Looking for Multivitamin recommendation


My favorite multi vit has been discontinued so i am asking you guys what you likeThanks


What No one here uses Multi vits ?I lookied over the progressive Multi and found that is does not have  two really important ingredients for methylationMethyl Cobalamin B12Folate  MTHFR

We  use Centrum Silver every day in addition to all the other supplements.  My doctor says I am his miracle.Rica

3/9 Symptoms returning. Began 5 abx protocol 5/9 Rifampin 600, Amox 1000, Doxy 200, MWF Azith 250, flagyl 1000 daily. Began Sept 04 PPMS EDSS 6.7 Now good days EDSS 1 Mind, like parachute, work only when open. Charlie Chan  In for the duration.&am

I have been looking a Foundation Formula by the Hoffman Center in New York becuase it has Methyl Cobalamin and MTHFT (Folate)http://www.hoffmancenter.com/page.cfm/285They do not have a return policy where  I can return a supplement if it is not compatible so I is a little risk.I am also considering Life Extension's Two a dayhttp://www.lifeextension.com/Vitamins-Supplements/item02114/Two-Per-Day-Capsules It has has the two ingrediants mentioned above and it has a return policy if one finds it incompatibleI am going to check with whole foods and see what they haveAt this point I am leaning toward Foundation Formula if anyone wants to go half with me and you are in the San Francisco Bay Area let me know

FORGET all the big name brands found in your local drug store - they are ALL derrived from industrial by-products and though may be the 'vitamins' indicated on their labels and thereby the FDA can not make them stop selling the product, these 'vitamins' are not able to be metabolized by the human body - all most all of these 'vitamins' are merely passed thru your system and end up going down the toilet... which is why they (and other industrial pharmaseutical products) are being found in wastewater treatment plants. You might as well just flush them instead of eating them for that is essentially what you are doing.WHAT you need to look for is 'food-based vitamins' derrived from food sources - 100% metabolized by the human body and less full of the accidental industrial waste of the name brand crap. These food-based vitamin pills are larger than their tiny junk pill counterparts, some even remind me of horse pills, heh, heh, but they are chocked full of rich food-based vitamins your body can fully absorb and metabolize.I use 'New Chapter' brand - expensive, but better than just throwing your money down the toilet ;-)

We find consultations, we learn tricks with which we deceive ourselves, but the essential thing - the way - we do not find. Listen to the river...

True and untrue.... The body uses what it needs and most vitamin pills have much more than your body requires, so yes the excess is excreted!If you take for example too much Vit B6 over a long period you will know it. The neuropathy toxicity from this can be dangerous!, even for food derived vitamin b6.  So your body does use it! Olive Leaf extract is another immune booster supplement that I can testify that your body uses. Another reason is that vitamin pills are stand alone vitamins and in most cases vitamins NEED another vitamin or mineral to be absorbed and used by the body, so you need to know what interacts with each other and what is needed by each vitamin to work correctly and food based vitamins have them all together in the proper balances, nature is great like that (-:, like Vitamin D needs Vitamin A to work correctly in the correct ratio, vitamin A protects against Vitamin D toxicity and alot if not most Vitamin D supplements have either NO vitamin A added or if it is added it is in the incorrect ratio. Another example is vitamin b12. Some people need lithium orarate to uptake b12 into your cells and if you don't the vitamin b12 will flood the blood stream giving a false high reading and just get dumped by the body!There are many many more examples of these interactions but I think supplements are very useful but only when done correctly... They helped me greatly over the last 5 years along with herbal extracts.RegardsD

The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

Just like refined foods, these refined vitamins have been robbed of all of the extra accessory nutrients that they naturally come with as well. In turn, like refined foods, they can create numerous problems and imbalances in your body if taken at high levels for long periods of time. They can also act more like drugs in your body, forcing themselves down one pathway or another. At the very least, they won't help you as much as high quality food and food-based supplements. Metabolizing these synthetic industrial waste local drug store junk vitamins/suppliments is the problem - most of it is flushed since it's not used... waste of money/health. With whole food sourced vitamins you are no longer being fooled into thinking something is good for you, doing you good, etc when it just can't... such delusion would be doing more harm than good!

Darren, am I wasting my time by taking vitamin c as plain ascorbic acid with bioflavonoids, or should I be taking l-ascorbic acid?  I seem to be involved in an argument about this with someone who thinks that ascorbic acid without the prefix is synthetic and not absorbed.  However, I do not suffer from scurvy and have no idea if sometines I have taken l-ascorbic acid or not..................Sarah

Most vit c comes as l-ascorbic acid and is the purest form. I would be taking that and not the D form. I also eat the odd daisy in my gardens as this flower is packed with vit c (natural form, which is the L-ascorbic acid) Also is will always say on the ingredients that the vit c was from the ascorbic acid form or the l-ascorbic acid form so just have a quick look at the back label.hope that helpsregardsd

The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

The L- and D- sorts of ascorbate are the same chemical formula, but different enantiomers -- that is, the molecules differ from each other as a right hand differs from a left.  This matters for biology, and in the case of many biomolecules the natural form is one enantiomer and the artificial form is a mixture of the two: the chemical processes create both forms equally, while the biological enzymes just create one.But while this is commonly the case (it's true of vitamin E, for instance), it doesn't seem to apply to Vitamin C, which is always L-ascorbate, even when made industrially.

Not all vit c chemically made is L. I remember taking just D until i realised that L is the one that is the purist and the one nature produces...then a quick search online and noticed a lot of supplements come as calcium absorbat which is 90% A/vit C and 10% calcium, which at high doses can inhibit cooper and B12 intake.regardsd

The Greatest Risk of all is Not taking the Risk...

Where would you get "just D"?  A 50-50 mixture of enantiomers is one thing, but to just get the wrong enantiomer one would have to work hard.  For that matter, even the right one is ridiculously cheap, so there'd be no profit in delivering the wrong one or even a 50-50 mix.  (I'm largely going by what seems like a reasonable discussion of the question here:http://www.vitamincfoundation.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11706Anyway, the reason for taking calcium ascorbate is that it won't dissolve your teeth (if chewed or held in the mouth) nor add to your body's acid load.  To explain, if there's too much acid in the diet, the body takes calcium out of the bones to neutralize it, which if it continues for long is not good for the bones.  This doesn't apply to acids like vinegar which can just be burned for fuel and so don't need to be neutralized.  And it's not even a big concern for vitamin C at the usual vitamin doses.  But if you're taking megadoses it might be a good idea to take ascorbate rather than ascorbic acid.

Thanks Darren ! Actually the person concerned should just have looked at the small print because I looked it up and the brand she was referring to only make l-ascorbic acid..............Sarah
