What Is The Best Multi-Vitamins Available Today?

If you're like me (a health enthusiast in health nutrition and health supplementing), you'd see that there are so, so many multi-vitamins available today, wherever you go.

At the grocers, at the pharmacies, in the hospitals, and clinics - so many choices.

Question is really,

"what is truly the best and most effective multi-vitamin available today?"

Fine, maybe we can't tell from 1000 of them, then how about just having the top 10? You know, determining the best multi-vitamin brands will take a lot of time and effort to research and test.

It's a pretty expensive affair too. Seems like ConsumerLab.com charges from $75,000 USD upwards per ingredient to test the best multi-vitamins available.

I'm using a simpler method.

The health supplement industry is a very, very profitable industry (we're talking billions, if not more), and that's why it needs very keen oversight and regulations to keep things in order and prevent fraudulent supplements. Sadly, in United States, there is FDA that is generallythe health supplements industry, but it's not really enforced yet.

Also, finding good quality and top multi-vitamins will be difficult because of customers not trusting brands (which is normal, given how common health supplement fraud and lying product labels are available freely)...and this is why many manufacturers are actively and voluntarily and on their own accord, registering and subscribing to the "cGMP" which stands for "current Good Manufacturing Practices" (sometimes known as GMP too)

Being GMP-registered and staying GMP-compliant is a very, very tiring, difficult and expensive process. It means that the manufacturer has to be compliant with many FDA and GMP standards, which includes:

  • sourcing of raw ingredients
  • manufacturing processes
  • finished product handling
  • product labeling accuracy
  • employee training
  • equipment and facility maintenance

They all have to meet the FDA-set requirements. Any manufacturer that is GMP-compliant is 100% free of contaminants and banned substances, and their product label is true to its word.

GMP-compliance also means ongoing and regular facility audits from USP or NSF that certifies products and creates standards for dietary and health supplements, food, water and consumer goods to minimize health risks and protect the public and the environment. GMPs for NSF International Dietary Supplements Registration Program are included in NSF International American National Standard 173, the only American National Standard for Dietary Supplements.

To add, pharmaceutical GMP-compliance ensures that finished products are of extremely highest quality, which all pharmaceutical companies are required to have. Very few health supplement companies have this level of GMP compliance, and only Xtend-Life and Douglas Labs have them.

Being in the health and healthcare industry since 2002 - 2005 as a student, and practiced since 2005 till date, I've seen first hand the ravages of poor health, be it by accident, by genes or by poor life and health decisions...and healthcare is very, very expensive.

Being in this line allowed me the opportunity to speak to many health and wellness practitioners, from medical and surgical doctors, to general practitioners, to Chinese Physicians, osteopaths, naturopaths, supplement experts and other health supplement enthusiasts like myself - that's likely how it rubbed onto me.

Of course, as I age, as I gain more responsibilities like my family, my friends, my work - I become increasingly aware of the need to ensure I do my best for my health, so I can be around as long as I can for them, in my best health.

And that's what I wish for you as well - the best health so that you can be around (healthily) for people, family and things that are meaningful and valuable to you, whatever that means to you.

That's what propelled me into seeking more alternative, natural and naturopathic healing supplements.

There are so much rubbish, noise, and lies and fraud out there, from people and companies who just want to line their pockets, and I've been equally (if not more) burnt by such individuals and companies. Since 2003, I've been searching and accumulating the best practices and evidences to support better health.

Although I don't like to be negative, but you must know that there are a lot of forces out there that aims for society to not be healthy, and to stay weak, as it'd be profitable to certain large organizations, and it is for you to discover and decide on your own to build and grow your own health.

I am not a medical doctor, nor am I a herbalist, or nutritionist - I am but a humble health supplement enthusiast. I studied and practiced occupational therapy, specializing in hand therapy and upper limb injury management since 2005.

Improving health via health supplementing is more like a passion of mine.

Is There a Multi-vitamin That is Better Than The Others out there?

There's always a better way, a better solution to better health.

Good health supplementation is one of the key foundations that is vital and cornerstone of great and optimal health.

BUT it works with a good exercise regime, regular rest and deep sleep, good and balanced diet, and lots of good socialization. Health supplement is very good when you lack any good diet, poor sleep, poor exercise regime, but even better when it's added onto a balance lifestyle.

Always look for health supplements that has met cGMP/GMP-standards - this is what is key that determines quality. Don't listen to any spokesperson who may just be hired to market a product. Read the fine print, look for that GMP-compliance.

I hope this multi-vitamin review article has been useful and helpful to your health decision.
