Culturelle Probiotic Review


We did things backwards with my Culturelle review, and although the giveaway has closed, I had the opportunity to review both the kids version as well as the adult version. Our review time with the product has been relatively short, since I did not take it along with us on vacation due to limited luggage space, but I love the benefits it provides without any extra calories. 

The past few weeks I have been battling a bothersome cough, congestion and sinus aches, which has been frustrating, because there is so little I can take while I’m pregnant to fight it. As you can read about in more detail below and on their website, the digestive tract plays an integral role in our immune systems and keeping my tract healthy and stocked with good bacteria may help me kick this and avoid other sicknesses this fall and winter. 

The capsules are easy to swallow and the kids version can be dissolved in a cool beverage or food of your/their choice. It is odorless and tasteless so you won’t get any sour faces and as I mentioned earlier, it doesn’t add any calories or sugar to their diet. We are big yogurt fans at home, especially my daughter, so I have not been giving it to her on a daily basis, but it is a great product to have available for irregularity, a boost in the immune system and overall well being. 

More About Culturelle:

Culturelle® is the only probiotic dietary supplement containing Lactobacillus GG, the ³good² bacteria strain used to restore and maintain a healthy balance in the digestive system.

Culturelle® is all-natural, and does not contain any wheat or gluten. There are trace amounts of dairy proteins (less than 15 ppm in each capsule), but it is also available in a dairy-free formula.

Culturelle® Products are as follows:  Natural Health and Wellness 30-count, Culturelle for Kids, Digestive Health 30-count and Dairy-Free Natural Health and Wellness -30 count.

Culturelle is the most researched and clinically proven probiotic supplement on the market.  Lactobacillus GG, which is only found in supplement form in Culturelle, is the subject of more than 450 clinical reports and studies, making it the mostly widely researched strain of probiotic in the world proving its safety and efficacy.

Culturelle works to help promote overall digestive and  immune health. Diet, stress, travel and even some medications encourage bad bacteria to flourish in your intestinal tract. When bad bacteria outnumber good bacteria, your digestive and overall health is open to a host of potential concerns.  Culturelle, with Lactobacillus GG, safely and naturally replaces the bad bacteria in your digestive tract with good bacteria leading to healthier digestion and a stronger immune system.

Unlike most-probiotic-fortified foods, Culturelle gets to where health benefits are needed the most!  The Lactobacillus GG found in Culturelle is one of the few probiotics that survives the strong acids of the stomach and intestines and then has the ability to colonize the intestinal tract (where 70% of the immune system resides).

Not all probiotic supplements are created equal.  The amount of live bacteria listed on many probiotic labels is often the number of bacteria at the time of manufacture, not use.  Culturelle, however is manufactured with at least 30 billion live cells with at least 10 billion guaranteed at time of usage.  This is about 10 times the amount of probiotic bacteria found in many yogurts (and without the additional sugar or calories).

Samples of the products mentioned in the review were provided for this review. No other compensation was received and the views and opinions are my own.
