Extra Easy Do Multi Vitamins have syns?

Can anybody help? Just wondering if multi vitamins have syns? I have had a cold on and off for the last 3 weeks and I though eating all the fruit and veg that I do might get rid of it, or at least keep it at bay. Just thought about taking multi vits as I used to years ago before I started slimming world , but know that cod liver oil tabs a 2 syns each. x

No multi vitamins dont have syns so far as i know. I take a multi vitamin, vit c, vit d, vit b complex, magnesium and zinc, glucosimine sulphate, odourless garlic and omega 3. i dont even syn the omega 3 one to be honest i never knew about that and ive taken them all the way through my weightloss.

On advice from my Chiropractor, I started taking Glucosamine, Chondroitin & Omega 3 Cod Liver Oil & I must admit it did cross my mind if there were any syns in them! However, I would rather have to syn them if necessary than not take them.
I have just popped one of the Cod Liver Oil capsules & measured it lol! & it measured approx 1/4 tsp, so that equals 1/2 Syn!
I had a look at the list ingredients of all the tablets & there is no mention of calories, but I may investigate further as have a bee in my bonnet now & curious. I think even if they did, personally Im not going to syn them unless they were particularly high & Im sure SW would advocate your health first.
If I find out I'll post back, but some brands may have different ingredients, but at least it will give a broad idea to whats in them.

Im seeing 15 calories for 1 serving on some of the products, but it would be dependant on the size of the 'serving'. Im taking H & B's & they are:

Maybe its got something to do with the actual capsule containing syns, but the caps I take only contain 1/4 tsp of oil.

Basic, Cod liver oil, 1 level tsp 2 2 2

From SW site - so Kim your 1/4 tsp would be right for 1/2 syn!
