    I was wondering why multivitamins are not recommended on the protocol. And also, why is anything that contains soy in it bad for the candida diet?

    Almost all soy is genetically modified and most multivitamins contain soy, fillers, maltodextrin, etc

    Soy is high in phytoestrogens which have been known to cause hormone imbalances. It’s also a bean and beans are not allowed. There are a lot of vitamins and supplements on the protocol.

    Soy is inflammatory which is not good if you have leaky gut. A goal for everyone should be to reduce the inflammation of the gut and not make it worse.

    Since it is genetically modified and you cannot get organic soy easily, this will create an immune response within the body where the body see’s it as a foreign invader. This creates a response from the body to fight it off.

    The problem with multivitamins is that there is no multivitamin that is 100% DV for everything you need; most of them have specific vitamins at higher or lower levels which can lead to an imbalance. For instance, most candida sufferers are deficient in biotin, but is your multivitamin 100% DV in biotin? What about the trace minerals you need while on the diet as well? Its best to get each vitamin separately so you can control the doseage.

    Thanks for the replies, guys. Yeah I’ve used many multivitamins, and I’m so picky with them too. Now it seems like I can’t use the ones I have used in the past since they have all these fruits and stuff in them.

    So what about vitamin E? Doesn’t it have a natural amount of soy in it already? It seems impossible to find one that doesn’t have soy in it.

    I would look at solgar, thorne, etc. I wouldn’t really be worried about the soybean oil, just the soy itself…

    I actually found it a lot cheaper to buy the individual vitamins instead of the multivitamin. My multivitamin was not cheap.
