Seeking Fish Oil And Multivitamin

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, thanks for reading. I've been using Country Life liquid multi-vitamin and their calcium for almost 10 months now, and I definitely think its a large part of how I regained a lot of my energy, BUT I am concerned. I have a known citrus allergy to Oranges, Lemons, grapefruit, and so on (as shown in IGG testing and personal experience) so I've recently stopped taking it as I fear the NONI juice in it might have been causing an allergic reaction. I seem to have to go to the bathroom almost every time I use it in the morning, so I was wondering if perhaps I was reacting to it. To make a long story short, I wanted to give a new vitamin a try, but its hard to find one that is as complete as this one, and easy to absorb (chelated, liquid, etc) as I have poor absorption. I'd be delighted to hear any suggestions on this as after searching the forums I still haven't found one to my liking.

Another important question is a Fish Oil. I haven't been able to start taking one for the fats I desperately need because of my soy allergy :( I recently tried Spectrums Cod liver oil, but had a bad reaction with little bumps forming on my hands. It's very hard to find a good one without Vitamin E derived from Soy for a preservative and I'd LOVE some help on this one as I feel I'd benefit greatly from a Fish oil.

Thank you so much for your time!!

I take Nature Made Cod Liver Oil. It is gluten free and simply has:

Cod Liver Oil, Gelatin, Glycerin and Water.

I am sensitive to soy and it was the only fish oil I could find without it.

I take NOW Super EPA with 1000 mg natural fish oil concentrate, in a softgel with gelatin, glycerin, water and Vitamin E (as natural ld-alpha tocopheral). nowfoods.com However, it does contain soy derivatives which I do not react to.

Thank you all for your suggestions. The MDR one looks interesting, I'll certainly consider that one :]

Looking at the Cod Liver Oil on Nature made's website they state it contains soy, perhaps its in an amount you can tolerate tho. I seem to have a tolerance level for it, but not much. With the Spectrum oil only a tsp was enough to send me into an allergic reaction so I'm trying to be more cautious. I envy those who can handle soy for sure, would make finding a fish oil for the all important fatty acids easy :lol: I would just increase the amount of fish I eat but I almost never trust fish over the counter as it is due to paranoia of cross contamination.

Thanks for the help tho, I will keep looking for that one!

Don't get me wrong, I usually react to soy, but not to these for some reason. Maybe I am not as sensitive as I used to be because it used to be I could not handle soy lelcithin in chocolate but now I can :)

Interesting. Perhaps it is the form that the soy comes in that you are able to tolerate as well. Since there are different make-ups, proteins, etc - you may be able to tolerate one but not the other :] Envious I remain ;) I can see the negative effects each day that my deficiencies present me (fortunately getting further vitamin testing on Tuesday), but the lack of essential fats is killer. I seem to lose so much of my food after eating it that I really need the support of a fish oil. The search continues ^_^
