Does Anyone Know Of A Good Well Rounded Vitamin/mineral Supplement That Is Gluten-Free?

I like Solgar vitamins myself. I mostly get individual vitamins or 1 / 2 combos, like D and calcium. I have some Pioneer brand multi Vits but am not taking those much. Read the thread linked below to see why. They have a lot of Vitamin A in them and that may not be a good thing for celiacs.

Good info... thanks for the post. I'll have to check the Members Mark, but I don't think the Vitamin A was high in those. :)

Kirkland brand by Costco!

Absolutely the cheapest, highest quality you can buy for a "regular" line of vitamins. Unless you want to spend 3-5x more for basically the same ingredients.

They have different varieties and are Gluten free.

I use Garden of Life Vitamin Code liquid.

I'm recently diagnosed and still have absorption issues and a liquid multi is easier for me.

It tastes rather nasty by itself, but I mix it with my other liquid supplements and a bit of juice and that makes it ok.

I also tested positive to casein, eggs, soy, yeast and had to change most of my supplements

From their website:

I get my vitamins from Puritan's Pride. They're very good about labeling when their products are gluten-free whether directly on the bottle or online. And they have a really great deal where you buy 2, get one free.

Actually that's a typical CYA statement and true for many products we use all the time. So I'll continue to take my Centrum Silver. I know we take chances buying a lot of things and this is just one of them...we each have to make that decision every day.

Hey Sylvia, I just had a thought. I read your post about your antibodies being higher than you had hoped. Maybe the Centrum taken daily is your culprit!? :blink::o

I have no clue. I don't know what's normal for antibody levels for someone my age who's been gluten-free for 9 months. Actually one year today!!!

I'm super sensitive to gluten. Tried Centrum Advance New Formula yesterday after pharmacist looked up msds sheet and said they should be fine, had worst case of glutening since going gluten free four months ago. They don't specify where their starches are derived from. This is in Australia.

Have tried the Swisse multi labelled "gluten free" a month ago and had a milder case of glutening, nowhere near as bad as Centrum though. Nevertheless not worth taking them for me.

Just ordered the GNC Women's to give them a go... Spending a lot on multi's so I'm hoping this one is ok :) of course I could be reacting to something else. Definitely need magnesium as I get muscle cramping/spasms fairly frequently now. I just wonder what else I might be low in, so keep searching for a multi rather than individual vitamins at the moment.

Here are some of the vitamins I take. And my nails are looking fabulous! :)

GNC Ultra Women's Active Multi vitamin

Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins - Vitamin C 250 (Target has this brand or you could buy them on-line)

Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins - Calcium 500 with vitamin D 1,000

I just wanted to add that after taking the GNC Womens vitamins for a month I got really sick. So sick that my doctor's thought I had lymphoma and I had to had a lymph node removed for a biopsy. I had to completely stop all of them and start from scratch. The GNC vitamins were the newest vitamins I started to take, but I really suspect it was the Vitafusion vitamins, but I'm not 100% sure. I was taking them for months and then all the sudden they changed the label, but I called and they told me there weren't any changes in the product, so I really trusted this company. As soon as I figured out it was the vitamins, I stopped them and started to get better.

Please be careful with any vitamin even if it says it's gluten free. I had to learn the hard way.

I recently started Kirkman Labs multi vitamin just 8 days ago. Even though I eat healthy I'm still low on some of my vitamins. So far I haven't had any reactions to them and I'm super sensitive. Plus I do keep a food diary.

I, probably like most of you, feel a huge difference when I don't take a daily multivitamin. I feel draggy, run down, no energy, etc. Its REALLY apparent if I forget to take it (which probably is because all my levels are low, but Dr didn't feel the need to run those tests other than Vitamin D)... Anyway, long story short... Centrum is a no go for gluten-free. So, I'm trying to find an equivalent supplement in gluten-free form. Anyone have suggestions for me? THANKS so much in advance!

I've been using Pioneer brand multi vitamins for myself & my son. They are reasonably priced at iHerb online. Pioneer actually has a celiac cleanse formula now too. I bought it, but havent been brave enough to try it yet.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
