Does Anyone Know Of A Good Well Rounded Vitamin/mineral Supplement That Is Gluten-Free?

I like Solgar vitamins myself. I mostly get individual vitamins or 1 / 2 combos, like D and calcium. I have some Pioneer brand multi Vits but am not taking those much. Read the thread linked below to see why. They have a lot of Vitamin A in them and that may not be a good thing for celiacs.

Good info... thanks for the post. I'll have to check the Members Mark, but I don't think the Vitamin A was high in those. :)

Kirkland brand by Costco!

Absolutely the cheapest, highest quality you can buy for a "regular" line of vitamins. Unless you want to spend 3-5x more for basically the same ingredients.

They have different varieties and are Gluten free.

I use Garden of Life Vitamin Code liquid.

I'm recently diagnosed and still have absorption issues and a liquid multi is easier for me.

It tastes rather nasty by itself, but I mix it with my other liquid supplements and a bit of juice and that makes it ok.

I also tested positive to casein, eggs, soy, yeast and had to change most of my supplements

From their website:

I get my vitamins from Puritan's Pride. They're very good about labeling when their products are gluten-free whether directly on the bottle or online. And they have a really great deal where you buy 2, get one free.

Actually that's a typical CYA statement and true for many products we use all the time. So I'll continue to take my Centrum Silver. I know we take chances buying a lot of things and this is just one of them...we each have to make that decision every day.

Hey Sylvia, I just had a thought. I read your post about your antibodies being higher than you had hoped. Maybe the Centrum taken daily is your culprit!? :blink::o

I have no clue. I don't know what's normal for antibody levels for someone my age who's been gluten-free for 9 months. Actually one year today!!!

I'm super sensitive to gluten. Tried Centrum Advance New Formula yesterday after pharmacist looked up msds sheet and said they should be fine, had worst case of glutening since going gluten free four months ago. They don't specify where their starches are derived from. This is in Australia.

Have tried the Swisse multi labelled "gluten free" a month ago and had a milder case of glutening, nowhere near as bad as Centrum though. Nevertheless not worth taking them for me.

Just ordered the GNC Women's to give them a go... Spending a lot on multi's so I'm hoping this one is ok :) of course I could be reacting to something else. Definitely need magnesium as I get muscle cramping/spasms fairly frequently now. I just wonder what else I might be low in, so keep searching for a multi rather than individual vitamins at the moment.

Here are some of the vitamins I take. And my nails are looking fabulous! :)

GNC Ultra Women's Active Multi vitamin

Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins - Vitamin C 250 (Target has this brand or you could buy them on-line)

Vitafusion Gummy Vitamins - Calcium 500 with vitamin D 1,000

I just wanted to add that after taking the GNC Womens vitamins for a month I got really sick. So sick that my doctor's thought I had lymphoma and I had to had a lymph node removed for a biopsy. I had to completely stop all of them and start from scratch. The GNC vitamins were the newest vitamins I started to take, but I really suspect it was the Vitafusion vitamins, but I'm not 100% sure. I was taking them for months and then all the sudden they changed the label, but I called and they told me there weren't any changes in the product, so I really trusted this company. As soon as I figured out it was the vitamins, I stopped them and started to get better.

Please be careful with any vitamin even if it says it's gluten free. I had to learn the hard way.

I recently started Kirkman Labs multi vitamin just 8 days ago. Even though I eat healthy I'm still low on some of my vitamins. So far I haven't had any reactions to them and I'm super sensitive. Plus I do keep a food diary.

I, probably like most of you, feel a huge difference when I don't take a daily multivitamin. I feel draggy, run down, no energy, etc. Its REALLY apparent if I forget to take it (which probably is because all my levels are low, but Dr didn't feel the need to run those tests other than Vitamin D)... Anyway, long story short... Centrum is a no go for gluten-free. So, I'm trying to find an equivalent supplement in gluten-free form. Anyone have suggestions for me? THANKS so much in advance!

