What exactly are probiotics?
Quite simply, probiotics are the good bacteria found in your digestive tract. Taking a probiotic supplement like Culturelle helps to maintain the natural balance of good and non-beneficial bacteria in your body. When good bacteria are added and allowed to multiply, they help replace the non-beneficial bacteria – boosting overall digestive health, supporting the immune system and contributing to better overall health.
Since there are many different bacterial strains, it’s important to understand that not all probiotics deliver the same health benefits.
Can Culturelle really improve my health?
Believe it or not, 70% of your body’s entire immune system is in your digestive tract. With your digestive system and immune system so linked, it’s easy to see how optimal health starts in the core. So when the bad bacteria in your body multiply (from causes like diet, travel, stress and certain medications), your digestion and immune system are vulnerable. Fortunately, there’s Culturelle – shown to boost digestive health and support immune health.
Does Culturelle help with regularity, diarrhea and other digestive health issues?
Digestive issues occur when there is an imbalance of good and bad bacteria. By adding good bacteria (from a probiotic like Culturelle) back to your body and restoring a healthier bacteria ratio, your digestive system can get back on track.
What is Lactobacillus GG?
Found in Culturelle, Lactobacillus GG is the most clinically studied strain of probiotic for digestive, immune and overall health. Discovered in 1985 at Tufts University in Boston, MA and is considered the premier probiotic in the world. Lactobacillus GG is strong enough and sticky enough to survive stomach acids and successfully colonize in the intestines.
Is Lactobacillus GG Safe?
Lactobacillus GG is naturally sourced and has been studied intensely in over 700 scientific studies to determine its safety and effectiveness.
Of all the probiotics, why choose Culturelle?
In study after study, Lactobacillus GG has been shown to survive stomach acid and form a strong barrier against non-beneficial bacteria. Unlike many of its competitors, Culturelle delivers the optimal number of live, active cells recommended by medical research – in each capsule.
Culturelle’s unique properties, state-of-the-art manufacturing and advanced packaging process ensure the greatest amount of active bacteria make it to the intestines – where it matters most.
How does Culturelle compare to yogurt?
Most yogurts contain just a fraction of Culturelle’s 10 billion good bacteria cells. And most yogurts don’t contain a strain as hardy and beneficial as Lactobacillus GG. And unlike yogurt, Culturelle doesn't have all that extra sugar and calories.
Is wrapping every capsule in double-foil really necessary?
Culturelle capsules are individually double-foil-protected and packaged in a way to prevent moisture, light, heat and air from getting to the Lactobacillus GG, guaranteeing maximum potency and stability – ensuring you get Culturelle’s optimal benefits.
