I'm trying to find a new multivitamin and just wondered what everyone takes.  I know about the nap products but they are real expensive since my husband and i both follow the btd.
so what brand do you use?

I've been taking Natural Factors MultiStart.  They have formulas for men and women and for women and men over 50.  I like these formulas because they have herbs and nutrients for menopause and prostate health, plus enough antioxidants, immune boosters, and calcium so there's no need to take extra.  They also have a prenatal formula.  There are no artificial colors or sweeteners or dairy.  So far I haven't felt any menopause symptoms; halleluiah!!

The womens formulas run $17 a month and the mens $15 a month.  I get mine at http://www.iherb.com.  

http://www.iherb.com/store/Search.aspx?c=Herbs&kw=multistart

pick one and it list all the nutrients and mg/mcg/iu, etc.

MegaFood brand vitamins are the ones I am using.  I like their Daily Food line because the vitamins are cultured in nutritional yeast so that the body recognizes them and digests them as whole food.  And the vitamin C is not from ascorbic acid, which is corn based as far as I know.  Check out One Daily and Complex C.

The MegaFood One Daily also looks good (though almost as pricey as NAP - but wait, 90 caps would be 3 months worth, so perhaps not). Thanks Victoria!

helloo Mandi, yuppers I must agree, Natural Factors are wunneful ;D I take the super multi plus
in each 25 mg's of B-complex and other goodies, for O's and some B's there are High Potency Multi's
and here are some 50 mg's of B-complex in,  for us...a bit too toughy ;) I guess....
have an eye on this: http://www.natvd.com  they are located in Canada and if you see the prices, your heart will jump ;D :D (dance)(clap)(smarty)(sunny) if you speak with Mr. Michael Lee, give him my kindest regards, a very nice man :D

I am more than unhappy that I am no more allowed to work with such products....:'( >:( :'( :( :X :-/...only Swiss products.... very ::) ;)

Natural Factors seem to use acsorbic acid in their vitamins.  Alas, it's too acidic for my system.

Victoria, whats' about the buffered Vit. C, ultimate Ester C or the normal Ester C ?? there's also Ara in :D

I used to really like Ester C, Isa, but then I heard that it is sourced from corn.  I haven't checked that out, since I found Complex C from MegaFood.  It is from acerola, rose hips, etc.

The only multivitamin I have taken in recent years is NAP's Polyvite A.  Presently, I'm trying to get my vitamins from as many whole food sources as possible.

A factor to consider is to invest in the NAP multivitamin supplement and take one capsule daily for both you and your husband.
