Brief Answer:
Yes, Multivitamins are essential now

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

I am medical doctor, an associate in Department of Gastroentrology, working with an experienced Nutritionist. I answer on his behalf.

Yes, I would consider it essential for you to consume multivitamin supplements as you are strict diet.

I would consider it safe for you to consume other vegetables and fruits as they do not aggravate gastritis. Also taking fiber supplements like Psyllium husk would help. It does come in brand named ISOBGOL. A spoon of this has to be taken with a glass of milk or water in the night.

Hope, I answered your query.
