Culturelle Immune Support Probiotic Review
Culturelle is a probiotic supplement brand that promises to improve your immune system using advanced formulas. Here’s our Culturelle review.
What is Culturelle?
Culturelle is a line of probiotic supplements designed to be taken daily to support your digestive health. The three core Culturelle products include:
— Culturelle Health & Wellness Probiotics
— Culturelle Vegetarian Health & Wellness Probiotics
— Culturelle Advanced Immune Defense Capsules
Each supplement contains a dose of 100% Lactobacillus GG, including 15 billion CFUs of probiotics. The creators of Culturelle primarily advertise two core benefits: first, you can use Culturelle to improve your digestive health; and second, you can use the supplement to improve your immune system.
How Does Culturelle Work?
Culturelle claims to work because 70% of your immune system is located in your digestive tract. By optimizing the good bacteria (the “probiotics”) in your digestive tract, you can significantly increase the effectiveness of your immune system.
As mentioned above, each Culturelle capsule delivers a clinical strength dose of 100% Lactobacillus GG – 15 billion CFUs of that bacteria, to be exact.
Many probiotics contain 10 to 15 different strains of probiotics. Culturelle, however, contains just a single strain (Lactobacillus GG). What’s the reason for that?
The manufacturer explains that Culturelle’s bacteria “is naturally sourced, and proven to work in harmony with the human body.” The bacteria also has the unique ability to survive past your stomach acid and join the intestinal wall to form a “strong barrier against non-beneficial bacteria.”
Ultimately, the creators of Culturelle claim you’d have to eat about 10 cups of probiotic yogurt per day to get the same number of probiotic CFUs found in a single capsule of Culturelle.
How to Buy Culturelle
Culturelle can be found at retail outlets both online and offline around the world. To view the nearest local retailer to your location, use the Culturelle store finder feature here: Culturelle.com
Culturelle is available at Walmart, Target, CVS, RiteAid, and many other popular brick-and-mortar retailers. The Walmart online store, for example, sells Culturelle probiotics for between $15 and $23 per package (depending on the type of Culturelle product you’re buying). Each package contains 30 capsules.
