i am trying to find out what the "best" brand of vitamins is for my son. I was told firstly that one should only buy whole food based vits, not chemically made vits. Second, i was told Kirkman is the best for quality and absorbability. I searched vitamins on here and found native remedies and neuroscience discussed. Does anyone have an opinion or advice as the to the best vits? i want to try a new regimen for my son but i want to buy the best i can with the best combinations, for instance i want to try a B6 and zinc regimen, but i dont know what else should or should not accompany those vitamins. thank you.

I just look for vitamins that have no fillers. I give my son a capsule that is for kids b/c I don't like chewables as I think they're bad for their teeth. I have been giving him Thorne Research children's vitamins but I know other folks just use brands you can find at your local health food store. I think it's just important that there are no fillers or crud in them. That's why I stick with capsules b/c I know they won't have any sweeteners, etc. I do give my son a greens drink from Amazing Grass and I use it to mix his amino acids in it. I figure the whole foods he gets in there along with his multi should be plenty! Hope this helps!

thank you both very much.

 

yes i always do buy all natural vits, no fillers, gluten, corn, etc, and i buy caps as well. i went to the nature sunshine web site, interesting! i want to research a little more because i want to take him off everything he is on and start fresh because since we have been doing vits/supps (about a year now) i see no difference like some of you here describe such a difference. Im not sure then if its dosage, brand, combining wrong or what could be the issue other than that he just doesnt need any vits or supps. So i really want to find the best i can for trying this all again. we do not have any kind of doctor right now that tests for vitamin defiencies or minerals, etc, so im just experimenting. thanks for your advice!

Airbucket,

 

Hi, my son has been using Bonnie Vits now for a month. It has really helped him to be more calm and it has helped to reduce his tics. I'm still trying to help his eye tics but I'm thankful his tics have decreased. Just thought maybe it's something to look into. Trying to find the right supplements for my son has been very frustrating, but I'm very happy with the results I'm seeing. Gook Luck and take care!!! :mellow:
