My 4 year old son has a pretty bad case of candida overgrowth, he’s had in since he was born when I started taking antibiotics while I was nursing. We’re slowly overcoming and reversing this with diet, herbs, and probiotics. I was wondering if anyone knows of a good multivitamin supplement, or other supplements for children (needs to be chewable or liquid) that are very low in sugar and are safe to be taken when trying to overcome a candida problem. Any favorite brands? Thanks for your help!June 5, 2013 at 11:11 pm #105760

Any vitamin such as A, D, and E which should be in gel cap form can be removed from the gel cap. Simply punch a tiny hole in the gel cap and squeeze the ‘oil-like’ substance from the cap. You can then rub the oil into the child’s skin. This will be absorbed into his bloodstream as well as if not better than taking it by mouth. He should definitely take some type of vitamin C. He can take about 8 mg per pound of weight. For example, if he weighs 50 pounds, he could take 400 mg an hour up to 8 hours a day.
I wouldn’t give him any type of multiply vitamin because of the huge imbalance in the amounts of the eight B vitamins. When you see one specific vitamin containing only 50% of the minimum daily requirement and another with over 500% this causes the body to become out of ratio with the natural amounts. As far as the B vitamin supply is concerned, if you give him probiotics and kefir every day he’ll receive enough.
