Anyone Try Celiact Multivitamin?

Recommended Posts

Just last month a company started selling a multivitamin that is specific to people with Celiac Disease called CeliAct. Has anyone tried this yet? Is it worth the $50 a month for it? I've been taking an off the shelf multivitamin that only costs me $15 for like a 4 month supply, so for me $50 a month is outrageous, but if it REALLY works and makes me feel better, I'll switch. Any info is appreciated, thanks!

After looking at the levels of the vitamins and comparing them to what I already take I realized I need more of some individual vitamins than they provide. So I would still need additional vitamins and for me just sticking with the ones I take was the more cost freindly option.

Yeah that's the thing I can't justify is the price, and it almost comes off like gouging to me because, yes, this is a unique blend for Celiacs, but they want $50 for one month's worth of pills, and even then you have to take 3 pills two times a day.

I would love to hear from a dietitian on this and see if this multivitamin is a load of garbage or not.

Sorry to bump an old thread. I too was interested in this vitamin when I saw the article written here on Celiac.com, but after speaking with them it seems there are allergens within that haven't been disclosed, such as eggs. Not sure why eggs were even used in the process (something I haven't seen), but the fact that they don't label any of the allergens outside of gluten makes it unappealing in itself to those of us who have other sensitivies/allergies.

Another problem with it is the fact that they put digestive enzymes in it as well, which need to be taken with every meal as far as I know, and that would lead you to splitting it into 2 times a day for three days. I thought the price was pretty fair for something with Probiotics and Enzymes in it as well as a multi tho. It really gets expensive, especially for a college student, to purchase all of them :(
