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?

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.

    • My question is, how long does it take for the anxiety to fade? My anxiety is out of this world. It's horrendous. I have health anxiety and it's real, and it's bad. I thought going gluten-free would help me and I think it's actually gotten worse. But I don't think that's from being gluten-free. I think having an AI disorder panicked me. I've been on the diet 6 months and it's going well for the most part, but like I said, the anxiety is no better. Does that just take a really long time?
    • Thank y'all for the info! His doc said he may not have celiac bc he doesn't look the part whatever that means I guess bc he's a big boy lol but he did the panel anyways And said he'll prob get false neg even if he has gluten issues . He also testing for b12 iron and his vit d, and inflammation. We already know his vit D is low he's been taking high amounts of D3 with magnesium for months now. Doc said could be possible MS but he had spinal tab a while back and physical test also nurve and muscle study and Nero said the results were perfect but he did have some white matter change in MRI but could be from head trauma he's had or high blood pressure or migraines . It's all too much to process sometimes. He's 26  But I would think bc his stomach issues have improved so much in the past weeks bc of going gluten free it makes me lean more towards gluten issues rather than MS wouldn't u think? 
    • Thanks  I didn't pay attention to how long ago this study came out and wasn't sure if anyone had any "recent" data or information. Plus, my retainer is a Hawley retainer and I think it's made of acrylic. I'm not sure that would even have gluten products in it. I'll keep wearing it.
    • My husband bought some McCormick's skillet sauce on Sunday and it says it's certified gluten free. We always use the gluten free seasoning and I've never had an issue. I've just noticed the last couple days that my tummy has been kinda funny and I can't really think of anything that I've eaten that would have caused it, so it may very well not be gluten. But I went to their website and checked out the ingredients and it lists worscestshire sauce as an ingredient. It also lists the ingredients in that and I don't see any malt - just distilled vinegar. But I haven't eaten worscestshire sauce since I was diagnosed because I thought it wasn't safe. But I trust McCormick and know they have a good reputation. Thoughts? Oh, and here's the link to the product.  https://www.mccormick.com/spices-and-flavors/cooking-sauces/skillet-sauces/fajita-skillet-sauce
    • First STAY on gluten til you are done testing, you need 12 weeks for blood test with it in your system and 2 weeks for hte follow up endoscope.  Second yes, if he has celiac then his intestines are damaged and he will not be getting all the nutrients his body needs, so even when off gluten you can have issues show up like this. These can be helped by supplementing I suggest a full B-vitamin regime, and magnesium myself, there are others he might be low in like iron, folate, potassium etc. You should probably see about having his levels checked and talking to a dietician about what me might need. I personally love this blend from liquid health called stress & energy and another one from them called neurological support that I take 1tbsp of each 3 times a day. Best part they are liquid so you just add them to tea, water, or juice. Another I might suggest is Doctors Best Magnesium or Natural Vitality Calm Magnesium Supplements. Doctors best is easier on the stomach while calm can cause gut issues and a laxative effect and it is suggest you start off with 1/4tsp doses and step it up from there to the full dose. I take 2-3 times the dose on this but we are all different in the levels we will need.
