    I would suggest ***'s sport multivitamin. They are timed release and you only take two a day.

    Another good option is opti-men from optimum nutrition. This one here is 3 a day.

    The reason most good multi-vitamins need so many pills is that multi-vitamins do not absorb particulary well so they contain vitamins are in excess (needing more pills) to potentially offset any lack of absorption. Also, Orange triad allows a split dosing which will assist in absorption as trying to dose that many vitamins at such high doses will most likely result in most just passing right through.

    Split dosages + high dosages = more pills. Its worth it.

    iForce Athletic Multi is a multivitamin that's incredibly cost effective and requires only two caps per day - and let me emphasize that, it's conveniently capped in gel capsules rather than the normal, huge horse-sized tabs.

    It's filled with great forms of vitamins and minerals as well as some extras like CoQ10 to help you stay healthy and in the weight room. You can combine it with any number of our Health Series products to suit your individual needs - Heart Help, Joint Help, Fish Oil, the options are almost endless.

    Yup, some days I'll only take 4 a day, split 2 x 2. Still gets the job done as far as keeping my joints healthy and my meals digesting, along with not catching colds

    I like Orange Triad. I have had shoulders injuries in the past, but my shoulders seem not to ache with Orange Triad even when doing millitary presses. I ran out for a few weeks and noticed more aching even while taking other joint support supps. I am now a believer in OT.

    I don't really mind taking the six pills for orange triad. It works and splitting the doses makes sense for absorption.

    context my friend
    you make good points, as to the concept "why can't we just make 1 pill dosing"

    however, the context "so many pills" is highly relative
    OP could be talking about animal-pak for all we know - a product that has long had many pills, but is actually quite horrible in it's construct

    and is the underlying reason for why it has been in existence for so long, and still remains a popular seller to this day

    however - has nothing to do with how poorly it is constructed, on many different levels

    but - again this is all relative, as we all may have differing opinions as to WHY we take a multivitamin in the first place

    I prefer taking bulk over pills, it has nothing to do with SNS selling bulk either. I purchase powders over caps, SNS or otherwise. I don't know why lol and if I do have to get capped I uncap them bitches.

    A multi vitamin in most working Americans would hold some merit. Ideally we'd like everyone to get all their nutrition from whole foods but remember man; Americans are getting more and more unhealthy by the generation. The average American isn't nutrition conscious like fitness and health enthusiasts.

    Even still, within the realm of fitness and health circles how many of them working 8-12 hours a day are actually ingesting their daily recommended intake? How many of us are students that more than likely don't have time to be cooking nutritious foods for every meal?

    Generation to generation the minerals are depleted from the soil resulting in less vitamin content in our fruits and veggies. While yes, I agree completely we should get our vitamins in our diet, how many people do you think really are?

    Animal Pak? Hahahah! Get out of BB scrub.. Here's my top 2 multi-vitamins

    1. FOOD
    2. FOOD

    Just kidding..

    1. AOR Ortho-Core or Multi-Basics 3 (Can't beat this even though expensive)
    2. LongeCity's Multi-Vitamin *Upcoming*
    3. Life-Force

    ^ best 3.

    Orange Triad is okay but when I want a vitamin/mineral I go for a good reliable company like Jarrows, AOR.

    Nothing wrong with O. T. just I rather go for a specific health brand company that supplies their line with all health-related products rather training supplements.

    I actually like CL because they do offer more health related products. Kind of like a hybrid health meets training. I like that approach

    Any other companies that you know of with a multi coming out man? I also use OT quite frequently but I'm liking this new trend of other companies getting in the multi game and giving us options.

    took the words out of my mouth. And the dosage on CoQ10 is solid. Plus the Macqui Super Berry is a great addition since it's the world's strongest antioxidant

    Iam going to chime in here:

    My top 3 are ...........








    Wait for it.............












    3. Gaspari Anavite <-----------Don't use any longer but thought it did it's job when I did use it, kinda liked the principal behind it


    2. Formutech Nutrition FIT Mens Multi <------------------------This is what I use now, and will continue to use, both cost effective and easy to take and does its job effectively.


    1. Orange Triad<---------------------Very good Multi, really liked it. Cost a little more and its 6 a day.



    I take a multi because there is no way I am taking in all the vitamins and minerals I should. I eat very basic and spend a lot of the year at a very very low BF%, one that can be considered unhealthy according to my doctor.

    Get well bud.

    Up your Zinc. Vit. D-3 <-- my immune is so strong and I barely get sick due to take D3, C, Zn

    AOR Ortho-Core is my favorite multi but then again if you eat a great diet then just throw in some CoQ-10 Ubiq. SAMe and I'm covered.



    but Now ADAM is the best!

    I take Adam, Zinc, and D3. I caught a cold last week but it only lasted for a few days and i was fine whereas everyone else is dealing with it for weeks if not more.
    Remember why you started.
