How it works?

There is an intimate relationship between the gut and vagina, known as the ‘gut-vagina axis’, which is a term referring to the connection between the gut microbiome and the vaginal microbiome. In addition, the vagina has its own unique microbiome, and pH Hero is uniquely formulated to help it thrive, maintaining a perfect pH balance and protecting against infections.

Protect against infection

pH Hero® contains powerful antioxidants including Cranberry, Nettle and Parsley. Cranberry is the most well-known and highly acclaimed, helping protect the vagina from free radical damage and reducing the risk of infections such as cystitis. Parsley and Nettle are natural purifiers, supporting your urinary tract function and normal urinary flow including the excretion function of the kidneys, ensuring your body is efficiently ridding itself of toxins that may otherwise cause infection.

Protect against vaginal dryness

Sea Buckthorn is included in pH Hero® because research shows it supports the body’s mucosal function, which is the production of mucus and part of your body’s immune system, providing a protective barrier against foreign particles. Sea Buckthorn also helps protect the vagina from dryness and helps to maintain healthy skin from within.

Perfect pH balance

The vagina has a natural pH balance that is different to the rest of the body. It is very important to help protect itself from infections. Our body’s natural pH balance ranges from 7.3-7.5, while the natural pH balance of the vagina ranges from 4.0 to 5.0, meaning it is more acidic. This acidity helps protect the vagina and vaginal mucosa from infections and pathogens. pH Hero® is formulated with 20bn healthy, active bacteria that are specifically chosen for their ability to help maintain a natural and healthy ph balance in the vagina, in turn protecting your vagina from infections, UTIs, dryness, vaginosis and other issues.

How your gut and vagina are linked

The gut and vagina are connected by a number of mechanisms, including nerve pathways and hormones. If the gut microbiome is not healthy, it can have a ripple effect on the vaginal microbiome, and disrupt the delicate balance of the vaginal microbiome. A high-fibre diet full of probiotics and prebiotic foods can really help support your gut flora and vaginal flora. Learn more.
