Help - I Need Help With The Ingredient List!
0

10 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell if these ingredients are gluten free? I am having major trouble with this!

Here is the list

Lycium Chinese, Vitis coignetiae, Myrica rubra, Maninaria japonica, Morus australis, Rubus buergeri, Elaeagnus montana, Hizikia fusiforme, Artemisia montana, Plantago asiatica, Mountain Spring Water. The product is 100% natural and totally vegetarian.

I know just because it says natural and vegetarian does not make it gluten free.

Thanks in advance

It is actually a new probiotic that I had been researching, and I finally ordered it today. I couldn't believe this is on the packaging """"Recommended for infants, children, pregnant or nursing mothers, the elderly and those with compromised immune system"""" The product is called - Dr. Ohira's, Essential Formulas Inc., Dr. Ohhira's 12 Plus Probiotic Formula

It is supposed to be so good for you that mostly nutritionists and Drs carry it, and take it. It is also one that the alternative dr's suggest.

I am anxious to try it, it should be here by Sat or Mon. I can post after I take it for a bit if you like. I know that you take a lot of it in the first 5 days -

Most of the reviews I have read are all fantastic. Especially for IBS, and helps with acne too.

Interesting....I googled the acne-helping aspect of it and people seem to really like the stuff. I'm kind of curious to try it now. Keep us posted on how it goes.

Here's the update -

I took these pills for almost a week. I did get an email from the company, and I talked to them on the phone...they did tell me that they were gluten free. The person told me that their 6 yr old neice takes 7 of these pills a day.

I started with the loading dose that was recommended. At first they did give me energy, and I slept better at night(that's not why I was taking them, but...they did). But I think I started to have a healing crisis, but not for sure as I started to do a lot of itching, and had some immediate nueropathy problems so I think they have something in them that my system doesn't agree with. The flyer that came inside the box says there is 82 other ingredients but they were not willing to tell me what they were..so I thought it best to stop taking something that I don't know all the ingredients too.

I had to go back to the probiotics that I was taking in the beginning.

P.S. My skin looked awesome all week!

    • Thank you for going through my long post and responding. I have been both dairy and gluten-free free for 10 months now. Yes, even I was worried about other food allergies. I mentioned it to my GI doc and asked if I need food allergy test to eliminate other allergens. He said, food allergy tests give a lot of false positives and are not accurate. He said: not everything is because of food allergy and it's refractory celiac which is causing issues as the jejunum biopsy, done recently, is showing villous flattening.

      My doubt: 1. If I have so much damage in my small intestine (villous flattening) then how was I keeping fine for 6-7 months ( eating eggs, soy, rice and meat) - was constantly losing weight though - but was able to work out regularly - not much fatigue. 2. If it is other food allergens ( out of mentioned allergens, I take eggs, soy chunks, almonds only) why does it happen only few times and not always - I keep well for 7-8 days and then fall sick again - this without any change in diet.  
    • Oh, Trish at the GlutenFreeWatchDog tested Planter's honey roasted peanuts three years ago.  The can did not state gluten-free, but showed no gluten ingrediants (per Kraft policy).  Test result: less than 5 part per million which is pretty much gluten-free.  
    • What if it were something else that glutened you?  Maybe you ate too much of a good thing?  I once (three months post dx) ate too much gluten-free fried chicken, vomited, passed out and fractured my back (osteoporosis) in the process.  Paramedics, ER doc and Cardio all thought I was having a heart attack.   No.  It was sheer gluttony and bad bones.  Not good to overload with a damaged gut.    Maybe you did get some contaminated nuts.  Afterall, anything processed is suspect.  What might be well tolerated by some, might be too much for others.  We all have our various levels of gluten intolerance.   The old 20 parts per million is just a guideline, but science does not really know (lack of funding......doe anyone really care enough to find out?)  My hubby has been gluten-free for 15 years.  When I was first diagnosed, I tried to eat the gluten-free foods that I normally gave him.   Problem was he was healed and I was not.  Things like Xanthan Gum in commercial processed gluten-free breads make me feel like I have been glutened, but it is just (and still is) an intolerance.  So no bread for me unless I make it myself using a different gum.   Too lazy, so I do without.   so, ask your doctor if you really want to know or lay off the cashews and test them again in a month using a certified gluten-free nut.  I wish this was easier!    
    • I have intolerances to a few foods now, so I was wondering about that.. I love cashews though, and a month or two ago I was eating them all the time with no problems at all. I mean, could I really have developed an intolerance to them since then? I don't know if they're made on shared lines (it didn't say on the package so I assumed they weren't), but I'll give them a call. I'm really, really sensitive to cross contamination. Even if something is just made in the same facility (but not on shared lines) it will make me sick. If that's not it, then I'm not really sure
    • Research with KP and find a celiac-savvy GI in your area ( read the biographies). and ask your PCP/GP for a referral to that specific GI (not his buddy).  Ask the GI for the rest  of the celiac panel or proceed with an endoscopy/biopsies -- 4 to six.  Keep eating gluten daily until all testing is complete.  Document and request in writing.  Do not worry about symptoms.  There are over 300 of them and some celiacs have none!   Research all that you can about celiac disease.  The University of Chicago has a great celiac website that has testing Information etc.   Poet me know how it works out.  Hope you feel better soon!
