Hey Able,

Perhaps this question is silly, but I’m not a biochemist:

You call out synthetic B vitamin supplements as being bad; are there any natural B vitamin supplements that are ok? Or are all B vitamins inside multi-vitamins considered synthetic because they are not from actual food?

I’ve seen some of your other posts where it seemed that your chief compaint about multi-vitamins was the fact that many had a poor balance of B-vitamins. So I checked the balance in mine and it looked ok — ranged from 100% to 167% in terms of % daily value. No crazy percentages in the thousands. SO I had thought that my multi-vitamin was ok, but after seeing this post of yours now I’m wondering again. Below is what my multi-vitamin contains. Is this helping the candida because of the B-vitamins? Do you think it is detrimental in any other way?
