What kind of Multi-vitamins are you guys taking? Everyone swears by Animal Pak. I mean...come on...don't we take enough pills as it is?? I recently picked up a product called Vit-Acell from Max Muscle. It is in liquid form,so it is faster absorbing. It gets me going! I know alot off people one here have mentioned that they lack energy due to the illness,but this stuff really gets me through the day. You feel it fast!

I take Forvia. It's created for people with UC or Crohn's. Absorbs quickly and contains more of the stuff we need.
