I need a suppliment. Doc suggested Brewers Yeast, I checked it is not an option for celiacs. He is reluctant to give injections. I check food sources and because of other dietary limitation that won't be enough. Can we take pills? I don't do well with pills. Are ther capsules?

I take B6 2 times a day. My urologist put me on it to help me kidneys. I just take the Sun Valley brand or whatever it is at Walmart. They are tiny pills. They have a little taste to them, but if you swallow them quick, you can't even taste it.

If you have a hard time taking pills you can put them in applesauce then take them. You hardly know they are in there. You can crush them first if you like but that will change the taste of the applesauce. Most of the time I put mine in whole. Pudding will also work. Something that you don't chew before you swallow. Good Luck.

Liquid vitmins are another option, and bonus is your body will assimilate them better and you will actually absorb all the vitmins before they have to take the time to "break down" in your digestive tract. So if you are taking them for theraputic reasons that might be the way to go. Some vitamins don't break down at all and then it's a waste of time and $$

good luck B)

Nutritional yeast (slightly different than brewer's yeast) might be an option for you. Red Star is a popular brand.
