Vitamins For Celiacs

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been taking a vitamin by Real food organics, Country Life, called Women's daily Nutrition because I know it is safe. But I have to say after 6 months of being on it that I feel no change. I am wanting a vitamin to give me more energy, immune support, ect, and one that I am not paying $43 a month for. My body does not handle Centrum very well, so besides these two vitamins does anyone have any suggestions that worked for them and that has not worked for them? Thank you

I have had good results with a B-complex and fish oil in addition to the multi.

Before I go and give you specific brands to look for, I'm going to have you take a different angle.

Go to an independent store in your town that has a very large vitamin selection. In most cases, stores like this have VERY knowledgeable staff members who work the floor.

Let them know what your concerns (and budget) and they will point you in the right direction.

Remember, everyone is different as are their needs and requirements. Let the salesperson know. And remember, you don't have to buy the first time at all. You can simply go on a fact finding mission.

With that said, why don't you tell us what they said and I'll give you some more insight.

Well, what you take really depends on your nutrient levels of the various vitamins and minerals. Has your doctor tested you for things like Vit. D, B12, iron/ferritin (just a small sampling of things you could be deficient in). If you are grossly deficient in any of these things then taking a One-A-Day made by anyone is not going to help you very much.

Seriously, go into a store that has a vast selection of vitamins (branded and private label). Enter the store with no intention of even making a purchase, just go on a fact finding mission. I'd even suggest that you take in some paper and pen to document the insights.

Ask for someone who is knowledgeable on all supplements. They will even help you with your budget. Tell them why you are looking for a supplement and most importantly what your GOALS are. That will help them make an educated assumption about your needs.

Compare your findings to what is on the internet and then go back and make a purchase.

I LOVE MagaFood Vitamins. You can find them online but they are whole food based and are Gluten, Soy, Corn, Dairy ,Wheat free!, pesticide and herbicide free, dye free too! They are a bit pricey but they have made me feel AWESOME!! They are the best ones I have EVER tried and believe me I have tried lots of them. They are a lot less expensive online. I use the Optimum Foods one. They also have one for Pregnancy/Nursing, Women over 40, Mens and a Mens over 40 and many, MANY more for specific nutrients and problems. MegaFoods.com

Good luck!!

thanks for the help, but i ended up getting different types of pills that my doctor recommended. i have to take 5,000 iu! isn't that crazy? and do you know if that means that my Vitamin D is really low/bad?

Susie, I'd say your Vitamin D is low, which is not at all uncommon. Even people without celiac can have low Vitamin D levels...and if it doesn't quit raining around here, it's not surprising for me (I should have mine retested). I think there is more awareness of Vitamin D now than in the past.

Did your Dr. test it and other vitamins? If so, you should always pick up a copy of your lab reports.
