I was wondering if anyone has tried this 2 oz. vitamin drink and if so has it helped at all with feeling better or having more energy.

I am asking because there is this lady who said she was a celiac and she swears by this stuff, she said she never bloats anymore is not tired and has loads of energy. She is claiming it helps heal our weak immune system.

I want to try it and want anyones input on this.

There is a web site for it too, vemma.com

Thanks everyone for your help :)

Went on the website and noticed the kid's version called NEXT states it is gluten free, but the adult version, VEMMA, does not. Would need to check on that. I'm always worried when they say natural flavors in ingredients.

What are the dangers about natural flavors, isn't that a good thing? Thanks for replying I really appreciate it.

First, on the natural flavoring: I am always suspect of natural flavoring listed in any food that does not specifically state "gluten free". I would guess that many things listed as natural flavor could certainly be free of gluten, but it sounds too much like a catch-all to me, so I don't take the chance. Cocaine is all natural too, and so is wheat, but I'm not doing that either. You may want to hear from others more experienced than me, I've been doing this less than 3 months. But I feel so good that I'm not willing to spoil it.

Secondly, on the VEMMA vitamin fact sheet found on their website. The kid's version specifically states GLUTEN-FREE. The adult version does not. I'd definitely contact the company before giving it a try. Almost every company I have contacted has responded quickly and (so far) honestly. I really would LOVE to find a liquid multi - I'll be contacting them when I have a a few free seconds.

You did better than me on that website. I couldn't find an ingredient list. But I'm assuming it's got citrus in it? That would make it impossible to drink for me.

Yeah, I had to search a bit to find it too. On the Vemma.com website, click on the individual product tab (i.e., Vemma, Next, etc.). Look just a bit directly below the Account Login link. There's a Product Fact Sheet on each tab.

Wheat has to be declared in the ingredient list but barly and rye don't and could be "hidden" under the term natural flavors. Alot of natural flavors are gluten free, you just need to contact the company to find out.

Wow still alot for me to learn here. Thanks for all the info. I did find the number and call them. The kids Next is gluten free but the vemma has not been offically labeled gluten free as of yet so they can not say it is until it has been certified.

I did get to speak to the gal that has celiac and is taking this product and she said it is working for her and when her other celiac friend called they did tell her it was gluten free....wow how this can get confusing!

Would be really nice if all places would label either gluten free or contains gluten.

Thanks again everyone.

    • Thanks for the response, all helpful. Here is the ingredients for the Claritin reditabs:  anhydrous citric acid, gelatin, mannitol, and mint flavor. And here is the ingredients for the nasal spray: An aqueous suspension containing the active ingredient fluticasone propionate USP, and the inactive ingredients 0.02% w/w microcrystalline cellulose and carboxymethylcellulose sodium, dextros, 0.02% w/w benzalkonium chloride, polysorbate 80, and 0.25% w/w phenylethyl alcohol, and has a pH between 5 and 7. Does anyone see anything suspicious I am still new at looking up unusual hidden gluten sources.
    • Hi Spencer88- just wanted to update you on the splinter hemorrhages. I went to my GI doctor and he ran a bunch of bloodwork. I didn't actually get the bloodwork done for a few weeks as I wanted to go back to consistently taking my B-12, D3, K, and multi.(Solgar VM-75)  When I did get the bloodwork done, all the numbers came back fine. Vitamin C is water soluble so harder to test for than A,D,E, and K but I thought A,D,E, & K would serve as an indication of how my body was absorbing. Splinter hemorrhages have grown out on my one toe and seem to be growing out on my other foot as well. Today, I think one may be starting on another toe, so am increasing my clementines to 3 a day again and seeing what happens. (I had gone down to one a day). This seems so non- scientific, but I am giving it a shot. My GI also wanted me to check with a rheumatologist, but my tests for RA and Lupus all came back fine, so not sure I will be making an appointment. Getting tired of jumping from doctor to doctor. So far have seen General practitioner, GI, Cardiologist, & Dermatologist. We have ruled out a lot, but no answers as to why. Getting tired of hearing the word "idiopathic". How are you doing?
    • :-D I'm hoping the labs will show something, but I'm thinking you're right and I'll just have to go gluten-free if there're no "evidence". My doc seemed willing to ask for a skin biopsy if it flares again, so that may do it if the labs don't. The tricky thing is most of my symptoms are gone since I cut out milk, except the rash crops up every now and then, my scalp never calms down completely, and my hair falls out. Huh, I guess that's still pretty unsatisfactory, lol.  I may just need to cut out the gluten after we get through the testing.
    • Are you now gluten free? Urinary issues are definitely a celiac / NCGS symptom. I used to drink tons of water / other drinks and had to urinate quite frequently when I was eating gluten. Once I stopped this was no longer the case. I still have the urge to urinate though, but far less frequently!
