vitamin supplements
Feb 10, 2001

I can not take a multivitamin capsule. They are too strong and upset my stomach. Is there something else you can suggest to get extra nutrients in my diet?? Is there some sort of drink I could make?? Thank you.

Response from Dr. Dieterich

If you eat a well-balanced diet with lots of fruit and vegetables, then you really do not need a vitamin supplement. Unless you are having severe diarrhea or malabsorption, vitamins are usually excessive. So eat well and don't worry about supplements! Good luck! DTD
