Culturelle Probiotics Digestive Health Review

The holiday season means lots of food and festivities, which can sometimes lead to digestive aches and pains. It's fun to indulge, but not so fun dealing with poor digestive health. Culturelle Probiotics has a great line of supplements that can help keep your digestive and immune systems in check this season!

Culturelle helps fix digestive issues by adding good bacteria to your body to help restore a healthy bacteria ratio to your digestive tract. Probiotics, like the ones in Culturelle, are good bacteria that help keep the natural balance of organisms in the digestive system. The most clinically studied strain of probiotics is called Lactobacillus GG and it is found in all Culturelle products.

All Culturelle Digestive products contain between 10 billion and 20 billion colony-forming units (CFUs) of probiotics. The stated number of live, naturally-sourced probiotics is guaranteed through the expiration date on the package.

But what does that all mean? Basically, the probiotics in Culturelle Digestive Health help boost digestion, minimize travel-associated stomach and digestive issues, and reduce occasional gas and bloating by rebalancing the ratio of good bacteria and non-beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract.

There are three different products in the Digestive Health line: the Daily Probiotic (pictured above), Extra Strength (first image in this post), and Daily Probiotic Chewables.

The Daily Probiotic capsules are a once-daily supplement with the Lactobacillus GG probiotic and other naturally-sourced ingredients. They're dairy-, gluten-, and sugar-free and are also vegetarian. Taking one capsule a day or two when experiencing occasional digestive issues can help with issues like diarrhea, gas, and bloating.

The Extra Strength capsules contain twice the amount of probiotics (20 billion CFUs) and is recommended for use once a day.

If you don't like swallowing pills, the Orange Chewables are a great option. These have 10 billion CFUs and are recommended for once a day use or twice a day when experiencing digestive issues.

The chewable capsules come with 24 in a tube.

Extra Strength Daily Probiotic
I have been taking the Daily Probiotic for a little over a week and I do think it has been helping. I don't have any severe digestive issues, but gas and bloating definitely come up now and again, especially when I eat more than usual. I have noticed that I have not felt bloated or gassy as much since I've started taking Culturelle. Granted, a week's time is not that long, but I'm definitely going to continue to take the supplement and see how it helps balance my digestive tract.
Bottom Line: I think Culturelle Digestive Health is an easy way to boost your digestive health. The capsules are small and easy to swallow, but if you don't like swallowing pills at all the chewables are a great option. It can't hurt to help out your digestive system while eating all that great food during the holidays!
