Probiotics: Now In Pussy Flavour?!

Costhetics has just discovered news we simply had to share immediately.

It combines several of our favourite topics: good health, good eating, and good sex. Preliminary research suggests there’s a new upside related to going down on women. Cunnilingus, which has already been shown to ease stress, relieve pain, and boost cardio health, is now being seen as an aid to digestive health.

The secret: beneficial bacteria.

Why Costhetics Is Pro Probiotics

If you think of infections and diseases when you think of bacteria, you’re missing a big part of the picture. An estimated 100 trillion “good” bacteria live with the human body.   Probiotics are good bacteria (and yeasts) in the body keep your gut healthy. We couldn’t live without these good buddies! They work like beavers to help

  • Digest food
  • Absorb nutrients
  • Produce vitamins in the intestinal track, including folic acid, niacin, vitamins B12 and B6
  • Produce acids that inhibit the growth of bad bacteria
  • Stimulate the immune system

Where to Get Probiotics & Prebiotics

Like all living things, the probiotics in your body need to be fed in order to remain active and healthy. Probiotics get their nourishment from pre­biotics, a non-digestible carbohydrate. Fermented dairy products naturally contain living prebiotics and probiotics. Some of the most popular edibles include:

  • Yogurt
  • Cheese
  • Sour cream

Non-dairy fermented foods that contain probiotics include:

  • Miso
  • Tempeh
  • Sauerkraut
  • Beer
  • Sourdough bread
  • Chocolate
  • Kimchi

We went searching for probiotics in other places and found them somewhere we didn’t expect: a woman’s vagina.

Vaginal Fluid: Too Much Is Never Enough

Seventy percent of vaginas are dominated by one species of good bacteria known as Lactobacillus. Its purpose, according to the Pharmabiotic Research Institute is to produce lactic acid and keep a woman’s bits at a healthy pH level of 4.5. Therefore, when you’re going down on a woman, you’re literally swallowing a probiotic-rich substance. The big question is this: How big is a healthy portion of pussy? The answer varies widely.

The Washington Post reports that Canada and Italy are the only two countries to create laws around probiotic labelling. In those countries, probiotic edibles are required to contain “at least a billion colony-forming units (CFUs) of probiotics per serving.” (Measuring CFUs is a way to assess the living bacteria within a sample.) Detractors of probiotic pussy say that:

  • The bacteria may be obliterated by acid in the stomach before it reaches the intestines.
  • It’s hard to get enough of a good thing.

Dr Helena Mendes-Soares of the Mayo Clinic told Vice.com that there can be anywhere from 100,000 to 100 million good bacteria cells per gram of vaginal fluid. In order to receive the probiotic benefits of a muff munch, you’ll need to ingest between 10 grams and 10 kilograms of vaginal fluid during a lovemaking session. It might be tough, but at least you’ll have fun trying!
