Allergy Research Culturelle Probiotic is one of the leading probiotic supplements in the US and provides a species of friendly bacteria called Lactobacillus GG. This bacteria colonises the intestinal tract by adhering to the walls forming a protective barrier to keep "bad" bacteria out. This is important because the intestines are the largest immune organ in the body and promoting their health strengthens the body's overall natural defences. Probiotics, apart from their immune enhancing properties, help to address many gastrointestinal concerns including excess wind, heartburn and flatulence as well as helping to eliminate toxins that can cause skin concerns including dermatitis. Children often have autoimmune disorders which may affect gastrointestinal health and often their behaviour. Diets involving elimination of foods such as gluten and wheat can help together with a good probiotic such as Culturelle.
The active culture contains 30 billion live cells at the time of manufacture for maximum potency and survives the harsh environment of the stomach acids and intestinal bile. The potency is guaranteed at 10 billion live bacteria at the end of the 18 month shelf life. With over 200 clinical studies lactobacillus GG is one of the most researched probiotic in the world.
