Trying A New Way Of Vitamins

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine told me about this company that makes a vitamin type thing in a shake base that you take 2 times a day. He told me how much better he feels and how it has really improved his life (IE: no more head aches or fatigue and sleeps better). His friend then told me that she has depression and fibro milga (i know i spelled that wrong, sorry!) and it has REALLY improved her symptoms. Neither of these people have celiac.

I suffer from fatigue, depression and celiac (DUH!) and they think it might help me feel better. So I'm going to try it for 3 weeks. If it works I'm passing on the info! But I just wanted to give yall a heads up and I'll post on here if i feel any changes.

Has anyone else tried something similar to this? I REALLY hope it works, i'll try anything at this point!

please do pass on the info if you find this supplement helpful. i am on a bunch of vitamins now have a hard time swallowing pills so would love to drink a shake instead, or in addition, to a vitamin regamin. at this point (around 6 weeks in) i will try anything (as long as it's gluten-free) to get feeling closer to normal!!

here is a short summary of the past few days:

day 1: took it, felt fine, started to feel like i was gunna barf but thought it was cause i didn't eat much and was just hungry.

day 2: took it in the morning and barfed my brains out for a few hours.

day 3: took it and could bearly get it down, felt sick after

day 4: took it and i'm trying everything in my power not to barf.

I'm done, it didn't work.

Does anyone have a good vitamin that helps with fatigue?!

I have fatigue as a major symptom. The best thing for me has been my every-other-day B12 injections (I give them to myself); I was dx'd w/ b12 def. long before celiac and may have PA too.

I've been taking Garden of Life Living Multi women's formula. I don't know yet if it really helps w/ fatigue, but it's the first vitamin I've been able to take w/o severe pain, d, reflux, or vomiting. It's a 'whole food' vitamin, meaning that the vitamins come from food (not chemicals) and have been made "body-ready" w/ probiotics and enzymes. It also spreads the dose - you take two 3x a day ... this allows more to be absorbed by your body and it to be less shocking to the system. Big downside - expensive.

I also use a juicer (my favorite is kale-carrot-apple w/ parsley) to up vitamin, etc intake in easily digestible form; juicer takes out the fiber.

I'm looking forward to hearing what vitamins others take - it's such a difficult process!

i have a juicer and have been making juices and that supposedly is the best way to get vitamins back into your system. and some are pretty tasty.
