Frequently asked Questions
General Product Questions
Q : Is it advisable or safe to take all 3 Celivites products together, or will the vitamins/nutrients be overlapping?
A : You may have noticed that many supplements do what is called mega dosing by giving much more than the recommended daily value; These daily values are based on guidelines were developed by the National Academies.
When we developed our three products we knew that some people would not need iron, and others may not need calcium, while some would need all three, so we broke our products into three separate products. We do not believe in putting everything into one multivitamin because it forces people to take things they neither want or need. We designed three separate products that are complimentary to one another and can be taken as a system. The amounts of each ingredient in CeliVites are well within the safety range when taking all three products together. We designed them for safety and efficacy whether taken together are apart.
Q : How can I find detailed information about the ingredients?
A : We offer in depth information about each product on the product page within this website.
Q : What makes your products different?
A : The CeliVites formulas are designed specifically to address common deficiencies in the gluten free diet*. Our formulas are straightforward and elegant. Experimental or unproven ingredients have been left out.
Q : Do I need a doctor’s prescription to use these products?
A : As is the case with all medications and dietary supplements, you should consult your doctor before taking CeliVites. He or she can help you tailor a supplement regime to your particular needs.
Q : Can I use it past the expiration date?
A : Because nutrients are susceptible to degradation when exposed to the elements and over time, we do not recommend taking CeliVites past the expiration date.
Q : What is the minimum age to take these products? Or, can children take these products?
A : CeliVites Blood Health, Bone Health and Body Health are formulated for adults and are not recommended for children. Children under the age of 13 have daily nutrient requirements that are different than those for adults. We anticipate the inclusion of products for children as part of the CeliVites line in the future.
Q : How often is it taken?
A : Each of the CeliVites products have been formulated to give you what you need in one dose per day. Taking a supplement should not be burdensome.
Q : All of your products gluten free?
A : Yes, all of our products are gluten free and batch tested to be free of gluten to less than 5ppm. While the new labeling law by the US FDA allows products to be labeled as gluten free as long as they have less than 20ppm detectable gluten, we have taken a more rigorous approach. We believe that no amount of detectible gluten is acceptable. That is why our products are free of gluten to the limit of detectability with current testing modalities, or less than 5ppm.
Q : Are your products manufactured in a dedicated, gluten free facility?
A : We partner with a high quality supplement manufacturer within the USA. We have taken strict quality control measures to ensure that cross-contamination is prevented. After a careful inspection of our manufacturing processes, our products are now in the process of being certified gluten free by the Celiac Sprue Association. Additionally, we at Gluten Free Therapeutics batch test each of our products independently as they come off the production line to ensure they are free of gluten to less than 5ppm.
Q : Are CeliVites only for people who are diagnosed with Celiac disease?
A : Everyone who is practicing a gluten free diet can benefit from the superior formulations we have designed*. Even people who are not on a gluten free diet can benefit from these supplements to support body, blood and bone health. We have made each product with the highest quality of ingredients available.
Q : What do you mean by highly absorbable?
A : Each ingredient in each of our products is the most advanced form available. In most cases, this means that the ingredient is highly absorbable relative to other supplements. For example CeliVites Blood Health provides iron as Ferrochel®, which is absorbed up to three times better than ferrous sulfate. In fact, all of our minerals are provided in chelated form, to allow for maximal absorption. Similarly, B-vitamins in CeliVites are provided in the coenzyme form, bypassing the first metabolic step*.
Q : Are you planning any new products in the future?
A : Yes, we have several nutritional and cosmetic products in our pipeline, stay tuned!
Questions about Body Health
Q : What allergens does Body Health contain?
A : Body Health does NOT contain yeast, wheat, gluten, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, sugar, preservatives, soy, peanuts or tree nuts, artificial color and artificial flavor.
Q : How often should I take Body Health?
A : Take Body Health once a day. We believe that taking a supplement should fit seamlessly into your busy lifestyle, so each CeliVites product has been formulated to give you exactly what you need in one dose per day.
Q : What form of folic acid do your products contain?
A : Our choice of folic acid is an example of the thoughtful formulation behind CeliVites. Approximately 12% of the healthy white population has a genetic polymorphism that reduces the activity of MTHFR, an enzyme required to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF. Therefore, all of the folic acid in the CeliVites line is in the form of 5-MTHF. This is good for you because 5-MTHF does not require enzymatic conversion by MTHFR, and is therefore readily available for your body to utilize. Both the Blood Health and Body Health supplements contain 5-MTHF – each at 100% daily value (400 mcg). At Gluten Free Therapeutics we always choose the most absorbable, safest form of each ingredients.

A : Blood Health does NOT contain yeast, wheat, gluten, milk or milk derivatives, lactose, sugar, preservatives, soy, peanuts or tree nuts, artificial color and artificial flavor.
Q : Should a patient have his/her blood levels of iron checked after taking this product?
A : While Blood Health by CeliVites was designed to support healthy red blood cell development*, any persons taking nutritional supplements to address a specific medical concern should do so under the guidance of a physician.
Q : Does a patient need to have a diagnosis of anemia before taking Blood Health?
A : A large percentage of those diagnosed with celiac disease also have iron deficiency anemia. Therefore, if you have been diagnosed with celiac disease it would be wise to ask your doctor to determine whether anemia is also present*. In fact, many people find out they have celiac disease because of an initial diagnosis of anemia.
Q : Am I at risk if I decide to take Blood Health without having anemia?
A : Those persons not deficient in iron can develop iron toxicity by taking too much supplemental iron*. As with any nutritional supplement, seek your doctor’s advice before taking this product. WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children.

Q : What is Ferrochel® and why is it beneficial?
A : Ferrochel® is a patented, chelated form of iron from Albion labs with three times the bioavailability of ferrous sulfate. Compared to ferrous sulfate, the Ferrochel® form of iron more closely resembles iron found in food and is therefore better absorbed across the intestinal tract. At Gluten Free Therapeutics we always choose the most absorbable, safest form of our ingredients.

Q : What is PureWay-C® and why is it beneficial?
A : We include Vitamin C with our Blood Health because Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron.

At Gluten Free Therapeutics we always choose the most absorbable, safest form of our ingredients.

A : Take Blood Health once a day. We believe that taking a supplement should fit seamlessly into your busy lifestyle, so each CeliVites product has been formulated to give you exactly what you need in one dose a day.
Q : What form of folic acid is used in Blood Health?
A : Our choice of folic acid is an example of the thoughtful formulation behind CeliVites. Approximately 12% of the healthy white population has a genetic polymorphism that reduces the activity of MTHFR required to convert folic acid to 5-MTHF. Therefore, all of the folic acid in the CeliVites line is in the form of 5-MTHF. This is good for you because 5-MTHF does not require enzymatic conversion by MTHFR, and is therefore readily available for downstream utilization by the body. Both the Blood Health and Body Health supplements contain 5-MTHF – each at 100% daily value (400 mcg).

We believe that taking a supplement should fit seamlessly into your busy lifestyle, so each CeliVites product is formulated to give you exactly what you need in one dose per day.
Q : Should I take Bone Health if I have osteopenia or osteoperosis?
A : CeliVites is unique among bone health supplements because, in addition to calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin D, it contains 180mcg of vitamin K2 (as menaquinone-7). A clinical study demonstrated that this dose was effective at preventing bone loss in healthy postmenopausal women over a three-year period*. At Gluten Free Therapeutics we always choose the most absorbable, safest form of our ingredients. As with any diagnosis, however, you should consult your doctor to determine which supplements are best for you.
