Good Gluten Free Vitamin?

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good gluten free vitamin? I just started taking "Megafood Vitamins" & they told me they do test for gluten & they are gluten free. But I'm learning just because it's says gluten free doesn't always mean it's gluten free...

Has anyone tried them or had any reactions to them?

Thanks!

I just took a quick look at the ingredients. With Barley grass in there I wouldn't touch them. Unfortunately they can call them gluten free even if they contain barley or wheat grass. Also unfortunately most of us will react.

Hi Ravenwoodglass,

Thanks for looking. I did look on the bottles of everything I'm taking & I don't see the barley grass in there. I'm taking the Blood Builder, vitamin D-3 2,000 & the Women's One Daily vitamins from Megafood. Could you tell me where you seen the barley grass?

I'm kind of freaking out. I've been taking these for the last three days. I'm not really noticing any reactions, but I want to make sure they're safe.

Thanks!

I use Natures Bounty. We are limited on choices up here in the frozen north so... these one's have a long list of free's on the back and I've never reacted badly to them.

I saw it in the general list of the ingredients they use in their vitamins. I didn't know which one you are taking so I looked at the general ingredients and what they are sourced from. Looking at the Women's One Daily they don't list the barley grass so it may not be included in that particular supplement.

Okay, thanks Ravenwoodglass. I did call the company again today to make sure there is no barley grass in the ones I'm taking. I'm just waiting for them to call me back. Thanks for checking them out.

I Googled Megafoods Vitamins, gluten and came to this page. I recently began taking Megafoods' Women's Once Daily, which can be taken twice per day. That's what I did. I had not been taking any vitamins for a while, but now needed to be full of pep. Unfortunately, I did not realize I was having a reaction to this vitamin. But today was so bad, I was forced to very carefully review everything I have eaten, or taken in, over the last two weeks. The only change is this vitamin. I am oh-so-sorry that now I will have an even worse reaction tomorrow (I took two, spaced out earlier today), and can only hope the worst will be over then. Unfortunately, this is a working day at a new job, so this is beyond embarrassing. As the reaction took some days to set in severely, I assume there is just a trace of gluten. But it is enough. Hope you can avoid a similar reaction by reading this!

I am a longtime fan of Kirkman Labs - all of their stuff is high quality and reasonably inexpensive. They take allergens very seriously and it's the only vitamin brand I've never had a problem with (I'm pretty sensitive).

Thanks, Janet. I'll look for that brand.

I just wanted to add that I was getting gluten from these vitamins, too. I took me a while to figure it out. I called this company three times... :blink: I was taking the same vitamins for months and I had so much energy, but I was still having my same old gluten reaction, so I stopped taking them to see if I felt better. All my reactions went away. It's crazy how these companies can state they are gluten free! I hope no one else is taking them. It took me months to figure it out. :(

I now take GNC Women's Ultra Mega Active. I feel so much better!
