    Angry Good Multi Vitamin??


    I'm needing a good multi-vitamin that's easy to take.
    I've tried *** ultra mega, ON Multi mega and many more. All suffer from the same problem. The darned pill is as big as a horse pill!!
    I can take 3 or 4 capsules at a time, even size 00, but those pills have some kind of coating on them that causes them to get stuck in my throat. Nothing like gagging on a vitamin! Even threw up a few of them.
    No amount of pre-wetting, swishing around in my mouth to wet the outer layer to make the slide better, helps.

    I need a good multi-vitamin that's either liquid or comes in capsules.

    Any suggestions??

    Armor V is a capsule, you take 6 pills for a serving, but I'm not sure how big the pills are. Maybe look into that? Is that what you meant Flex?

    Whatever the Now multi's in v (veggie) caps are called. I usually got the tabs but people keep saying the v caps are better.

    I've always used Adam, I switched to the caps after seeing Natty post about the tabs possibly not dissolving/digesting efficiently

    Twinlab one a day multi's are capsule form, I usually use them. I take extra of just about everything anyways like C and zinc and magnesium etc etc.....so a basic once per day capsule works for me.

    I figured SOMEONE would jump on that lol.....I put out all the pills....there are so many, then I pair them up in bunches I know I can slam down. usually like 3-4 big caps, or like 6-10 little caps/little pills....so I can do like 3 max swallows. I hate it when one of them gets kind of stuck halfway down and just sits there

    I've used Now Adam (the tabs, because they were cheaper), CL Orange Triad and am currently in month 3 or so of AST's Multi-Pro 32x.

    AST and Now are both nice for not having to take so many caps and they also last significantly longer. OT is so comprehensive, though, that it's very nice. I don't really have any joint issues, though (knock on wood), so I bounce around between multis.

    I use Whole Foods Brand multi-vitamin because it's not overly loaded with vitamins as most multis are. It's also small and easy to swallow.

    1st off, when swallowing tablets, capsules, etc., it's leagues easier to swallow them with a mouth full of water and your head tilted back. That technique will allow you to down 15 capsules/tablets/caplets in one swallow, with ease.

    Best liquid multi is by Douglas Labs. It's called Liquid Multivitamin by Douglas Labs. Easy enough. It's wicked high quality and supposed to be only sold to medical clinics. My MD told me about it. It isn't cheap, has a somewhat short shelf-life, but it's easy to take and you will definitely notice a difference.

    Google it, but a word of advice, be careful who you buy professional supps from. Anyone who sells for deep discounts is usually not a professional and has no business selling it. Buy from a doctor owned webstore (they usually advertise this) or a medical clinic's webstore. I've been burned more than once buying that stuff based on price from ugly websites with big discounts.

    I saw that.

    I did a price-comparison and ingredient-comparison between it, Adam and OT.

    OT won out. The only thing about the Anavite that was better was the LCLT (may have been one or two other things). I was going to just re-up on Adam, this time around, but with the sale price on OT, it ended up being maybe a dollar more each month and had the joint complex in it, so I just ended up buying a year's supply of OT, so I wouldn't have to make any random purchases just for that as a staple a few months down the road.

    Yeah OT has the joint complex, the thing I like most about the Anavige though is I get to experience the beta alanine tingles early in the morning lol. Probably not the best reason to buy it. But it was my staple multi for months on end until I bought a ton of OT for cheap. If it were to drop to 14 again I would blow a whole paycheck on it.
