Multivitamins. Worth it?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I post studies, so yes its not my words but a published study. If you have a problem with published studies complain to the medical community for doing the studies. So you acknowledge there old formula was not good then?


  2. The only thing I acknowledge is your lack of basic communication skills.

  3. updating a product to meet higher standards at no extra cost to the consumer = a good thing, just in case some of us missed it.. *cough*

    great changes

  4. "All the same, the results of the studies on vitamins so far point to one conclusion: Healthy people who eat enough calories from a varied diet do not benefit from multivitamin supplements."


    lol that is who in America? Or in this world for that matter? Its like yeah, obviously someone who gets all the nutrients they require from what they are eating, doesn't need a multi! A great study devoted to stating the obvious. A multi isn't going to save anyone from a heart attack or stroke, who eats unhealthy the rest of the time either and with the diets of the average American/Canadian, Its like pissing on a housefire. Combined with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, I believe a multi fills in the gaps nicely though, for overall health.

  5. Ok so if there are any is there a quality liquid multi? I just get tired of gagging down horse pills all the time.

    The problem with a lot of multivitamins is twofold (from what I have heard): 1) they are ultracompacted and thus never fully are digested and 2) they have fillers such as Ca that lead to poor absorption.

    This could have been the issue with the above study btw...

  7. And, btw, that's not the only study that has found no benefit from multivitamins. Researchers know that low levels of many vitamins causes health issues but the studies (generally speaking) just haven't shown any benefit.

  8. My buddy hooked me up with a box of Lifepak Nano vitamins.....good stuff but who wants to pay $140 for a month's supply...geesh.

    I havn't researched the second part of your post, as for the first, I was told this by a wannabe new age health guru...I went home put 3 different multis in 3 different glasses of water (Mine and my two roomates at the time lol).I went out for dinner and came back roughly 2-2.5 hours later. They were piles of mush in a glass. He said actually, that they NEVER dissolved in our stomachs. I showed him the glasses and asked if he knew how strong the acid in our stomachs is? He never mentioned it again.
    When in doubt, never trust hippies.

  10. a good multivitamin is an essential, even when consuming a great diet. unless you are eating a boatload of local/homegrown organic veggies, grassfed beef, etc., modern agricultural practices have greatly reduced the amount of nutrients in our food.

    only problem with multis is that most of them SUCK. probably the best (i.e. contains the nutrients it says it does, uses bioavailable forms of said vitamins) multi that is widely available would be source naturals "life force".

    i would sign up for the following guide, very solid research. scientific ratings of over 500 multivitamins.

  11. There is no doubt that this company produces high quality vitamins. The big question that we all face is whether the supplement that we are buying is really what it says it is or does. Read their about us page including their plant policy and you tell me if you would by their vitamins and supplements. Now thats quality.http://www.purecaps.com/aboutus.asp
