Hi, I am not a Celiac though I am a strict gluten-free eater. My worst intolerances are g-f and sulfite. My diet combines low glycemic choices with the guideline of 'do not eat' food that causes me pain. Autoimmune conditions in need of bio-identical hormones, sulfite-free, artificial-free, etc... foods lead me to my best source. www.doctorsnutrition.com. Site under reconstuction please call.

The greatest love story is your own. If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win. You are the happiness master of your own mind. Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good. Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness. I may not recognize the significance until some time later. Is my resistance to change really that strong? Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson; Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;
I have been taking these vitamins since being diagnosed with Celiac and have never had a reaction. Cellulose itself does not contain gluten as it is a different molecule. It is listed as safe to eat on all the celiac sites that I have seen.
I guess my concern is, that I had read on another gf board, that even the 'GF' branded supplements can still contain cellulose, which can be from wheat, but they can still be labeled 'GF' - does that make sense?
Do the 'GF' brands you have tried contain cellulose as an ingredient? If so, you haven't had any reactions? That's what I'm looking for.
My budget is very limited right now (my husband's job was relocated out of state and he's looking for a new job) so I can't afford to do a trial and error with vitamins, they can get very pricey!
I use a b-complex from Nature Made that is GF. I also take an iron supplement from my local health food store that is GF. My daughter takes a glucosamine capsule that is GF made by Schiff. Also, I recently found a calcium chew at Trader Joe that is GF (makes me feel I am having a chocolate treat, but it DOES have some calories, so you have to make sure you add that to your daily total). Hope that is helpful. :)
I use All-One that you get in a health food store. It is a powder form and I would stay away from the liquid for since they degrade in liquids. You can also go to their website and order there too. You can also take this vitamin on an empty stomach and it will not cause any problems. It has it own amino acids to help get into your body correctly. I have lupus and was taking all kinds of vitamins and they did not seem to do anything for me but when I started taking this vitamin I started getting up earlier and earlier. Before taking this vitamin I could not get out of bed before 11:00am and sometimes not even after 1:00 pm and would still be tired, but this vitamins formula changed everything. So if they have it at your health food store then get the 10 day one just to see how it works for your body and then you can get the bigger canisters..
If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I was reading about vitamins in another GF forum yesterday and how 'cellulose' (a filler/binder) can be from a wheat source. I have since checked out my vitamins and they all have cellulose and my multi B says 'contains wheat' on the label.
Has anyone found a good GF brand? Have you tried liquid vitamins as an alternative to capsules/pills?
I prefer good quality supplements, like from the health food store, vs. OTC brand vitamins.
