    With all the buzz about the gluten-free diet, we come across frightening warnings about the nutritional deficiencies. However it is possible to consume healthy foods with balanced gluten-free diet and make up any nutritional gaps with a little more careful planning.

    Celiac disease is a chronic autoimmune disease affecting children and adults. Dermatitis herpetiformis is the skin manifestation of celiac disease. When individuals with Celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis eat foods that contain gluten, an immune response is triggered that causes damage to the villi in the lining of the small intestine. As a result, food and its nutrients are not properly absorbed. Even small amounts of gluten in foods can affect those with celiac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis and cause health problems. Damage can occur to the small intestine even if there are no symptoms present. People who are diagnosed with celiac disease are often deficient in vitamins and minerals. Celiac disease causes damage to the small intestine and since most of the nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine it is seen that people with celiac disease have difficulty in absorbing the nutrients. Therefore it is recommended that persons with celiac disease consider the use of gluten-free calcium and multivitamin and mineral supplements. Non-celiac gluten sensitivity is an immune response to gluten with many symptoms. Although it is not believed that non-celiac gluten sensitivity involves damage to the small intestine, gluten must still be omitted from the diet. Complete health offers a range of gluten-free vitamin supplements to help you maintain a gluten-free lifestyle. Choose the wide supplement selection offered in the general health section and avail the benefits of gluten-free vitamin and mineral supplements.

    Studies show that people who solely rely on foods for their nutrient intake and people on a long-term gluten-free diet may not eat enough iron, calcium or B vitamins. Even a well-balanced diet can still fall short on certain nutrients. Therefore choosing gluten-free supplements to fill in those nutritional gaps is the best way to start working towards a healthy diet. It is necessary to consume a well balanced gluten-free diet emphasizing fruits and vegetables, whole gluten-free grains, beans, legumes, nuts, eggs, low fat dairy products and lean meats and seafood, unless you are following a vegetarian diet. Complete health has a wide selection of gluten-free products in the genera health section. Nature’s own is one of the most popular brands that manufacture gluten-free vitamin supplements. Nature’s own Vitamin A 5000IU: Retinyl Palmitate, Zinc + C, Triple strength Garlic +C, horseradish fenugreek, multivitamin Omega 3 Fish oil, Sleep-Ezy are some of the popular supplements available on complete health.

    Choosing a Gluten-free Multivitamin

    Supplementation is recommended because very few people eat a perfect diet. For example, B vitamins are found in a range of foods, including gluten-free whole grains, meats, leafy green vegetables, nuts, seeds, beans and fruit. Vegans tend to be specifically low in B12, which is mainly found in animal products. Also B12 absorption decreases with age and medications that suppress acid production. Therefore choosing gluten-free B12 supplementation and consuming whole grains, like brown rice, wild rice, gluten-free oatmeal, quinoa, buckwheat, etc can benefit for those low in B12.

    Calcium and Vitamin D supplements are most frequently needed, depending on dietary intake and blood tests. Individual needs will also determine if omega 3 fatty acids, digestive enzymes and probiotics may be appropriate, too.

    Ways to find the right vitamin:

    • Supplements that are labeled “Gluten-free”
    • A Multivitamin/mineral with 100 percent of the RDA of B vitamins.
    • Products labeled “Wheat-free” are not necessarily gluten-free. They may still contain rye, oat or barley-based ingredients that are not 100% gluten free.
    • People with sensitive stomach should avoid ingredients such as fructose, lactose, polyethylene glycol and polyvinyl alcohol as these tend to upset the stomach.
    • Choosing supplements with calcium citrate as an ingredient may help people with stomach distress.

    Choosing Nutrients for Gluten-intolerant

    Before choosing any supplementation it is important to remember that every individual is different and has different needs. While too little vitamin D is harmful and too much can prove dangerous. Choosing a multivitamin and calcium supplement with vitamin D is advisable to people with celiac disease. But before starting any supplementation, it is important to get tested for nutritional deficiencies by a general physician. The physician may recommend higher doses depending on the level of deficiency.

    Although the term “multivitamin” is generally used to refer vitamins, it should also contain important minerals such as calcium zinc, copper etc. The right supplement may help improve the nutrient status of individuals who cannot get the nutrients they need from diet alone.

    Know your needs

    Consult with a physician and/or dietitian who can help you accurately identify your unique nutrient status and what your shortfall nutrients may be. Depending on the report you may be advised to take doses that are appropriate for you.

    Know your product

    Over the past few years, the gluten-free product market has grown exponentially, with hundreds of products now available from major brands and the choices are seemingly endless and confusing. It is imperative to know the product thoroughly you are about to use. Some of the common sources of gluten include
    • Breads
    • Cereal Products
    • Cookies, Cakes and other Baked Goods
    • Crackers
    • Croutons
    • Flour
    • Pastas
    • Stuffings and Dressings

    It certainly takes time to adjust to the gluten-free diet. It is quite normal to mourn old food habits and food choices. However staying focused and informed about the new food choices can help you eat healthy foods. Eating fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats and proteins can help get the nutrition and can also be very satisfying. Complete health offers a wide selection of gluten-free supplement brands to choose from.
