat infections.
Research has shown that a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus rhamnosus in a capsule form, by mouth, very efficiently establish and maintain the vaginal microflora balance and reduces the incidence of recurrent infections. Oral taking these probiokulture simply and conveniently any age women. In particular it is acceptable for pregnant women and girls in whom the treatment should not be performed with conventional therapy.
The combination of probiotics and cranberry united in the fight against vaginal infections
A common cause of bacterial vaginosis is Escherichia coli. Cranberry, thanks proantocijanima type A, inhibits the binding of the bacteria to the mucous membranes of the urogenital system and thus prevents the development of infection, while probiotic bacteria restore vaginal microflora and its metabolic products maintain the acidic pH of the vaginal secretions and vaginal environment make it inappropriate for the development of pathogenic microorganisms.
Oral preparations based probiotics are recommended in recurrent vaginal infections in weakened immune system, and following antibiotic therapy or other drugs that affect the quality of the vaginal microflora.
Responsible sexual behavior and orderly life and hygiene habits are the basis of preserving the intimate health of women, and probiotics that contain specific strains of lactobacilli are an indispensable aid in these efforts.
How Are urinary tract infections (UTI)?
Did you know that urinary tract infections, respiratory later, represent the second most common infection? Studies have demonstrated that the causative agents of urinary tract infections in the highest percentage come from the colon, the bacteria E. coli, including.
Symptoms of urinary tract infections are:
Prevention, treatment, therapy
The most effective treatment of urinary tract infections is shown a combination of probiotics and antibiotics. Antibiotics are used in the first treatment stage. Suppress the growth and reproduction of microorganisms. In the second phase of treatment, we recommend the use of oral probiotics. Oral probiotics enable the establishment of normal intestinal and vaginal microflora and prevent relapse of fungal and bacterial infections.
Probiotics, the good bacteria, reduce the concentration of pathogens in the lower digestive tract tract partitions
Previously we mentioned that the majority of causes of urinary and vaginal infections comes from the colon. Simply cross the lining of the perineum, come to the vaginal mucosa and cause vaginal infections, and through the urethra coming into the bladder and cause urinary infection.
Probiotics, the good bacteria, in particular strains which inhabit the gastrointestinal tract of the lower partition (L.rhamnosus, L.acidophilus, L.rheuteri), the oral application, pass through the entire digestive tract and reducing the amount of pathogenic microorganisms in the large intestine.
How probiotics work?
Probiotics, even though applied in the form of pharmaceutical forms (tablets, capsules, powders) are live bacteria, lyophilization is processed by a special technique, so that all of their properties remain preserved. If administered orally, probiotics exert their effect on the mucous membranes of the digestive tract, so do not go into the systemic circulation. Bind to the mucosa, proliferate, colonize, creating a physical barrier to the mucosa of alimentary tract which prevents the pathogenic Bacteria bind and retain. In addition, living microorganisms provide metabolic products (lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, acetic acid) to make the pass colon acidic and unsuitable for the survival of pathogenic bacteria.
Pathogenic bacteria, including E. coli, due to higher concentrations of probiotic bacteria leave the thick pipe, and thus the concentration of urinary pathogens and vaginal infections significantly reduced.
Cranberry and probiotics in their activities complement
Numerous clinical studies have confirmed the beneficial effects of combinations of probiotics and cranberry in the prevention and treatment of infections of the urogenital tract. Cranberry contains the active ingredient, type A proanthocyanidin, which exhibits anti-adhesive properties. Binding the fimbriae of E. coli bacteria and preventing its binding to the mucosa of the urinary tract. Since proanthocyanidins absorbed from the digestive tract and are excreted in the urine, its effects can manifest in the bladder where urine retention longest.
Therefore, probiotics exert their effect on the mucous membranes of the digestive tract by creating a physical barrier to bind pathogens and their metabolic products create an acidic environment hostile to life pathogenic bacteria, while proanthocyanidins type A from cranberries to its anti-adhesive properties prevent binding and retention of E. coli.
Recommendations for preventing urogenital tract infections
Repeated and prolonged exposure to UV radiation, hormonal changes (pregnancy, contraceptives, menopause), causing inadequate cosmetics and perfume, as well as inflammation of the skin (acne, etc.), Can lead to reddening of the skin, skin irritation and increased production of melanin pigment being manifested by the appearance of dark spots on the skin, hyperpigmentation.
The pigment melanin can be disposed in the surface layer of skin, the epidermis and the deeper layer, the dermis, of which depends on the effectiveness and intensity of treatment of aesthetic problems. The most common forms hiperpigmenacija are: age spots, freckles and melasma.
Age spots are aesthetic anomaly that occurs in light skin types.

Age spots are most common on areas of the body exposed to the sun (upper side of the hands, forearms, face, cleavage).
The sunspots or efelide also belong to the aesthetic anomalies. The most commonly occur in people or bright red hair and pale skin. They are found in the nose, cheeks and forehead and rarely after cleavage, shoulders and upper arms, and appeared in early childhood. Efelide inherited. Usually the summer more pronounced due to the influence of UV radiation, while the paler in winter or even invisible.
Melasma is frequently updated pigmenatacije related to pregnancy, and simultaneous exposure to sunlight without protection from UV rays. In addition to pregnancy melasma can occur when taking the contraceptive pill and some other medications.
Cosmetic preparations containing the essential oils and substances which may act as a photosensitizer (in particular substance of plant origin), and after the application can sunlight cause hyperpigmentation. Perfumes can also cause hyperpigmentation on fotoeksponiranim areas and can connect them with pigmentation on the edges of the face and neck and area around the ears where most often and thicknesses.

Perfect therapy in the treatment of hyperpigmentation do not exist and it is common to use the cream for a long time in order to achieve appropriate results. If the hyperpigmentation is only in the epidermis, the surface layer of the skin, it is easier to treat and faster response patients. If pigmentation surgery deeper layers of the skin, the treatment is likely to last longer and will need several alternative forms of treatment.
In the treatment of hyperpigmentation compositions are used for bleaching with different active substances (retinoic acid, azelaic acid, kojic acid, hydroquinone and arbutin and vitamin C). In dermatological practices for therapeutic purposes can be used in chemical peels, cryotherapy, microdermabrasion skin, and laser therapy. With all of these treatments is very important strong protection from the sun, and people who are prone to hyperpigmentation must use photoprotection throughout the year.

In addition, the most valuable ingredient laktokina activated signaling molecules – cytokines. Activated cytokines in contact with skin cells, accelerate the activity of cells and allows skin cells to respond quickly and efficiently to changes in the external environment and significantly accelerate their regenerative ability.
Laktokin reduces melanin production, accelerates regenerative ability of skin cells and successfully removes hyperpigmented stains.
Effectively removes age spots, freckles incurred during and after pregnancy, after intensive sunbathing, as well as during hormonal contraceptive therapy.
Reduces the synthesis of inflammatory mediators prostaglandin E2 and removes redness of the skin caused by UV radiation
