New poll: Do you take probiotics?

Our new poll concerns probiotics.   According to Kathleen LaPont on Celiac.com, “Gluten is made up of glutenin and gliadin proteins. Gliadin is only partially digested in the small intestine and the resulting peptides are responsible for the inflammation and intestinal tissue damage in people with celiac disease. Because probiotic bacteria have been shown to digest gluten proteins to harmless peptides, supplementation with probiotics may be beneficial for people with celiac disease.”

So, our new poll is simple, do you take probiotics?
