Research suggests significant vitamin deficiencies in individuals with celiac disease, even among those on a gluten-free diet. This may be related to recent findings that many people with celiac disease who were diagnosed as adults do not demonstrate full intestinal recovery. However, it may also be caused by cutting wheat out of the diet leads to nutritional deficiencies unless something is added back to provide those missing nutrients. At a recent medical appointment, I discovered that I had low iron and immune function. As a result, I began seeking out ways to improve my health. In recent posts, I have discussed my efforts to exercise, eat well balanced, nutritional meals, my effort to move toward an organic diet, and my switch to natural cosmetics and self-care products.
However, the single most effective thing I have done to improve my health has been to start taking vitamins and supplements. I met with Janet, my local Shaklee representative, and she made recommendations based on my diet, lifestyle, and symptoms. The majority of Shaklee’s nutritional products are gluten free. After three weeks taking the supplements, I felt like I had more energy and fewer headaches. I have even lost a few pounds, and I’m sleeping better at night.
Here’s what I’ve been taking:
Vitalizer: contains 80 bio-optimized nutrients, including probiotics, omega-3s, and antioxidants
Nutriferon: clinically tested natural immune booster
Vivix: cellular anti-aging tonic that works at the DNA level
Energizing Soy Protein Shake: soy protein that helps to build muscle, support the immune system, retain normal cholesterol levels, and promote heart health.
