Basic question

I'm looking for a good multiple vitamin to take. I don't have a medical
issue, I mostly eat healthy, and am trying to get back into working out
regularly.

I just need a "boost" to help me along and make sure I have what I need.

Any suggestions?

Just about any multi-vitamin-mineral tablet that sticks close to the lower
ranges of supplementation should be fine. A tablet marketed for "Women"
would be your best bet, as it would include a little iron. Any major brand
should do.

Depending on your diet, one thing you might need more of are long-chain
omega-3 fatty acids. These are generally lacking in most diets, and vitamins
won't help. Consuming fatty fish or taking fish oil capsules will help with
that.

Twinlabs packs.

There is no "single" pill that will provide well. :)

Vitamins offer no such thing as an energy "boost."

The single pill multi-vitamin should be avoided. They are most likely
to cause stomach problems as well as passing out of your body
undigested.

What you want is one of those tiny cellophane multiple pill packages.
They are expensive. And, basically are a convenience item for those
who find convenience more important than saving money.

Just thought that you might want to know.
