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.

    • How does that happen!? Congratulations!
      (But still curious!)

    • The sluggishness, hair loss, and weight gain made me think of hypothyroidism, but then the diarrhea throws me  - unless the two things are unrelated. Coincidental but unrelated. I looked up positive lactoferrin test on labsonline:
      Lactoferrin is a stool (fecal) test that is used to detect inflammation in the intestines. Intestinal inflammation is associated with, for example, some bacterial infections and, in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), it is associated with disease activity and severity. The test may be ordered to distinguish between IBD and non-inflammatory disorders and to monitor IBD disease activity. Also the bands refers, if I'm not mistaken, to neutrofils and as others have said, usually this means that there is an infection or inflammation present and the bone marrow is producing more WBCs and releasing them into the blood before they are fully mature. I'm sure you would have mentioned medications you were taking if you or a medical provider thought they may be affecting you negatively. Let us know if there is anything else we can do. You have a lot of people here ready to help. Plumbago   ETA: I see the doctor chalked something up to your occasional use of ibuprofen. Sorry, I could not figure that one out, and how it had much to do with your symptoms.    
    • http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Maybe this article can help.   Malabsorption of nutrients can make the body do weird things.  
    • Thank you!  I'll check it out.
    • They are N/A because they were not tested for on those dates. Also, I have never been on thyroid medication so I can rule that possibility out. Is it possible that TSH fluctuates before hypo presents itself? It has been 4 months since my last test and a few symptoms that I thought would resolve themselves by now on my gluten-free diet have persisted which is making me question these thyroid numbers further.
