Nutrametrix Supplements

3 posts in this topic



I recently just joined and find this forum to be very helpful. After two long years of all sorts of weird issues (joint pain, numbness and tingling, acid reflux) and thousands of dollars in medical bills with no answers for my symptoms turns out about 3 weeks ago monday my biopsy and blood test came back positive for Celiac Disease.. FINALLY looks like i may have an answer. 


Long story short my doctor is having me take Nutrametrix supplements ( ORAC, OPC-3, B-Complex, Might-a-mins, Aloe Vera Juice, and a Probiotic) To treat the nausea and burning sensation in my gut. Have any of you taken these supplements? Have they helped you? 



OPC-3                             2x daily empty stomach

Activated-B Complex


Nutriclean Probiotic     2x daily before meals 


Might-a-mins      after/or before meals or PRN (as needed)


Aloe Juice natural flavor     2oz 4-5x as PRN

I'm glad you have an answer, and welcome.


After looking up those supplements, my first thought is what stake does your doctor have in the company? If you purchase the cheapest way possible, 90 pills at a time, that is $200 for 45 days of supplements. And that's just the supplements, not the rest! Another $70 for probiotics, plus however many of the others you take. And at $26 a bottle for that aloe juice and 16  2oz servings you'll go through two bottles a week if that means 4-5 times a day as needed. I can tell you what I'd tell my doctor, no matter if I had the money to spend on it or not.


There are a lot of supplements and probiotics on the market. Your doctor having a financial stake in the company shouldn't influence which you choose to take. Have you been tested for vitamin deficiencies before you start taking anything or is your doctor just advising a random catch-all? A good B complex is something I see a significant number of people here say they take because they were deficient in B something or other. The ORAC and OPC-3 don't seem to offer any actual benefit, did the doctor provide sound medical reasoning on why you should be taking each of these? They both really seem an awful lot like snake oil to be perfectly honest.


I'm sure there will be people along with more knowledge of probiotics and supplements than I have. I have never taken mine in liquid form, I've always taken pills when I take them. I take ones with a USP stamp on them, which means they are independently reviewed by an outside source for quality. Nature Made is a good company and will label on their bottle if they are gluten free or not. It is my go-to company for supplements. I don't take a probiotic so I don't really have any advice on that one.

Thanks for the reply!


It was my doctors nurse practitioner who suggested I take those supplements. She was the first person I saw since being diagnosed and my symptoms included joint pain, headaches, numbness tingling, and bad stomach pains from dull to sharp. My GI told me my stomach was severely inflamed and would probably take about 6 months to heal.. Ill assume thats why I'm taking the Aloe Vera? My B-12 is also low at 300 not critical but for someone my age who eats healthy anyway should be around 550-700. The pro biotic and stomach enzymes are to help with digestion and stomach pain (is what i was told) As for the OPC and ORAC.. Looks like body cleansing and maybe some joint relief? I got blood drawn that day and don't understand most of the results but I do know I am not anemic I will get the results Thursday. I was told the Vili being dull and not being able to "pluck" nutrients that solid pills for vitamins would not be a good choice this early on for me. 


As for a financial stake.. Their office does sell these products however I did not buy them from their office... I do realize they are very expensive but at this point dealing with pain for 2 years ill do anything to feel better especially since I just got a full time Fire Department job and will be taking my PAT test in a week! So there was Urgency on my part.. I know it wont go away tomorrow but any relief would be great.. 


I will be seeing my actual PCP for the first time this Thursday and a nutritionist this Wens. I will update after those appointments. 


