You probably know that probiotics can help reduce occasional stomach and bowel discomfort, but when taken daily the probiotic in Culturelle® (Lactobacillus GG) can help with occasional digestive upset including diarrhea. When the most clinically studied, proven probiotic is allowed to enter your intestines every day, you never stop receiving the benefits that Lactobacillus GG provides.
Why Should I Take Culturelle® Daily?
To understand why daily use of Culturelle® is so important, you first need to understand exactly how the proven probiotic works. Our probiotic is the only one on the market that contains 100% of the most studied probiotic strain, Lactobacillus GG. It has been scientifically shown that this probiotic strain can survive harsh stomach acids to make their way to your intestines. Once there, they build up a strong barrier against the non-beneficial bacteria that may enter your body. And since you never know when the non-beneficial bacteria is going to hit you, you always want the barrier to be in effect.
How Quickly Will I Notice the Benefits?
Once you begin your daily regimen of Culturelle®, you can look forward to improved digestive and immune health in as soon as 48 hours. That’s about how long it takes for the Lactobacillus GG to get to work building the strong barrier in your intestines to balance out the non-beneficial bacteria. However, you should be aware that some people do report mild gas and bloating in the first few days of use. This is absolutely normal and is just your body adjusting. With regular use, this will subside quickly, and you can experience the reduction of occasional digestive upset and boosted immunity that Culturelle® provides.
What Will Happen If I Stop Taking Them?
If for some reason you decide to halt your use of Culturelle®, the barrier in your intestines that was built up by the Lactobacillus GG may begin to breakdown. Without the daily introduction of the good bacteria, it might not be able to stay strong. As a result, the good and non-beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract will no longer be balanced, opening you up to general and occasional abdominal discomfort caused by anything from the foods you eat to the medications you take. Even stress and travel can wreak havoc on your intestinal tract if the Lactobacillus GG isn’t present to help keep everything balanced.
As you can see, taking Culturelle® everyday will help with occasional digestive upset. It is safe for daily, long term use. The best part is that taking Culturelle® couldn’t be easier. All you need is one Digestive Daily Capsules per day to receive 10 billion CFU (colony-forming units) of Lactobacillus GG, the only proven probiotic. You can take it any time of the day, with or without food, and if you prefer, you can even open up the capsule and mix the probiotics in any cold food or beverage.
Do your digestive tract a favor by adding Culturelle® to your daily regimen. Your body will thank you.
