Culturelle Probiotic Reviews

  1. 1. By Probiotics Expert: Dr. Raga
  2. 2.  Culturelle probiotic is a supplement which contains 100% Lactobacillus GG strain. This probiotic strain is a bacteria that are naturally found in the digestive tract.  Every capsule is said to contain about 10 billion cells of live active bacteria.  This probiotic can aid in digestive and immune health.  Also, Culturelle states that, unlike other probiotics, it is able to withstand the acidic environment of the stomach and reach the intestines where it restores the balance between the good and bad bacteria.
  3. 3.  This is claimed to be the most clinically studied probiotic that can help in improving digestive and immune health.  This strain of probiotics was discovered by scientists, Professors Sherwood Gorbach and Barry Goldin, in 1985 at Boston.  In the study conducted by these two scientists, they were trying to find a bacteria strain which meets certain stringent criteria.
  4. 4. 1) The bacteria should be originating from a human. 2) The strain must have the capability to adhere itself to the intestinal lining. 3) It must have the ability to colonize the intestine. This is to prevent their competition with invading pathogens from happening. 4) The bacteria strain should be able to survive bile and stomach acid. Additionally, it should be able to withstand travel through the stomach. 5) It should have benefits to the health of the human body. 6) Should be proven safe for human consumption
  5. 5.  1997: In a study performed in 245 adults who were given L.GG or placebo to prevent traveller’s diarrhea in various countries have shown that the use of L.GG was effective in decreasing risk of having the said condition.  1999: There was a study conducted that have shown L.GG’s ability to prevent antibiotic- associated bacteria in children.  2000: There was a study, which involved 287 youngsters from 10 countries, discovered that LGG can decrease infectious diarrhea by a day compared with placebo.
  6. 6.  2010: There is also a scientific research which have shown that Lactobacillus GG is able to reach the intestines and that 10 billion cells of this strain is the recommended dose.  2010: In 2010 consumer reports, it was discovered that out of the respondents who participated in the survey, 35% of them stated that consuming Lactobacillus GG helped them a lot.
  7. 7.  Most consumers of Culturelle probiotic have stated how much help the product is, in relieving their problems with the digestive system.  Many people also appreciate that Culturelle is very easy to swallow and is simple to take.  Also, most people who use the product have testified to its effectiveness and safety.  There are only rare cases in which an individual experiences side effects of the product.
  8. 8.  With a recommendation from a health care proivider, many parents have tried using Culturelle probiotics for their children and consider it safe and effective for them.  There are also lots of medical professionals who recommend the use of Culturelle probiotics to their patients, especially those who have troubles in their digestive system and immune health.  The packaging of the Culturelle Probiotic which double-foiled makes it a great choice for people who are into frequent travelling. With this packaging, the probiotics are ensured to be protected from moist, heat, air, and light.
  9. 9.  Many people have also recommended it for long-term use. There have been lots of testimonials from its consumers that Culturelle is very safe and effective to consume.  However, there are some who did not feel the benefits of Culturelle. This may be due to the fact that people have very unique biochemical composition. That’s why reaction to the product may vary in everyone.
  10. 10.  While Culturelle probiotic is proven and has given many people benefits, it is not my favorite probiotic.  Probacto is my favorite probiotic because of the different strains of bacteria, it has prebiotics as well as a yeast cleanse.  The probiotics in Probacto are very resilient, they guarantee the bacteria until expiration, and they also made sure it’s enteric coated so it will survive the harsh stomach acids.
  11. 11.  Culturelle probiotics is one of the most popular brands of probiotics in the market today. Many people have testified to its effectiveness and safety. Though this is the fact, there are others who were not able to experience its effects. Again, biochemical composition of the body may have something to do with this. With this fact, people should take probiotics while giving considerations to asking an advice from a medical professional. This is to determine and ensure what type of probiotics can work out for a particular individual.
