For years scientists had studied the health benefits of a "good" bacteria family called lactobacillus found in foods like yogurt, milk and certain cheeses. Of the strains they were able to isolate and test, they found that most could not consistently survive the strong acids of the stomach and intestinal bile.

What they found was Lactobacillus GG – a probiotic unlike any other.Culturelle vs. Other Probiotics
