I advocate the use of a multivitamin. I notice I feel better when I'm taking vitamin supplements as opposed to not. I haven't been sick for almost 10 years, aside from runny nose every once in a while; I think a big reason why is because i usually eat fairly healthy, I exercise and I take vitamin supplementation.
There are so many different nutrition studies out there and to just hear one more opinion from one expert isn't enough to keep me away from vitamin supplements. He doesn't cite any research, so it's basically just his word on paper.

The American Medical Association now recommends the use of a daily multivitamin. I would be careful as to which company's multi I take, since almost all are not certified organic and may contain concentrated levels of contamenants.

All I can say is that I don't need any studies to know I love Orange Triad hehe.
I used to have real bad gastritis, take omeoprazol everyday to mildly help it. Also had very sore neck, always in pain and would bother me a lot. I started taking Orange Triad's recommended dose and my stomach has been great lately and I no longer feel any neck pain.

Unless your diet is perfect you absolutely need a multivitamin + multimineral. Especially when you exercise. Also keep in mind the RDA for most vitamins is for couch potatoes.

Take the multi. I skipped on using one for close to a year then started back on them and felt an immediate difference in energy and overall sense of well being. Plus my pee was bright yellow again

Multivitamins are must especially if your working out/training for sports on a consistent basis. Right now I am bulking and take some supplements and working out 6 days a week, so I need a thorough multivitamin, I am taking Universal Animal PAK multivitamin and love it, gives my all kinds of energy and I've found it increases my endurance while training.

A mutivitamin is the base of any program. Most people do not get the nutrients they need in their diet. I don't miss a day taking my multi. I eat healthy but I know I don't get all the nutrients I need everyday in my diet.

See, that's the thing. I didn't know Jack about multi's so I just took One-A-Day Men's formula for years! I had presumed it was "better than nothing". I have heard nothing but raves about Orange Triad (with the exception of ppl complaining about price). IMO any multi is "pricey".

5ft9-10 and 180 was the average ht and wt of an average male in the USA,in 2008. unless its changed I dont know...and the average male had a little belly(not bad still there though)
Multis are for sure worth it IMHO.

Make sure it is clinically tested. I get lots of patients taking vitamins in my office and when blood work comes back nothing elevates or very little gets elevated. I.e centrium, costco, GNC, whole foods, vitamin shop.
