    I use "Biogen MULTI Vitamin Plus"... I wouldn't know if it's the best or not, and despite it coming from a company who specialize in bodybuilding supplements, my doctor and a pharmacist recommended it.

    It's got most of the common stuff in it, but according to the label, it has Lutein (Whatever that is...) and it has Spirulina, which I know helps for mental alertness, and since most bodybuilders are men, I'd think they catered for men more than women.

    Containers, they come in 30/60 Caplets.

    Price, uhm... I can't remember, but they weren't more expensive than the rest.

    Eat at least a whole tomatoe, a whole banana and a whole orange daily. Use lots of garlic and onion in cooking and blanch fresh veggies not boil the hell out of them.

    No artificial vitamin pills required.

    I like that combination.... I eat crushed garlic like there's no tomorrow... (immune system) and tomatoes & tomato sauce on almost everything I eat - good for the testes (sperm & testosterone production - thanks wikipedia) and then I eat 7 oranges a day, no jokes, and as for the veggies, I have my regular portions.

    Nice!

    P.S That Biogen does have most of what a man needs daily... just checked the FDA requirements... and it DOES cater for men more than women, i.e more iodine, B1 - B12, Iron, Phosphorous, etc

    A healthy diet with a good multivitamin should be good enough, dont spend too much on the pills though as you will end up with very expensive pee. Your body only absorbs what it needs the rest goes down the drain.

    I disagree.
    Most food today have upto 50% less vitamins than they should, barring bananas for some reason.
    Woolworths food is....... well I think they geneticly made, no way a banana can grow so perfect and tomatoes so firm, Woolies are the only ones to sell these type of bananas and tomatoes and other veg.... weird and they now charge extra for "organic" tomatoes and bananas..... those look like the veg I know....

    Anyway our food doesnt have the nutritional value that it used to.
    We need a multivitamin.

    Weeeeell, seeing as we haven't had a good thread necro in a while......

    I am looking to supplement my diet with a multivitamin or booster, I find that by around 13:00 or so I start feeling bleh....
    Normally I just take a good swig of bioplus, that sorts it out.

    But I was wondering if anyone knows of a decent daily multivitamin, maybe that will do the trick.

    Foodstate is very good I think, and they have one for males, females and another as just a normal daily vitamin. The one for males are hard to swallow though, so often you have to chew them to get them down and they taste horrible. The idea behind foodstate is that they somehow create the vitamins and minerals in a "food form" instead of it just being in the "naked" artificial state that a factory might pump out. So being in food form, your body absorbs it better. There was a court case regarding this claims as a competitor took the company that makes these "food form" supplements to court saying that their multi vitamins gets absorbed just as well as the food state ones. The court looked at the studies presented by the food state company and found in their favour, ruling that the food state ones are indeed better and does get absorbed much better than the regular supplements.

    It is rather expensive though. R250.00 I think for the male one. Has 60 tablets but you take two a day so it is a month supply.

    Do you drink a lot of caffeine? Might be why you hit a slump.
