Re: Vitamins as a cause of IBS symptons

Very interesting discovery...thanks for sharing this. I too, take a One-A-Day (the Women's Active formula) multivitamin...and have been for years. I also take a Vit C supplement (1000mg Ester-C) and Magnesium (Nature Made 250mg) with my Vit D and Calcium supplement. It never occurred to me, that my IBS symptoms could possibly be caused by the vitamins I've been taking. I was completely symptom-free nearly most of my life, until about midway through 2008...that is when ALL of symptoms (mainly gas, bloating, cramping, occasional diarrhea) began surfacing. But I've been using vitamins long before 2008, so I'm still not sure if I can pinpoint it to that.
