Halacha - vitamins
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: I would not recommend taking ANY vitamins without a hechsher. While there are some grounds to be lenient and consider a swallowed pill different than an food that is eaten, it is not advisable to rely on this opinion except for regarding important medications and not just for vitamins. Additionally today it is possible to find most vitamins with an acceptable hechsher and there is little necessity to rely on leniencies.
