Nature's Gate Toothpaste gluten-free?
0

10 posts in this topic

Does anyone know if Nature's Gate Cherry Gel Natural Toothpaste (with Natural Cherry Flavor and Goldenseal) is gluten free?

I'm guessing yes because they put rice bran oil in it (not something companies do unless they are concerned about the gluten issue). But there are some ingredients which aren't specified--like "vegetable glycerin" so I can't tell for sure.

There's no 1-800 # and their website is down at the moment . . .

I'd also be concerned about the vegetable glycerin. Thing is, if they used rice bran and still don't say gluten-free, then I don't count that as carrying any weight. Sounds like gluten is just as possible as any other brand.

I just use baking soda and water. Works great, and you know it's safe. I suppose you could add some stevia if you wanted, and maybe some mint extract or something.

Crest and Colgate are gluten free. Tom's of Maine is also gluten-free.

Guess I'd better contact the company before trying the toothpaste. Right now I'm using Crest, but I'd like to switch back to using toothpaste with more natural ingredients.

Re: the baking soda idea---that's what my dentist suggested! I asked him about "natural" toothpastes and he said that baking soda works well for adults who don't require flouride.

The dental hygienist, though, was concerned that the baking soda might be too abrasive for my teeth (I have major dental enamel defects).

I use "Herbal Toothpaste and Gum Therapy" from The Natural Dentist. It is gluten-free, and corn-free, and there is baking soda in it. They list every ingredient and it's source right on the package. It's a nice toothpaste.

It can be found in some drug stores and health food stores. Their website has a locator feature so you can find the store nearest you.

I realize this post is a few years old but I found it and wanted to update it.

I just called about this toothpaste, the Nature's Gate cherry gel...the company said they manufacture gluten products in their plant and can't tell me there isn't gluten in the toothpaste. I'm not taking a chance on it now.

    • Hi Laurabella, Yes, you could have celiac disease!  It is important to keep eating gluten until all testing is completed, including an endoscopy with biopsy samples if the doctor recommends it.  The doctors usually do want the endoscopy.  The biopsy samples of the small intestine lining (4 to 6 samples) are checked for microscopic damage that indicates celiac disease.  Gall bladder problems can happen with celiac disease.  Your pain could also be from intestinal damage in any part of the small intestine. Some things you could try while you are waiting for your tests to be completed are stopping all dairy, and taking peppermint tea for gas in the stomach.  Celiac disease damage makes it hard to digest dairy sugar (lactose) and that can cause bloating and pain.  Constipation and diahrea are also possible fun symptoms. Welcome to the forum!
    • Hi Beachgrl, We have had members with microscopic colitis before, usually in addition to celiac disease.  Have you been tested for celiac disease?  The reason I ask is, it is much better to be tested for celiac before starting the gluten-free diet.  The primary tests for celiac are to detect antibodies to gliaden in the bloodstream.  Those antibodies start to decline when a person stops eating gluten, so the tests become useless. There is no reason a person can't have more than one digestive system disease.  So it is smart to be tested for celiac disease if you can get the testing arranged.  Any change in symptoms after stopping gluten is an indicator that gluten is causing a reaction of some kind.  It could be celiac, or it could be non-celiac gluten intolerance, (NCGI).  There aren't any reliable tests for NCGI yet. Welcome to the forum!
    • I have microscopic colitis. Having a bad flare of D.  On Budesonide for first time for this. It's helping some- only on it a week. Do you think gluten free would help even if tested negative a few years ago?  Was gluten free yesterday and no BM changes. Even had cramps this AM that wasn't really having before. Thank you!!
    • Do you want to tell us the name of it ans where it is located.  maybe someone else will be looking for a restaurant there. Also, it is very helpful if you go to Find me Gluten Free and review it.
    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.
