Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG Supplement

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus gg is a probiotic strain that supports both intestinal and vaginal flora as well as promoting digestive comfort. It is formulated in DR Capsules for optimal absorption and bioavailability.

Each capsule also contains inulin, a fructo-oligosaccharide that nourishes the bacteria and thus promotes its growth. At the recommended dose of two capsules a day, this dietary supplement can be taken on a temporary or prolonged basis, depending on your needs and the advice of your doctor. However, those with an impaired immune system or anyone who’s undergoing medical treatment are advised to consult a health professional before starting any new supplement regimen.

What is Lactobacillus rhamnosus?

Lactobacillus Rhamnosus gg is formulated from a strain of probiotics. These are living microorganisms that — when ingested in sufficient quantities, are beneficial to your health. In fact, probiotics are known to form part of the body’s various microbiota, communities of microorganisms.

While our intestinal microbiota is better-known for its role in the body’s digestion and defenses, others, such as vaginal microbiota, are also involved in protecting the body from external attack. The L. rhamnosus strain selected for our supplement has been the subject of more than 800 studies examining its benefits for intestinal microbiota and vaginal flora.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg Probiotics vs Lactobacillus rhamnosus Probiotics

Before you take Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg capsules, you should understand what’s in them. L. rhamnosus is one of many bacteria in the intestines. It comes from the Lactobacillus genus, which is a bacterium known for producing lactase. This enzyme is responsible for breaking down sugar lactose into lactic acid.

L. rhamnosus has adapted to withstand the harsh conditions of your body. Not only can it survive in both basic and acidic conditions; it adheres to the intestinal walls and creates colonies. This enables Lactobacillus rhamnosus supplements to survive longer than other probiotic strains and offer more long-term benefits.

Typically, L. rhamnosus is added to dairy products, such as cheese, yogurt and milk, to boost probiotic content. However, when added to cheese, L.rhamnosus helps it also ripen, enhancing its flavor.

So, why would you want a Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg supplement instead of standard Lactobacillus rhamnosus tablets? The answer is in the composition itself.

While L. rhamnosus is a potent and effective probiotic strain, it can’t compete with Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg, which is a patented formulation. In order to fully capitalize on the benefits of L. rhamnosus probiotics, our dietary supplement has been formulated from the patented strain, called Lactobacillus gg, which is known for its resistance and stability, and therefore viability, over time.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Benefits

Due to the many studies conducted on the positive effects of L. rhamnosus on intestinal microbiota, it’s one of the best probiotic strains available. The lactobacillus rhamnosus gg benefits include:

  • It not only combats the development of infectious agents, such as pathogenic bacteria but also restores the balance of intestinal microbiota.
  • It is thus widely used to treat diarrhea, including that caused by rotaviruses and antibiotics.
  • In addition, L. rhamnosus reduces intestinal permeability, an effect particularly beneficial for reducing digestive problems, such as those related to irritable bowel syndrome.
  • As a result of all these effects on the digestive system, L. rhamnosus constitutes a valuable aid to restoring and maintaining digestive comfort.
  • Although probiotics are better known for their effects on intestinal microbiota, certain strains have been particularly effective at maintaining vaginal flora.
  • L. rhamnosus, in particular, has been shown to be useful for treating urogenital infections, especially bacterial vaginosis, one of the most common vaginal bacterial infections.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Side Effects

Taking a Lactobacillus rhamnosus probiotic for BV seems straightforward enough, but is it safe? After learning all the Lactobacillus rhamnosus health benefits, you might be wondering if there could be any downside. Thankfully, there are minimal Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg side effects to report.

Taking probiotic supplements is generally safe for most people. However, you should always perform due diligence and do your own research even before taking the best Lactobacillus rhamnosus supplements. Look into the side effects and determine if you are a good candidate for this particular probiotic strain.

If you suffer from any medical conditions, you should contact a health care professional before taking any Lactobacillus rhamnosus probiotic supplement. You can also work with your doctor to determine the appropriate Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg dosage to combat any health problems you’re experiencing.

Lactobacillus rhamnosus Dosage

Probiotic bacteria is measured by the number of living microorganisms in each capsule, otherwise known as colony-forming units (CFU). Our Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg supplement contains 10 billion live bacteria per capsule — 10 billion CFU. Take two capsules a day, especially if you’re experiencing antibiotic-related diarrhea or other digestive issues, to get the most out of Lactobacillus rhamnosus.

You should not take probiotic supplements at the same time as antibiotics. Space them out a few hours. Continue taking supplements for at least one week after the antibiotic course to support a healthy gut.

If Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg supplements are made up of live microorganisms, when you buy Lactobacillus rhamnosus, how should you store it? Does L. rhamnosus need to be refrigerated? The answer is yes! It’s best to store this product at a low temperature and in conditions of low humidity to maintain the highest possible number of bacteria in a ‘viable’ state. That’s why SuperSmart stores all its entire Lactobacillus rhamnosus gg stock in refrigerated conditions.

That being said, storing them at room temperature for a few weeks will not produce a significant decrease in the number of viable bacteria. This is because of the addition of natural ingredients, which specifically increase the probiotics’ survival rate when stored at less-than-ideal temperatures.

Taking other probiotic strains may also be advisable in the case of digestive problems. The strain Lactobacillus gasseri, for example, is recommended for restoring balance to gut flora, while the strain Lactobacillus reuteri can help combat diarrhea. Both are available to buy at Supersmart.
