    Hey all,

    I've been taking multi-vitamins for the past year. Just your average, everyday multi vitamin pills (like centrum pills). They seem to make my body feel better and give me a bit more energy in the morning. I don't take them everyday as i like to keep my body guessing and i don't want to get to a point that i HAVE to have them. Recently i've been educated a bit on them and basically told that they don't do much for you. Yes, they help a bit, but it's not as much as say 'Greens' do.

    I've been talking to various people and my chiropractor and basically, they all suggest something along the lines of this:

    My chiropractor gave me a sample packet to try it last night and i did. It looks nasty as hell, but it doesn't taste bad (i had it with apple juice).

    My question is, does anyone take this type of stuff instead of multivitamins? Should i start buying this stuff (which is 2-3 times more expensive than multivitamins) instead of the multivitamins? The answer seems to be yes, but i wanted to get some more opinions. :cool: Thanks! :)

    So how oftern are u actually supposed to take that stuff? It says 3 daily and at the recomended serving size you'll go through the stuff in 10 days, is it really THAT good? Im thinkin 1 serving a day mixed in with all of the other fruits and veggies I eat will be better :dunno:

    Our company had a lot to do with the input the owner received in making his product. We spent a lot of time with him.

    Take it along with

    food sourced vitamins are generally better accepted by the body... switch to a whole food multi and take it along with the greens
