Culturelle Probiotic Gummies Review
Culturelle Probiotic Gummies are among the most popular and trusted probiotic gummies available in the market today. Culturelle brand is owned by i-Health Inc., which in turn is a subsidiary of DSM, a Dutch multibillion-dollar company known for its presence in nutrition, health, and wellness space.
DSM is known for its several brands, which primarily include probiotics, vitamins, carotenoids, food enzymes, lipids, and other nutritional products. In the health and wellness category, it’s an industry leader and sells nutrition and health products across several countries.
After reading several positive Culturelle Probiotic Reviews, I decided to try Culturelle gummies personally and have been using them for almost a month now.
So, in this Culturelle probiotic gummies review, I will share my personal experience with these probiotic gummies.
What is Culturelle?
Culturelle also sells several other probiotic products in addition to the gummies. They have a whole range of probiotics for babies in the 0-24-month age group, kids, and adults. Some of their products in all the categories mentioned above also combine probiotics with multivitamins or fiber.
Culturelle markets itself as the firm which has a whole range of probiotics for the entire family, and they seem to fulfill this promise as one may not find such a wide range of probiotics for babies, kids, and adults easily with any other company.
Almost all the products sold by Culturelle, including their probiotic gummies, are reasonably priced as one can buy a bottle containing 30 to 52 gummies for around $17.99 to $21.99 (May 2020), which is a bit more than other similar probiotic gummies.
You can either buy Culturelle probiotic gummies online at Amazon or any of the major supermarkets or pharmacy chains, including Walmart, Target & CVS along side other gummies like Digestive Advantage which I tried and reviewed earlier this year.
Culturelle Probiotic Gummies Ingredients
Culturelle probiotic gummies contain the Bacillus Subtilis strain of bacteria along with sodium, inulin (chicory root extract), dietary fiber, and added sugar.
Each gummy contains 3 billion CFUs or colony-forming units of Bacillus Subtilis and is gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegan.
The strain used in these gummies is considered safe for human consumption according to this study (1) and is found in several other Probiotic Gummies.
Culturelle Probiotic Gummies Reviews
Most customers had a positive experience with these gummies, and this is visible in the overwhelmingly positive reviews which one comes across over the internet.
Jake Riley writes on Amazon that she and her kids love these gummies, and the only thing which they don’t like is a bit higher price as these are a bit expensive when compared with some other probiotic gummy brands.
Keeshkitty writes that these are the best gummies out there, and she has seen much improvement in her digestion after taking these gummies along with plenty of water and some magnesium.
Ashley seemed to have a negative experience with these gummies as she, along with her kid, had irregular bowel movements after taking these gummies.
Most customers gave postivie feedback for these gummies, and only a tiny minority of them complain of gummies not working or having gut issues after taking these.
Some customers also complained about the lack of any results, which is understandable because these gummies have a low CFU count, which makes them a bit less effective than the gummies with much higher CFU count of 10-20 billion CFUS.
Culturelle Probiotic Gummies Side Effects?
I did not experience any severe side effects, when taking Culturelle probiotic gummies regularly for a month.
Some customers have complained of minor stomachache, irregular bowel movements along with gas, and diarrhea.
There is also a kids version of these gummies, which uses a bit lower CFU count of 2.5 billion cfu's along with a different bacterial strain, i.e., Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG.
Probiotic Side Effects are however quite common and you may experience them. (2)
My overall experience with Culturelle probiotic gummies was mostly positive, and I also didn’t have to deal with any adverse side effects.
I could feel that my digestion and bowel movements have improved a lot after taking these gummies for a month. The only thing that I don’t like about these products is the fact that they cost a bit more than other similar probiotic gummies with identical ingredients.
So, if you are price conscious, then it’d be better for you to continue your search as there are several other probiotic gummies which cost a lot cheaper than Culturelle and are known to be as effective or even more in some cases. But if the price is not an issue for you, then you can buy these gummies.
