South Korea Okays Vaginal Health Claim For Probiotic Supplement

August 14, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
The South Korean FDA has approved the vaginal health claim of Chr. Hansen’s Urex probiotic dietary supplement. The approval means Hansen customers in the country can make the claim on product packaging and in promotional material that “Urex can help vaginal health by increasing lactic acid bacteria”. Urex contains Chr. Hansen's Probio-Tec strains RC-14 and GR-1. The company says it is spending significant resources on securing official validation of the scientific documentation behind its probiotics. The Korean FDA’s recognition of the health benefits of RC-14 and GR-1 “works as motivational tailwind in this process”, according to a company spokesman.
