WHAT IS AZO DUAL PROTECTION™?
AZO Dual ProtectionTM is a daily, synergistic blend of a prebiotic and probiotic designed for the unique needs of women. Many everyday things can throw off your balance (stress, sex, aging, even medications!) This product supports your urinary and vaginal health.* It contains INTELLIFLORATM: a probiotic blend of four lactobacilli that are associated with vaginal health.* The INTELLIFLORATM blend has been shown in clinical studies to help restore and maintain the healthy balance of the vaginal microbiota.* It also contains a unique feminine health prebiotic to help guard the urinary tract and fight unfriendly bacteria.*
WHY A PREBIOTIC FOR FEMININE HEALTH?
Prebiotics can induce the growth or activity of beneficial microorganisms (probiotics). The unique feminine health prebiotic in AZO Dual Protection™ helps fight unfriendly bacteria to maintain a healthy microbiome and urinary tract health.* It can also boost the IntellifloraTM probiotic blend by 4 fold.*
WHAT IS A PROBIOTIC?
Probiotics are live microorganisms which when administered in adequate amounts confer a health benefit on the host. More simply, they are good bacteria that you can add to your health regimen for a variety of benefits.
WHY A PROBIOTIC FOR VAGINAL HEALTH?
Lactobacilli dominate a healthy vaginal microbiota. Menstrual cycles, sexual activity, diet, certain medications, hygiene, and other factors can occasionally disrupt the vaginal microbiome. The INTELLIFLORATM blend in AZO Dual Protection TM has been clinically demonstrated to contribute to the colonization of these important lactobacilli in the vagina.* The result: restoring the natural balance of good bacteria and yeast to maintain vaginal health.*
IF IT’S A PROBIOTIC, WILL IT ALSO HELP WITH MY DIGESTIVE HEALTH?
The INTELLIFLORATM blend has four unique strains shown to promote colonization of good bacteria to help protect and maintain vaginal health.* It has not been studied specifically for digestive health.
HOW IS AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ DIFFERENT FROM OTHER PROBIOTICS?
AZO Dual ProtectionTM is a daily probiotic supplement designed for the unique needs of women. Researchers that formulated the blend started by selecting species that are dominant in the healthy vaginal microbiota. Then they further refined the formula by selecting strains of probiotics that flourish in the vagina. It is also formulated with a unique Feminine Health prebiotic that helps guard the urinary tract and fight unfriendly bacteria. This synergistic blend provides an extra layer of protection from the common cycle of urinary and vaginal issues many women face.*
HOW DOES AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ HELP MAINTAIN A HEALTHY URINARY TRACT?
AZO Dual Protection helps maintain urinary health by guarding the urinary tract and fighting unfriendly bacteria.*
WHY SHOULD I TAKE AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ EVERY DAY?
Studies have shown that everyday activities, like stress, sex and medications, can affect your feminine microbiota. AZO Dual Protection™ can help maintain an optimal microbiome for both vaginal and urinary wellness.*
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO TAKE AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
Every woman’s microbiota is different and so results will vary. However, the Feminine Health Prebiotic has been shown to start working within 24 hours. Clinical studies using the blend of probiotic strains in AZO Dual ProtectionTM demonstrated benefits in as little as 7 days. We suggest continuing with use of the product for a minimum of 30 days. Also, keep in mind that for regular maintenance, you may not SEE results but the product is still helping to support and protect a healthy vagina and urinary tract.*
DOES AZO DUAL PROTECTION AFFECT VAGINAL PH?
AZO Dual ProtectionTM helps to maintain an optimal pH.* The ideal vaginal pH range is between 3.8 and 4.5. The abundance of vaginal lactobacilli are associated with healthy vaginal pH. Supplementation with INTELLIFLORATM probiotic blend led to an increase in vaginal lactobacilli counts to help maintain optimal vaginal pH.*
DOES YOGURT OFFER THE SAME BENEFITS AS AZO DUAL PROTECTION™?
Typically, the microorganisms used to produce yogurt are chosen to achieve a texture and flavor, not to provide vaginal or urinary health benefits.
IS IT SAFE TO USE AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ WHILE PREGNANT?
All supplement use should be discussed with your healthcare professional. Since the feminine health prebiotic has not yet been studied in pregnant women we do not suggest taking during pregnancy.
HOW DOES AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ DIFFER FROM AZO YEAST PLUS?
AZO Yeast® Plus is formulated according to homeopathic principles to deliver specific symptomatic relief from occasional itching, burning, odor, and discharge associated with vaginal issues. AZO Dual ProtectionTM is a once daily prebiotic + probiotic supplement shown to help maintain vaginal and urinary health on an ongoing basis.*
HOW DOES AZO DUAL PROTECTION™ DIFFER FROM AZO COMPLETE FEMININE BALANCE
