Lactic acid bacteria and probiotics in the abdomen
Fresh abdomen flora
There are many factors that regulate the composition of the vaginal ecosystem. An important factor is lactic acid bacteria. In a healthy abdomen there are more than 100 million lactic acid bacteria, also called lactobacilli (Lactobacillus species). There are also some other microorganisms – but only in very small quantities. Normal flora varies slightly from person to person and may also vary with the same woman during the menstrual cycle. The hormone estrogen contributes to the formation of glycogen in the wall of the wearer. The glycogen consists of sugar molecules that lactic acid bacteria use as nutrition. The lactic acid bacteria produce lactic acid and balance the acidity of the vagina to a pH between 3.8 and 4.2, thereby creating an environment where most other bacteria do not enjoy.
Due to its dominant presence, lactic acid bacteria appear for a balanced, normal bacterial flora, which is the reason for a healthy abdomen.
How is the pH measured in the abdomen?
Most people know that vinegar and lemon juice are sour and soap is alkaline (basic). The level of acid or alkaline values is measured by measuring the pH. Pure water has a pH of 7.0 and is therefore neutral, i.e. neither acid nor alkaline. The pH of the skin is about 5.5, so wash the skin with regular soap can rub the skin’s natural pH because soap is alkaline.
By using ellen® pH control, you can also measure your pH so you can take timely measures to normalize the pH and eliminate problems like smelly smudges.
Our probiotic tampons and intimate cream contain probiotics that help lower the pH to normal and an environment where unwanted bacteria and fungi are consumed.
