Many people suffer from digestive health issues, such as diarrhea, bloating, cramps, and gas. There are quite a few products on the market that are designed to aid in relieving one or more of these symptoms, many of which have helped a lot of people. However, a probiotic supplement called Culturelle allegedly may not function as advertised, as its claims to help with digestive health and immune support have come into question.
Culturelle allegedly may not function as advertised.
Culturelle contains Lactobacillus GG, which is a form of good bacteria that Amerifit, Inc., the manufacturer, claims is able to withstand stomach acid and fight bad bacteria by creating a defense against them. The drug is intended to restore a “natural balance” of bacteria that should be present in the digestive tract, thus promoting better digestive health. Users of the product may expect relief from diarrhea, bloating, and gas, as well as a boost in immune system health, according to the manufacturer’s claims.
However, these statements may be false or misleading, as the efficacy of the supplement has been questioned. If Amerilift misled consumers, users of Culturelle may be able to participate in a class action lawsuit to get back the money they spent on the supplement.
