I wouldn't worry about the levels of vitamins in this product but I would worry a great deal about the fact that it has both barley and wheat in it. You were wise to stop taking it if you are gluten intolerant or celiac.

I stopped because I didn't know I was doing too much over the daily dose for these vitamins and minerals that are not water soluble. At the time, I didn't know I had any type of intolerance. I just knew I craved certain food and could eat it at any time of the day. I am not diagnosed but I know there is something going on. I just wonder how much my supplements could have hidden if I had malabsorption since I don't have many deficiencies. I have been taking vit D 1000 iu, vit B complex 50, vit C 1000mg, Calcium 1100mg and Magnesium 450mg for years (except for the vit D for only 1.5 year). And on the top of that, I started doing my weird cleanse with my heavy supplements and did for about a month. I never go without calcium/mag and vit B since I know their value and function on sleep, stress and muscles.

Go get yourself a book regarding what amounts of supplements/vitamins, etc you should be taking and for what. I suggest "Prescription for Nutritional Healing" by Phyllis A. Balch, CNC. I refer to it all the time.

Regarding the wheat grass, etc. I was shocked to see a powder mix (can't recall what brand) that stated "gluten free" on the front then listed wheat grass and barley grass as ingredients. I need to look further into whether those in "grass" form are free from the gluten.

....Actually I may sit here with my book and look over your list item by item and tell you what my book says.

Sorry for the late reply but until today I didn't know how to find my topics. I just realized how. Thanks for your reply. Wheat and barley grass can be gluten free because the grass doesn't contain the protein gluten. I am taking wheat grass this week to help me with candida alkalize and get some good enzymes. If they don't say gluten free it would be from contamination.

They may not contain the protein but many of us react to them. If you are diagnosed or gluten free you may find the wheat grass makes you ill. That should be the first thing you drop if you notice an increase in symptoms.

If you do a board seach using wheat grass as the term there are many posts and some may have links to info on it. It is not something advised despite it's supposed gluten free statis.
