There are countless vitamin products for sale in the marketplace. They range in price from less than a penny per cap up into the hundreds. Since I'm a firm believer in supplementing diet with a good multivitamin, I've tried too many of these products with often disappointing results. My doctor recommended I try GNC's Ultra Mega Women's Vitamins when I was first diagnosed with lupus in 1990. He stressed the importance of good supplementation to help ease the fatigue that so often accompanies this disease.
I bought my first bottle not long after my appointment, but I was extremely skeptical. I bought the 90 capsule bottle, figuring I wouldn't lose much when they failed to work. Within 4 days though, the foggy fatigue I lived with most days was noticeably less. And after a full week my energy level was over 75% improved. Then.. by happenstance KCRA TV ran a series on vitamins and their true effectiveness. One of the aspects they addressed was the true amount of active ingredient in the product sold. Surprisingly, the well advertised household brands did very very poorly. In a field of 5 major brands, only GNC delivered the actual advertised active ingredients.
And there are lots of good things in these powerhouse multi's : along with the standard A B C of the lot, they include many much needed but lesser known vitamins. Vitamin K, Biotin, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Chromium and Molybendium. They also give you a generous 105mg. of anti-oxidant supplementation in each dose. GNC uses no starch or fillers in their products, making them safer for many of us who suffer from allergies to take supplements without fear of a reaction. If you are not able to tolerate iron in your supplements, GNC offers Ultra Mega's without iron so you can still take advantage of their superior formula.
You can find GNC in most cities, but if you don't have a store in your community you can order online at www.GNC.com or through www.drugstore.com
