Vaginal health experts strictly advise against taking Kourtney Kardashian’s vaginal health gummies, and for a pretty good reason!
Recently, Kourtney launched a new product called Lemme Purr – a sweet vitamin for your vagina to improve its microflora and help with odor, freshness, and overall wellbeing.
However, it’s more dangerous for your downsouth than you think!
Kourtney’s product includes pineapple extract, vitamin C, and lab-tested probiotics. Most women already get sufficient vitamin C through diet, whereas pineapple extract is meant to induce freshness or reduce odor.
Similarly, your vagina naturally consists of various healthy bacteria (probiotics) that help prevent vaginal infections and use the discharge process to eliminate unwanted micro-agents. They are mainly responsible for balancing the pH naturally. There’s also a natural odor in the vagina, which is OK and nothing to be embarrassed about.
Thus, there’s no reason to use a product like Lemme Purr and artificially add probiotics to your vagina.
Unfortunately, various methods have often been introduced, such as vaginal douching – and now these sweet vitamins – to eliminate the odor by injecting artificial agents, soaps, and creams to “cleanse” the vagina.
Experts explain that since there’s nothing to “fix” or cleanse, these chemicals only do more harm to your vaginal flora, making you more susceptible to bacterial and fungal infections.
