Centrum Vitamins

Hey! I have been taking centrum vitamins for about a year now, and thought I had read that they were gluten free. I just called them, and none of their vitamins are presently gluten free. Just thought I would share. Now I have to find some that are. Thanks!

When I called them 6 months ago they told me I had to call in with the product number on the bottle each time I bought them.

They said the formula changes with each batch they produce. I had 2 bottles here, regular and silver when I called. The silver was gluten-free and the regular was not.

yup, i had commented on this a few months back when i called Wyeth to inquire first about Advil, but then about all of their products that i might use... i had just been diagnosed and was using Centrum at the time. I switched over to Nature Made shortly thereafter, who clearly labels their vitamins as free of gluten.

Nature Made marks there bottles gluten free. They are available at Costco in large bottles which makes it a lot less expensive than buying them at a health food store. Also, the Kirkland (Costco brand) mutli-vitamins are marked gluten free on the bottle.

I called Wyeth today to see what they'd tell me, (because sometimes the info can change depending on which rep you speak to <_< ) and the person there told me that "none of the Centrum vitamins are considered gluten-free."

Maybe I should call them again with the same batch number that they told me was safe. COuld be we get to a different call center from Hawaii.

I did switch to Nature Made and Costco for all the other vitamins.

My daughter has been taking Centrum everyday for months now because I thought I had read that they were safe. I was surprised when I read this thread so I went to their website and this is what they say on there:

"2. Is Centrum gluten-free and is it safe for people with celiac disease to take?

Yes, Centrum is gluten-free and suitable for individuals with celiac disease. "

If what you were told on the phone is correct that would explain why she has been feeling so bad! I am very upset!

I'm thinking that this was old information on the website. I used to take Centrum, and called them about 2 years ago. At that time I was told that Centrum was certified gluten-free. I stopped taking it soon afterward, though since something in it was making me sick--probably the soy.

They must have changed their formula or possibly the vitamin E or another inactive ingredient is now derived from wheat.

Hope your daughter feels better soon! :)

I stopped taking ALL vitamins about a month ago, and don't plan to take any again. I figure I can get enough vitamins and minerals from my diet to sustain life. :)

I stopped all of them for a year after I was diagnosed but found my energy level really low and things not right.

Thanks to Yolo and other members putting me onto some other gluten-free vitamins, I'm feeling much better with energy back to normal levels.

I read on a list somewhere that they were gluten free, all except the silver ones. So I bought some. They made me very sick. I gave them away and will not try them again. I stick to my Nature Made vitamins. Country Life Vitamins (which can be ordered from Lame Advertisement.com very easily and quickly online) have now been certified gluten free. I buy my B12 from them and my Ester C. I think it's wonderful when a company does this for us.

They really need to get their act together.

They told me silver was ok (the batch number I have) and the regular ones my wife takes were not gluten-free.

I've not had any problems from taking them but will not buy them again as they said I did have to call, and wait and wait and wait

for them to answer with each batch number.

I agree, they need to get their act together. And, I think we should all avoid centrum vitamins right now.

    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
