Hey able friend thanks for taking the time to answer all my questions 🙂
I am day 2 into my cleanse and not so bad. I got all my vitamins in the mail and see all these other junky ingredients that i’m assuming the shell is made out of including gelatin, rice flour, magnesium stearate, silica, glycerin, soybean oil, cellulose, silicon dioxide, stearic acid, crocscarmellose sodium, vegetable stearin, silicon dioxide. These are all the junk ingredients from the different pills put together. One has just gelatin added and another just olive oil, gelatin and glycerin. Do you think i should just crack them open and ingest the contents? Or ingest the entire pill shell and all and not worry about it?
Also do i have to wait to take the vitamins till the cleanse phase is over or can i start now? Is there any downfall to taking vitamins to early?
Thanks as always 🙂November 17, 2011 at 5:25 pm #67768
I would return the ones with rice flour and soybean oil or soy ingredients. The gelatin is typically the capsule and is a very small amount of a sugar like ingredient. Some vitamin brands don’t use gelatin also.
My top favorite brands:
Nature’s way (more widely available)
Solgar (the junkiest of the brands I am mentioning)

I don’t know that i can take those back… I ordered most everything online. I ordered from the vitamins recommended on youR and able’s protocol. Is throwing out the pill shell and just eating what’s inside a bad idea? If i decide to do that can i start taking the vitamins now or do i have to wait till the 2nd or 3rd week?
Thanks! 🙂November 18, 2011 at 6:55 am #67789

If you’ll send a link to each of your supplements that contain an ingredient that you are unsure of, we can take a look and answer your question.

If you take one bottle of vitamins with slightly bad ingredients, it won’t be the end of the world. The benefit probably outweighs any potential side effects. Next time around I would either go to the vitamin shoppe, new season’s, or order those brands I mentioned from other websites. I use google shopping to find the cheapest prices.

Well this is the summation of extra ingredients from the pills i bought. Gelatin, rice flour, magnesium stearate, silica, glycerin, soybean oil, cellulose, silicon dioxide, stearic acid, crocscarmellose sodium, vegetable stearin, silicon dioxide,fish liver oil, vegetable cellulose, titanium dioxide color, vegetable magnesium stearate.
legit it just has gelatin extra
plant cellulose and rice flour
gelatin, rice flour, magnesium stearate and silica
legit has olive oil, gelatin, glycerin and water.
molybdenum ( brand name is Carlson)
cellulose, stearic acid, magnesium stearate (veg). other ingredients may include croscarmellose sodium,vegetable stearin, silicon dioxide, rice flour.
Vitamin E ( brand name country life)
gelatin, glycerin, water, soybean oil.
Will any of these really feed the candida? Problem is i’ve already opened most of them, so i probably won’t have much luck taking them back. Not to mention that would be a hassle.
Thanks so much Able and Raster 🙂November 21, 2011 at 7:28 am #67976

Soldia, the only noticeable real problem I see with your list is the Flora Balance. From the information on the site, it appears that this only contains one strain of bacteria, bacillus laterosporus BOD. This is a bacterium which helps protect soil nutrients needed by plants to grow. There’s nothing wrong with taking this, but the problem is that so many other strains are missing. You can find a probiotic with as many as 14 strains of different bacteria, and the more strains you take, the better chance your intestines have of being able to fight the infestation.
These are the bacteria strains in MegaFlora, so the ingredients on the label should appear something like this:
Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 (the DDS-1 type is very important)
Lactobacillus sporogenes Bacillus lactis
As far as the ingredients in the other supplements are concerned; it’s going to be impossible to find that many supplements which contain no unwanted ingredients. You can assume that these are in very small amounts and that the benefits of taking vitamin supplements will outweigh the few negatives.

I agree about the flora balance; the soybean oil is the only bad one I saw and this isn’t the end of the world. I would just get a new vitamin A vitamin after you are done with it.
The rice flour that is found in most of the vitamins isn’t a high amount and wouldn’t worry about it; just get a better vitamin next time around without those ingredients.
The rest of the minor bad ingredients are not worth worrying about.
