Supplements that are Salicylate FreePosted by lowchem on Wednesday, 8 December 2010
People with a salicylate intolerance can have trouble tolerating any supplements that are plant based particularly if the intolerance is moderate to severe. In these cases it is best to avoid bioflavonoids (including rutin, hesperidin and quercetin), herbal remedies and whole food supplements such as, kelp, chlorella, spirulina, wheat grass and barley grass until the salicylate intolerance has been lowered.
As a general rule the following supplements are more suitable for people with a salicylate intolerance, however they should be assessed carefully for suitability on an individual basis.
Vitamin C (without bioflavonoids),
B Vitamins - Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Pantothenic Acid,
Essetiale Fort (phosphatidylcholine & B vitamins)
Zeolites and charcoal can help bind and remove toxins and are generally well tolerated.
There may be more! speak to your natural healthcare provider and /or your Environmental and Nutritionally trained doctor
