Hello to everyone,

I found out that some supplements cause me gut issues (Daily two caps of Twinlab) and so I searched a lot for an iron free good multivitamin without fillers, stearic acid etc... And I have found one but noticed that hai a lot of calcium which should not be taken as a supplement based on what says dr. Rosedale.

This is the link of this product:

If this is not ok, as I think, which one do you recommend? I wasn't able to find anything better on Iherb with these characteristics. Here is the page of all the multivitamin without iron:

Thank you for your help in advance!

    You may have read at the bottom of this page:   Some recommended products

    Dr. Ron recommends a good multi-vitamin (your choice). Drug/Grocery Store types are not recommended - many are synthetic. TwinLabs, as you have mentioned above, is a good multi, however, due to its strength, it gives many people a gut problem if it is taken without food.

    sure I have read there and the multivitamin that appears is Twinlab One caps Daily which contains calcium. I never took it without food but since other things doesn't give me issues, I arrived to the conclusions that the long list of fillers was the one doing harm. I stopped taking it and things dramatically improved.

    I am quite confused since this recommended supplement contains calcium which is the opposite that dr Rosedale says about calcium. So based on that I should not be worried of a supplement containing calcium?

    The version od Two caps daily which I was taking so are, was recommended several times here from Fiona so this one is without calcium in the list but there are several types of calcium in the list of ingredients on the left. So what is the best choice then? Which one do you take, if I may?

    That calcium amount in a multi-vitamin is of no concern, Dr. Ron's reference is for the calcium supplements that contain mega dosages that some recommend 2 to 3 times daily.

    As far as vitamin fillers, if you suspect a certain one is upsetting your stomach, you would need to shop around to find one that does not.

    • You might check over at the Rosedale FaceBook page and inquire about what multi-vitamin others take.

    I take TwinLabs Daily One and when they are not in stock I purchase the TwinLabs Daily Two.

    thanks although I have read this reply where he says to not use supplements with calcium added and it seemed that should be followed by everyone and not for the person asking the question only. Have I misinterpreted?

    I adjusted article

    That article's main emphasis was centered around magnesium/potassium supplements.

    It appears that the mentioning of the calcium supplement was made because the writer had or was thinking about the push that is out there to get folks to load up on calcium by taking supplements where the calcium is a main or one of the main ingredients and that thought was carried over to that article.

    If you do a search on Calcium Supplements not supplements that have calcium you can find some were the calcium is 1,000 mg. I think this is where the writer's thoughts may have been - It is easy for this to happen.

    I do that myself at times - I will be answering a question and interject another thought that was not directly related but I felt needed to be said, hoping to give as much helpful information as I reasonably can.

    Dear Ken,

    first of all sorry if I caused you some issues by underlining that answer that was giving to the writer. I was really confused. I immagine that is truly not easy for you managing all the support desk on your own.

    Now things are clearer although the supplement I was asking your opinion about probably is still not good because the daily amount of calcium would be 660 gr. The Twinlab one daily caps has only 50 gr of calcium. Even if it is not a supplement of calcium only, it has too much of it. Do you agree?

    Thank you for the links. I have already read them except one, very interesting.

    Thank you again for your constant support and help.

    You did not cause any issues, it will help the Support Team be more aware of how we phrase things.

    I am not sure who the writer is, but I think it may have been Fiona - it was made 4 years ago.

    TwinLabs Daily One has only 25mg of calcium compared to a Calcium Supplement I seen that had 1,000mg.

    I have no knowledge of the exact amount that Dr. Ron considers too much. He may have mentioned it somewhere over the years, I just have not seen or heard it.

    I am guessing that he is referring mainly to an actual Calcium Supplement and not necessarily that calcium in a multi-vitamin or in food.
