Nature's Plus Source Of Life Liquid- Is It Really gluten-free?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was looking for a gluten-free/CF liquid vitamin supplement and asked the owner at a local health food store. She did some quick Internet research, and showed me the Nature's Path Source of Life Liquid. After she left, I looked over the ingredients, and was immediately suspicious. Young Barley Leaf, Barley Grass Juice, and rice bran, along with spirulina, which I've heard bad things about. The bottle says its free of wheat, soy, etc. but does not say free of gluten.

Has anyone else had experience with this brand? I've emailed them but I would like to hear some feedback from this board if anyone else has tried it.

I'm guessing its not. Its wheat free I suppse, but I'd stay away because of the barley sounding things.

For any vitamans and the like. I've just decided to stick with Nature's Made stuff.

www.naturemade.com

They clearly say gluten free on everything they have that is gluten free.

I would steer clear of it..sounds like it is wheat free but not gluten free. It even sayd barley grass in it. I was told at a health food store one time that Spelt was gluten free which is totally wrong. I don't think that they have the proper knowledge and need to watch what they say.

Thanks for the feedback. I decided the liquid stuff was too risky, but I found a good powdered vitamin in a rice base that is gluten/casein free at Whole Foods. It's called All One Powder and I've been taking it for the past week or so. It seems to really agree with me. The biggest change is that my stool has bulked up nicely, perhaps I'm absorbing nutrients in my food better, since fat malabsorption is one of my major issues. I went online and bought a big container of the powder from the company's website, got a 30% discount before the end of the year, and they throw in a shaker and scoop for free.

I purchased this same product for my husband and I noticed that it said wheat free not gluten free also. I called the company and asked them before he took it and they said it was definately gluten free but they had the typical disclaimer to read to me. I questioned her about the young barley leaf and she said she asked the consumer department and they assured her it was gluten free. I went back into the health food store and asked the owner if she knew if "young barley leaf" was different from "barley" and she said she felt it was still barley and would be considered gluten and thought I should return it to be safe, which I did.

Better safe than sorry.
