Health Canada approves women’s health claims for Lallemand’s probiotic

Health Canada recognizes a probiotic from Lallemand Health Solutions for the support of a healthy vaginal microbiome.

Health Canada recognizes the probiotic L. plantarum Rosella from Lallemand Health Solutions (Mirabel, Canada) for the support of a healthy vaginal microbiome and approved the following claims: 

  • Source of probiotics
  • Helps support female or vaginal health
  • Helps support a healthy vaginal microflora
  • Maintains a healthy vaginal microbiome

“This unique probiotic strain, isolated from a healthy vaginal flora with full mechanistic and clinical evidence, is one of the most documented strains in the world in the women’s health area. It has been studied in over 800 women, in six clinical studies, including two by oral intake. Health Canada just confirmed the strain’s ability to support women’s intimate health while taken orally,” said Solange Henoud, global regulatory affairs director at Lallemand Health Solutions, in a press release. “Women will be enthusiastic to rely on such a natural solution with a convenient route of administration. On a separate note, it is important to notice how Canadian regulators are recognizing terms such as microbiome which at the end will also serve to enlighten consumers, through accurate labelling, on the most modern scientific language used in our field.”
