Other than water this is the absolute most important item to have in your diet. Do not use generics such as store brands, Centrum or One-A-Day merely because of the binders in them. They have been proven not to dissolve or absorb at all in your system. The only reason they are able to be manufactured then sold is because the FDA does not regulate supplements. One of the brands I would recommend which is very cost effective as well is Source Natural’s Life Force Multivitamin w/o iron for men and with iron for females. (females who are post menopause should also use the w/o iron version). Take one directly after the first food meal of the day and then again around lunch time. You may notice from the very first couple days of taking it that you will have much more energy, but most people achieve the full potential in about 30-45 days.
I also stand by the Standard Process Brand. Their items are whole food based. They are free of all binders and are 100% non-synthetic. I currently use these myself.
After working for GNC for about 3 years I will NEVER touch one of their multis to my tongue. The type of binders and cheap ingredients they use is issue in itself.
Do your best NOT to intake synthetic vitamins like the once a days, GNC binder types, etc. Here are a few examples of synthetic vitamins’ possible harmful effects:
1) Synthetic vitamin C can thicken artery walls.
2) Synthetic vitamin A may increase the rate of cancer.
3) Synthetic vitamin E actually extracts vitamins and minerals form your bones.
