Lactobacillus GG (LGG) is a probiotic strain of “friendly� bacteria found in the intestines (called flora) and needed to maintain a healthy balance in the human digestive system. LGG is currently considered the “gold standard� of probiotics, having been the subject of more than 250 human clinical trials.
