People who suffer from gluten intolerance and celiac disease not only face the signs and symptoms of celiac disease but might also show signs of vitamin deficiency. Juggling a gluten-free diet can be a challenge, and despite your best efforts, you might still have some deficiencies. We have created a supplement that can help combat these deficiencies for those who are living with celiac disease.
Inovera Bioscience has created FORVIA®, a multivitamin/mineral supplement that is designed to be highly absorbable, which is especially important for those who suffer from gastrointestinal conditions that inhibit absorption. For those who have been diagnosed with IBD, Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and celiac disease, we offer tablets and chewables. Shop FORVIA now!
Here are some of the signs of vitamin deficiency you might experience when living a gluten-free lifestyle, and how FORVIA can help.
Micronutrients: Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, and Folate
Micronutrients are minerals and vitamins that are required for the body to function, and they’re only needed in small quantities. Despite the low amount you need, they’re essential to producing hormones, enzymes, proteins, and other chemicals that your body can’t function without. Vitamin D is critical to bone health, your respiratory system, immune function, and mental and emotional health. Your brain utilizes vitamin B12, which is crucial to memory, cognition, and energy. Folate, also a B vitamin, and also known as folic acid, produces DNA and produces the genetic materials responsible for cell division, new cell growth, and nerve health.
Minerals: Calcium and Iron
Calcium and iron are essential to many functions of the body, and if you’re living with celiac disease or a gluten-free diet, you’ve likely noticed some of these signs. You’re probably already familiar with calcium’s role in bone health and strength. However, it also plays a significant role in colon and rectal health, preventing cardiovascular disease, it regulates blood pressure, prevents kidney stones, and helps with managing weight. Iron is essential to make hemoglobin, which carries oxygen through the body. Your immune system’s health is also dependent upon iron to function optimally.
When you’re unable to consume wheat, barley, and rye due to celiac disease or gluten intolerance, getting the right nutrients is all the more important. Rebuilding the cells of the intestinal tract will lead to better absorption of nutrients, which, in turn, will help your body function optimally and heal from the inflammation. It’s possible that you will experience a decrease in the signs and symptoms of celiac disease and gluten intolerance, too.
FORVIA is highly absorbable by the intestinal tract. That’s especially important when going through the stress and inflammation that celiac disease can cause. It includes vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, as well as B12 and folate. And to further promote healing, it includes zinc, which plays a role in immune function as well. Calcium comes in the form of dicalcium phosphate, which is a non-gassy form of the mineral.
