Vitamin Digestion

I'm noticing it hard to digest my vitamin. They're the One-A-Day everything vitamin. It's a green bottle. I took one two hours before a workout once and it really screwed up my workout. it felt like my body was trying so hard to digest it that it threw me off. Are there any vitamins out there that are easy to digest yet still provide the important nutrients? does anyone else have this problem. Also sometimes when I take it I get incredibly sleepy.

Re: Vitamin Digestion

I doubt that One-a-Day Vitamins can cause any problem with sleepiness or digestibility.

We've all had sleepy days and fatigued comes from being human!

I once bought the "chewable" Vitamin C...the big mixed citrus flavored jobs.
They were so delicious, I ate the whole bottle in two sittings.
Not a good idea, so I stopped picking them up from the $.99 bin.

I have the same problem with antacids but stop at 6 if I feel heartburn...but its HARD to top! I guess I need to buy them in "FEET FLAVORED" so that I take them as directed.
