Immune system support for gluten free kids


With the onset of flu season, we are all looking for ways to boost the immune systems of our gluten free kids and keep them from getting sick. This is especially important for kids who may already have a compromised immune system due to Celiac Disease.

Unfortunately, finding just the right vitamins and immunity boosters can be difficult when you need to have something that is gluten free. Gluten is a popular additive in a lot of medications and could be hidden under several names. Add to that the problems of multiple allergies and you may feel a bit stuck with no real options.
