Supplements Recommendations

Supplementation is vital while on a gluten-free diet due to a range of mineral and vitamin deficiencies, but we can fight it together with a healthy, balanced and planned out diet.

As you may or may not know, those with celiac disease and quite often those with gluten intolerance can suffer deficiencies from malnutrition due to their small intestines not being able to absorb nutrients from various food sources efficiently. It’s quite common with those diagnosed. Most people are commonly deficient in vitamin B, vitamin D, riboflavin, niacin, folate, zinc, calcium, magnesium, fiber, iron as well as protein and calories, with less common of deficiencies in copper and vitamin b6.

We advise you to run some tests to determine your nutrient levels to see where you can improve.

General Health

Vitamins and minerals, known as micronutrients are essential to our body as they perform various crucial roles in keeping us healthy, such as protecting us against diseases, healing wounds, boosting the immune system, converting food into energy and hundreds of other tasks, and even though we only need small amounts of it we end up forgetting their importance.

Taking multivitamins will leave you feeling fresh, energized and better overall, especially while your microvilli are in the process of being healed.

Studies estimate that more than fifty percent of patients diagnosed with celiac disease have iron deficiency. Iron is essential for healthy development and growth of the body as it metabolizes proteins and has helped to produce red blood cells and hemoglobin. Without low levels of Iron people can experience anemia and other conditions like coughing, weakness, headaches and more.

Calcium, ultimately known for promoting bone health all throughout your life, building and maintaining it. Muscles, nerves, and your heart also required the proper amount of calcium to function as the human body doesn’t produce it. There are a lot of food sources that have a good amount of calcium, but when you’re unable to provide your body with enough calcium from food sources, supplementation comes in handy.

Vitamin D (known as the sunshine vitamin) deficiency is common among the world’s population, in fact it occurs in 64 percent of men and 71 percent of women with celiac disease, and it’s estimated that worldwide, 1 billion people have a deficiency in vitamin D across all ages and ethnicities according to Harvard University.

There is one type of fat that you don’t want to avoid, and that’s omega-3 fatty acids which your body needs to function, and it also has amazing health benefits that we tend to forget such as lowering elevated triglyceride levels which put you at risk of having heart disease, it curbs joint pain and stiffness, and it even improves the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory supplementation, and various other health benefits.
