Culturelle Review and Giveaway

My family and I are no strangers to digestive/intestinal health, eating right and using what supplements we may have to in order to be well. As a matter of fact when ever the girls get a tummy bug the first thing my mom says is "do you have acidophilus in your fridge"? Possible food poisoning...grab the charcoal. Trouble pooping...prune juice it is. The home/natural remedies approach goes on and on. Something both my mother and grandmother mentioned to me in the past is about probiotics. So when I was contacted by Culturelle about running a review and giveaway for them I was all ears.


Culturelle® is the only probiotic dietary supplement containingLactobacillus GG, the “good” bacteria strain used to restore and maintain a healthy balance in the digestive system.

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 inCulturelle 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). Culturelle is also 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® 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.






I have been taking Culturelle for the past several weeks and have to say I have noticed a change. As you have seen from my "mommy bento" posts, I am a good eater. I try to have a daily balanced diet but what you do not see is that on most days that bento lunch  may be it for that day. So because of this I am prone to getting "backed up" or the complete opposite...cramps and sitting on the pot for a few hours. I also have a gastric ulcer, so throw that into the mix and my digestive health is crap. Since starting the Culturelle I have not had to resort to my stash of laxatives or Pepto and I have been much happier. Less gas and bloating..even with the increase in spinach and raw veggies to my diet. I defiantly have to give Culturelle two thumbs up!

I learned that most yogurts contain 1 billion live good bacteria cells – just a fraction of Culturelle’s 10 billion.
