Men's multivitamin

I've been having an increasing amount of itching on my right shin since last year and made the connection of taking a higher quality gummy vitamin from Smarty Pants. I bought 4 bottles and took about a half dose each day while skipping some days. I've really had no luck with any multi vitamins anyways, so I'll just give them up for a while. Honestly, I think most supplements are wasteful, except when a person is truly deficient in something. Also, lab created vitamins don't act the same in the body as natural foods do, since they have the full spectrum of nutrients and the body's enzymes acting on them.

Yes, when i stopped, the itching went away. It only contains the basic vitamins and minerals without a bunch of extra stuff like others. Could be many reasons why it's causing the itching. I dummy generally do well with any others either.

The reason I asked @ryanator is I had something similar happen here a few weeks ago myself. I have been taking the men's Costco multivitamin for awhile now, but a few weeks ago I broke out in this weird rash on my chest. It went down my sides, on the front of my shoulders and stopped at my waste. Then it got worse and worse. My wife was trying to get me to go to the doctor for it even. The first thing I did was try to figure out what I was eating differently. I was eating a lot of peanuts at the time and smoked oysters, so I have laid off both. It eventually went away about about 3 weeks. It does make me wonder though about the multivitamin. I am still taking them though and everything seems to be alright.

Interesting, peanuts and shellfish are each one of the top allergens, I wonder if those were causing the reactions.

Just found out the multivitamins I was taking from Costco expired in January 2018 :eek: So someone recommend me some new one off Amazon please.

Update- Still doing the Men's One a Day but also taking Omega 3 fish oil, vitamin D3, and B12. Haven't been sick in a long, long time.

I will caution against too much vitamin D and B12 as well as Niacin. They can raise liver functions. It may be more an issue with me since I have UC but I know those are the real culprits in being a bit harsh on the liver.

I take a pretty small amount. Nothing crazy.

Sill doing Men's One a Day as well, need to get back on pro-biotics though. I read a lot on the internet about people not getting enough vitamin D these days though.
