Thats a good question because most products that are dairy free contain soy. I would suggest that you go to your local health food store and talk someone there. Usually the mom and pop health food stores know a lot about the products versus the major grocery store or popular vitamin chain employees and might be willing to even order something for you if they don't have it in stock.

bacteria tablets? Are you talking about probiotics? I don't think mine have any soy or dairy in them. Do they normally?

I take Primadophilus Reuteri and in very fine print on the bottle it reads:

May contain a minimal residual amount of milk or soy protein.

How are you with "minimal" Jamie lee?

dbab :)  That is very strange because that's (primadophilus reuteri) what I use and it does NOT say that anywhere on my bottle or the box it comes in, not to mention, it doesn't make sense since it promotes that it helps with lactose intolerance, which believe me it does, I no longer have to take lactaid pills anymore...along with aiding vaginal health and high cholesterol.

pb, It took me a while to find it on the bottle, it was very tiny so I'm thinking that if there is any trace amounts, its probably very little if any, I think its probably just precautionary.

It may also just be a CYA warning.

Sooooooooo Bizzare dbab, because I have literally used my magnifying glass and slowly checked the bottle and the box over a few times and have not found what you're referring to.


BTW, Jaimie Lee, prebiotics are actually foods that have probiotic affects, probiotics is what you're actually inquiring about...which are basically supplements of good bacteria, if you're not eating enough foods that contain it (prebiotics).

Do you get yours locally in Canada? I bought mine at the Vitamin Shoppe here in the US. Your right, very bizarre.

The discrepancy may be caused by where you guys are ordering your bottles from.  Remember how I found that the DA in the stores is chewable and has a trace of sugar alcohol, but when you order DA online you can get it in pill form without the sugar alcohol.  They may also market two versions--one regular and one for people allergic to everything.

Ya, Natures Way, same bottle description...yes I get mine locally in Canada.

I don't know about the Keri because they have it as far as I know in 3 types, the caps, powder form and pediatric form...I use the caps.

HUH! That's weird, well residual amount is almost not even worth mentioning but I'll tell you, it's sure taken care of my lactose intolerance just like it says and my high cholesterol as well...along with the vaginal health, no more yeast infections sure is nice too, or mouth ulcers.

I agree its good stuff, actually you are the one that got me started on it... thanks!! Also are you taking folic acid as well? I get frequent mouth ulcers due to Lupus and since I have been taking the folic acid (before I started the probiotics), now I get them maybe once every few months where as before they were almost a daily thing.

I'm glad you like the primadophilus...I don't take folic acid, I tried it for about 3 months when having a severe flare with my CD in the hopes that it would help my CD but I didn't seem to notice any benefit from it. Not saying that possibly somehow it may have still been a good idea, but with the list of other things I take, I narrow it down to continue with what helps my bowel issues.

Good luck, I know those mouth ulcers are a terribly painful thing to put up with.

How would this affect cholesteral? I would love to find something that would help with that and not have to add another med.

Has anyone tried Flora- Q ?

migraines since 1974 ; septic hip - 1999 with birth of daughter ; hip replacement 9/03 / MS limbo since 3/2004; dx acid reflux - 11/2006; dx compressed discs>dx RLS - 9/2006; dx IBS 5/05.
Klonopin, hydrocodone, butalbital, prevacid and anything else that helps.

I would like to know about how it helps cholesterol too. My husband's on cholesterol medicine and prescription-strength fish oil both. I think if he could drop the chemical cholesterol med in favor of something like this (and keep the fish oil--that's supposed to help his joints too), he'd prefer it. Probably cheaper, not to mention some of those cholesterol meds mess up your liver.

Boo, there are some people on here that take FloraQ and really like it. I've not heard anything bad about it, so it's just a matter of personal preference, really. Some people find certain brands help better than others (because of the combination of certain strains of bacteria). Might as well try it and see how it does.

I don't know how, maybe there's a certain strain of bacteria that aids it, all I know is it says so on the side of the box under "additional benefits" which is where it also mentions vaginal health and lactose intolerance.

And my levels are good now where they used to be way too high.
 
 
Here's a link I found regarding it...you may have to copy and paste into your search engine...

I tried flora Q, but you have to take so many and that makes it get pretty expensive, so I went back to the primaodphilus, I found it more effective and affordable.
