Digestive Enzymes And Probiotics
0

6 posts in this topic

Hi. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for gluten-free, DF, soy free, yeast free, corn free probiotics and digestive enzymes? I'm currently taking digest gold w/ probiotics, and I like it, but I just realized that it has Non GMO soy oil in it. I started the GAPS diet, so I now need to avoid soy as well. I'm thinking that soy may have been a culprit this whole time without even realizing it. So, I'd like to avoid as much as I can. I am also on a tight budget, so I am looking for quality products with reasonable prices, if possible. Does anyone know of any digestive enzymes w/ probiotics in them that are free of all of these possible allergens? Any suggestions/recommendations would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Tracey

Tracey, I take Bluebonnet Power-Zymes (free of milk, egg, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat, soybeans, corn, yeast, gluten, barley, sodium and sugar.) 100% Kosher vegetable capsule, rice bran, purified water.

The probiotic I take is Florasmart by Renew Life. It says may contain traces of milk proteins from fermentation ingredients.

Many people have posted about Culturelle and that they really like it. There is a dairy free one. You can do a search on here to find the thread.

I take Culturelle and it has worked well for me. My local Wal-Mart carrries it and so far that's the best price I've found. They have several products. The Digestive Health is both gluten-free and dairy-free.

I use Huston Natrasuiticals. THey are supposed to be free of ALL allergics. Email is houstonni.com. A bit expensive, but well worth it.

I have looked into this alot myself. I found that in my local healthfood/natural food store, they sell refrigerated probiotics. They are a bitmore expensive but are much more potent. After a probiotic becomes room temperature, they loose their potency. Also, there is something called Kefir. It reminds me of a yogurt drink, but is packed full of probiotics. I believe it has the highest amount of probiotics that you can find in a product. And it's really good! I have problems with lactose and some of it is also lactose free.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
