Need Suggestions About Probiotics

Recommended Posts

I just finished a round of antibiotics for an infection, and now I'm noticing more gas, bloating, etc :angry: . I've never used probiotics before, but I think it's time to try them. Can any of you suggest a gluten-free brand and/or the place you purchase them? What should I expect when I start taking them?

Thanks for your help!

Hi: I started probiotics about 6 months ago and am so impressed with the results! The brand I take is called Pro 8 and it is marked "gluten free". I purchasethem at my health food store--good luck. L.A.

You might consider taking a theraputic dose too. Couldn't hurt. I was eating 50 billion organisms a day and I quit cause I found I have all the symptoms of Celiac and needed to be tested.

Theraputic dose can be anywhere from 15 billion organisms to 30-40- or 50 billion.

Listen to your body! :)

My daughter is taking Super 8, by Flora it has 30 billion CFU - she had a round of antibiotics a few weeks ago.

I am now taking ultimate critical care, by renew life it has 50 billion cfu - we both have celiac ...

My other daughter takes renew life adult fomula, it has 15 billion CFU's - she is taking them to boost her immunity while she is at college. ... very tiny all her life, and fights to maintain a 100 pound weight today, still so tiny..

Everyone of those mentioned are gluten free, and purchased from a health food store. Some of free of milk, soy, corn, etc.... I was taking flora-jen 3, (gluten free too) purchased at a pharmacy, I really liked them, but I had to take several at different times a day to get the current dose I am now at....now I am taking one in the evening, it works better for me than in the morning. After the next month with this dose, I will be switching to a bit lower dose, perhaps a 30 billion cfu. I probably will be on them for a long time. I give them a lot of credit. I wish I would have known about them before now - I might now be as bad as I am today

plus...

My kids were all cesarean births, the bad news for them is that since they don't pass through the birth canal they miss out on the good bacteria they would pick up.... wish I would have known this a long time ago, it would have saved some agony giving them the infant dose way back when. My youngest may not have so many illnesses, or problems had I known.

You will see you may have to play around, experiment, with them until you find the right one for you, or the right dose for you..

I posted this before - perhaps it will help you http://www.usprobiotics.org/

Vinco's makes a really good one, I can't remember the name, but it's a 25 billion cultures.

It's really good.
