New Probiotic Book Series Launching This Month by Health Point Press

First Book Features Probiotic Lactobacillus GG

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 14, 2011) - Everyday, millions of people all over the world are consuming probiotics in the form of capsules, pills, powders, and in foods and beverages. Despite Probiotics' enormous popularity, few people are properly educated, and many myths still exist surrounding them.

According to David Knight, Managing Editor at Health Point Press, the most frequently asked Questions are: Are all Probiotic Strains equal? Which Probiotics are the most effective for managing certain types of health conditions? With so many different strains available on the market today, it can be extremely confusing and complicated for most consumers to understand and know the differences.

Beginning September 15, 2011, Health Point Press will be publishing a new series of books that will feature some of the most popular strains of Probiotics available today. The first book in the "Probiotic Series," titled "Probiotics: A Foundation for Gastrointestinal Health in Infants, Children and Adults," will examine and feature the Probiotic Lactobacillus GG, which is contained in one of the leading Probiotic brands -- Culturelle®. Readers will learn the latest information, research and benefits on this specific strain of Probiotic.

Two of the most respected Drs./Experts in this field, Dr. Eamonn Quigley, Former President of the World Gastroenterology Organization, and Co-Author, Dr. Jon Vanderhoof, Pediatrician, will provide readers with vital information on why Probiotics are the foundation to overall health and well-being.

Along with Drs. Quigley and Vanderhoof, Health Point Press was very fortunate to have worked with i-Health Inc.'s Culturelle® brand on this book project. Their extensive experience with Lactobacillus GG provided invaluable suggestions and editorial review, according to Knight.

"As a leading probiotic brand, Culturelle® strongly supports Health Point Press' commitment to educating consumers on the latest science and benefits of Probiotics."

Michael Petschek, Sr. Brand Manager, Culturelle® Probiotic
