Best whole food multi ever!

This unique multi contains all of the standard vitamins like A, C, E, B vitamins etc that you would find in any high potentcy multi, nothing is missed.

But...Read complete review

This unique multi contains all of the standard vitamins like A, C, E, B vitamins etc that you would find in any high potentcy multi, nothing is missed.

But what I really love is the wide variety of natural fruits, veggies, herbs, berries, mushrooms, and green foods.

It seems that every natural food you can think of (and many you've never heard of) is included in this formula.

Not a lot of any one, but science is beginning to show the synergy that can be created by combining antioxidants. Here you will reap benefits of substances that haven't even been discovered yet.

Some say the pills are a bit large, I don't think so.. about the same as most fish oils, maybe smaller. And I have some difficultly swallowing pills.

Others say the 3 capsule dose is too much. Well you can take just one and get more vitamins and minerals than what you will find in most brands. Plus all the added natural ingredients. I take one with each meal to ensure a steady supply of nutrients.

These vitamins stink, but that's good! It reminds you that they contain spirulina (healthy pond scum), medicinal funji, and other healthy organic ingredients that are pungent.

Finally, they disolve quickly. Touch them with damp hands and they will start to come apart. Many vitamins are like bricks that will go through your system and end up in the toilet.

Another thing...These bottles of multis (the 180 count size is pretty large) is filled all the way to the top with product...no cotton or empty space!

Caution... One big box retailer carries a form of this brand that is similar but doesn't have all the ingredients. Price is about the same though.

I'm on the drugstore.com mailing list and I always get sent discount links that I can apply to this product, great deals! Just got 360 of them for $45 including shipping!

I know this is long, but I hope someone finds it useful! :)

Difficult to swallow, nasty smell

I've been using the ALIVE Women's Energy multivitamin and thought I would try these. UGH, big mistake. Horrible smell, hard to swallow. Threw them away.

    I take these vitamins because I work long hours on an ambulance and don't always get nutritious meals. These vitamins are complete. Another thing I like is you take one with breakfast, lunch and dinner so you are getting a constant flow of vitamins with every meal throughout the day.

            Comments about Nature's Way Alive! Whole Food Energizer Multivitamin, Tablets, 180 ea:

            Honestly, I've never taken vitamins for any length of time. They've always given me indigestion, even Centrum Silver (though I was only 25 when I tried taking them). I started running to raise $ for Leukemia/Lymphoma & realized I wasn't getting the nutrients I need from my diet. I supplemented my healthy diet with Alive! and could not be happier! I LOVE THESE VITAMINS. I have a ton of energy, my nails & hair are growing like weeds, my skin's never looked healthier. I take 3 a day and, if I forget, I feel lethargic & tired. They are worth the $, reasonably priced, and easy to find. They're a little big, but with a gulp of water, I'm fine. They also taste a little like sea-weed, but they have kelp in them so I guess it's to be expected. After the 1st week, the sea-like flavor has grown on me. Side note: my urine is neon yellow (even with drinking 80-100 oz of water daily). I've had NO side effects, no indigestion, and no after-taste. I tell everyone to take them (and No I'm not being paid to write this LOL) Hope this helps!

              Comments about Nature's Way Alive! Whole Food Energizer Multivitamin, Tablets, 180 ea:

              I think this supplement has worked wonders for my husband and I. We both take it after eating, me after breakfast and him after lunch. The energy boost is pretty noticeable after the first couple of days. I haven't needed to take any other vitamins in addition. We take it everyday since we got it it and its been about 2 weeks- so far we both feel great and we only take one pill per day unlike the suggested 3... I might move it up to 3 later on but for now this works out fine.
              I think we're going to try out the women's and men's versions, respectively, after this bottle is finished since I don't think my husband, like most men, wants a lot of iron in his diet... and I prefer to have separate vitamins since it makes more sense considering our different needs.

                Really love these vitamins. They have increased my energy level, and I've cut back on caffeine intake since starting them. Noticed that taking them without a full meal upsets my stomach some, but when i take after lunch, I totally skip the sfternoon fade!

                  I take 2 of these during the day - one in the morning and a second one after lunch in the afternoon. I definitely don't have a problem with the afternoon crash anymore and I'm not constantly at the coffee machine trying to acquire more energy.

                    the daily dosage is 3 tablets. I've been taking 1 a day for 2 weeks.

                    My hair is growing faster (a con only because I'm gonna have to pay to cover up the grey more often)

                    My nails are definitely noticeably stronger - they've been paper thin for years.

                    And the best part, I have far more energy than normal. And it's not jittery, nervous energy - it's productive, clear thoughts & focus energy. Similar to how you feel later in the day after having a good workout in the morning.

                    They are a little challenging to swallow if you're not a fan of taking pills, and just one turns my urine bright yellow - so I'm not taking the recommended 3 daily.
