Corn Free/gluten Free Prenatal Vitamins?
0

5 posts in this topic

I recently discovered corn is making me sick :/ I'm currently breastfeeding and trying for baby #2 and have noticed my prenatal vitamins contain corn starch (women's one a day). I've tried looking online for ones without any corn or corn derivatives and that are gluten-free. No luck other than these ones called Garden of Life Raw BUT they contain onion juice and I'm allergic to onions...ugh! Anyone know of corn free and gluten free prenatal vitamins?

I am in the same boat. From what I've seen, it doesn't look like there's any that's truly corn free and gluten free. I am having the same problem with B12. Can't find any.

 

We're trying to have a baby and so far I am only taking folic acid from Kirkman's Labs. I have no reaction to it so that's good.

 

Let me know if you find any!

There are a couple prenatals that don't have corn that I've found. The one I have right now is Vitanica Maternal Symmetry. I got it at my local health food store. It says "This product contains no: preservatives, binders, artificial colorings or flavorings, sugars, starch, lactose, salt, corn, wheat, milk,derivatives, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, or shellfish." Picked it up for just shy of $40 with 180 capsules. However, it says to take a total of 6 pills a day which I didn't realize until later. I can't spend $40/mo on vitamins which sent me looking for another.

 

There is one other I have come across so far, I'll put the link below. It doesn't state on their website specifically that they're corn free, but they do state that they are hypoallergenic. I haven't emailed or called to see if any of the ingredients are corn derived or not though. Hope it helps.

I know people who have used Hakuna Matata vitamins - they're a kids chewable vitamin but they are gluten-free and corn-free, but they have onions in them because they're whole food based. :/ Standard Process also makes a gluten-free, whole food, multi-vitamin that could be used as a prenatal if you combine it with something else. It's tough to find corn-free vitamins though.

Ugh. I just talked to the manufacturer of Hakuna Matata... they originally said they were corn-free, but when I asked about specific ingredients I discovered that there are trace elements of corn in them as well as corn-starch in the Vitamin D3. :(
