This pack contains 1x Take Me With The Pill and 1x V Good Probiotics - your favourite duo for a healthy body, gut and vaginal flora while on hormonal birth control.

It’s no secret that hormonal contraception can take a toll on your body's nutrient stores and make you more susceptible to less than ideal digestion and itches or niggles ‘down there.’

Take Me With The Pill replenishes the nutrients depleted by your birth control and eases the transition if you choose to come off it.

V Good Probiotics is a premium probiotic with scientifically studied strains such as L.Rhamnosus HN001™ and L.Acidophilus La-14® for easy ‘down there’ care and gut health.

V Good Probiotics:

Quantity per daily serve (1 capsule):

  • Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™: 6 billion CFU
  • Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14®: 9 billion CFU
  • Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™: 10 billion CFU
  • Total CFU per cap: 25 billion CFU

V Good Probiotics utilises a Slow Release Capsule to help deliver the probiotics beyond the stomach acid.

V Good Probiotics contains dairy so is not vegan-friendly, but is free from gluten, soy, corn, refined sugar, GMOs, artificial colours, flavours and additives.

Key Ingredients
Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™

Probiotic strains LGG® & La-14® are clinically-documented probiotic strains known to support vaginal health and overall feminine wellness. When taken orally, this probiotic combination has been shown to help promote a healthy vaginal microbiota and reduce the incidence and reoccurrence of bacterial vaginosis and thrush.

Lactobacillus acidophilus La-14®

Probiotic strains LGG® & La-14® are clinically-documented probiotic strains known to support vaginal health and overall feminine wellness. When taken orally, this probiotic combination has been shown to help promote a healthy vaginal microbiota and reduce the incidence and reoccurrence of bacterial vaginosis and thrush.

Bifidobacterium lactis HN019™

Evidence shows that B.Lactis HN019™ supports regular bowel movements, healthy digestion, and occasional gas and bloating. This probiotic strain is so well researched, that Canada, Japan, Switzerland, and Brazil have all approved it as an effective intervention for reducing gut transit time (aka helping with regular daily bowel movements).

Vitamins

Studies show that most women who use oral contraceptives should take daily vitamin supplements that have been carefully crafted to replenish the essential nutrients that deplete whilst using oral contraceptive medication. Requirements for B1, B2, B6, B9 and B12 all increase due to oral contraceptive use.

Minerals

Oral contraceptives have been shown to affect a number of metabolic and nutritional processes. The use of contraceptive pills has been shown to decrease the physiologic levels of magnesium and zinc.

Antioxidants

Lutein is an antioxidant that belongs to the carotenoid group. It's found in high amounts in leafy greens and orange-yellow vegetables as well as dietary supplements. Lutein is important for maintaining breast health and sufficient dietary intake has been associated with a reduced risk of breast related health conditions.

FAQs

I’ve got an IUD/rod/depo - would Better Together: On Birth Control be right for me?

While the largest body of research has been on the pill, there are a number of studies that suggest all forms of contraception have a negative impact on female health. This is due to the inflammatory nature of synthetic hormones and how they affect our own natural hormones. Our natural oestrogen and progesterone combined are designed to affect every organ system in our bodies! Many side effects caused by all hormonal contraception can be managed by nutritional and probiotic support, as found in Better Together: On Birth Control. Therefore, we love Better Together: On Birth Control for those using the pill, Mirena, IUD, rod or depo-provera.

Can my teenage daughter use Better Together: On Birth Control?

Yes; if your teenage daughter is using a form of hormonal birth control she would absolutely benefit from the nutrient, antioxidant and probiotic support in Better Together: On Birth Control.

Can I use Better Together: On Birth Control while pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you are pregnant we recommend using a high quality prenatal and folinic acid over Take Me With The Pill to ensure you are meeting your unique nutritional needs during this time. If you are breastfeeding and are on the pill or another form of hormonal contraception Take Me With The Pill would be a lovely support for you. V Good Probiotics is actively recommended during pregnancy, postpartum and breastfeeding. The carefully selected probiotic strains have some incredible benefits for pregnancy (for both mum and baby) such as balancing vaginal flora for less itches and infections, immunity, blood sugar balance (important for gestational diabetes) and gut health support. While breastfeeding V Good Probiotics can support mum and baby’s immune systems, baby’s microbiome development, postpartum mood balance and gut health.

Is Take Me With The Pill contraindicated with any medications or health conditions?

If you are on thyroid medication, using blood thinning drugs such as warfarin or if you anticipate surgery, we’d recommend checking with your healthcare practitioner before using Take Me With The Pill . If you have a diagnosed inflammatory bowel disease, we’d also recommend checking with your Doctor before use.

Is V Good Probiotics contraindicated with any medications or conditions?

Pylori infection, Barretts Oesophagus, Diverticulitis or any other gastrointestinal pathology. For these conditions we recommend you check with your medical professional before trying this product.

Is Better Together: On Birth Control suitable for vegans?

Unfortunately not! The probiotic strains used in V Good Probiotics are derived from animal products such as milk, so they are not wholly vegan. Take Me With The Pill is vegan and vegetarian friendly.

Can I use V Good Probiotics while on antibiotics?

Absolutely. The probiotics in V Good Probiotics can provide fantastic gut and vaginal health support during antibiotic use. Just make sure to take V Good Probiotics at least two hours away from your antibiotics.
