My 12yo is actually taking quite a bit because she has a lousy diet and I'm not going to drive her into anorexia trying to force her to eat things that repulse her. I had the same picky eater problems she has, so I know it's not a control issue. She desperately WANTS to eat more things, but feels like she's going to throw up just looking at most foods.


She takes

two Xymogen Activ Nutrients ( http://www.xymogen.com/2008/formula.asp?code=000001 )

three Pure Encapsulations magnesium glycinate ( http://www.purecaps.com/itemdy00.asp?T1=MG3 )

one Vitafusion calcium gummy ( http://www.amazon.com/Vitafusion-Calcium-Vitamin-VItamins-Strawberry/dp/B002LG88GE )


Recently I've added an iron supplement on alternate days:

one Standard Process Ferrofood ( http://www.standardprocess.com/display/StandardProcessCatalog.spi?ID=74 )


She was taking just two magnesiums each day, but her anxiety attacks started up again, so I added a third.

Carlson's Fish Oil for teens

Now D3 - 2000 IU

Nature's Way Probiotics


Sometimes, if it's cold/flu season/traveling - Sambucol as well


We get our supplements from vitacost or amazon


Not to be rude or step on any toes, but I avoid Flintstones, and most stuff found in places like Costco, etc.

Brands I like/trust overall:


Nature’s Way

New Chapter Organics


Enzymatic Therapy


Source Naturals

Twin Labs

Anything with a short ingredient list - no soybean oil, no sugar, starches, colorings, etc. – the less things in it, the better

Last I checked, Flintstones had far too much junk in it. :confused:
