Choosing a multivitamin
Choosing a multivitamin can be confusing. There are many multivitamins available. Some are packaged in a pill that remains intact through your digestive system. You can find them floating on top of the septic tank. Others have varying degrees of absorption.
The composition of multivitamins is not standard, and in fact the quality of the chemicals used in the multivitamin can vary as well. Some use manufactured chemicals while other companies use "natural" forms. Some companies try to include large portions of the plants which provide the vitamins. Although this results in far greater bulk, it also means that your body is getting a combination of nutrients more like what you would get in nature.
To help us in choosing a multivitamin Julie and I have used a reference tool which evaluates the composition of vitamins and rates them. We have also interviewed a number of manufactures (including the men who actually designed the mixture of vitamins and nutrients in the vitamin blend) at the American Academy of Anti-aging Medicine.
We have come across several companies we feel produce a quality product. Since these companies usually sell only to physicians, we are in the process of obtaining permission to make our "number" available to our patients so they can order directly from the company.
One particular Multivitamin that we recommend is SupraCap. You can find more information about this product by clicking the link below. This is the multivitamin that Dr. Douglis uses daily. If you would like to try this please send a note to Cindy@drdouglis.com for more information or to place your order.
