iherb review |Culturelle, Health & Wellness Probiotic, 30 Veggie Caps
The length of time for the expiration date or “best used before” date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.

Core health begins in the core of your body – the intestinal tract where approximately 70% of your immune system resides. Diet, stress, travel and even some medications may cause occasional imbalance of the good and non-beneficial bacteria in the intestinal tract. Culturelle with 100% Lactobacillus GG, the most clinically studied probiotic strain, helps to safely and naturally restore the balance of good bacteria in your digestive tract for strong core health.†† Culturelle helps your digestive system work better and supports your immune health.
Just one capsule of Culturelle contains significantly more good bacteria than regular yogurt.
Guarantee of Purity & Potency
The Lactobacillus GG strain (Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG – ATCC 53103) was discovered in 1985 at Tufts University in Boston, MA. Considered the premier probiotic in the world, Lactobacillus GG has been the subject of over 800 scientific studies.
Culturelle is the only dietary supplement brand with 100% Lactobacillus GG. We certify that our products meet the highest standards of purity and potency. Unlike some products which measure the number of probiotic cultures at time of manufacture, Culturelle guarantees the stated number of live naturally sourced Lactobacillus GG cultures through the expiration date on the package.
Trust your gut to Culturelle.

Customer reviews about the product:
Lactobacillus GG is pretty pricey anywhere you get it, but IHerb has about the best price around and this particular brand has great quality. If you’re looking for “GG”, then you won’t go wrong with this one. If the price for “GG” just seems too high for you, then your next best bet would be to go with Lactobacillus Sporogenes (much less expensive and perhaps just as effective… the Sporogenes can survive even high stomach acidity, which helps to ensure that it’s still active by the time it reaches your gut.
I am very disappointed that culturelle have started adding yeast-encouraging maltodextrin and sucrose into their probiotics as well as the toxic titanium dioxide and I would like to know what their motives are for doing so.
I tried this product out of curiosity and it was amazing! I have always had a hard time having bowel movements because of stress-related problems. I’ve tried taking diuretics, laxatives, fiber-rich foods, fruits, veggies, but ONLY this does the trick! Seriously it was amazing. It made me feel so clean inside and my bowel movements increased greatly. My abdomen was flatter too. I definitely recommend it especially because it is so gentle.
This and L. Reuteri are my favorite probiotics. They seem to give far more benefits than other probiotic (strains) that I’ve tried. I’m on long-term antibiotic therapy for Lyme Disease and I need constant replenishment of probiotic bacterias, so I know what works and what doesn’t.
After trying EVERY acidophillus, bifodophillus and/or lactobacillus product on the market for systemic yeast, I FINALLY found a product that works. I’ve recommended Culturelle to my entire family and all my friends for immune support as well as digestive health. I love this product!
Culturelle is the only probiotic that offers Lactobacillus GG, a strain that is reported to survive stomach acid and colonize in the lower intestines and eliminating bad bacteria. Most other supplements never make it there or there do not contain enough live cells. After a bronchitis hit me for the third time in a year I decided to sit out the round of antibiotics and instead concentrate on boosting my immune system via healthy intestines. There are only a few other strains that have shown similar effectiveness and I take them as well but not together (the may reduce each other’s effectiveness). My bronchitis is gone and gastrointestinal health seems better after 6 weeks. It does not have to be refrigerated – unlike some others I take – which helps when I travel but I still keep it in fridge.
Six and a half stars!!! Five years ago I was given intravenous antibiotics for pneumonia, which resulted in severe antibiotic-induced, burning diarrhea. I took a lot of stuff and it took a long time to figure it out, but Culturelle was the only thing which was effective for me. One pill per day and within two days all my movements were solid and well-formed. Culturelle plus B6 also cured the anal fissures which completely eliminated the burning. For diarrhea issues, Culturelle (and also apple cider vinegar) is an essential part of my personal pharmacopeia.
I have had candida for years. I think I have used every probiotic on the market. From 10 billion CFU to 450 billion CFU (yes 450 billion). I do not know what makes one probiotic work better than another. They all say they are better than an other due to certain reasons. But this actually works. I started taking 3 a day, and then one with every meal, but now I only need one a day. And one a day is amazingly, all I need.
This is a phenomenal probiotic product that completely eliminated clostridia from my husband’s gut – verified via tests. However, be aware that SOME people are severely allergic to the lactobacillus bacteria strain. My mother developed an allergic reaction when taking this product which included bladder and kidney problems and severe rash on her arms. Nowhere is this possible reaction noted on the product. This went on for weeks until we did more research. We had to do several searches on the internet and came across this finding. Within 48 hours of stopping culturelle, her symptoms abated. Scary. Just beware.
Both my husband and I could not tolerate Culturelle. We both suffered uncomfortable AND prolonged intestinal gas and bloating right after taking a capsule, once a day for several days, until a friend told us that some people can’t tolerate “inulin” contained in Culturelle. We have discontinued taking this product, but the bloating still remains. Hope it will subside soon. Please be warned.
