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.

    • hey! Wondering if I can get some good info/help from you guys! I just signed up for this website couple weeks ago. Whenever I would Google things this was always the first to pop up and I always found info on things I googled. I am pretty new to the gluten free thing. I had a hernia surgery back in Jan and after that I kept throwing up after eating, the DR. told me it was probably acid reflex caused from surgery but all the meds I tried nothing helped. I went back and was told to cut gluten out. I have been doing so since. When I first started I felt like I had it under control and didn't throw up for 3 weeks, now I find it happening more often. I do buy gluten-free things and read labels to the best I can. My frustration comes from not knowing what its from. How do you know if its from the day before or what you just ate? I hate not knowing. Especially when I haven't had gluten (or so I think) I have been keeping a journal but I just find it so hard. I get this feeling in my stomach and can feel it in my throat. Sometimes I puke once sometimes 5 times! Yesterday for lunch I made an omlet with chicken mushrooms and feta cheese. I threw up almost 20 min after. I have also tried the no dairy thing and it doesn't seem to make a difference so I don't think dairy is an issue as well.
    • I have been on a gluten-free diet for exactly one-year. During that time, I have had no stomach issues or problems when I inadvertently ingested gluten. The other day, I had GI discomfort (no vomiting or diarrhea) and my blood pressure spiked t0 200/98 (normally 119/75). As my GI discomfort subsided, my pressure crept back to normal. This took about 16-hours. I know that I ingested something with gluten, which I had thought was gluten-free.  It never bothered me before. Should I expect that the longer I'm gluten-free, the more susceptible I will be to having a pronounced reaction to inadvertent gluten exposure? Has anyone else had similar experiences with blood pressure spikes?
    • If this is helpful: My local public library had a copy of Breaking the Vicious Cycle by Elaine Gottschall.  There is a Facebook group, I believe it is easily found by searching SCD Diet, and it's a closed group.  If you go directly to the official website of Breaking the Vicious Cycle, there's lots of information for free available, including the basics about the intro diet and beyond.  I would go to the original source of this diet rather than go to other groups/books who have perhaps veered away from Elaine Gottschall's fundamentals. Best wishes to you!
    • AdrienJ, thank you so much! I dream of traveling more one day. I have spondylitis too. I'm so glad that a gluten free and casein free diet is helping you feel your best!
    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
