Help!  My multivitamin makes me nauseous!   My multivitamin was making me feel sick, so I switched to one with less iron.  But that didn’t help.  I really need my multi!  What are my options?

It is true that high levels of iron in a multi can cause nausea.  But even in reduced amounts, certain types of iron can still trigger queasiness.  Steer clear of synthetic forms like ferrous gluconate, ferrous sulfate and ferrous fumarate, which are hard on the stomach.  Instead, look for a formula containing iron picolinate or iron chelate, which are gentler.  Another possible nausea trigger: vitamins’ filler ingredients.  So avoid microcrystalline cellulose, mannitol, sorbitol, dextrose, magnesium stearate, sodium stearyl fumarate and polyethylene glycol.  The one I take is Uni Key Health Female Multiple.
