Gluten Free Greens Supplements

Are there any gluten free superfood vitamins? Before I went gluten free/knew I had celiac I always did really well on superfood/greens supplements. The vitamins that showed the most improvement were Alive! wholefood energizer, Biochem's greens and whey, The Greatest vitamin in the world vitamin, and Primal Defense probiotics. I realize that all of these vitamins are out of the question now but I would really like to find a vitamin that is similar to these. I hear people say that the brand doesn't make a difference but I beg to differ because I noticed improvement with all of these vitamins that I haven't noticed in others. Please any suggestions!?

Why are they " out of the question now"? Do they contain wheat or barley?

I hate to say this & it's going to throw you for a curve but right now, going low sal, you need not to take the "natural or herbal" vitamins b/c of the sals.

I don't know about "super duper" but it has worked very well for me & that's Solgar brand 'Vitamins Only". Free of sugar, salt, starch, yeast, wheat, soy, gluten & dairy. No artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Good. I meant to say also that I called Solgar about those vitamins before I took them just to make sure they had no iodine & they don't.

It may very well be that after a couple months of low sals that you can begin adding back in things one at a time & see how you react. Some people find they can do certain sals but not others. Also, you don't want to stay low iodine for too long at a time. But you'll have to watch it for overdoing iodine --- such as seafood might cause a reaction b/c it's SO high iodine. You see?

How long should I stay low iodine before I add back iodine foods?

How long should I stay low iodine before I add back iodine foods?

People do it for the thyroid cancer treatment for a 2 week period. I wouldn't do it for certainly no more than 3 weeks max. & during the 3rd week I would be adding a little in. 4th week I would certainly make sure I was getting the min. recommended amt. per day which is 150 mcg. You can go above that. Google thyca.org & look at their cookbook --- I think it's pg. 11 that lists the foods high in iodine.

Then just kind of be aware of what you're eating that's high iodine right? If you have a reaction then back off some.

    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
    • I am sorry that you are sick!  Ennis has offered some great advice.  With small children, they can be glutening you.  I recall member Jebby getting glutened by her kids.  She worked full time as a neonatologist (premie doctor) and her kids would give her slobbery, adorable kisses, etc.  Jebby had the household go gluten free.  That might be something to consider.  
    • Hmm... my massage therapists use aromatherapy and specifically ask you to inhale several times while they hold it very close to your face and I do have them rub my face (although some people don't like that and don't have it done.) Lotion also ends up on your hands which you could transfer to food you eat afterwards if you haven't washed your hands well (obviously hand washing is key!) But I don't think that is too far of a stretch to think it *could* be injested and to double check to be sure the products used are gluten-free.  And at a salon I realize that they'd wash my hair tilted back but what about product(s) being spritzed on your hair when styled? Rare yes, but I do know I've "tasted" those products before! Ick.
