Multivitamin supplements are commonly provided in combination with dietary minerals. This multivitamin has all that a man needs to stay health in conjunction with daily exercise and good nutrition. It is easy to swallow and I have never had any after taste. According to the Harvard School of Public Health: "Looking at all the evidence, the potential health benefits of taking a standard daily multivitamin seem to outweigh the potential risks for most people." As a RN, I firmly believe that this is the best multivitamin that I have ever taken. I feel healthier while on it. If I run out, I feel down and not so energetic. When taking a multivitamin it is best to take at bedtime. During sleep, your body rests and heals itself from the days' abuse. As an added benefit, MVI can cause stomach upset, which you will sleep through. I have never had this problem, thankfully since I have GERD. Nature's Way is all natural with no fillers and as a Nurse who around sick people all the time, the vitamins have kept me healthy. I have taken them on a regular basis and have not been ill in over a year. As with any supplement always follow the instructions about taking it.
