Multi's are good stuff. Truth be told, I'm not too convinced there is a huge difference between the cheap and expensive multi's. Sure, your more expensive multi's are probably going to have more bioavailable forms of vitamins, but multi's are overdosed anyways. You'll never get 100% absorption with a multi, if your body doesn't need it its going to be excreted and different nutrients/minerals need different environments to be optimally absorbed anyways.
But i'd still get a multi, even if its a cheap one. Diet wise, multivitamins are an insurance policy. It'll fill in the cracks, so to speak, because (outside of health conditions that will effect absorption) your body will be able to get what your diet is not optimally providing.

ive been using Russian Bear Multivitamins.
these got alot of different stuff in it like some herbs and anabolic activators as well as antioxidants.
but ya you can just buy some reg vitamins at you local drug store and take twice a day (1 with breakfast 1 with dinner) and youll be good. i also believe that vitamins are vitamins why pay more for the same stuff. o yah thats right the package does look cooler.

Vitamins are Vitamins. Also sure, they might have a bit more of certain vitamins then are needed. However, you can't deny that the nutritional needs of an athlete are higher then that provided by your average daily. I am more then happy with my Orange Triad, and can't really image a reason in which I would switch from them.

If your diet sux then multi's are important. If your diet is excellent then not so much.
Costco multi ftw...

Hell's Yeaah! I am repping the now ADAM Multi vitamins from nutraplanet...
Like $10 for 1 months supply you cant go wrong with that....
There have been times though when my diet was focused around the dollar store and I couldn't even afford vitamins, like several months straight , (being self employed can be very tough) but for the most part if I have the money I wont skip them not even for a day....
I like to think of them more of peace of mind and insurance rather than necessary. I would much rather spend the $10 a month than get sick and lose 3 weeks worth of gains (or more, getting pneumonia is not bueno...)

For me, the action IS the juice.

I used to think that a MV was extremely important. Now, not so much. If your diet is focused around whole foods with minimal processing, your body will get more than enough vitamins and minerals.
For the bodybuilder crowd, however, that seem to avoid fruit and rarely consume veggies: get tested to find out what vitamins you're actually lacking. I think supplementing with individual vitamins is much better than a one size fits all multi.
