The Culturelle Probiotic Advantage

There is a lot to consider when choosing a probiotic for you and your family. And there are many probiotics to consider. It can be overwhelming! Let’s try to simplify a little.

Here are 4 questions you should consider when choosing your probiotic.

What’s in it?

The type of bacteria in your probiotic is important, but the exact strain used in the product is critical to understanding what benefits it can provide. Different strains can vary drastically in effectiveness and duration of your results.

The Culturelle Advantage:
Culturelle probiotics contain 100% Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG ATC53103. The strain is naturally sourced, so it is proven to work in harmony with the human body.* The two doctors who discovered Lactobacillus GG, Sherwood L. Gorbach and Barry R. Goldin, found that it was the ultimate in probiotic power – strong enough, sticky enough, and fertile enough to survive stomach acids and set up shop in the intestines.

Has it been tested and researched?

Clinical studies and research are the difference between promises and results. Be sure your probiotic is thoroughly studied, tested, and proven. To meet the gold standard, the research should be conducted in humans.

The Culturelle Advantage:
The probiotic strain in Culturelle - Lactobacillus GG – is the #1 most clinically studied strain of probiotic.†† Over 800 scientific studies and over 25 years of research have shown the safety and efficacy of Lactobacillus GG. It is able to survive stomach acid and form a strong barrier against non-beneficial bacteria on the intestinal wall.*

How much will you get?

Probiotics are living micro-organisms and some of them die before they can do any good. It’s a natural process, even in supplements. Many brands and products (like yogurt) only tell you the number of live probiotics present when the product is made, not the number they guarantee at the time of consumption.

The Culturelle Advantage:
Every package of Culturelle meets the highest standards for purity and potency when consumed (not when we make it). Culturelle guarantees the stated number of live naturally sourced Lactobacillus GG cultures through the expiration date on the box. And that yogurt? You would have to eat about 10 cups of probiotic yogurt a day to get close to the number of good bacteria found in just one of our capsules.

Will my probiotic be fresh?

For a probiotic to do its best work, it needs to survive and thrive. But these are delicate little bacteria, and they’re sensitive to light, oxygen, and moisture.

The Culturelle Advantage:
Culturelle capsules are individually packaged and protected with a double-foil barrier to ensure the survivability of our probiotic. Capsules are individually sealed and given a mini atmosphere to prevent moisture, light, heat and air from getting in. This keeps our probiotic fresh and viable.
