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

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

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)

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.

    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      after nearly 6 years gluten free, i still have some balance/anxiety/neuro issues.  they're the last to leave the symptom party, i'm afraid.  i attribute this to the years and years i went undiagnosed and untreated (25 years~! )  i don't have much faith in the medical field's intelligence or in their ethics. funny story:  my obgyn bill had a charge on it that my insurance denied - $25.00 for 'smoking cessation intermediate 5-8 min'  WHAAAAAT?!  (the doctor said it would be a good idea if i quit smoking.  i'm like 'no shit, sherlock')  called the billing office and told them i'm not paying it.  WHY?  1.  do you have any idea how much money i would owe my dad????!!!  2.  i don't smoke with my vagina.  they took off the charge
    • 9 year Old going through testing
      because they make more $$ treating symptoms   every time i see the new 'miracle' pills for 'ibs-c' and 'ibs-d' it just makes me crazy.  ibs is just a symptom..........  as are all these other things that can be reversed just by changing the diet.  but shhhh let's not talk about it, keep the patient ill and miserable, and keep that $$ rolling in.   and to leave a child ill and in pain is just deplorable.  i'm sorry for him.  go git 'em, mama!
    • Do I have Celiac?
      My IgG is 37.6.  B12, D3, and iron deficient.  Hashimoto's thyroid.  Do I have Celiac?  
    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      Not really. She just got out of the hospital for the 2nd time. Upon discharge, they said she will continue to vomit. Makes it very hard to go to school. 
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      You are misunderstanding the term hidden gluten.  A food item, of which probiotics are not covered under, can legitimately have trace amounts of gluten and still be gluten free.  There is no test that can test down to zero, regardless of what you hear.  Most testing generally tests down to 5ppm and the vast majority........  most likely 99% of Celiac's, will not have an autoimmune reaction to the food.  I am an extremely sensitive, diagnosed Celiac and I eat some processed foods, from reputable companies, and I am doing phenomenal, 11 years gluten-free.  Lots and lots of other people have this experience also. This is not an example of hidden gluten. There can be food ingredients that may be made from a gluten component that may not be as easy to distinguish but if you learn label reading as you should, with time you will be easily able to identify what is safe or something that is questionable. Can it be daunting at first to learn all this new information?  Absolutely, but if you can read, you can learn. There are also many probiotics which are completely safe.  I have been taking them for 30 years and have never been glutened once from them.  The news reports (for what they are worth now) say that there was gluten discovered in probiotics.  That does not mean all probiotics are suspect. You can find out from the Gluten Free Watchdog which ones failed and which ones did not, then make your choice to buy.  Supplements are not covered under the food laws but again.....read those labels and check with manufacturers!

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
