Liquid Vitamins & Supplements
« on: July 09, 2009, 04:52:38 AM »
I've recently had to start on a Low-Residue diet due to moderat to severe gastroparesis.  My diet is changing so radically the nutritionist (and all the literature I've read) suggested I should supplement my eating with multivitamin/supplement since it will be hard to get all the appropriate vitamins & minerals by diet alone.

With my slow stomach (which is what gastroparesis means) I am looking for either a liquid option or one that is completely water soluble.  I've looked and found many different ones but was hoping someone here might have some experience with the liquid variety.

Thanks for reading and I appreciate any input or suggestions!

I don't have any recommendation for liquid vitamins, but I take this, which might be suitable.

Added Protection III (AMNI) Each bottle, 180 tabs, a 30 day supply. This superior, highly bioavailable formula, with cutting-edge mineral delivery forms by Albion Laboratories, supplies over 30 basic vitamins, minerals, trace elements and other nutrients, including beta-carotene, vitamin K and boron. Added Protection III is unique in that the vitamins are coated to separate them from minerals which can oxidize and weaken them (seen sometimes as black spots on tablets). Beta-carotene gives the tablets their pink color. Added Protection III is extremely bioavailable since it can be taken in up to six separate doses per day if one desires, and the tablets are documented to disintegrate within 30 minutes following digestion. In addition, the minerals found in this multivitamin are obtained from Albion Labs, which produces chelated forms that are the most bioavailable (easily absorbed) in the industry, according to some studies. Chelation means that the mineral is embedded in amino acids, in this case, between two glycine molecules. The dosages of the minerals are also designed to provide optimal quantities but not too much, since too much can be toxic. In addition, the chelated (and other forms) are designed to limit side effects experienced by sensitive individuals. If you experience any stomach problems, nausea, diarrhea or constipation once starting this regimen, you may be experiencing a reaction to this formulation and should stop to see if the problem clears up. Recommended dose: 6 tabs/day (2-3x/day—or more often—with food). Store cool, dry, away from light.

Six tablets provide:

B-Complex Vitamins:
Vitamin B1 (thiamine mononitrate) 100 mg
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) 50 mg

Other Vitamins:

Beta Carotene (added Vitamin A activity) 5,000 IU
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid, corn-free) 1200 mg
Vitamin D-3 (fish liver oil) 200 IU
Vitamin E (d-alpha tocopheryl succinate) 400 IU
Vitamin K-1 (phytonadione) 60 mcg

Calcium (citrate ascorbate) 500 mg

Hey Andy,

I used to take a liquid mulitvitamin a while back, but I'll be darned if I can remember the name.

I do remember it was cherry flavored and I used to keep it in the refrigerator because it made it easier to swallow for me.

I have a hard time swallowing warm, sweet liquids.  ;)

I really liked it. I switched because the doctor wanted me on a senior vitamin.  

I will run by the health food store and see if I can figure out what it was.

Risred -- that sound really complete and if it actually breaks down that quickly that would be good since my stomach is so slow.

Mark -- I would really appreciate that.  I would prefer not to have to add another 6 pills a day if I don't have too.  Plus liquid is what the literature recommends.  I would just hate to go out and order something and just end up gag from the taste  :P
