Probiotics: Lactobacillus rhamnosus – a MCS probiotic?

My last post on lactobacillus rhamnosus was back in 2012, I recently found some new interesting articles on PubMed, so time for an update. Over the weekend, I had a run to Canada to pick up a supply of Mutaflor for my wife (Crohn’s Disease) and spotted Jamieson probiotic for traveler’s diarrhea. They were 10 billion CFU of Lactobacillus Rhamnosus GG per capsule. Culturelle is the same strain and dosage — except for one thing, the wife did not react to Culturelle like she did to Jamieson’s!!! Jamieson’s had a much stronger effect and was 40% cheaper per capsules.  I suspect that the Jamieson’s was a lot fresher (i.e. less time since manufacture) than Culturelle.

I have always found that probiotic intended to treat traveller’s diarrhea tend to be good candidate probiotic (if there is research backing it).
