    I have been reading lately about candida and wondering about probiotics and gluten intolerance.  For some reason just the idea of swallowing bacteria just doesn't seem right to me.  Embarassed 

    What I'm curious about is this:  would everyone who starts the true gluten free diet (grain free) benefit from probiotics?  Do all people with gluten intolerances need probiotics for a time? Or would not taking them eventually work itself out, just maybe take longer? 

    Of course, cost is always a factor.  Then there's trying to find a brand that is actually safe.  Sometimes this diet sure seems overwhelming…….

    I know they have different kinds of Probiotics.  The reason for these is to ensure the balance of the right kinds of flora and bacteria in our stomachs and bowels. Antibiotics can kill these important bacteria. I know they have dairy or yogurt type Probiotics, and they have some made from Kelp and Sea Weeds, or green.  Again, I think we have to look at ingredients as we do with anything.  Anyone allergic to peanuts or eggs has to do this too. Yogurt is bacteria. That is how we get yogurt. If you look at it like that, it makes sense. They say in ancient times, Moses and the Isrealites ate yogurt to keep their bowels open as they traveled in the deserts. Thought that bit of info was interesting. Laugh

    As in everything else, probiotics are not created equally.  Only the refrigerated types are useful, most dry ones, the bacteria has already died.  Every probiotic I tried made me ill, so I I have no plans of trying them again.

    I didn't even know they had refrigerated probiotics, except for yogurt. Surprised

    Probiotics can be a major factor in healing the gut after a life time of gluten induced damage.  New studies are showing that gluten actually changes the normal gut bacteria thus helping to induce intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome).

     

    We have just posted a gluten free high quality probiotic on the site.  You can view them at the following link:

    /gluten-free-food-sources/max-digest/

    It is called Biotic Defense.

    All the best.Smile

    Do the probiotics that are sold on the GFS site dairy free?
