Do Probiotics Prevent Yeast Infections

Do probiotics help prevent yeast infections? They do, and they are the best thing you can take in your fight against Candida.

What are probiotics

Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that live naturally in your intestines and throughout your entire body. When your beneficial bacteria has been killed off that is when you’re more at risk of getting a yeast infection.

Probiotics/beneficial bacteria keep the Candida ( that lives in your intestines ) under control by keeping its numbers down. WHen your beneficial bacteria numbers are low then the Candia is allowed to take over, and when it does it mutates into a fungus that starts causing your symptoms.

Why over the counter yeast cures don’t work

Because your body needs to be strong to prevent a yeast infection, this is why over-the-counter yeast creams are only a temporary cure for a lot of women. Just killing the fungus is not enough, and you need to strengthen your body’s natural defenses with probiotics so you can stop the yeast mutating.

All probiotics are not the same

When choosing your probiotics you need to look around before you buy. You can get some cheap ones in your local health food store, but these are not very good at surviving the journey to your intestines. Stomach acid is too strong for a lot of probiotics and they are killed off before they can do the job they was intended for.


Probably the best probiotic you can buy at the moment is Threelac. Threelac are a probiotic that comes in a powder form, and it is micro-encapsulated so the bacteria are protected from your stomach acid. This means they can get into your intestines where they can start fighting the Candida yeast, and prevent it from mutating into a fungus.

Preventing your yeast infections

If you suffer from recurrent yeast infections then preventing them before they happen is the only way to successfully deal with them. To keep on using OTC anti fungal creams, or worse still, oral anti fungals, you’ll only make the infections more severe.
