Ask the Expert: Multi-Vitamins

Q. What if my stomach can not handle iron? Can I find a multi-vitamin without iron?

A. It takes some patience and research to find a multivitamin that meets your nutritional needs. But, one should feel confident that there is a supplement out there that will be right for you. There are many multivitamins that do not contain iron – read labels! It is also possible to research brands on health food websites that sell different brands of vitamin and mineral supplements. Many of these sites list the exact ingredients of each supplement they sell. Usually health food store employees are very knowledgeable about their products and can recommend an iron-free supplement. It usually only takes a couple of extra minutes in the grocery store or health food store to read labels and find a multivitamin that does not contain any iron.
