  • I like to take a multi vitamin that has high levels of vitamins and minerals as well as “extras” like green whole foods, enzymes, and herbal products as well
  • The one problem with the supplement that I had was one that I should have seen coming, but didn’t look
  • Since I had already opened the bottle by the time I noticed it, I decided to be brave and try to take them anyway
  • I would still recommend these, as they have tons of great stuff in them, but only if you are not sensitive to iron

      I like to take a multi vitamin that has high levels of vitamins and minerals as well as “extras” like green whole foods, enzymes, and herbal products as well. I have tried several brands, and Opus One’s Women’s formula caught my attention, since it was the only one (at the time) I had seen made with all of these things and specifically made for women.

      The ninety count bottle lasts for about a month and a half, since you have to take two a day. There are over fifty nutrients and natural substances in the formula, covering a wide spectrum of support for the immune system, heart, nervous system and everything else imaginable. It is recommended that you take this formula with food, which I always do with a vitamin anyway.


      The product warns that if you have symptoms like stomach pain, headache, rash, tiredness or dizziness, to report them to your doctor. This is not something I usually see on a supplement, but it is an understandable warning, as high levels of some nutrients can have side effects.

      The one problem with the supplement that I had was one that I should have seen coming, but didn’t look. While looking over the formula and thinking it looked just like the others I had used but with a few extras added for women specifically, I completely overlooked the 18 mg of iron it contained. I don’t tolerate iron well. It makes me nauseous, and this was a potent enough dose to cause some serious problems. I don’t know why I did not think to ...


      • look for it, because a lot of women need extra iron so it is a perfectly logical thing to include in a women’s formula. Call it one of my “duh” moments. Since I had already opened the bottle by the time I noticed it, I decided to be brave and try to take them anyway.

        I took the first dose with a full morning meal, but I chose a day when I did not have anywhere to go– and this was a wise decision. I was turning green within an hour of taking the pills. I managed to keep them down, but not without a lot of will power and complete immobility on the couch for two hours.

        The next day I decided to see if I would build up a bit of tolerance

        to them over time, so for the next week, I forced myself to take them and see what happened. The effects did lessen slightly, but not enough that I could function normally. My next try was to take one pill instead of the two. This helped somewhat, so I was able to finish the bottle this way. Even the lower dose was enough to make me a little queasy.

        This is a great vitamin, if you can stomach the iron. Once I used the bottle up, I went to a similar type of product that did not include iron. I don’t blame the product– just my own lack of thought. I would still recommend these, as they have tons of great stuff in them, but only if you are not sensitive to iron.
