However, you could do something like I do, and use an antioxidant like VitaBerry and then just supplement with Vitamin C.

vitalizer is the only one in a long term study that was positive with blood work.
Only line I know that has there vitamins tested long term.
Dietary supplement use in the United States is prevalent and represents an important source of nutrition. However, little is known about individuals who routinely consume multiple dietary supplements. This study describes the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of long-term multiple dietary supplement users, and where possible makes comparisons to non-users and multivitamin/mineral supplement users.
Using a cross-sectional study design, information was obtained by online questionnaires and physical examination (fasting blood, blood pressure, body weight) from a convenience sample of long-term users of multiple dietary supplements manufactured by Shaklee Corporation (Multiple Supp users, n=278). Data for non-users (No Supp users, n=602) and multivitamin/mineral supplement users (Single Supp users, n=176) were obtained from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2001-2002 and NHANES III 1988-1994. Logistic regression methods were used to estimate odds ratios with 95% confidence intervals.
Dietary supplements consumed on a daily basis by more than 50% of Multiple Supp users included a multivitamin/mineral, B-complex, vitamin C, carotenoids, vitamin E, calcium with vitamin D, omega-3 fatty acids, flavonoids, lecithin, alfalfa, coenzyme Q10 with resveratrol, glucosamine, and a herbal immune supplement. The majority of women also consumed gamma linolenic acid and a probiotic supplement, whereas men also consumed zinc, garlic, saw palmetto, and a soy protein supplement. Serum nutrient concentrations generally increased with increasing dietary supplement use. After adjustment for age, gender, income, education and body mass index, greater degree of supplement use was associated with more favorable concentrations of serum homocysteine, C-reactive protein, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, and triglycerides, as well as lower risk of prevalent elevated blood pressure and diabetes.
This group of long-term multiple dietary supplement users consumed a broad array of vitamin/mineral, herbal, and condition-specific dietary supplements on a daily basis. They were more likely to have optimal concentrations of chronic disease-related biomarkers, and less likely to have suboptimal blood nutrient concentrations, elevated blood pressure, and diabetes compared to non-users and multivitamin/mineral users. These findings should be confirmed by studying the dietary supplement usage patterns, health, and nutritional status of other groups of heavy users of dietary supplements.

It is not about a lable but what the study showed. Now, one a day and omega non which have been studied long term are pointless. That is why I personally will not use them. I want to know that I am getting something that long term will actually help me retain health blood bio markers such as crp, HDL, LDL etc. Something the Vitalizer does. Why keep feeding companys that don't study there multiple?
Just did a youtube search and found this. Looks like a better option than even the vitamin packs such as animal, nano pack or the USANA am pm pack as an example.

I use ON's Opti Men personally... Though in the past I have used Animal Pak and loved it. Only downside to Animal Pak is the $$.
I will say this though...
No multi-vitamin is going to replace a good diet...

Definitely going to need Vitamin D, K and E. Vitamin D is good with CVS brand, K is a bit harder to find and a natural vitamin E supplement can be found in Toco-8.
For general phytonutrients and veggie/fruit health, try some vitaberry.
Can't go without leaving a shout out for Zinc and Magnesium. Bro... Zinc is going to help you out a lot with sickness. Magnesium as well, I think ZMA would work for you especially for illness prevention/fighting.
