Watching briefs: Women’s health


The Canesten range includes combination products that treat both the internal infection and external symptoms of thrush, while Canesbalance BV Vaginal Gel is available for bacterial vaginosis. The gel helps to regulate the pH balance, which effectively relieves unpleasant odour and abnormal discharge. To help women recognise different intimate conditions, there is an educational video series on the Canesten YouTube channel. More information about the videos is available at canesten.co.uk.


Bio-Kult Pro-Cyan is a triple action formula comprising cranberry extract, two bacteria strains and vitamin A. Maintaining normal levels of bacteria in the gut will help to maintain a healthy urinary tract, says the company. Also available is Bio-Kult Candéa with added garlic and grapefruit extract, which has been developed to help strengthen the body’s natural defences against candida over-growth.
