Need a Probiotic without gluten, soy, corn, dairy or lactose. I read labels and appreciate seeing things market as being free of gluten and dairy, but nobody seems to state the other stuff. Any recommendations?

I find NOW Foods and Source Naturals are pretty good at labeling. Have you checked what they have on their respective websites?

My GI doctor--and I :)--highly recommend Culturelle--just be sure to get the one labeled DAIRY free.

I have heard of many reacting to culturelle. We are HUGE fans of Custom Probiotics. He is a dream to work with and can answer all your questions. Sent us about a month sample to see how well it worked and we were hooked after day 3!

I used the Custom Probtioics myself for a while and he IS great to work with! Very knowledgable. But they are expensive and some folks cannot afford them.

I am concerned by your statement that you have heard of many reacting to Culturelle. In what way? I would hate to think something I recommended is making people react somehow. :(

Custom are pricy up front but with the small amount needed it works out to $10-15/month.

People in the food allergy world have reported GI reactions to Culterelle in those with dairy issues. I have not tried it because of these reports as my kids are dairy allergic.

But there is a DAIRY FREE version of Culturelle--as I mentioned specifically to him above--for those who need dairy-free. Otherwise, I would not have made the suggestion in the first place.

But you should always do what's best for you guys, of course.

GutPro probiotic powder has a product with ABSOLUTELY NO FILLERS! http://organic3.com/gutpro/
They have some gluten in their facility but tested to below 5 ppm the last I checked. They are very responsive to email questions.

I've been taking Flora 'Udo's choice Adult's probiotic' with no issues. It doesn't specifically say that it's gluten-free, but it does say 'Vegetarian' on the label and lists the probiotic strains and then lists Other Ingredients as: Potato Starch, silicon dioxide, ascorbic acid, stearic acid and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. I got them at a local Super Supplements store for about $17 for 60 capsules, 17 billion cells.

I know you mentioned that. I am saying that I know of dairy allergic people who have still reacted to them. I am not sure if it's x-con or what. I am aware of the dairy free but question the accuracy of that label.

I understand people told you they had a reaction of some kind. I cannot say if that is true or not--and I do not wish to debate it or anything. What people say is what they say, right? I believe you when you say you heard it.

But, we have people on here who say one product gives them a "gluten reaction" and dozens more say: "Not me! Not ever!"

so, maybe it is something ELSE in these products?

Why on earth would a reputable company place a voluntary label of dairy-free on a product and risk serious lawsuits should someone have a life-threatening allergic reaction? That does not make sense to me.

Again, to the OP---use your best judgement.

Oh no, your question has me in a tail spin. I just started using and was going to recommend nutra-Metrix Probiotic / Enzymes (brought @ the Doctors office) using it along with Ultimate Aloe drink. It is a vegetarian mixture with no wheat, gluten, soy, yeast, starch, milk, salt or preservatives.

My dilemma, I started researching other recommended Probiotic from the posts and my brand uses Lactospore (Bacillus Coagulans) and all other brands use Lactobacillus. Does anyone know is there a difference, do you have a preference, should I use what others have recommended and from what I have read, is my PCP blowing smoke up my --- and selling me what she uses and promotes?

Cathey,
I looked up the brand you are using and it sure looks like an excellent product with various strains and substantial supportive published materials. It should do the trick for you! It is a multi-strain which is preferred.

10 billion active Colony Forming Units (CFUs)
10 scientifically chosen probiotic strains:
Lactobacillus plantarum
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Lactobacillus salivarius
Lactobacillus casei
Lactobacillus helveticus
Bifidobacterium bifidum
Bifidobacterium longum
Bifidobacterium breve
Bifidobacterium infantis

I would guess you will see many benefits from using it!

I started my regime with Custom Probiotics because I wanted multiple strains and I knew the owner of the company was a chemist who knew what he was doing! :)

I ONLY went to the Culurelle recently because (1) my GI doc suggested it had another strain to populate my gut and (2) it was less expensive and I was having serious dental work done and the money had to go there :lol:

Here is an article discussing the lactobacillus GG strain(which is in Culturelle) and has been studied by doctors at Tufts University. In part, it states:

"Lactobacillus GG (Lactobacillus G.G., strain ATCC 53103) is a bacterium that occurs naturally in the human digestive tract. This strain of bacteria was first isolated by two Boston scientists, Professors Sherwood Gorbach and Barry Goldin, who were searching for a strain of lactobacillus that could colonize the human intestine and thereby exert the beneficial effects which Metchnikoff had hoped to produce by his yogurt cultures. As guides for their research, Gorbach and Goldin established a number of
criteria which they believed their ideal probiotic candidate should satisfy. The bacterium would be: 1) be of human origin; 2) capable of attaching to human intestinal (epithelial) cells and colonizing the gut to prevent competition from invading pathogens; 3) resistant to acid and bile, able to survive transit from the stomach to the intestines; 4) exhibit beneficial, health-promoting activity in the host system; and 5) exhibit a high degree of safety.

In 1985, Gorbach and Goldin isolated their ideal probiotic “bug,” which was designated, appropriately, Lactobacillus GG (LGG). Today, LGG is the best-studied and most extensively documented probiotic lactic-acid bacteria strain in the world. This strain stabilizes human intestinal microflora and hastens the removal of pathogenic microorganisms. Its beneficial effects in treating gastrointestinal disorders and bacterial and viral infections are extremely well documented, as is its ability to strengthen the immune system. In addition to ongoing studies of LGG’s ability to prevent gastrointestinal infections, some interesting preliminary observations on the antitumor effect of LGG in the colon have also been reported."
