Solgar Earth Source Multi-Nutrient

There are multivitamins and then there are multivitamins. Solgar Earth Source Multi-Nutrient must be one of the most complete whole food multis on the face of the planet. This multivitamin formula includes whole food concentrates from some of the most nutritionally potent plant foods on earth. These include foods that are bursting with bioflavonoids, chlorophyll, enzymes, carotenoids, nucleic acids and cell salts. The synergistic formula provides antioxidants as well as beneficial phytonutrients.

                                 Who should take it?
Solgar recommends that Solgar Earth Source Multi-Nutrient Tablets are designed for men and women who want to achieve the benefits associated with a multivitamin containing whole food concentrates. Just what "whole food concentrates" are you can see below but there isn't any ingredient which seem to be lacking. This multivitamin is favoured by my daughter who is a young, very active young lady who eats well but nevertheless feels the extra health insurance it provides prevents her from becoming run-down.
