I know that all the latest research indicates that multivitamins aren't of much value. However, I have a crazy wor and home schedule and travel a lot so I like to fall back on this for covering the vitamins I miss while dashing around. When I checked the label on the Solgar bottle, I found the formula to be nicely balanced with what I'm likely missing. I'm pretty sure I need the amount of various B vitamins found in this formula. On the other hand, I didn't want the iron found in many other multivitamins. The Solgar brand includes a lot of minerals as well as vitmains and makes it clear the sources for each component. Yes, the price tag for Solgar products in always high, but I feel the quality matches the price tag. One likely reason for the high price tags is the number of herbs used in the formula. I find Solgar vitamins at good health food stores wherever I travel.
