Can probiotics cause stomach pain. This is a question we get regularly asked. People take a probiotic, particularly if they’d take an enzyme probiotic formula, I’ll get sometimes a comment, “Oh, I got this pain in my tummy. I took this capsule and an hour later I feel like vomiting or I felt sick or …” Look, anything’s possible with supplements. Some people react to drinking purified water, they get sick from drinking that. So people can react to all kinds of stuff.
When you have a reaction, especially with a probiotic, I start to think what type of bacteria you’ve got in your gut and what’s really going on there. So try it from this angle. If you get any kind of sensation like that with a probiotic, always make sure you take it with food. Don’t take it away from food. Some people can get away with probiotics away from food, but the general consensus is, from where I’m sitting, from the experts I’ve spoken to, that probiotic should be taken with food. So when we say with food, it can be the beginning of the meal in the middle of the meal or at the end of the meal. If you’ve got a very strong aggravation, take a probiotic right in the middle of the meal. That should lessen any chance of bad pain or things like this. More chance of getting this reaction if you take a probiotic enzyme formula rather than a probiotic formula.

So if you look at CanXida Restore, for example, that’s an enzyme and probiotic formula. Now, enzymes are not the best taken on an empty tummy as it is. Again, some people can get away with it, but in many can’t. So if you were to take CanXida Restore, for example, and you were to say, “Ah, tummy’s hurting. I can’t have the whole capsule. I’m got to open it up or …” Try this tip. So with your main meal, take that capsule right in the middle of the main meal. That should really stop aggravations or bad pain. If you still have a problem, open the supplement up, pour half of it out, sprinkle it on the food, mix it through, and then have it. See if that mitigates.
What you’ll find is initially what was a problem over a period of a few weeks or a month will become less a problem and it won’t be a problem anymore. just because you had a reaction the first or second time you took a supplement, it doesn’t mean to say you’ll always have that reaction. Just because you went to the gym the first time and you hurt your butt and you couldn’t sit down for three days, it doesn’t mean to say every time you drive past the gym, the butt’s going to hurt automatically, is it? No, it’s not because the butt will get used to the exercise and in time it won’t hurt anymore. Persistence breaks resistance.
