Finally Found The Culprit

I've been feeling unwell for a few weeks and trying to find the cause has been killing me, but I think I finally have it. I reread labels on all supplements. The Spring Valley Vitamin E I started on a little while does not list soy as an ingredient, but it is not mentioned along with the things it is free of: gluten, salt, sugar, artificial color or flavor, starch, wheat or lactose.

That got me suspicious so I went to the manufacturer

Vitamins have got me so many times, I am very careful of them now. Good job on finding that issue!

Yep..vitamin E, also called topherol got me too! It took a while to figure out. I get violently ill from soy oil..and lethicin too. I've read that a lot of people don't react to the oil or lethicin..but I guess we are ones who do?

I'm SO glad you figured this out. I know you've been wracking your brain trying to get to the bottom of what was getting you.

Wishing you speedy healing!

OK, I thought I had this figured out, but I got hit again this morning. I've been taking GNC Solotron as my multi-vitamin. The product website states clearly that it does not contain soy. BUT when looking more closely at ingredients, the E is from d-alpha Tocopheryl Succinate. Looking further into that, I found that it was derived from wheat germ, but is now derived from soybean oil. Either way, it is a problem. So are labeling laws in the States.

Hope this helps someone else out there.