Thank you,

    • I have the same symptoms.  These symptoms have overlapped other issues that I have and have been left untreated for far too long. Now the pain has gotten worst. My GP believes it's my hiatal hernia.  I have pain below my breastbone, pressure pushing up my chest/throat, dizziness and nausea. 
    • Usually I'm using apps to tell me what celiacs have thought about the restaurants in the area and repeatedly eating at a few different places I haven't gotten sick. Now that I think about it, gluten was a definite possibility. I ,however, just got all negative results from all the following tests so I'm guessing I'm doing ok on that front. -Basic metabolic panel -Liver enzyme panel -CBC -Serum IgA -Tissue transglutaminase(tTG), IgA -Tissue transglutaminase(tTG), IgG -Thyroxine(T4), free direct serum -Thyroid stimulating hormone I thought the same thing about positive antibodies and non-celiac sensitivity reading this; l'm seeing his nurse practioner in two weeks so I'm going to take this and basically argue with what he said and see how that goes haha. I'm gonna guess not real well. I'm going to push being tested for other autoimmune diseases in addition.  
    • I was dx with duoedenitis end of August. No mention of a stomach, esophagus or duoendal ulcer. Just a small hernia. Less then 2cm. But I have a LOT of pain right below the breast bone and I jumped when it was recently touched on exam. I can even feel a small bump in the area. I feel so dizzy and unwell, like some kind of bacteria is invading my brain and am very queasy still.  My heart still feels weird too.  Bloodwork normal, a bit low on protein which is unreal because I get a ton of it but it is always is low if I have not eaten. Mildly elevated myeloycytes and basophils. My GI will probably not see me for a week or two, my primary care put me on sucralfate.  As soon as the food hits my digestive system I feel really weird all over, stomach, chest, throat, head. Just feel like I have this horrible thing infecting my body.  Did anyone feel ulcer pain and have it NOT be an ulcer? I suppose one could have developed since August. 
    • Hi AWOL, Since you weren't able to complete the 2 weeks gluten challenge for the endoscopy the results are not necessarily reliable.   So to be err on the side of caution I think you should assume you have celiac disease.  Your doctor should not assume you don't have it either since the challenge was not completed.  He has no proof that you don't have celiac disease.  He does have evidence that you have negative reactions to eating gluten though.
    • Hi Ironic Truth, Thanks for Replying. Wow I get bad joint pain too. So my opinion especially if he is eating gluten is to get him tested. I wish I had been tested when I was eating gluten 8 years ago .  I had tried 8 years ago initially to figure out what the heck was going on with me and my immune system. I started with a GP, went to Allergist/Immunologist etc. I gave up 4 doctors later when nothing seem to be found and you sense they start thinking lady you're a nut job . My cousin a diagnosed Celiac took over 2 years to be diagnosed and she is a nurse. My husband said for years "I think bread is bad for you" and in a desperate attempt to help myself -I gave up wheat after 2 weeks felt better 2 months later I went total gluten-free and felt very much better that was 4 years ago. So I have suspected NCGS or Celiac for a few years now. However getting someone to test you for it when you were classified IBS 20 years prior-well as is chronically heard on the forums here is perhaps the biggest challenge of all. One then just finally says ok I will just try this gluten-free thing myself. I was gluten-free for 3 1/2 years and improving. Then  I got gluten-ed in March of 2016 and I had worse symptoms then ever the joint pain arrived. I went to a new allergist who refereed me to another Allergist/Immunologist who deals with Celiacs and Food Intolerances. I did see a Rheumotologist in July 2016 since the muscle and joint pain was still lingering, who tested me and reported no antibodies. Back to the specialist who did more test and suggested the gluten challenge. It's likely me failing to complete 2 weeks caused it but the symptoms got real bad and I thought I'm going to have worse issues if I don't stop this.  Today my fingers are just starting to heal they were peeling during the gluten challenge among all the other symptoms I get, which I attribute to dehydration. The dry peeling fingers did not improve until I got the IV the day of the scope. Bizarrely I was looking forward to the scope hoping I'd get an IV with Meds and fluids becaus eI felt I needed it. I did see one abstract, I can't get my hands on the full article as you stated their is a link: Dig Dis Sci. 2005 Jan;50(1):126-9. Celiac disease and intestinal metaplasia of the esophagus (Barrett's esophagus). Maieron R1, Elli L, Marino M, Floriani I, Minerva F, Avellini C, Falconieri G, Pizzolitto S, Zilli M So I will pursue the path of monitoring the  Barrett's. Despite no official diagnosis for me, you are right Gluten is bad for me, I should avoid it, I will, and I'll stay on the forums. Good luck with you Boyfriend he is lucky to have you looking out for him.
