Vitamin Deficiencies

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Looking for some recommendations for my Celiac daughter, age 12 who now is deficient in Vitamin D (not a surprise in MN) as well as low in folate. What is a good supplemental source of folate and how much per day, in addition to folate rich foods?

As far as supplements go, do you have a Costco store near you? They carry a D3 supplement (D3 is the most easily assimilated form) and a Super B-Complex by "Nature Made" and a sub-lingual B12 by "Nature's Bounty" that are all gluten free and reasonabley priced. It clearly states on the bottles that they are gluten free. Most if not all of Costco's Signature line and Nature Made vitamins and suplements are gluten free and state so on the bottle.

Oranges are the best natural source of folate, I believe.

Leafy greens are the best source of folic acid - can you get her to eat salads, spinach, and so on?
