Looking For Safe Vitamins

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to find Vitamins. The ones I am eating has soy in them...so now I know why stomach got upset again and again. :blink:

Anyways, I have been trying to look online, in my local grocery store and I did a search here but came up with tons of threads..

So I am wondering if anyone knows of any casein, gluten and soy free Vitamins?

I am taking Calcium tablets that are safe but I was thinking I should eat a multi vitamin/mineral one too.

Freeda brand vitamins are what we use - I've never been able to find them in a store so we order them online. They have a website - www.freedavitamins.com. They were recommended by the nutritionist.

They have so many...which ones do you get? Did your nutritionist recommend any inparticular?

I find that I can feel bad from some Vitamines...especially if they have a lot of Magnesium for some reason. I get fast blood sugar drops from that. Kinda strange..

No, I don't believe you can, you have to order them.

Okay, so I haven't had the money to order any vitamins yet. I meant to ask you both if the vitamins are big in size. I really hate swallowing big pills. Seems I have to work up courage every time...

I saw that the one brand had the smaller sized pills. If the original ones are large I'll go for the small ones intead.

I absolutely hate taking pills, too. But even though the ones I take are regular sized (about the same size of any other brand I've tried that made gel caps, which are the ones you can open if you want), I have no problem swallowing those. I HATE pills that have any square corners, I wonder why anybody makes those. Those get stuck in my esophagus (or more likely my hiatus hernia), and I have to make them go down with food.

So, If you're anything like me, those hypallergenic ones will be fine. They will let you order a sample for $3.85 I think. I did that before I ordered the large container, as that's a lot of pills (it will last me four month at taking three pills a day, which is what my doctor ordered me to do).

So, I had a chance to try them first. Which is a great idea, and you ought to do that, too.

Someone here recommended Freeda Vitamins and I've got to say I'm very happy with them. I take their cal-mag supplement and a multivitamin and they're casein, soy and gluten-free... and also kosher.

I have the Member's Mark brand of mulitvitamins (from Sam's Club) and they say gluten free on the back. I don't know about the other stuff though. 450 of them were less than $10.

I ended up getting Kirkman Labs EveryDay multivitamines.

Now, it seems they are for kids.... I must have been brain fogged when I ordered. :P

These.. http://www.kirkmanlabs.com/products/multiv...veryday054.html

But it still looks like the dosage is the same for kids and adults, so I guess these should be fine for me still.

The size of the pill isn't very big at all.

They are free from corn, wheat, casein, gluten, soy, starch, added preservatives, artificial colors or flavors.

How much Calcium do you all take a day? I can't have Casein so so far I have taken 1000 mg of calcium a day.

Now I will probably end up taking 1300 mg..
