My daughter has been taking a "wheat and gluten free" multivitamin for several weeks now........and I discovered this morning that there is BARLEY GRASS and OAT GRASS in it....could this be a problem? Know of a good multi-vitamin...? She was told by dr. to stay away from wheat, corn, oats, dairy, etc. AND, don't know how we missed it, but on a snack bar, in clear printing it says "OATS"...so that has glutened her, also...more clues to why she is not feeling well. :( Thanks.

I have been taking Genesis Today's 4 Total Nutrition liquid vitamins. It's tastes awful but I would swear by it. I get mine at Whole Foods,

I use GNC's SoloDay. It's relatively cheap for a multivitamin (about $6 for 90 pills), and it is also soy free. It works great!

Nature Made is gluten-free and I have taken it for years now. Last week I was in a Puritan Pride store and they claim their vitamin is gluten-free, but it has barley grass and truthfully--I dont care if they think there isnt enough barley in it to constitute gluten--it's not up to them to decide how much is not enough for me. I wont purchase their vitamins ever, now. Deb

We urge all doctors to take time to listen to your patients.. don't "isolate" symptoms but look at the whole spectrum. If a patient tells you s/he feels as if s/he's falling apart and "nothing seems to be working properly", chances are s/he's right!

I have to avoid corn too. I use Futurebiotics multivitamin for women (free of corn, dairy, gluten, etc), though I am sure they would have a gluten and corn free version for childern or younger folks if that one isn't appropriate. Also, I take Country Life (free of corn, gluten, dairy, etc) calcium and biotin, and they make a ton of various vitamins too. I found both of these at Harry's, which is part of the Whole Foods stores.

Be careful about vitamins--even if they are gluten free, they might be more "neutral" than "positive." Consumer Reports investigated vitamins, and found that many don't have all the nutrients they claim on their labels. Even more of those had undigestible elements--even if they were in the vitamin, your body could only absorb a certain percentage of them.

I probably sound like a broken record, but I highly recommend Usana vitamins. I was on a run-of-the-mill gluten-free vitamin, and I was still having lots of wierd symptoms. My dad bought me a months' supply, and I had a night-and-day difference. If I forget to take my vitamins for a few days, the weird stuff comes back: anxiety, tingling fingers and toes, chest pains, dizziness, all that. They're pricey, but it is completely worth it to feel healthy!

I know of a great whole food supplement that is better than any vitamin I've ever taken and it is gluten-free. It's called Juice Plus - it's a capsule that has the concentrated powder of 17 fruits and vegetables. Because it includes only the outer portion of the oat and barley grain it is gluten-free. Me and my family have been taking it for 2 years and are healthier than ever. I'm the only one in my family with Celiac and getting the nutrients from these fruits and veggies every day is far better than any manufactured vitamin out there.

If you want more info, you can email me at my other address - free2behealthy@optonline.net and I can send it to you.

Also, it's free for kids between 6 and 15 years old through their Children's Research. That's how my daughters get theirs. Me and my husband take it and get it for free for my 2 girls. Great nutrition at a great savings.

Good luck! :)

The suppliment I use and trust is one I get from Whole Foods called Blue Bonnet Maxi One.
It's gluten free, corn free, wheat free, barley free, rice free, sodium free, sugar free, milk free, and yeast
free, one complaint though it's really big!

It's good to see more companies making gluten free supplements. :) I definitely prefer Juice Plus though because it is a whole food and not a vitamin. I love that it is the fruit and vegetable powders in an easy to swallow vegetarian capsule. And the Chewables are pretty good and the Gummies are great - we even eat them as a snack in my family.
