Glutens are naturally-occurring proteins found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, and oats, but are not found in corn. The primary source of starch in our formulations is corn. Relatively small amounts of other materials used in our formulations may contain starch from other sources (e.g. potato, rice).

We are not aware of published reports associating the use of our products with a worsening of symptoms in patients with celiac disease.

We hope this information is helpful.

I really appreciate your feedback. I wasn't sure if I was helping anyone.

I've had so many issues with products that I thought should be safe that weren't, hence my research...I'm glad to hear that it's doing someone else some good as well.

    • In many cases no.....I consume heavy magnesium foods like pumpkin seeds, cocoa nibs etc....and still need 2-3x the dose of magnesium recommendations. Going on more of what poster boy said. You dose magnesium to tolerance with citrate like Natural Vitality Calm you start off small partial doses and slow ramp up....it can hit you hard causing gas and D if you go to quick into it. You dose citrate to tolerance meaning you slowly up your dose til you get loose stools...then back down a bit. You should have vivid dreams with a good dosing....also if it becomes to harsh or you can not handle citrate there is Doctors Best Glycinate...it does not have the gut effects at all...but the dreams and how much it makes you relax is more more felt.   ...with this disease you can have a food intolerance or allergy crop up out of the blue....like no where. You have a autoimmune disease....celiac it effects your immune system and can make it really wonky. Like it seems to always be on guard like a sleep deprived sentry on stim packs...jumps at everything and shoots it. If you get sick, eat something odd or harsh you system might red flag it as a issue for awhile and go bonkers....keep a food diary and try a food rotation in the mean time...OH as a example to this, I was fine with chia seeds last week...I got a cold over the weekend....same bag, same brand same way....withing 30mins I now puke if I eat them...new intolerance.....I also am finding jalapenos/paprika making it sleepy tired....so I am removing them both for a few months from my diet and changing to other sources for fats/fiber and vitamin A/C til I get over that issue.....these things just happen. https://www.mindbodygreen.com/articles/are-food-sensitivities-for-life
    • Hi Isabel, Your body needs nutrients to grow.  Nutrients not absorbed well when we have celiac disease damage in our guts.   But, if you do a good job of avoiding gluten, the gut damage should heal and you will be able to absorb nutrients again. The thing to remember is celiac disease is an immune system reaction.  Immune reactions are very sensitive and just a tiny amount of gluten can get them going.   And they can last for months.  So it;s very important to avoid all gluten all the time, to keep the immune reaction down.  Keeping the immune reaction down keeps the damage down, and the healing can keep up. You may start to grow more if you can absorb nutrients better.  Some extra vitamin pills might be a good idea.  Your doctor should know.  
    • Thank you Gail for your response. Of course one should be mindful of the possibility of food allergies but I don't think that's the case with my current situations. Save for gluten containing product, everything I eat now I used to eat before with no reaction whatsoever. I think my issue is more likely to be deficiency in minerals and such.
    • Posterboy, thank you for your response!    Regarding magnesium, do you think relying on food sources like fruits, bananas in particular, is not enough? Just out of curiosity, when you started taking Magnesiums Citrate supplements, did you already consume enough fruits?
    • I fix meal packs in a food prep kit I got online called a jax pack I can fix enough for 1-3 days depending on which pack I fill. I find fixing full on meals in advance...think something that looks great bento style and smells amazing to make others jealous and make it look pretty so you can smile when you pull it out and brag about it.....I had to go the ego route with it sometimes to comfort myself. This allows me to go out and eat sometimes with others. I learned to cook and offer to cook for others...perhaps you can practice and amaze your friends by fixing up some gluten-free dish like crock pot roast, or chicken shred it and have a nacho party? Think of something easy, naturally gluten-free and can bring everyone together and amaze them with your cooking skills. 

      I have comprehensive list of gluten free foods, while we do normally suggest a whole foods only diet, there are options now days for instant meals, and all those standard kids quick foods like hot pockets, cheese sticks, nuggets, tots, corn dogs, etc now from other companies so you can also look the part and not feel that different.

      You are indeed very lucky to have medical services...I have not been able to see a actual doctor since last fall when I lost insurance....I have some friends who are doctors who help out and a chiropractor that will work with me but I can not get blood or labs done.....imagine having to trouble shoot everything and go hit and miss all the time.....
