Calcium And Iron

Is there anything with calcium and iron in it, that someone with Celiac can actually absorb? I don't need more bone problems (have a messed up spine now), and to be anemic.

I would check out New Chapter's line of vitamins. They're food based and cultured, so they're more easily absorbed.

Also, you really only need about one-third of the recommended daily intake of calcium. The reason that it's so high is because you don't absorb the majority of it. But since these are cultured, and not rock based, you absorb more of it.

Great! I will look and see if I can find them.

I am currently just taking Every Man's One Daily just because I feel it is a good all around vitamin with not too much of anything.

I would recommend Every Woman's Iron Support and maybe Cal Mag Bone Health. I do have to warn you, they are quite expensive so I'd recommend shopping around to look for the best price. www.Lame Advertisement.com usually has good prices.

Also, calcium is best absorbed from foods. Supplements will only take you so far. Here are some healthy foods high in calcium --> http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=n...tarysupplements

* Notice spinach

Also here is an interesting article about synthetic vitamins and calcium that might of interest to you: http://www.virginiahopkinstestkits.com/vitaminsbad.html

Also www.kirkmanlabs.com has allergy-free and gluten-free vitamins, minerals and supplements. They are wonderful to work with.

and make sure not to take calcium supplements and iron supplements at the same time. they interfere with each others absorption.

Okay, good idea. :) And as for finding vitamins... I forgot all about needing gluten-free vitamins! I cannot believe it is in that stuff too :P

These look like a good vitamin but one word of caution, they do contain soy and some of us cannot tolerate soy. If it seems like you are not tolerating them that might be the reason.

Another good brand of vitamins that is fairly reasonable in cost is Country Life. Also if you have a Wegmans close by they carry allergen free vitamins that are fairly reasonable.

Well, so far, no problem with soy. Thinking I may be anemic, going to get tested on Monday.

I will see if I can find any of those brands anywhere.

I have never heard of Wegmans, so I don't think we have one around.

Thanks!
