I've been taking these for a couple years and though I cannot honestly say I feel a surge of energy, etc. I can say that with the research I did before starting a multivitamin, this one seemed like one of the best. I am relatively healthy and its my goal to stay that way. I try to eat well but there has been much said about the depletion of nutrients in the soil which has led to food with less nutritive value. That being said I thought a multivitamin would "fill in the gaps". I will continue to use this vitamin.
I use this product, and likely others in the future from "Garden of Life" because they are "raw", naturally gotten vitamins and minerals. This makes a great difference for what can be absorbed by the body, and not like some of the chemically hammered vitamins that are most prevalent on the market. Good health will prevent most of the ills that are so wide spread in our society.
