Jbry may be a little off with the water kinetics, but his point is valid. I work in a pharmaceutical lab with equipment that is collectively worth more than entire supplement companies, and in designing various dosage forms, MANY tablets of mutlvitamin-size fail to dissociate in a kinetically favorable manner. Meaning they break down ultimately, but the window of absorption is small. When you consider the sheer number of different compounds in a multivitamin, you really want a powder, softgel, or capsule.
That said, I have used and it's got a good profile.

I don't like a lot of these "kitchen sink" vitamins because your waisting space and money due to what other posters have said, underdosing. Orange Triad is great as mentioned. I like OptiMEN by optimum and I like both of Beverly's multi's, their superpak and their Ultra 4. Just add the other stuff in with BCAA products and digestive enzymes and healthy fats.

Don't over think it. You don't know exactly what your body needs at every moment. I take a simple prenatal vitamin, all it is, is a multi that has more than usual cause its prenatal. Women need more for their babys, you need more for your growing muscles. It works for me so its up to you.

WHAT! YOU MEAN TO TELL ME MY WATER IDEA IS SOMEHOW DIFFERENT THAN THE DIGESTIVE PROCESS? NOOOOOOOOOO!Originally Posted by mr.cooper69
But I thank you for the explanation. Man I'm getting lazy, though might also be cause I'm using my phone 90% of my post.
But I haven't taken a look at orange triad.
Used samples of anavite though

aside from it not being in split up dosages (am/pm), there are specific vitamins an minerals that I want more of in the morning, and others more of at night.

I've been using Source Naturals, Life Force Multiple,
On Mr. Cooper's recommendation in another thread, and I think it's a fantastic Multivitamin.

never tried OT, but hell you can take a wal-mart brand multi and it's still better than taking no multi

I've been using Orange Triad for a period of 3 months. Can't say i notice any difference from other Multis. But I am a bit skeptical over tablets, I prefer capsules or gelcaps usually. I don't mind trying new products, but I usually always go back to the capsules or gelcaps.

Interesting topic. I mix it up. Kind of rotate Life Force, Alive liquid and Orange Triad. I do think the OT helps with my old arse crickity joints. After 6 separate knee surgeries, hip surger, shoulder surgery and rotator cuff slight tear in non operated on shoulder, joint relief is much appreciated . . . as is Dr. James Andrews.
I alway waste the liquid as after has been open a few days, it does not seem as fresh so I don't drink. Why is Triad in tablet if absorption is such an issue or does it really make that much if a difference?

Its funny, I have read varying studies on capsules v. tablets, and I think both maintain merit. However, one of the reasons I support tablets (without backing away from capsules, btw) is that certain vitamins are not there to be absorbed in he stomach, as it would be preferential for it to be absorbed in the small intestine. In capsule form, there is a distinct chance that it will be only available in the stomach, not optimal imo.As I mentioned, I have tried varying multis, and like a few. But, OT is the best I have tried. My joints feel better, I get sick far less frequently, and when I go to the bathroom and night, I dont need a light with my neon urine

Another Orange Triad vote. Joints feel better, immune system seems to be boosted, and digestion is greatly improved.
