  • The only reason I stopped taking this one is that I found another Swanson multi-vitamin that I liked better
  • If I had never run across that one, I would still take this one, so because I still like it and have had no complaints about it (aside from the smell and taste, but most, if not all, of multi's have that awful scent and flavor), I would recommend it to anyone wanting a good multi-vitamin

      Vitamin and Mineral supplements are an every day (or, if I am lazy, an “every other day”) thing for me because I do not get enough of them in my diet since it is so restrictive because of health. I take a few stand-alone vitamins, and I also take a multi-vitamin, One that I used for a few years before replacing it with a multi that contained a higher dose of vitamins and minerals is Swanson Century Formula without Iron. I loved this multi-vitamin even though there were a

      few things I did not like about them.

      The main difference between this multi-vitamin and the one I use now is that it contains Vitamin K as well as Potassium. I take stand-alone supplements for both of those now, however. I never really cared for the smell of them which is a lot like buttered toast (and, weird enough, they are yellow with brown flecks in them like a hunk of butter with toast crumbs in it), but I appreciate it a lot better after having to take the disgusting-smelling multi-vitamins I take now. Each bottle contains 130 of the really large chalky-type pills that leave a gross after-taste in my mouth as they go down my throat. I had to wash them down with a lot of water to get that taste away.

      The average daily value percent for the majority of the vitamins and minerals is 100%, but there are a couple that have a little over (but not much), and some that are only a fraction. It includes the vitamins A,C, D, E, K, B-6,

      & B-12, as well as the supplements for Thiamine, riboflavin, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid USP, Calcium Iodine, Magnesium, Zinc, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, and Potassium. The one thing it does not have is Iron which is great because multi’s with Iron added always make me regurgitate the pills. Basically, they make me sick to my stomach. But, these pills never did that. They were great in that way, and I just took a stand-alone Iron supplement that was gentle on my stomach in addition to
      this multi.

      The only reason I stopped taking this one is that I found another Swanson multi-vitamin that I liked better. If I had never run across that one, I would still take this one, so because I still like it and have had no complaints about it (aside from the smell and taste, but most, if not all, of multi’s have that awful scent and flavor), I would recommend it to anyone wanting a good multi-vitamin. Especially someone who gets the most of their vitamins and minerals from the foods they eat.
