ie while fasting. i'm slightly anemic as well as concerned with nutrition so i'd really like to keep taking these daily even while fasting.. but they kill my (and a lot of peoples') stomachs. wondering about any tips/tricks/hacks to softening the blow or no/almost no calorie things to take with it?  

 

ty in advance!

I've started taking a different multi, Deva vegan multivitamins. They say to take them with food, but I take them while fasting and they don't seem to mess with my stomach at all. Plus they're one a day, which is awesome. You could also try drinking mint tea after taking them, it fixes my stomach every time I need it to.
