There is something I have been trying to figure out.  Is a plant based mutivitamin good for people seeing as it would be made from foods that are good and not good based on blood type?  For example, the potasium in the vitamin might come from a dried banana, but I am an A, and banana's are not good for me.

I am asking because a multi vitamin/mineral called Juice Plus was recommended to me by an ND (so I could take that instead of separate vitamins) and it is tempting to try it, but I would need to sign up for it for a year and I am not sure if it is in line with eating for your blood type.

Any information is appreciated!

Plant/whole foods vitamins and whole foods powders are great and assimiable, but one has to check against each vitamin/nutrient to check where the food source is derived upon.

My concern is why you have to commit to taking something for a year?  Doesn't sound right to me.  You, as the consumer, should be able to try things and make your own decisions - good products don't need this type of committment to sell.

There are definately avoids in the mix, that is why I am not sure if they are a good idea or not with regards to blood type diet.  Does having avoids mean that they would not be goood?  The answer I got was that it would be such a small amount of each.  

As far as ordering for a year, great point!!!  I am not sure if it is just cheaper that way or is has to be that way.  Has anyone ever heard of Juice Plus?  They give a free year to a child over age 6 if a parent signs up and also answers a survey about the child's health.

Last, when you say to check where the food souce is derived upon, I am not sure what you mean (although I have not been able to confirm that is organic)?  

I will read more of the back posts here to see if I can find information about multivitamins and supplementation as right now I just take a few specific ones and that does not make sense to me (or is it that if I follow the diet, I do not need supplements??!)....

Thank you!

The difficulty with plant based multivitamins is that plants are typically good sources of  some vitamins, but terrible sources of others. Usually there is no problem with B vitamins,  but things like co enzyme Q and some of the amino acids are very difficult to derive directly from food. Companies that do it, like New Chapter, have always had trouble in this respect, and it has often come  back to haunt them in the form of assays that do not detect the levels in the product that are declared on the label.

My theory is to get the nutrient from its best source, all the while avoiding  allergens, GM stuff and what not.
