Our expert says:
These supplements do not have side-effects, except for sometimes constipation from a high intake of iron. Iron toxicity should be watched, especially in children, but I am sure you doctor would have made sure that your intake is suitably in line.
It is best if you can take vitamins in the chelated form – a bit more expensive, harder to come by, but you can reduce the intake dose as the absorption is increased.
B-vitamins are water soluble and therefore will easily wash out of the body if not absorbed. Therefore it is best to take it in 3 divided dosages per day.
Iron absorption is negatively affected by phytates which you will find in black tea, spinach and unleavened whole wheat.
Additionally I recommend that you ingest about 3000 – 4000 mg of Omega 3 (salmon) oil. It helps to reduce inflammation and forms a vital part of the nervous system which will obviously aid in your recuperation.
