Hi Everyone

I need to take a Multi, Vit D and Iron?

I am looking for gluten-free vitamins online and found some but they dont all carry everything. I wanted to try to order online or go to a store and get all 3 at one time (to make it easy each time I need to refill, you know)?

Any suggestions on a brand?

Exciting Note: Been gluten-free for a year but with some problems so I went to a Celiac Research Center in NYC. I had bloodwork drawn, a bone scan and have an endo scheduled for the end of the month (and meeting with the nutritionist at same time)SO I may have more information as to what to take then (digestive enzymes I wonder about as well as probiotics.....), but figured I would get vitamin brand recomendations from you guys all since you guys are the true experts.

Thanks again!

Hi :)

I buy Sundown at my market. They state gluten free on the label and have taken them for nearly a month now with no reactions. And they're not expensive.

I spent thousands of dollars on vitamins (whole food supplement, "pharaceutical-grade supplements, etc). The only vitamin I've literally seen a change in my bloodwork from is Isotonix. It was recommeded by my homeopathic doctor due to my absorption issues. It comes in a powder form and you mix it with water and take it on an empty stomach. If you take it as they instruct, it's has the same makeup as blood plasma and is absorbed within 10 minutes. Of course, the whole product line is gluten free. I take the multi twice a day and the OPC-3 (i think it's called) twice per day. And the calcium every few days. You can get the multi with or without iron.

I take a liquid form of Vitamin D @ 4,000 IU per serving. I can't recall the name brand.

FYI, All the vitamins I take are a bit pricey, but seem worth every penny.

I check out all my vitamins (except for Isotonix) on consumerlab.com to ensure their purity and potency.

I use the Vitasorb range from Biocare https://www.biocare.co.uk They are drops which you put under your tongue to ensure you absorb the vitamins, if your stomach and intestines are damaged from Gluten it sometimes can not absorb the vitamins from pills or even liquid. Using Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid made a big difference for me.

This is all great feedback, thank you all.

I was concerned with taking a big old hard vitamin and if we celiacs actually "absorb" it.
