    I have a soft spot for NOW brand stuff since I trust them; when I have the money I use their vitamins. When I'm feeling cheap, I get Centrum or whatever for 2 bucks at Wal-Mart and don't sweat it.

    when you're doing 135 Deadlifts for reps, your body is really going to need all the vitamins it can get.

    Yes, do you really think you need to supplement all the different crap they put in there? You get most of that from your food.

    No... why? I take vitamin C if there's colds going around. Multis don't give you enough of that, but they have plenty of things that you will get anyways if you're on a decent diet.

    Uhhh unless you eat your complete required servings of vegetables and fruits everyday as well as eating a variety of fruits and vegetables every day i doubt you get everything you need from food.

    They're not a "fix everything" supp..they're a "CYA" supp. Most people don't eat completely balanced diets, especially if they're dieting.

    I recently started taking NOW's Adam Superior Men...multi.
    This...but a capsule version.

    I've only been regularly taking multi's in the last 6 months.
    Other brands I took are Solaray multi or Platinum Active Men multi.