This is THE single most important supplement that I’ve ever taken, and it is worth every penny. I’m a 37 year old woman who was born with unexplained splenomegally (enlargement of the spleen; mine was the size of a football). When I was 6 years old, the spleen was surgically removed and I was then prescribed 500mg of penicillin DAILY, INDEFINITELY (GASP). I continued on this antibiotic regimen for 14 years until the age of 20, when I decided to go against my doctor’s advice and take my health back (and stop creating antibiotic-resistant pathogenic bacteria). There was a LOT of damage to be un-done. Not only was I missing a spleen, but most of the good bacteria in my body (which actually contributes to about 70% of one’s immunity) was destroyed by the antibiotics. Understandably, I was perpetually sick with colds, bronchitis, and other ailments through my mid-twenties – even after I stopped the penicillin. It wasn’t until I started taking Culturelle about 10 years ago that my health started to turn around (I also started receiving acupuncture, and I believe both of these were key). I now RARELY get sick! I’ve also tried other brands of probiotics, including Dr. Ohhira, but Culturelle works better for me. Also, these work great as a treatment for vaginal yeast infections – just use as a vaginal suppository 1-2 times a day until symptoms are relieved (be sure to also use a pantyliner).
I’ve used this product for over 4 years and it really seems to settle the digestive system down. I started using it after my first baby when I developed fruit allergies – my face would swell when I would eat fruit – within 6 mos. I could eat fruit again. This wasn’t the only thing I did to heal my gut, but I believe it played a huge role.
In the past this product accomplished great things for me and for my two dogs. Unfortunately it does not seem to work at all anymore. I am very disappointed.
I got this from so many friends that recommended it and good reviews. Sadly it did not work well for me at all. I suffer from IBS and I had it under control with a different probiotic, I took this one for 1 month and it made my IBS just come back full force. Will not get again.
I was on Asacol for the symptoms of Ulcerative Colitis. Culturelle is the only product that alleviated my discomfort. Try it! You have nothing to lose except many trips to the bathroom.
It’s unfortunate that the new company to take over production of Culturelle chose to take the capsules from a 30 billion potency to 10 billion, and charge the same price.
these don’t seem to help or affect any intestinal issue whatsoever — i’ll stop with this after finishing the last box
probiotic quality control seems to be lacking here
this is my 1st box and I’ve been using for two weeks once a day.I use along with NOW super enzymes and my digestive system is in vey good shape.This is the best probiotic i’ve used. Try it and I’m sure you’ll like it. Oh, and don’t forget to buy it from IHerb, they have best price on it and deliver it fast to you.
Rated one of the best probiotics by Dr. Andrew Weil.
after gallbladder surgery, had terrible problems. everything i ate or drank had an adverse reaction. started taking Culterelle and the problems practically disappeared. great for anyone who may have chronic or periodic digestive problems.
Best probiotic. I have Crohn’s Disease and Culterelle has been the only thing that has eliminated the constant gas I experienced.
I would recommend this one along with Dr.Ohhira’s.
The way I use it one month Culturelle and the next month Dr.Ohhira’s.Both are great products.
I’ve been able to take this probiotic every day w/o any problems. There are certain probiotic strain formulas that I have not been able to tolerate, and thus feel safer tying “single strains” like this one, so I know which strains I can tolerate.
I got this product to improve my gut health, and to see if it helps with mental issues as well being that I read that it is supposed to help enhance GABA expression, which would in turn, help with sleep, anxiety and depression, too. I was not aware that the L GG strain is a form of “L Rhamnosus” bacteria which is also supposed to help enhance GABA expression and lower histamine levels in the body, helping with allergies.
On par with Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic.
I have had digestive problems ever since getting a Clostridium infection after a bad antibiotic combo treatment. This product was the first probiotic that was able to reduce my bloating and cramps and helped with IBS. It probably re-established my correct flora, finally. I highly recommend this product for anyone with digestive issues. Also, if you read the latest research papers, it’s really true that Lactobacillus has a general good effect on the whole immune system. Thanks for creating such a wonderful product.
The speed and ease of the web site is remarkable.
The Culturelle helps the whole family, young and mature, alike. We have had a great winter with little illness.
Have been giving this to my daughters (12 and 14yo) and I can see that they are less agitated and calmer in their behaviour.
I like how each pill is enteric-coated and the clinically tested Lactobacillus GG proves results. Great for immune system support, detoxification, digestion, and the list goes on. One day people will truly realize how vital the relationship is with our micro flora.
DON’T TAKE ANTIOBIOTICS, TAKE PROBIOTICS!
Couldn’t figure out why this was the only probiotic I could tolerate. Came across some reading and found out Culturelle was D-Lactate Free, and that some people could not tolerate D-Lactate. Since Culturelle, life has been much better. Good pricing, fast delivery to Canada.
