NOT ALL PROBIOTICS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Lactobacillus acidophilus. Lactobacillus bulgaricus. Bifidobacterium bifidum – they all have big names, but not all probiotic strains have big impact. Culturelle is the only brand in the United States to feature 100% Lactobacillus GG, one of the most clinically studied probiotic. It's proven to survive those good bacteria-gobbling stomach acids and successfully stick to the intestinal walls where it's needed most.
DON’T BELIEVE THE PACKAGING CLAIMS
Many brands list the number of live cells at time of manufacture, not the number at the time of USE. Many products are also not manufactured or packaged in ways that insure you will receive any live bacteria when you take it. Compare that to Culturelle, which guarantees at least 10 billion live cells at the time of use! In fact, each of our capsules is individually double-foil-protected and packed in such a way to keep out light, moisture, heat and air to assure stability and maximum potency.
WHAT ABOUT YOGURT?
Just one capsule of Culturelle contains significantly more good bacteria than regular yogurt. Culturelle® Probiotic capsules guarantees a minimum of 10 billion live cells of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG (LGG) at time of consumption through the date on the box. In regards to regular yogurt, there are currently no regulations regarding the specific probiotic strains used, their probiotic value or their potency. Thus there is no guarantee that a yogurt will deliver a certain amount of beneficial probiotic that would have a positive effect on the body.
