Hi...just want some input on multivitamin supplements for women(I'm 41).  Diagnosed with Celiac the Fall of 2011...doing a lot better(whoohoo), but still having fatigue. 


Also, I notice some multivitamins have "wheat grass"...I'm getting mixed input on whether or not it is ok.  My first reaction is "no" to anything with the word "wheat"...anyone know?




I just picked up Core Daily-1 by Country Life

As far as I can tell, the jury's still out re: verdict on wheat grass. Personally, I wouldn't chance it though. I'm a bit like you, if it mentions wheat, I give it a swerve. As well as having Coeliacs disease, I also am very sensitive to wheat and won't touch anything unless it's wheat and gluten free.

Too new to answer your question about wheat grass, but my doc recommends dividing the multi-vitamin in two and taking a 1/2 in the morning and another at night for better absorption.

I like the idea of dividing the vitamin in half.  That makes sense...especially until the gut fully heals!

I have been really happy with all the Country Life G F vitamins (mutli, C, D, etc.) mostly because they work well and do not give me

any stomach upset like some multis can.


P.S. I have read all the info about wheat grass, but I avoid it anyway. FWIW
