CLOSED ~ Culturelle Review and I *heart* Bacteria t-shirt Giveaway

A few years ago, I was told by my doctor that I should take probiotics. Basically, he was telling me to take bacteria. There is good bacteria and bad bacteria and, apparently, I had lots of bad bacteria. So I tried probiotics and they really helped. I stopped using them and started eating plain yogurt to keep the good bacteria in. But sometimes, I need to take some more. Luckily, I was given the opportunity to try Culturelle a probiotic dietary supplement that contains the Lactobacillus GG, the ³good² bacteria strain used to restore and maintain a healthy balance in the digestive system.

Here is some more info about Culturelle from their site:

Culturelle® is all-natural, and does not contain any wheat or gluten. It is also available in a dairy-free formula.

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.

Culturelle works to help promote overall digestive and immune health. When bad bacteria outnumber good bacteria, your digestive and overall health is open to a host of potential
concerns. Culturelle replaces the bad bacteria in your digestive tract with good bacteria leading to healthier digestion and a stronger immune system.


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).

Okay that's the medical stuff and if you visit the Culturelle site, you will learn a whole lot more. Now I can't speak to that but I can speak to the fact that probiotics have helped my digestive problems in the past. I have been taking Culturelle for a couple of weeks and while I don't notice a huge difference, I can tell that it has helped me some. Bloating is down and I feel that my acid reflux has been a lot better since I started taking Culturelle. That's just me. I am all about probiotics and Culturelle seems like it is doing a good job.

It's all about getting the ooky bacteria out and getting the good bacteria in! If you take probiotics now, this product might be one to check out and try. If you have never taken probiotics, you might want to ask your doctor if you have digestive problems. and don't forget to eat plain yogurt as well.
