I don't think so. Vitamins are more often than not hard to digest. Frankly, it is debatable just how much worth vitamins are. People swear by them but they really don't know how they would be without them so it is never easy to compare. For the digestive system I would say a big NO. Now Probiotics is another story.

Most vitamins pass thru us after we take them, we do absorb some of them, and if you are truly deficient or pregnant then you definately need them. I drink Haldi ( a health beverage) that helps with inflammation for my colitis, but have a very good friend who now drinks it for her IBS. She has had very good success with it, as she had been taking Bentyl with no success. I get them online at Haldi4health, or at whole foods markets, they might be worth a try for you.

I don't know if it works directly like that with bowel/digestive health, of course taking vitamin supplements for the ones you lack (find out via blood tests) are still a good idea...a good probiotic on the other hand is generally a very good aid for digestive health with replacing friendly bacteria into your gut flora which definitely would have a good impact on digestive health...using digestive enzymes which help break your food down, after each meal is another good aid for digestive health as it means less work on your intestines to break down/digest food.

Natural digestive enzymes are the best way to go if you can tolerate eating them (papaya, kiwi, mango, pineapples) after each meal you eat.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it! LOL :)
