I would like to take a multi vitamin...I always have in the past, but stopped because I was fearful of fish oil etc. My allergy is to shellfish only. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions on a multivitamin that is Allergy friendly?

Thanks!!
Jenni

I am also shellfish allergic and I do take multi vitamins. Find a place to buy where they know what is in the vitamin. I did not trust myself to read the label. I also take flax oil. I do stay away from the omega 3 oils.

I would be carefull of the source of calcium (many use oyster shells or variations) and also of omega-3 source (could be fish based). Many pharmacists can't really help you with the content... but maybe if you look in the health food stores. If the multi-vitamin is vegan (not just vegeterian) it should not have any fish in them.
