Gluten Free Greens Supplements
0

8 posts in this topic

Are there any gluten free superfood vitamins? Before I went gluten free/knew I had celiac I always did really well on superfood/greens supplements. The vitamins that showed the most improvement were Alive! wholefood energizer, Biochem's greens and whey, The Greatest vitamin in the world vitamin, and Primal Defense probiotics. I realize that all of these vitamins are out of the question now but I would really like to find a vitamin that is similar to these. I hear people say that the brand doesn't make a difference but I beg to differ because I noticed improvement with all of these vitamins that I haven't noticed in others. Please any suggestions!?

Why are they " out of the question now"? Do they contain wheat or barley?

I hate to say this & it's going to throw you for a curve but right now, going low sal, you need not to take the "natural or herbal" vitamins b/c of the sals.

I don't know about "super duper" but it has worked very well for me & that's Solgar brand 'Vitamins Only". Free of sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, soy, gluten & dairy. No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Good. I meant to say also that I called Solgar about those vitamins before I took them just to make sure they had no iodine & they don't.

It may very well be that after a couple months of low sals that you can begin adding back in things one at a time & see how you react. Some people find they can do certain sals but not others. Also, you don't want to stay low iodine for too long at a time. But you'll have to watch it for overdoing iodine --- such as seafood might cause a reaction b/c it's SO high iodine. You see?

How long should I stay low iodine before I add back iodine foods?

How long should I stay low iodine before I add back iodine foods?

People do it for the thyroid cancer treatment for a 2 week period. I wouldn't do it for certainly no more than 3 weeks max. & during the 3rd week I would be adding a little in. 4th week I would certainly make sure I was getting the min. recommended amt. per day which is 150 mcg. You can go above that. Google thyca.org & look at their cookbook --- I think it's pg. 11 that lists the foods high in iodine.

Then just kind of be aware of what you're eating that's high iodine right? If you have a reaction then back off some.

    • egs1707. Are you in Canada?  It's NOT a good idea to go gluten free between now & the GI appt. and here's why.... MOST of us have MUCH stronger reactions to gluten when we go back on it for the endoscopy. A lot of people have had such strong reactions that they have been entirely unable to complete the challenge and have to call it quits. This means they never get an official dx. It's your call, you make the choice. However, I will say that you don't have to eat a lot of gluten, a couple saltines or a slice of bread per day. 
    • You mentioned the tight head. Yes, both my celiac sibling and I had head pressure. Mine was horrible last glutening with eye pain as well. Like someone put a vice around my temples. I swore it felt like a parasite infected my gut, thyroid and brain. It is going away mostly, still have it on and off a bit.  My brother said his naturopath informed him some celiacs get a bit of inflammation in the brain.   
    • Hi All this is my blood test result 1.immunogloblulin serum 203 ( 87-350) 2.Deamidated Gliadin IGA  4 ( 0-19 negative) 3.Deamidated Gliadin IGG 3(0-19 negative) 4.Transglutainase IGA <2 ( 0-3 negative) 5.Transglutainase IGG <2 ( 0-3 negative) does it mean most likely no celiac ? thanks.  
    • At the moment it's microwave rice packets as it needs to be something easy for lunch at work. What do you choose for breakfast? At the moment I have gluten-free porridge oats with fruits but also seeing oats are a bit of a gamble in the early days. Trying to figure out how long a reaction takes to show up i.e. if I feel ropey later in the day is it really lunch as I'm blaming at present or actually is it something from the morning or even night before? The food is the toughest bit for me right now; wasn't that great with it before so will need plenty ideas from you good people... seems I'm in the right place though   
    • I know what you're going through - it's that grieving process and it's tough.  I was diagnosed in 2013, and aside from an occasional pity party, I don't look back. I have my restaurants where I feel safe, I have the food I know I can eat, and I get on with my life.  I'm lucky that I live in a big city with lots of options, but you can make this work, and you will feel better and once you do, you'll stop grieving.  The people on this site helped enormously. It is tough in the beginning to know if you've been 'glutened' vs. just going through withdrawal.  For that reason alone, it's best to avoid restaurants for a little while and be careful at home - just to be sure what's happening.  Eventually you'll be able to get back to your version of 'normal'.  Oh, I also have hypothyroid/hashimoto's.  No big deal, I take synthroid. Quinoa, eggs, nuts and beans for protein.  You don't have to go crazy on the cooking.  Just eat a lot of whole foods.  There are a lot of complicated recipes out there, but now may not be the time.  Rice noodles in veggie bouillon - easy and cheap.  gluten-free pasta with olive oil, parmesan and garlic - easy.  I eat a lot of rice and have never had a problem - you're not getting it out of one of those bulk bins, are you?  That could be contaminated.  Go with packaged.  Do you have access to the Macro Vegetarian brand of prepared rice dishes (in the refrigerated section).  They have several that are gluten free, they're delicious heated and with a little gluten-free soy sauce.  They're my go to on days I don't want to cook. Good luck!
