Is Bonine Gluten-Free? If you’re anything like me, motion sickness knocks you off your feet.

Bus ride? Boat ride? Travel by plane? Swinging on a swing set? All recipes for motion sickness.

And being gluten-free for celiac can complicate things. Now finding something that reduces symptoms isn’t the only challenge. Now you have to worry about if those things are celiac-safe.

And reading and identifying gluten on medication labels can be a daunting task.

A couple of weeks ago, a client came to me desperate for motion sickness relief. “Bonine was the only thing that worked for me” she said, “the only statement I’ve seen about it is from 2010 which is over 11 years ago – how do I know if it’s still up to date?”.

I got to work and started contacting the company. I emailed them and got no response (figures). So then I called them and as of 8/24/2021, per the representative I spoke with on the phone, “Bonine products are gluten-free”.

So if you’re looking for a gluten-free motion sickness medication, you can add Bonine to the list.

Other Gluten-free Motion Sickness Relief Options

Looking for other gluten-free motion sickness relief options? As someone who gets motion sick just driving around the block, here are some of my favorites:

  • Sea Bands – These are bands put pressure on your wrist that somehow magically reduce motion sickness. They are tight so if you have circulation or nerve issues, they might be too much.
  • Genexa Motion Sickness Relief – These are chewable tablets that are allergy, dye, and gluten-free.
  • Ginger candy, tea, chews, etc. is great for nausea. Be cautious of using this if you have GERD or IBS and find spicy foods are trigger.
  • Peppermints also can be helpful in reducing motion sickness and I am known to suck on mints for an entire flight just so my stomach stays in check. Also be wary though if you have GERD.
