What is the best multi-vitamin?
So i currently almost done with my first bottle of Orange Triads and I guess I'm not that impressed. I don't know exactly what I was expecting...but yea..not feeling them. Specially at $32 for 45 days....
What do you recommend and why? I was looking at ADAM and Opti-Men.......would stay with Orange Triads if there was a legit reason too.....
Throw the info out there..I need to buy something here in about 10 days....

I would look into Optimum Foods Whole food multi-vitamin. It is a complete multi loaded with anti-oxidants, and the best part is EVERY ingredient comes directly from a whole food source. A slightly cheaper option would be Garden of life's MENs daily vitamin. It is the identical formula to Optimum Food's whole food multi (they bought the license to the formula from OF when OF came out with a new formula.) Outside of that, most vitamins, especially the cheap ones, are just chemically derived nutrients that are not as effective as whole food sources.

Honestly I get it from a local vitamin store. I'd check local retailers, private retailers are your best bet, i.e. not "GNC" or "The Vitamin Shoppe".

I use ADAM. But it recently tested at like 3x the max daily recommendation for selenium. Not 3x RDA, 3x max you can take into your body in a day!

Orange Triad. Great multi, plus joint support, immune support, and digestion enzymes, all in 1 bottle.

High blood levels of selenium (greater than 100 μg/dL) can result in a condition called selenosis . Symptoms of selenosis include gastrointestinal upsets, hair loss, white blotchy nails, garlic breath odor, fatigue, irritability, and mild nerve damage .
Selenium toxicity is rare in the U.S. The few reported cases have been associated with industrial accidents and a manufacturing error that led to an excessively high dose of selenium in a supplement [64,65]. The Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences has set a tolerable upper intake level (UL) for selenium at 400 micrograms per day for adults to prevent the risk of developing selenosis . Table 4 lists ULs for selenium, in micrograms per day, for infants, children, and adults.

I went and looked up the testing though, and I was wrong it had to much folic acid not selenium. 2,070 mcg of Folic Acid to be specific. Upper Limit is 1000. All that really means is there could be some affect on the absorption of b12 and if you were deficient in b12 it would mask the symptoms and it may not be diagnosed. Now that I've looked into it more I'm less concerned, the upper limit is where it's at mostly to avoid the masking of b12 deficiency the b12 absorption issues are really just theories I think.
BTW Spell check is telling me Folic is wrong and suggests correcting it to Fellatio... :/

I use a basic multivitamin such as One A Days and then add some individual vitamins throughout the day.
