Review: FemDophilus – how and why it works

Fem-Dophilus is made from two patented strains of probiotic bacteria – Lactobacillus rhamnosus, GR-1 and Lactobacillus reuteri, RC-14. There are 5 million cfu per capsule, with the recommended dose on the label being two capsules per day.

The one piece of research
[1. Oral use of Lactobacillus rhamnosus GR-1 and L. fermentum RC-14 significantly alters vaginal flora: randomized, placebo-controlled trial in 64 healthy women, , , , , , ,

 they have done simply states that daily use of these strains may impede pathogenic bacterial colonisation in the vagina.

Fem-Dophilus is not specifically used to treat any infection, but it can restore a more healthy vaginal flora for asymptomatic women (BV, yeast) and for those prone to infections.
