I've heard that the Walgreens/CVS brands are just fine. If you don't choose those, at least select a brand you have heard of before. It does make a difference.

I just use the generic version of Flintstones vitamins. Not flashy, but relatively inexpensive and chewable, and seem to stack up fairly well numbers-wise with the pricier adult versions. I hate swallowing pills, so these chewables are great. I definitely feel better later in the day when I've taken then versus when I haven't.

I just go to Costco. I get a 55 gallon drum of pills for $8-$9.

back in the days I used Universal Nutrition's Animal Pak they come in a box and are individually packed... it brings 44 packs and should last you a little over a month... taking one pak a day...

but I recently picked up Costco brand Kirkland Multi Vitamin Pack it brings 100 packs for 13 dollars with a coupon from Costco :biggrin:

and I must say I really like it.... :thumbup1::thumbup1::thumbup1:

One A Day Men's formula. :thumbup1:

Avoid formulas with iron, unless you have a condition that requires you to take some

Avoid GNC type formulas; overloaded, wasteful

Centrum A to Zinc

I don't know if they help, but I take one daily.

The Mayo Clinic has not told me to take a different one, so I guess this one is ok.

Talking about these http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11313814&whse=BC&Ne=4000000&eCat=BC|589|770|869&N=4001278&Mo=36&pos=3&No=2&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=869&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&lang=en-US&Sp=C&ec=BC-EC24936-Cat770&topnav=

The price went up, but still a deal for 500 tablets. I have been using them for years. My nutritionist said they were great.

Costco Adult 50+ Mature Multi(compare to Centrum Silver). They're the size of horse pills but the price is right and they seem to be good quality.

Good suggestion.

From my research it doesn't help or hurt to take a Multi-Vitamin. So to be on the safe side I take "one a day". Good point about iron. Men generally have to much iron in their blood.

As for other supplements, fish oil. The research is overwhelmingly in support of the benefits of fish oil.

One a day mens + fish oil. If you get fish oil that makes your breath smell like trout after you burp go with a different brand.

Solgar has a selection of Multis. Do a bit of research on their website and you will figure out which best suits your needs.

For non-therapeutic uses, most docs suggest Centrum. They are considered good and cheap.

A good brand that generally won't make you burp up a fishy taste is Ultimate Omega by Nordic Naturals

You could check out Life Extension (www.lef.org). They have a very extensive array of vitamins, minerals, and supplements. I believe you can purchase without being a member. Membership is pricey, but you get discounted pricing on everything. I believe you can also get your prescriptions filled through them at a discount, but you may need to be a member.

I'm not here to plug them. I'm merely providing information as to where you can get all natural vitamins.

Picking a vitamin depends on your lifestyle,

If you are not active you should be okay with one-a-day or other durgstore availiable multi

If you are an active person then you should look into a better vitamin, I like the Optimen by optimum nutrition, it is not that expensive and works well for me

If you are a serious athlete then you shold look into something like the Animal Pak by Universal Nutrition

So this is a little off topic but does anyone know what is in some vitamins that makes...um, no good way to put this....makes urine look like it could glow in the dark?
Some do this and some don't...always wanted to know why.

TMI here, but I use GNC's Mega Man and Fish Oil vitamins. I enjoy the results, but my first pee after using them is a bright neon color. I guess that's where the wastefulness comes in:redface:

Maybe it's time for a new vitamin, but other than the pee, I've had no complaints. My joints feel better after a workout, and I have more energy during the day.

I think, but am by no means sure, that it's ones that have really large amounts of B vitamins.

How about fresh fruit and vegetables? Add some oily fish and pulses and you can't really go wrong. Tastes good too!! :lol:

I can't eat that much fruit everyday:001_smile It would also cost a fortune if I did.

There are other Centrum vitamins, too.

Centrum Chewables for me. At least 1 a day, additional doses as needed when I need a boost.

http://www.centrum.com/product_detail.aspx?productid=CENTRUM&panel=chewables

The most important consideration for me is that they are chewable. I can't swallow a vitamin whole, and other brands that are more potent and/or economical taste raunchy when I bite into them.

Hey Everybody,

Just my two cents -- with multiple's you end up getting what you paid for; and for the most it is just part personal prefence. With cheaper vitamins people argue that the companys use substandard ingredients; however, the more expensive brands claim to lean to more easy absorbing ingredients. Also consideration should go into what your diet ecompasses, and your activity level.

Personally I stick with Vitamins Shoppes, http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=VS-2303
Ultimate Man; and supplement with a few other items for personal needs. (ie: joint, protein). It seems to do the trick and isn't expensive.

Anyhow, hope this helps!

I've been taking these: http://www.vitacost.com/Natures-Way-Alive-Multivitamin-Whole-Food-Energizer-No-Iron-Added-180-Tablets and pretty much like them. It says on the lable to take three pills, but two seem to work for me. They are rather large to get down, though.

I'm currently trying these: http://www.vitacost.com/MegaFood-DailyFoods-trade-Iron-Free-One-Daily-90-Tablets which you only need to take one a day.

Vitacost is a godsend.
