Optimum Nutrition Weight Gainer Glutten Free? Gold Standard Gainer

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Tried looking around for the product stated in the title, if it's glutten free. I tried reaching out to the company but no responses. I'm used to drinking serious mass as a weight gainer, but now that I maybe diagnosed with celiac, I'm trying to find the best alternative to a weight gainer.. I attached a picture of the label. It seems to be glutten free, but it says may contain wheat, which I believe is probably because they use the same machines to make products that do contain glutten.

Thanks.

I see 2 issues. One, oat flour, and the second being milk. Many of us cannot have non certified gluten-free oats (and some can't even have that.) and oftentimes, people newly diagnosed can't have milk protein. Not all but many for the first 6 months or so.

so you might be diagnosed or are diagnosed? Lol. If you have any tests to decipher let us know.

Welcome. The oat flour is a no go since it doesn't specify that it is certified gluten free. Newly diagnosed celiacs should avoid even certified oats until well healed as some of us will react to them. You may also want to avoid dairy for a bit if your GI distress is agravated by it. You may well be able to add it back in after you have healed. If you are not done with testing do be sure to keep eating gluten until finished.

Have to ask if you have a Supra.  Out of all my cars my '82 will always be my favorite. Boy could that thing move.

I body build myself, look into Nutra Key the V-pro vegan one is a good blend, MRM has various ones I use the Veggie elite from that. I also use various other proteins and bars from Julian Bakery (love julian keto options for gluten-free breads) and Jarrow. I use the ketogenic diet approach and eat a ton of fats, very low to no carbs, and over 250g of protein a day. I also avoid dairy, soy, and several other things I have intolerance to. I focus on proteins high in zinc for recovery like Oregon Seed Company Pumpkin Protein, and MRM or Julian Sacha Inchi Proteins.   Jarrow Hemp and plant formulas are also nice on rotation to mix it up.

    Okay, thanks. Re: MTHFR - I don't really know yet... I only started reading about it yesterday and it is pretty overwhelming. But it does seem to be common advice that if you have a close relative with it you should be tested, and I guess having 2 copies of the "C" variant, as my sister has, is the "worst" variety of it.  It came to light for her when she was going through infertility and miscarriages.  They discovered that her homocysteine was high, which led to the MTHFR testing. So that is one thing I know I would then want to proceed to do, if I do have it - get my homocysteine tested. My dad died of early-onset Alzheimer's, and apparently there is a link between high homocysteine as well as the MTHFR mutation and Alzheimer's. It also seems like it would be worth knowing if I have it since it could be the cause of my lower levels of B12. And I guess maybe I would need to start taking methyl-folate? I mean, to answer your question, I am not entirely sure what I will do if I do have it.   Probably read a lot more about it... and take supplements like methyl-folate if I really think I need to.  Check my homocysteine & control that if I need to, hopefully to lower my risk of Alzeheimer's.  It seems like a frustrating area because there appear to be limited official medical websites that really even talk much about it (so far).  I have found one article on the NIH that focuses on the link with high homocysteine. I already eat a very healthy diet.  Whole grains, lots of fruit & veg, mostly organic.  I am a vegetarian except for very rare seafood. I avoid processed food and, above all, foods with added sugar...  To me, sugar is by far the worst culprit in the SAD.  I think RA has been ruled out by my 2 negative Rheumatoid Factor tests (one done several years ago, one just this year at my physical).  Also, the way this started in my elbows, and was really only there for years, is just... weird... and definitely doesn't really fit with arthritis.  And there is no swelling to speak of, just mild pain - sometimes aching, sometimes burning, sometimes sharp...  It may or may not fit with any systemic diagnosis versus a mechanical one, but nowadays I do also have pain in my hands, feet, and knees.  So then I think, well maybe it is/was something systemic, but it was worse in my elbows for some mechanical reason but now has progressed elsewhere.  I thought Crohn's was just digestive?  (Of course, many people think that of celiac.)  So I haven't really investigated that one much. My ANA was retested and is back down to "negative," so I think that pretty much rules out lupus.  I believe fibromyalgia is still on the table. Anyhow....  Your point is nonetheless taken.  I do want to rule out celiac and go from there.  At this point I'd sure love to find out it is something I could control through my diet!
