Im new to Celiac and have question about probiotic and digestive enzymes.  My hubby bought me a probiotic and on the bottle it states enzymes for digestive health.  He swears this one pill is both probiotic and digestive enzymes.  I am still confused on these two. Can it be in one pill or is it two separate things that I need? Here is what it says on the bottle: Probiotic Multi-Enzyme Digestive Formula Containg Active Acidophilus Cultures

That just sounds like a probiotic to me but I am not very well versed in this area.

I take a Creon which is a digestive enzyme. A prescription was needed to get it.

I'm sure others will help. There are some around here who know this stuff well.

Probiotics replenish the beneficial bacteria in your gut.

Digestive enzymes help when your pancreatic enzymes are lacking due to pancreatic insufficiency (whether from celiac or pancreatitis).

 

They can be combined in one supplement, yes, but the potency is the key..

 

What is the brand name? let's take a look at the label--maybe see what's in the combo?.

We just realized it has wheat in it so not taking them..  Any suggestions on a good brand to take?  What should I look for in each of them? I am clueless with the Probiotics and Digestive Enzymes

I like Digest Gold enzymes

 

and Culturelle Probiotics( if you have diarrhea, they contain the strain lactobacillusGG which helps with that)

 

Another good one is Jarro-dophilus AF (allergy-free)

or Custom Probiotics

.

Others may have suggestions of brands they prefer.
