:) I have been using Probiotics from a Company NOW Foods. Here is what they say about shipping to Canada:

WHEN SHIPPING OUTSIDE THE U.S., all orders are insured because, without it, we cannot guarantee delivery or cover damages, if any. All packages are sent via either USPS , UPS, or DHL (unless otherwise instructed by customer). Orders delivered outside the continental United States will be charged actual US Portal Service Express shipping and handling costs. Click here to check USPS Global Express Mail shipping costs to your country; charges are based on the weight and destination. All packages are sent as non-prescription nutritional supplements for private use only. So far, all orders have been accepted in ALL continents. All orders are usually shipped within 24-72 hours.

We do not accept COD orders

IMPORTANT NOTE: For questions on large orders, orders outside the United States, or for special shipping instructions, please contact us.

If you are interested in ordering, the website address is:http://www.nowcatalog.com/.

I hope this helps.

:) YES!!! I feel that if I don't take them, I normally don't feel so good. I am also able to fight off other infections much easier!

I'm so glad that I could help.

Linda ;)

Bump!

I'm looking for a gluten-free probiotic also.

NOW foods uses Barley Grass and oat grass. I don't see a guarantee of gluten-freedom there.

My old probiotic used to give me a bit of stomach pain and after I learned more about celiac, I noticed it also uses Barley Grass - that's Garden of Life brand.

So I am still looking.

I googled and found a few non-name-brands - does anyone have any feedback on some of them?

THX!

I use Wakunaga Kyo-Dophilus Probiotic Supplements. They are gluten-free, and milk free. I originally tried a small bottle purchased at Vitamin Shoppe, and now I order a years' supply at a time from Lame Advertisement - which does ship to Canada according to their website. I've had very good results using them. For the first month I took two every day, now I take just one. They are mild and don't cause any stomach problems. Another big plus is that they do not require refrigeration, so you can travel with them. I've had other effective non-dariy probiotics that were more expensive, such as NATREN Superdophilus (which must be refrigerated), but the Kyo-Dophilus works just as well for me. If I had to limit my supplements to just a few items, this product would be on my short list.

Do you get Yakult in Canada? It is a probiotic drink in a tiny bottle which looks like milk. It tastes good a bit like juice. It is gluten free also. You have one of these small bottles per day.

According to their website it is sold in 30 countries and they started selling in Canada in 2007. Have a look in your supermarket. They keep it in the fridge section here with other milk drinks.

hey, im also a regular user of probiotic supplements. getting the right capsules is really one of the most important factor that you should consider in order to ensure the capsule's efficiency.

everytime i need probiotic capsules supply, the only company that i trust is Extreme Health USA. it is a legitimate company that can give you quality and affordable products. B)

I've used FloraQ2 for almost two years now. Works great, and says gluten free right on the label.

http://www.floraq.com/

It is expensive but worth it. I usually use it daily, but sometimes every other day. It can be purchased at drugstore.com, which makes it very easy to get.

Hi, SISU makes gluten free probiotics. Google SISU and you will find more info. Look under "products" and it is under organ health.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
