I’ve always been a big fan of multivitamins, but more than anything, I’ve been a big fan about antioxidant rich diet, or antioxidant supplement if the diet is not so rich. This video might sound a bit crazy, but multivitamins are important to take. In my opinion, one per day, even if your diet is good but nothing, nothing, nothing will ever, ever surpass the food that you eat.
Like Hippocrates said, “The food’s got to be your medicine”, so if you’re selecting good food on a daily basis, your need for a multivitamin will go down and down, unless your lifestyle’s crappy. If you’re a shift worker, you work crazy hours, you work long hours, many hours a week, you do a lot of overtime. If you’re a mum with a couple of kids at home, especially if you’re a single mum, if you’re a person taking care of a relation who may not be well, like a sick or elderly relation. The point I’m making is if you’ve got a lifestyle where stress is a factor, especially high stress, then a really good diet plus a couple of multivitamins per day is probably what you’re looking at, so it really depends on your lifestyle. But SIBO is a different kettle of fish.

What’s the best multivitamin for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth? Again, you cannot go past the diet. The diet should be the multivitamin. The icing on the cake is one or two multi tablets or capsules per day, is outstanding if you can put that on top of a very, very good diet. But if you’ve got a small bowel problem, please don’t think that you can pay lip service to your diet, and have a very average or crappy diet and then try and prop it up with good supplements, because it’s not the way to do it. You’ll never ever surpass a good diet. I’ve completed many videos on SIBO on this channel, so please go and have a look at the SIBO playlist.

Multivitamins come in many shapes and forms. You can get tablets, you can get capsules. Some people will say this brand’s great, this brand’s crap. It doesn’t really matter so much. If your diet is as good as mine, you don’t really have the need for a multi, but if, as I say, if your lifestyle is stressful, or you’ve got other conditions or problems, then a multivitamin is definitely a smart idea. I make a multivitamin, CanXida Rebuild. It’s not the one maybe that you want to take, but it’s got everything in it you need. It comes in a nice big bulky tablet, easy to crush up. I like it because you can even break it up with your fingers, just about, and you can mix it in with food and then food really becomes the medicine.
Make sure you have plenty of water too, for when you take multivitamins, and that you have water between meals. Supplements always work better in a hydrated body. Over the years I’ve noticed some patients just weren’t getting the result they were looking for with top quality products and they weren’t drinking enough, so make sure you do have water in your diet. Remember, beer or wine or coffee is not a substitute for water. The best multi for SIBO is your diet. But on top of that, please, if you’ve got a problem with your bowel, especially small or large bowel, take a multi per day, because you’ll pick up on the small trace elements that otherwise you may not really be getting in your diet. Trace elements that will help you to heal that gut condition faster rather than longer.
