Its interesting to note that the guide that CT has referred to (and others mention in this thread) was authored by a ‘trained biochemist’ who is neither a medical doctor nor a PhD and who served on the advisory board for USANA, whose product he lists as #1 (and #6).
The company itself resembles a pyramid scheme and is described as a ‘multilevel marketing company’.
I certainly wouldn’t argue that the quality of some multi’s is better than others, and there could be some merit in the research that was conducted to publish that guide. Given the circumstances though, I would probably take it with a huge grain of salt.[/quote]
I think most folks should take things with a grain of salt, but I also don’t think being a doctor means every word from their mouth is golden.
Why would you think a being a biochemist would exclude the evaluator from having a PhD?
In any case, I like having at least a list that narrows down the huge field of multivitamins.
Maximus mentions mother nature but sometimes you can’t eat enough of the whole food to effectuate a difference.
mutlivitamins are just double checking the door is locked.
