Kolorex® Vaginal Care Her Balance, formerly known as Advanced Candia Care with Kolorex Horopito Extract helps support vaginal health and balance the microflora in the vaginal tissues.
Vaginal Care Her Balance provides fast, effective, natural yeast fighting properties to help restore balance due to yeast overgrowth.
Yeasts or fungi are a family of organisms that occur everywhere in nature. The most well known yeast is probably Candida albicans, a common inhabitant of the human intestinal tract, skin and vagina.
Kolorex capsules utilise the power of herbal Horopito to support vaginal health, restoring peace to your intimate care routine. It contains a herb called Horopito, Pseudowintera colorata, a traditional New Zealand herb that contains a compound called polygodial utilised often for the treatment of thrush.

Can I give Kolorex to children?
We do not have safety studies on the use of Kolorex by children and so safety cannot be guaranteed. Because of this, we cannot recommend use of Kolorex by children under the age of 12. We have been asked whether it’s possible to take half a capsule of Kolorex for a smaller dose. This is not recommended because the ingredient in Kolorex capsules is very hot, a bit like cayenne pepper and may cause a burning sensation in the oesophegus as it goes down if it is taken without the protective capsule. DO NOT CUT OPEN A CAPSULE TO TAKE A PART DOSE.
Can I take prebiotics and/or probiotics at the same time as taking Kolorex?
There is no harm in taking prebiotics and/or probiotics at the same time as taking Kolorex. However, when first taking Kolorex, we recommend taking Kolorex on its own to ensure the product can be well tolerated before introducing other products. If taking Kolorex at probiotics, we recommend taking at different times in the day (e.g probiotic in the morning, Kolorex in the evening).
What is the key ingredient in Kolorex?
The key to the Kolorex® range is Kolorex® Horopito leaf. This comes from high activity specimens of the traditional New Zealand herb Horopito. These plants are grown in their natural habitat and each harvest must pass an independent test for activity prior to use in the Kolorex® range. The active ingredient in the Horopito leaf is called polygodial. It is the polygodial that is responsible for Horopito’s antifungal activity.
I think that I am feeling unwell when taking Kolorex?
People, very occasionally experience nausea or stomach discomfort after taking Kolorex® capsules, particularly the first few times. This may be due to the natural heat of Kolorex® Horopito (similar to cayenne) or it may be due to a Herxheimer (yeast die off) reaction. If the feeling persists we recommend that you cease taking and/or consult a suitably experienced health professional.
Is Kolorex medicine?
No. Kolorex® products are designed to help maintain general well being. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
What makes Kolorex different from other products on the market?
The main ingredient in Kolorex® products is Horopito (Pseudowintera colorata) which contains a powerful anti-fungal active ingredient. Research has shown that Horopito is stronger than Pau d’Arco, oregano oil or olive leaf oil extract in helping the body restore its natural microflora balance.
Is Kolorex safe for animals?
We have not established the safety of using Kolorex® on animals, nor have we established any dose regime for use in animals. Kolorex is not recommended for animals at this stage.
How should I take Kolorex?
We recommend they be taken on a full stomach and washed well down with water.
How long can I take Kolorex for?
They can be taken long term without problems. We suggest you discuss long term usage with an experienced health professional.
