It takes more than just calling a probiotic formula “For Women” to make it a true probiotic for women’s health.
Jarro-Dophilus® Women contains four patented probiotic strains, when taken as an oral supplement, have been documented in clinical studies to help protect the vaginal tract.*
Jarrow Formulas’ proprietary, food based enteric coating helps probiotic bacteria survive stomach acid to ensure maximum probiotic supplementation in the body.
It takes more than just calling a probiotic formula “For Women” to make it truly a probiotic for women’s health.
Jarro-Dophilus ® Women is a true probiotic for women because it uniquely contains four patented probiotic strains known as the “Astarte” strains.* All four Astarte strains were originally isolated in clinical research from young, healthy women in their third month of pregnancy and are the predominant species found in the vaginal tract of healthy women.* The strains were enumerated and screened for desirable characteristics and efficacy, and clinically tested to document their health benefits for women’s health.*
Jarro-Dophilus® Women contains the clinically tested Astarte strains which are protected by U.S. Patent 8,846,027 and European Patent 2,509,610. Astarte is owned by HSO Health Care GmbH, Vienna, Austria, and licensed in the U.S. to Jarrow Formulas, Inc. Other international patents pending.
When it comes to choosing effective probiotics for better health, documented strains matter.™ Clinical studies have shown the predominance of L. crispatus, L. jensenii, L. gasseri, and L. rhamnosus as characteristic of the vaginal microbiota in healthy women.*
In a study of 319 women visiting three medical clinics, most women’s normal vaginal bacterial residents included L. crispatus (32%), followed by L. jensenii (23%), L. 1086V (15%), L. gasseri (5%), L. fermentum (0.3%), L. oris (0.3%), L. reuteri (0.3%), L. ruminis (0.3%), and L. vaginalis (0.3%).*

In another study involving 126 healthy pregnant women, L. crispatus and L. gasseri were the most dominant species found, followed by L. jensenii and L. rhamnosus.*

The four strains in Jarro-Dophilus ® Women (Astarte strains) were tested in a double-blind randomized trial in 60 subjects. Oral supplementation with these strains resulted in the improvement of vaginal Lactobacilli microbiota.*

Recently in Europe (published in 2016), a trial was undertaken with 30 pregnant women given the four Jarro-Dophilus ® Women (Astarte) strains. The comparison group, also 30 pregnant women, received standard prenatal care and no probiotic. Probiotic supplementation yielded significant results over the course of the study. The presence of Lactobacilli increased 3-fold, and undesirable bacteria decreased.*

Jarrow Formulas’ EnteroGuard ® is a proprietary cellulose-based, food-grade, pH-sensitive enteric coating that resists stomach acid and disintegrates in the less acidic pH of the upper intestines. The acidity of the stomach forms an important natural barrier against the entry of bacteria and yeasts into the rest of the digestive tract. However, this same barrier can impede probiotic supplementation.
Jarro-Dophilus ® Women’s EnteroGuard ® coated capsules bypass the acid barrier to help optimize the amount of friendly bacteria that actually reaches their destination, ensuring that nearly 100% of the probiotics pass through the stomach unharmed.SEE ALL ENTERIC COATED PROBIOTICS
