Looking for multiples

28th September 2013

Whenever I go to Costco, I see people reading labels to find a daily complete multivitamin. The one I’m linking to here has 5 stars. It has a complete profile and then some.

To me, the biggest extra is reishi. I first learned about reishi years ago when some network marketers were trying to sell a resihi supplement. I read a few studies and gave it a try. It was a big decision because resihi is expensive (one reason it’s impressive to see it in a multiple). Anyway, I took it for a couple of years and my immune system got way stronger and my allergies got better. I like reishi.

More recently, I tried Cordyceps Sinensis. It was being touted as something for bodybuilders and exercise gurus when I bought it – supposed to improve overall health and muscle. I didn’t have the amazing experience with Cordyceps that I had with resihi, but it’s another expensive supplement that you would not usually see in a multivitamin.

CoQ10 is another one that people often buy separately, but is included in this daily vitamin. Every cell in your body likes CoQ10 and the best ways to get it through diet are by eating heart, liver, and kidney. I don’t eat those things so I like the idea of putting it in a little pill. Again. pretty impressive to see it in a multivitamin instead of sold separately.

This viatmin also has the usual vitamin A, B 1-6 & 12, C, D, E, and so on. I’m not going to run through every ingredient in the vitamin, but I encourage you to check it out for yourself – the link is right at the beginning of the post.
