Review: VH Essentials Prebiotic Vaginal Suppositories – what is it and what does it do?

The VH Essentials Prebiotic Vaginal Suppository is designed to increase or support probiotic bacterial colonies in the vagina by providing a food source and acidic pH for the bacteria. It does not contain probiotics.

If you have a healthy vagina, this product won’t do much but act in a supportive fashion, but if you suffer from slight or undefinable vaginal problems (minor odour, discharge from non-infectious causes), it could help boost your good bacteria.

It might be useful to use this product with a probiotic vaginally or orally also.
