is it ok to take vit. e vitamins? and how aout wheat protien in shampoo's? wasn't sure about this..

I have been researching this and it seems that if the label reads 'd-alpha-tocopherol' it is not made from wheat. I think if it just says Vitamin E I would be wary. Also, any other tocopherols may contain wheat. Unfortunately the wheat derived Vitamin E is in a lot of Shampoo's, Conditioners, Makeup, Lotions, etc. I recently purchased Vitamin E Oil by NOW (www.nowfoods.com) and it's nice and thick. I just make it a point to read labels because a lot of shampoos and conditioners have wheat germ oil in them now.

Also, as far as vitamins, the same applies. Nature Made vitamins does label whether or not their vitamins contain gluten. I like their brand the best because they are allergy-concious and label their products if they have any other allergens such as soy or dairy.
