Supplement With Gluten Free Vitamins

Over the past eighteen months so many things have changed in my life.  Removing the wheat, grains and gluten has been fairly easy for me when it comes to food.  The big challenge has been with all the other things that I ingest like vitamins, skin care, personal care (deoderant, toothpaste, lip balm, shampoo, conditioner to name a few).  So, today I have some info on how to supplement with gluten free vitamins and a special Mothers Day offer below.

Recovering From Gluten Induced Damage Requires The Right Nutrition…

Years of gluten exposure can damage the gastrointestinal tract and hinder the body’s ability to properly digest, absorb, and assimilate nutrients into your cells where they work to support energy, hormone balance, and many other important functions…

Supplementation is Critical For Those With Gluten Induced Gut Damage

Multiple studies have shown the relationship between vitamin and mineral deficiencies and gluten intolerance and celiac disease. It is well established that damage to the intestinal cells can lead to malabsorption and poor digestion. One study showed that celiac patients following the gluten free diet still had vitamin and mineral deficiencies after 10 years of compliance. Add to this the fact that the chronic autoimmune inflammatory damage taxes the nutritional status of the body and we are left with chronically ill patients who need supplementation as part of their recovery process. Now add to this that almost 1/4 of all supplements contain hidden gluten and we have a major medical disaster.

“we investigated the presence of gluten in twenty one common dietary supplements from the national market using the immunochromatographic assay. This visual assay proved to be an efficient rapid tool for gluten screening as an alternative to the ELISA techniques. The results have shown the presence of gluten in 23.8% of the investigated samples (vitamins, minerals, plant extracts, probiotics supplements, lactoferrin, propolis supplements).” – Source: Roum Arch Microbiol Immunol. 2011 Oct-Dec;70(4):174-7.

    Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. However, this doesn’t apply to me. I sympathize with those who suffer from this condition.

    There seems to be so much in the media now about gluten sensitivity. I’m so glad that you figured this out in your own life, Wendy. It would be awful to suffer from the consequences without ever figuring out why.

    Wow, I totally didn’t even think about other non-food items like toiletries etc… you’re extremely knowledgable in this area Wendy, your blog posts really show that 🙂
