Profase probiotic can be used with Biofase or as a stand alone probiotic for yeast infections. It contains six probiotic bacteria that have all been found to be effective at controlling excess yeast in the body.
These bacteria are:
Lactobacillus plantarum is a rod-shaped, gram-positive lactic acid bacterium found in the mouth and intestines of humans and other animals. Lactobacillus plantarum has shown complete growth inhibition of candida albicans invitro.
Lactobacillus Casei is a mesophilic bacterium that is a gram positive, rod shaped, nonsporing, nonmotile, anaerobic, and does not contain any cytochromes. It is found in the human intestine, mouth, and reproductive tracts. L casei was found to be more effective than Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus reuteri against candida albicans in the intestines of mice.
Bifidobacteriam Longum is a gram-positive, anaerobic, and branched rod-shaped bacterium that inhibits the growth of bad bacteria and is one of the first bacteria to colonize infants via breast milk. It is found in the female vaginal tract where it helps prevent bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections. It has been found to prevent and relieve diarrhea, reduce cholesterol, inhibit the growth of bad bacteria and boost immune function.
Bifidobacteriam Breve is a rod shaped, anaerobic and non-motile bacterium that is one of the major species of bacteria to be found in infants. It also inhabits the vaginal tract where it prevents the over growth of candida yeast. It has been shown to significantly reduce the presence of candida albicans yeast and other yeast species.
Bifidobacterium animalis lactis is a gram-positive, anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium found in the large intestines of humans and most mammals. B animalis has been shown to reduce candida yeast levels more effectively than Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus reuteri.
acidophilus is a gram positive bacteria that is usually found
in most peoples intestinal tract. As mentioned in the studies above it
does have an effect on controlling yeast within the human body. It also helps to prevent Candida yeast from adhering to vaginal epithelial cells.
Bacillus subtilis is a benign, ubiquitous(meaning everywhere) bacterium commonly recovered from water, soil, air, and decomposing plant residue. It is gram positive, rod shaped, spore-forming bacteria that is able to form a tough protective shell to survive extreme environmental conditions. In 2009 it was determined that this bacterium is definitely part of the bacterial environment of the human gut. Bacillus subtilis inhibits biofilm formation of Candida albicans. It also inhibits it from shifting from spore form to hyphael form, and inhibits its enzyme activity.
Profase is safe for children and has been used successfully to treat yeast infections in one year olds. For stubborn infections combining with Biofase has shown excellent results.
also contains a very small amount of Isolmalto-Oiigosaccharide (a
prebiotic), which is used to get the bacteria to flow into the capsule
when manufactured. The medical studies are so numerous on all these bacteria that the best thing to do if you want to read them, is to click this link and read them.

can cause a cleansing reaction in people that have over growths of
yeast or bad bacteria in their intestines, which makes them feel sick or
nauseated. This initial cleansing reaction usually goes away in a few
days to a week.
