Desert Harvest Low Acid Multivitamin (90 Capsules)
A high quality multivitamin is the cornerstone of any good supplement regime, yet for those with interstitial cystitis or sensitive digestion, finding one that can be tolerated is often difficult. Desert Harvest has come to the rescue with this low acid multivitamin supplement that provides a broad range of vitamins and minerals in quantities large enough to actually have an impact. Suitable for interstitial cystitis, and free from ascorbic acid and vitamin B6, each ingredient is present in a gentle, bioavailable form. Organic aloe vera powder is also added for your bladder health.
Other key advantages of Desert Harvest Multi-Vitamin are:
- L-methylfolate is used instead of folic acid for easier digestion and absorption. This is thought to be the superior type for people with a MTHFR gene mutation to use, as they are less able to methylate other forms of folate.
- Methylcobalamin is used instead of cyancobalamin – the former is naturally occurring and retained better by the body. Anecdotally, it too is the better form for people with a MTHFR gene mutation to use, as they are less able to convert cyancobalamin into usable methylcobalamin.
- Calcium glycerophosphate (the active ingredient in Prelief) removes up to 95% of the acid in food and drinks, without lowering the stomach acid necessary for proper digestion of meals.

Tiny says: I was so excited when I heard that Desert Harvest was bringing out a multivitamin, as I know it can be an absolute nightmare trying to find a supplement that contains no ascorbic acid AND no vitamin B6 (or the P5P form of B6) AND the methyl forms of folate and vitamin B12! This is a nice baseline supplement and I like that it is free from copper and contains good amounts of zinc. It also packs an impressive punch of vitamins A and E, as well as magnesium. For those of you with special nutrient requirements, you will probably need to bolt other bits and pieces onto this multivitamin, but the same can be said of every brand one way or another and this Desert Harvest formula creates a lovely foundation on which to build your own bespoke regime. No more worries about finding a multivitamin that won’t upset your bladder – hurrah!
