Anyita, There are so many vitamin "supplements" on the market today today it is difficult to tell what the effects will be. Generally, a liquid vitamin natural supplement will be more beneficial to you than the store bought brand. The most common reason that you get gases is because of the "cellulase" enzyme deficiency. Improper food combining is another reason. Would you like to know more?

Irrelevant. None of them can cause gas.

There is no such deficiency. Cellulase is not a human enzyme.

There is no such thing as this either.

Probably not.

While the vitamins themselves should not directly alter gas I can think of one instance with me that they seemed to alter gas by what I believe was an indirect effect.Some things, like Iron, are not well absorbed by the body and do seem to (at least in me observationally) fertilize the bacteria responsible for bad odor of gas.If you are in some way altering the bacterial flora by supplementing them it could indirectly cause a change in volume or smell, assuming that what you are taking is altering the bacterial flora.But I take a bunch of vitamins and the only one that seems to ever do anything is the high-dose Iron supplements I needed to take (prescription, not what was in regular multi-vitamin formulas).K.
