We all think bacteria is gross and bad but did you know that some bacteria is actually good for you and a necessary part of your body functioning properly? Because our diets are not perfect and our immune systems sometimes aren’t enough to fight off bad bacteria, our digestive tracts are often lacking in the good bacteria to fight off the bad stuff.
The good bacteria in our digestive tracks is called probiotics, and the most proven form of probiotics for immune, digestive and overall health is call Lactobacillus GG.
Culturelle is a company that has probiotic supplements for adults and children and the only bacteria contained in Culturelle is Lactobacillus GG.
Kids digestive tracts are especially susceptible to imbalance and because of their daily interactions at school their immune systems are frequently being challenged by bad bacteria. Culturelle has addressed this with their Probiotics for Kids!
KIDS’ IMMUNE SYSTEMS ARE CONSTANTLY BEING CHALLENGED
Between school, the playground, the bus and even at home, kids constantly face a myriad of bad bacteria. Culturelle for Kids contains Lactobacillus GG, one of the most clinically studied probiotic, or “good bacteria”, in the world. The good bacteria safely and naturally displace the bad bacteria, supporting kids’ natural defense systems, and reducing digestive upset.
Culturelle for Kids is one of the very few probiotics available that is 100% dairy and gluten free.
CULTURELLE IS THE #1 PEDIATRICIAN RECOMMENDED PROBIOTIC BRAND
Culturelle’s LGG probiotic has been extensively studied for safety in children of all ages, including neonatal and infants, and those studies have proven that Culturelle given to children:
- Supports their still-developing immune system*
- May help reduce upset stomach*
- Helps to reduce occasional diarrhea*
- Helps reduce the length and severity of antibiotic-associated diarrhea*
We recently had the opportunity to try Culturelle for Kids. My kids are always getting sick and always complaining that their tummy hurts, even when they are not sick. So we tried the Culturelle for Kids for over a week.
First off, using it was easy. The box contains 30 individual servings packets that you simply pour out and mix into a drink. My kids didn’t even notice and didn’t taste it either. I gave them each a packet every morning in their juice or milk.
It’s hard to say for sure something like this is working, especially after only a week or so. But I am inclined to think it is. First of all, there has not been a single complaint about “my tummy hurts” and I used to hear that daily from at least one of them. Second, they both seem to be more “regular.” While there has been a cold going around here, it didn’t seem to be as bad as they have gotten sick in the past.
I think the clinical results about the benefits of probiotics and the positive improvements I have seen already (plus the benefits of Culturelle over others) are enough to keep me using this product for the long term.
