:) 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.

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)

Make your own!

Yogurt - it is the very best probiotic. Nothing can beat it!

Rheumatic fever at age 5 and again at age 6. Antibiotics for 6 years to prevent strep throat.
Anemia, Mono, Hepititis, Pernicious Anemia, Enlarged Heart, Osteopenia, Vitamin D deficiency, Ataxia, Digestive issues, reactive hypoglycemia, and on and on and on!

Following the SCD diet after gluten free didn't solve symptoms. Much better and getting back my life!

I tried Yakult when I first went gluten-free and it bothered my stomach...finally got back to looking for another probiotic...thought I'd update this thread regarding Now Foods Acidophilus/bifidus ...pulled off their website

Other Ingredients: Potato Starch, Gelatin (capsule), Cellulose, Silica and Magnesium Stearate (vegetable source). Contains milk derivative.

Note for those highly sensitive to milk protein: This product may contain minute amounts of casein.

Contains no: sugar, salt, yeast, wheat, gluten, corn, soy, egg, shellfish or preservatives.


Not recommending yet...just ordered with Amazon/free shipping.

-Lisa

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

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.
