NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Bonafide®, the women's healthcare company that is pioneering a new and more natural approach to manage menopause symptoms with first-of-its-kind, evidence-based over-the-counter medical products, has just announced the launch of its newest innovation, Clairvee™, a uniquely formulated oral probiotic designed to restore and balance the vaginal microbiome.
The vaginal microbiome is an intricate and dynamic micro ecosystem that constantly undergoes fluctuations across all stages of a woman's life, from menstruation, through postmenopause. While there has been a significant amount of research focused on understanding the dynamics of the vaginal microbiota in reproductive-aged women, recent studies have begun to elucidate how the vaginal microbiome can be affected by menopause. According to The North American Menopause Society (NAMS), hormonal changes during menopause can significantly disrupt the vaginal microbiome, negatively impacting vaginal health and exacerbating disruptive symptoms like vaginal itching, odor and discharge. For these reasons, Clairvee™is bringing a long-overdue solution for the millions of menopausal women who want to restore and maintain a healthy vaginal microbiome and relieve the uncomfortable symptoms that occur due to an imbalance.
Clairvee's™uniquely powerful probiotic blend is formulated with a novel, capsule-in-capsule technology specifically designed to protect the live, active probiotics within each individual capsule, that delay their release when ingested, ensuring optimal probiotic viability and effectiveness. The outer capsule also serves as a barrier to oxygen, moisture, and heat, providing an extra level of protection, so no refrigeration is required. It is to be taken orally for 15 consecutive days each month to support continuous balance.
Each Clairvee™capsule contains:
Clairvee™Vaginal Probiotic Formula – Live, active probiotic strains – Lactobacilli acidophilus and Lactobacilli rhamnosus – specific to the vaginal flora that are clinically shown to balance and maintain a healthy vaginal microbiome.
Lactoferrin – Lactoferrin works together with the probiotic strains in Clairvee™to create a natural barrier that helps prevent bad bacteria from disrupting the vaginal microbiome.
Folate – By providing micronutrient support, folate may play a role in maintaining a healthy vaginal microbiome.
"For years, so many of my peri and postmenopausal patients have come to me with feelings of frustration, discomfort, and self-consciousness caused by the symptoms that can occur due to an imbalanced vaginal microbiome," said Dr. Alyssa Dweck, OBGYN and Chief Medical Officer of Bonafide. "Until now, I've had very few options to recommend. I have confidence that Clairvee™will be the 'go-to' probiotic for supporting optimal vaginal health."
Clairvee™has been studied across four randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials in over 170 women, and is shown to restore and maintain the balance of the vaginal microbiome vs. placebo in as early as 15 days, with side effects no different than placebo. Hormonal changes, like those that occur during menopause, can disrupt the balance of the vaginal microbiome and vaginal pH, leading to uncomfortable symptoms like odor, itch and discharge. 1, 2, 3, 4
