Anyone with celiac disease knows how important it is to read the labels on food and beverage products. This is also very important when it comes to supplements. Celiac disease affects how the body absorbs vitamins and minerals, so choosing a supplement to replace those lost is essential. It is also wise to consider a supplement that provides other benefits such as digestive enzymes, antioxidants, and probiotics.
If you can get one gluten-free supplement that does all this – you've hit the jackpot and I think this is the case with Gluten Free Therapeutics' new Celi-Vites Body Health capsules. In addition to being a great multivitamin, this supplement contains zinc, selenium, copper, manganese, chromium, and molybdenum in a chelated form. Mineral supplements provided as chelated are said to have dramatically improved absorption rates over mineral supplements provided as simple "mineral salts" like zinc chloride.
I tried them and really liked them. If you want just one supplement because you don't like taking dozens of different pills a day, check out Celi-Vites: www.glutenfreetherapeutics.com.
