Yogurt/probiotics - Any Input?

Recommended Posts

Up until about 2 months ago I was having yogurt every morning, and feeling great. I got sick of it, and wanted some variety and almost immediately started having issues. Acid reflux, excessive gas, abdominal pain, abdominal cramping, and many others. I'm thinking that what is missing is the probiotic element to things here. Fiber isn't an issue, I'm eating Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free oatmeal in the mornings.

 

Has anyone had a good experience with a probiotic they can recommend, or would it be easiest to just eat some yogurt like I used to?

Why not start up yogurt again? I eat it almost everyday. It's so easy to make it interesting. I tend to get plain Greek and add different fruit like kiwi, banana, blueberries, whatever is in season, homemade granola (especially since you can tolerate oats), almonds, dried fruit, honey or cinnamon if you want a sweetener. It never gets old!

 

I'm not very good about being consistent with taking a probiotic but I think they really help with digestion. This is what I take, not sure if it's easy to get your hands on though: http://www.melaleuca.com/ProductStore/ProductDetail.aspx?sku=7774

I'm having the complete opposite problem. When I started taking a probiotic and eating yogurt again after going gluten free, I got very very sick. Extreme nausea to the point of almost vomiting and stomach pains. But it felt very different from the way I feel when I get glutened.  And the yogurt and the probiotics were completely gluten free and my symptoms hadn't started until I started those pills and eating the yogurt. They never bothered me before I went gluten free this past October. I'm still confused what all that was about but once I stopped the pills and the yogurt, I felt so much better, it was crazy. Something about active culters in the yogurt and probiotics are giving me such an adverse reaction, so I'm in a completely different boat than you.

My nutritionist recommended Align probiotics and I love them. They finally got rid of that last bit of 'gut gurgle' that had lingered while I tried out other probiotics. They work really really well for me. Might be worth a try.
