:) 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

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)

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.

    • I havent used it, not much of a baker tbh, but this one looks good: http://alittleinsanity.com/gluten-free-pie-crust-recipe/
    • As you say, there's no test, it's diagnosed by exclusion, so there's no metrics to check to assess compliance other than anecdotal response to symptoms. Conversely, I've not seen anything that says that NCGI can resolved or be cured either.  This paper gives a good summation.  Basically, there's not much research period! That is changing though, I think there's research underway which could help give answers.
    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
