Culturelle is an all-natural dietary supplement containing the health promoting benefits of Lactobacillus GG. It is clinically proven at major US and European institutions to maintain a healthy intestinal tract and strengthens the body's natural defenses.
Common events in everyday life, such as diet, travel, stress and some medications, can cause an imbalance in your digestive system. Probiotics are "friendly" bacteria that help restore the balance in the intestinal tract, there by aiding normal digestion, supporting the immune system and promoting overall health. The strain used in Culturelle, Lactobacillus GG, is the most clinically researched strain and proven to improve digestive health.
If you are having regularity issues, traveling or simply want to promote your health, taking Culturelle daily will maintain the health promoting "good" bacteria in your intestinal tract. This is important because the intestine are the largest immune organ in the body and promoting their health strengthens your body's overall natural defenses.
Lactobacillus GG is grown on whey and will contain trace levels (less than 15 parts per million per capsule) of casein and whey, which are proteins found in milk.
About Lactobacillus GG
Lactobacillus GG, or LGG for short, is a "healthy" bacterial strain that is the most extensively researched and clinically proven strain available. This unique strain takes it name from its discoverers, Drs. Gorbach & Goldin of Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts who analyzed over a thousand different strains for ideal "health promoting/probiotic" characteristics and chose the LGG strain as the ideal probiotic.
Research shows that stomach acid kills many Lactobacillus strains on contact preventing those strains from reaching the intestinal tract. Many of the other strains that do survive the stomach acid do not adhere to the intestinal lining. The ones that are able to adhere typically do not grow in the intestinal tract as successfully as LGG and hence cannot form the same protective barrier in the intestines.
In study after study, LGG has been proven to better withstand stomach acid and form a stronger barrier than other Lactobacillus strains. The European and United States clinical research has consisted of double-blind, placebo-controlled studies (participants and researcher of the study do not know if they are receiving the real or inactive ingredient). The majority of these studies have been published in leading medical and scientific journals.
Furthermore, LGG is safe and effective and is sold in over 30 countries in Asia, Europe, and Latin America in other products such as yogurt, milk drinks, cheese, juices and capsules.