I've been using Pioneer brand multi vitamins for myself & my son. They are reasonably priced at iHerb online. Pioneer actually has a celiac cleanse formula now too. I bought it, but havent been brave enough to try it yet.

    • Magnesium, B-vitamins, Vitamin D etc. Should probably be supplemented. For the fog, stress, brain issues I swear by my regime of Liquid Health Stress & Energy, and Liquid Health Neurlogical support 1tbsp each 3 times a day in a beverage before a meal. Works wonders, magnesium is also wonderful, you did not mention constipation or D so I do not know which is best for you. There is Doctors best and Natural Vitality, Doctors best works great for relaxing and is easy on the gut but Natural Vitality is easier absorbed but can be harsh on the gut, it also is great for constipation. Doctors you dose as it tells you, Natural Vitality, you start off at 1/4 tsp and up it slowly to full dose over 1-2 weeks.
      Liquid Health also makes Vitamin D3 in a sublingual form. ALL of these can be found on Luckyvitamin.com and on Amazon.
      These will help with you fog, and anxiety.
    • Our 6 year olds Iga test came back over >100 last May. We had him tested because he was thin, had dropped down in his weight charts and was losing his hair! He was also suffering from miscellaneous aches and pains. We immediately eliminated gluten and with only a few screw ups, 6 months later his level was 4! The doctor is astonished at how rapidly it decreased, and is questioning whether he has celiac or not. (has not had a biopsy, as they are so invasive and the testing is so accurate these days.) His hair is thicker and he has gone up in weight 5%, and doesn't complain as much about leg pains or aches.  Has anyone else's child recovered this fast? Could something else be going on? His thyroid tests are normal, so the plan for now is to keep doing what we are doing and re-test both Iga and thyroid in the spring.  thanks for any help!!  
    • I too have a servere but  Of D. Lasting over 2 weeks I will try to find thisproduct. Like you nothing works. I am trying FiberCon says only take for 9 days. Feeling somewhat  better. Thank you for your info.ism welling  to try anything..
    • Soft blended, soups, porridge, Personally I had to avoid the follow for my last gluten attack Spices (made it burn),  any carbs, sugars even in trace amounts caused gas, We normally suggest removing dairy and oats also as they become problematic during healing. Simple soft cooked egg dishes (coconut/almond meal quiche and microwaved omelettes), nut meal porridge sit best for me. Many swear by peppermint and camomilla tea, and peptobismal but neither of those work for me personally, other swear by Imodium for the D.

      There is a product out there that is supposed to lessen the symptoms of a exposure called GlidainX that helps to break down some of the gluten in the intestines so it is not as bad but you have to take it right after realizing the issue. Not tried it personally but after my last exposure and the following 4 weeks of random bouts of D I had I would have tried anything lol. MY D did no stop til my antibodies went back down and my exposure was a low and slow exposure to a CCed food staple....
       
    • Hi lex, I haven't tested anything with NIMA myself, since I don't have one.   I did find some honey sites that claim they have gluten-free honey.  This is just a couple I found in a quick search.  It seems to me honey is made from nectar of flowers.  The nectar is a precursor to the seed.  So the seed isn't formed until the flower is fertilized.  Then gluten is formed as the seed matures.  So normally I think there is little chance of honey having gluten in it because the nectar and gluten are not present at the same time in the plants. I don't think it's impossible for honey to somehow get some gluten in it.  Honey from china has been adulterated with other things already.  Generally high fructose corn syrup.  But who know what else they put in it? I think's its safer to buy local honey where you know the farmer than imported brands IMHO. If there were a large flour mill in the area where the honey was being harvested I'd be a little wary of it myself.  At least for honey produced during the harvest season. http://www.barkmanhoney.com/faqs/does-honey-contain-gluten/ http://www.capilanohoney.com/au-en/faq/is-your-honey-gluten-free Is your honey gluten free?       Honey is naturally free of gluten. It does not contain wheat or its by-products. Our honey is 100% pure and natural, nothing has been added to it, therefore it is 100% gluten free. In addition to this, no gluten containing products are handled or stored in our packing facilities.
