whats the general consensus on ON Opti-Men as a multi?
I hear about AP a lot, but this is the first I've heard of OT.
And I was just about to order a MV from NP .....

So I read your post DJ and don't see how pointing out that the old formula had an inferior form of Vit D makes the entire product a "cheap product"...unless by "cheap" you mean price and not quality...

say what's on your mind the first time around so we don't have to play the guessing game or harass it out of you, boy!

You're posts are rediculously vague...You point to that other thread as if all of the answers are there but all you really did was compliment them on switching to D3 and post a study....I've read a quite a few of your threads and you seem unable to post any of your own thoughts...all you ever do is regurgitate other people's writing.

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?

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*

"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.

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

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.

When in doubt, never trust hippies.

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.

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
