Why I Use Probiotics for my Daughter’s Celiac Disease

Why I Use Probiotics for my Daughter’s Celiac Disease

 

Before my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac disease, I had never heard of it, nor gluten, probiotics, vili, etc.  Needless to say, we had a huge learning curve and boy did we research.  Reading labels was something I had never done before then and learning just how many different names “gluten” is hidden in was just the beginning.

Shopping trips consisted of veggies, fruits, and protein.  Nothing processed, nothing made.  I don’t know about your kids, but telling a 4 year old she can’t have all those things she was accustomed to eating was no small feat.

Doctor’s Recommendation

One of the best things her pediatrician recommended for us, was to find a great probiotic to help with digestion.  So, back to some research.  We had some hits, but mostly misses on our mission to find one that suited her dietary needs.  Not to mention, she is Autistic and had oral texture issues as well.  So gummies, although ideal, didn’t always work and forget trying to get her to swallow pills.

Which brings me to these yummy gummies:

We found these gummy probiotics by Nutra, and although I feared the same result as all those other gummies we tried, these are different.  For one, their texture a more solid type of gummy.  The taste isn’t as “sweet”, but they’re not bland either.  They are slightly powdery, but it’s not overpowering.  My daughter loves them!

Best thing about these is that they fit the bill.  It helps with her digestion AND it’s gluten and sugar free.  We love them!  Anything that helps her tummy function better and I don’t have to fight her to take is a plus in this mom’s book.  Here’s a link of where I ordered these: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01I02T9B0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498168308&sr=1-1&keywords=probiotic+gummies+kids&m=

So, what’s your favorite probiotic?  I’d love to her about those as well.