My son has severe gastrointestinal issues and I have tried many of the highest quality probiotics on the market. Another parent told me about Culturelle and its the only one I have used since. It keeps my sons immune system strong and the bugs in his tummy in check. My son’s digestive issues are ongoing but Culturelle has brought him the most relief out of any probiotic we have tried.
Tried this when it was a ‘freebie’ (long time ago?)… since I’m big on Chlorella and spirulina (they also stabilize your digestive system). I didn’t quite see the difference. But I have a patient (I’m a nurse, pt is bedbound, with GTube, and trach), whose digestion was so sluggish that he had to be given suppositories q 3 days, then enema when it’s not working. I suggested to the MD to give him ‘probiotics’ … and guess what he Rx’ed — Culturelle! Maybe it’s the MD-Pharmacy "conspiracy" huh? Anyway, it worked. He goes more regularly now, and is only given the supps and enema on occasions, not like before.

Even though I mainly use the Dr.Ohhira’s, this is an excellent seconary probiotic.
I give this product for my kid for digestive suppoprt. She took it for almost 4 years as I just follow the people who wrote glowing report about it.
I come to conclusion that it still works much better if you take multi probiotics No matter how superior the single strain is, our body needs multiple strains to make it work. Nonetheless, it is a good product if you don’t mind spending the money like I did in the past 4 yr. I have stop using it and switch to multi strains probiotics.
Side effects on my son, bloated stomach, alot of wind and constipated. As with all probiotics, i guess its normal. Only first week, shall monitor. I give alternate days for him.
I used to use Garden of Life Primal Defense Ultra but found with that one that I had to take up to 3 or more per day to get the desired effects. With this product I am only taking 1 per day which is a great improvement.
However I am a bit upset that they didn’t list the capsule ingredients on iherb instead just saying ‘vegetable based capsule’. When I got the product the ingredients were listed on the packet and I am not too happy ingesting them.
This product served me well at a time that I couldn’t afford anything better.
I am now integrating a lot more fermented foods into my diet and am taking Healthforce Nutritionals probiotics which are much higher quality. They are proven to have bacteria alive AT THE TIME the pill is ingested (other brands only test at the time of packaging the product and usually once you get to the point of ingesting the pill- most are dead).
My digestion is excellent now as long as I am taking my fermented foods and probiotics daily.
High quality probiotic that needs to be refrigerated. I noticed an improvement in my bowel movements immediately after switching to Culturelle. I have taken a wide range of expensive, custom blended probiotics over the past 14 years. I feel like I have tried everything. This is the only one I take at the moment because I get really good results with it. Dairy-free!
High potency. Proven results. Highly researched. Single strain. No bifidus. If you research things you learn that bifidus is not what you want to take, despite its popularity. This is the one to use. Nothing fancy. Does the trick!
This is by far the best probiotic I have found. When my kids come down with a fever or a cold, I double the amount of probiotics for a few days and avoid taking antibiotics. Helps with diaper rash when taken orally on a consistent basis!
Even though it says there’s very little milk/dairy effect of this product, I experienced colon irritation using the product for 9 days, I had to quit and gave it up. I’m using a non-dairy probiotic now and the irritation is gone….
Bacteria strain made my system sick. It became pathnogenic, caused topical infections, and slowed healing process.
i bought this for my grandma to try as she has had chronic diarrhea since she had my uncle forty some odd years ago. multiple surgies and all sorts of prescriptions later she has found nothing to alleviate her intestinal problems. i stumbled across culturelle purely by accident and after reading numerous positive reviews decided to order it. Now my grandma has only been taking this for a few weeks, but she called me today to thank me for sending her a “miracle pill”. she’s had only one incident since she started taking culturelle. i only wish that id found this sooner for her.
This is one product I have used for a long time since having Candida. Helps, but I needed other products in addition. Have taken in mega doses, at the recommendation of a physician, when symtoms of Candida flared.
My Son and I have been using Culturelle for over 4 years now and have been very pleased with its performance. We both are immunocompromised and are on antibiotics daily. Since being on Culturelle, we have never had a yeast infection due to antibiotic use and never experienced C Diff. We love this product and all of our doctors use the product as well. WE are delighted that we can purchase from your company as your price is $6.00 less than most retail pharmacies. Thanks again!
this product contains Inulin which makes probiotics much more effective.
it’s expensive but worth it – use it in combination with D-Mannose powder for cystitis
I’m on long term antibiotics and Culturelle keeps my system in good shape. This is also a great price for this item, which goes for at least six dollars more at most other websites and at stores.
Culturelle has helped tremendously with my IBS! I recommend this to anyone with OR without IBS.
A wonderful product, it has helped me greatly.
This product really helped my 12 year old son regain his regular bowel movements. The chicory root is a great help. Cycle this product with Natrol Biobeads.
We also use Now’s Ginger Root with meals.
Has helped tremendously with my corn allergy in just 1 month! Great product!
