Can anybody suggest a good multivitamin? The grocery store I go to only carries the one-a-day types, and we all know you can't get all the good stuff in one pill a day.

you can't get all the good stuff in one pill a day.why not?
any studies or links to info on why a one-a-day can't do the trick?

multivitamin is just to avoid deficiences from what you get from a good diet. there isn't anything magic about vitamins or minterals.

Exactly...which means a one-a-day pill is plenty.

I buy the "One a Day" brand, active lifestyle MV; I also take fish oil and b-150, the latter mostly because I've been breaking out lately and there is an acid in the b-150 (or b-100 or b-50) that might get my skin under control.

Cheap and with better ratios than the more expensive brand names.

For the difference it will make (next to nothing) save your money and buy generic one-a-days. Designer vitamins from your nutritional or supplement store cost up to 10X as much for very little difference.

Same with me. I'd hate to think I'm overly deficient in anything anyway, it's just better to be safe than sorry.

Dude just go and get a bottle of prenatal vitamins it has every single vitamin except iron but you can get them with iron. And no it doesnt have anything that will trun you into a girl look at the included vitamins i promise you won't find a better one. I take two centrum with lycopene and also a prenatal vitamin.
