I've never done a whole lot of research on this but I've always been told that Multi Vitamins that you get from a normal grocery store are really processed and most of the 'nutrients' just passes right through you. Several friends of mine have also said that can't go back to the Costco brand after they tried my MV. Cause it makes them sick. I've always opted for a company that specializes in vitamins, like USANA, Herbalife or ummm Amway had a really great MV as well. I personally use USANA.

"Lives of great men all remind us
We can make our lives sublime,
And, departing, leave behind us
Footprints on the sand of time;

Footprints, that perhaps another,
Sailing o'er life's solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.

Let us then be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Thanks for the info Yogagirl. I will see if I can find that brand of vitamins.
Right now I take One a day essential. It includes just the basic vitamins. I take it just to make sure my bases are covered after the nutrition I get from eating. I feel we overdo the vitamin thing taking more than our body really needs.

I use a brand called Rainbow Light. It's a vegetarian formula and is a whole food vitamin. This means that the vitamins and minerals come from food and not for a chemistry lab so the nutrients are supposed to be absorbed into the body better. And you can take them with or without food. With my conventional vitamins I used to take, I would get sick at my stomach if I didn't take them with food.

Do you know anything about Shackley products? I met a new friend at the swimming pool who is selling them.

I get mine from Central Market/HEB, but they are a South Texas grocery store.

You will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life.

I was taking a closer look at my multivitamin and it looks like I'm ingesting as many artificial colors as vitamins. Any "whole" multivitamin recommendations?
