Digestive and immune support from the #1 pediatrician-recommended probiotic†

Balance intestinal microbiota, assist digestion and support kids’ immune systems with Culturelle®

Due to factors such as antibiotics and diet, the microbiota of children may be out of balance, leaving them more vulnerable to infections or gastrointestinal issues.1 This is especially concerning, considering that kids are exposed to a variety of pathogens in daycare2 and up to 30% of them suffer from issues of regularity.3

Extensive study has found LGG®, the probiotic in Culturelle®, to help balance intestinal microbiota, demonstrating a host of immune support and gastrointestinal benefits including acute diarrhea, antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD), and C. difficile induced colitis.4-9
