  • Supports satiety

  • Supports digestive health and fat metabolism

  • Promotes microbial balance

  • Known as the fitness probiotic because it helps support the hormone leptin in the body

A probiotic that can help you stay fit? It’s true! Lactobacillus Gasseri is a unique species of probiotic with activity that sets it apart from all other strains. Like many probiotics, Lactobacillus Gasseri is a lactic acid-producing bacterium, which makes it helpful for supporting healthy GI tract function because lactic acid provides valuable protection for the stomach lining and the mucosa of the intestinal tract. But the health-affirming activities of this versatile microscopic ally go far beyond digestive support, with many people finding that it makes a valuable addition to a healthy diet and exercise program for physical fitness and weight management.

Lactobacillus Gasseri has earned a reputation as “the fitness probiotic” because it helps the body support leptin, a hormone that plays a crucial role in energy metabolism and fat storage. Leptin is often called “the satiety hormone” because it helps control the sensations of hunger and fullness, acting as a brake on appetite while boosting metabolism. The body’s leptin levels typically decline during weight loss, slowing metabolism to conserve energy, which is one reason so many dieters struggle to retain their fitness gains over the long term—the infamous “yo-yo effect.”

Swanson Probiotics Lactobacillus Gasseri packs 3 billion viable organisms into acid-resistant, designed-release, vegetarian DRcaps® that enable them to reach the lower GI tract intact for optimum results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Need months to judge effectiveness Because of the type of product this is, it will be months before my gut is sufficiently repopulated to see an effect. Swansons price was outstanding and am just trusting that the quality is good.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure if effective Since I have no way to test the ingredients and it took sooo long to ship in very hot weather, I don't know if the probiotics are still active and effective, but I got this on a BOGO sale so worth a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from FOUND IT! A doctor on tv recommends this for weight loss. I had a difficult time finding it. Thank you Swanson for carrying this. By the way, It's working!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definate difference! My daughters doctor suggested she start taking a probiotic and after reading about all the benefits I thought it couldn't hurt me to start either. After a little research I decided to try Swanson Probiotics Lactobacillus Gasseri. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!! I don't feel near as weighed down and bloated a I used to. As many others have said, "I JUST FEEL BETTER". I would definitely recommend giving it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great probiotic I recently started a weight loss diet and have included both the probiotic Lactibacillus Gasseri and the prebiotic Inulin as supplements. I was motivated by research suggesting that a healthy gut microbiome is of key importance for metabolic health. I read about clinical trials of this probiotic with overweight adults and was impressed by the results, so decided to give it a try. The diet is going beautifully so I plan to continue the supplements I've been taking. I also tried opening a capsule and using this probiotic as a starter with milk in my yogurt maker. The result was a tasty drinkable yogurt, great for smoothies. The first few times I purchased this product I used a popular online retailer, but discovered that has better pricing. Probiotics may lose viability if exposed to extreme heat. During these hot summer months, I ship my order to my office where packages are delivered to an indoor storage area. That's better than letting it sit in a hot mailbox. I hope the package is protected from extreme heat in transit. Next year I'll be sure to place an order before summer arrives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good One! I have taken many pro and pre biotics over the years and never noticed any difference, which didn't surprise me as I am a healthy person to begin with. So I take them for a while and then I stop, and don't notice any changes, so my diet must be good. I have only been taking these now for a few days, and like one of the other reviewers said, I just feel better. Not sure exactly what it is but it's true. About the weight loss, one can only hope! But I tend to think that feeling better, could easily lead to naturally losing weight, over time. As always time will tell, but one thing you do know, when there are further studies on this, Swanson will let us know! Until then, I will definitely keep taking this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from first time an old friend told me to try it, so far so good, it took couple weeks+ to start to make me notice, very important to take daily for full benefits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just makes me feel better I have to say that I have never taken probiotics. It was suggested that I try this particular probiotic. Didn't know if it would help me at all, but it has. I just feel better. Swanson has great products and when I run out I will be back for more. Thank you !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lactobacillus Gasseri I have just started to use this product. Not sure if my review at this time is reliable. But, I do notice my digestion system seemed to work better than before. I will take it longer to have a better evaluation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No Magic Bullet This is an additional strain of probiotic bacteria that almost no other product contains. The claims about weight loss are questionable. BUT generally the more diverse the community of intestinal microorganism colonizing your gut the better.

Q: Why does the color and smell seem to be different than my last order?

A: Natural color variations can occur from batch to batch. Botanical ingredients have a distinct and earthy odor noticeable after opening the bottle.
