    Why does Centrum suck? A MV is a MV.. I use One-a-Day Men's formula or something.. I don't think there is much difference between all of them. I buy flax seed and fish oil from walmart.

    Look for DHA/EPA content in your fish oils.

    fish oil hass omega-3 where as flax oil has omega-6 and omega-3

    americans get way to much omega-6 in the diet, some studies say that we should get a 1 to 3-5 ratio of omega-3 to omega-6, americans are more like 1 to 10-30

    so no you dont need both, pretty much only fish oil

    i read some shit about some MVs having a calcium-based casing that prevented proper absorption of the MV contents, but i forget the details -- anybody know what im referencing here?

    I like all of NOW's stuff, just ordered their Adam multivit from 1fast

    Previously I've used ON's Opti-Men. I can definitely tell a difference in energy, general wellness compared to a lot of store-brand multivit's.
