Looking for a new 'multi vitamin'

#1 Postby Cellar Yeti » Tue Mar 08, 2011 3:10 am

I take NOW True Food Vegan as a sort of multi-vitamin. I really like it because it's made with whole foods and super foods, plust it's got mostly organic ingredient. It's more of a nutritional supplement than a multi-vitamin though, and I'm trying to cut costs.

I was wondering if there were any other multi vitamin like products out there made with super foods? Are there any that are made with mostly organic ingredients?

I use the exact same thing. Didn't know it was mostly organic.

Yeah, it says right on the label, 70% organic ingredients. Good stuff.

I know they make liquid multi vitamins and I priced it out to .25 cents a serving for some of the natural ones, but natural doesn't mean anything. I've been searching and trying to find something a bit cheaper than Now True Food that is more of a mutli.

How about New Chapter? http://www.newchapter.com/vitamins#multivitamins

My guess would be that it's more expensive though.

I take the Rainbow Light non-organic ones, easier to choke down than the now adam Iused to take. Vitamin supplements just help fill in any dietary gaps so any quality one should be fine.

The vitamin D in those is animal derived.

I'm not goob, but I'm going to guess because it says D3. D2 is vegan.

According to the Rainbow Light website it's a vegan vitamin. It says VeganGuard under the vitamins (Featured Products) on the front page: http://www.rainbowlight.com/

VeganGuard screened for vegans to be free of animal products.

ETA: Here it doesn't list the organic multi-vitamins to be vegan though.

I'm going to email the company and see why they have information that doesn't match up on their site. I'll post when I hear back.

In my experience, Rainbow Light has incorrect ingredient labels floating around online. I can't get their site to load right now, but I've ordered VeganGuard ones a few times before where the label said D3 on some sites, but the bottle said D2 when it arrived.

Right now I'm taking their Energizer One (with VeganGuard).

That's not to say they don't have non-vegan ones though, so at least make sure they are indicated as VeganGuard.

I just heard back from Rainbow Light, here's their reply...

"Thank you for the reminder. The Organic line is not vegan and yes the multi's contain the D-3. We hope to have this changed shortly."
