GYNACAN is intended to help maintain a healthy vaginal pH and support a healthy vaginal ecosystem (that is a favorable balance of good bacteria to bad bacteria), both of which help support the vagina’s self-cleaning mechanisms. In doing so, GYNALCAN helps to eliminate those unwanted feminine odors that are sometimes caused by bacterial vaginosis and yeast infections.
