Key Vitamins That You Need While Living Gluten Free


In the past, I've briefly shared on how important it is to take vitamin supplements after going gluten-free. In fact, I even did a video on it! (Man, I looked so young) Now since this is a topic that has tons of information on it, I'd like to share with you the facts but also share my personal experience with it as well. It's important to note that every single person is different and my celiac is not your celiac. However, vitamin deficiency is something that every celiac or gluten intolerant person deals with after going gluten-free and it's something that definitely needs to be addressed.

Consider taking these vitamins while being gluten-free:

  • Iron

  • Calcium

  • Vitamin D

  • Zinc

  • Vitamin B12

  • Magnesium

Note: These vitamins are the most commonly deficient vitamins in someone who is gluten-free. This of course does not apply to everyone and varies per person.

Common vitamin deficiency symptoms:

  • Fatigue

  • Shortness of breath

  • Dizziness

  • Pale or yellowish skin

  • Irregular heartbeats

  • Weight loss

  • Numbness or tingling in your hands and feet

  • Muscle weakness

  • Personality changes

  • Unsteady movements

  • Mental confusion or forgetfulness
