With all the controversy over getting nutrients from fruits, and vegetables; which is the best way for the body to receive nutrients; where does multivitamins take its place?

So, it is necessary to take a multivitamin? The answer is with a resounding yes! Most Americans do not get the daily recommended intake that's needed to maintain a healthy balanced lifestyle. Adults need a multivitamin. There is concern regarding absorption, and if supplements are absored in the body. Different sources and articles have stated that vitamins along with other types of pills sometimes pass through the body without being absorbed.
For my daily preference of multivitamins, I recommend the softgel supplements. I find that the Nature's Plus Nutri-Genic soft gel multivitamin are very effecive. Currently I am taking the soft gen liquid gel multivitamin to guage the difference between the two vitamins to see if there is a difference between the two vitamins or if they are the same in quality and effectiveness. So far both seem to be equal. However, in my opinion I believe the Nutri-Genic soft gels are better in qaulity. The Nature's Plus Nutri-genic are especially made for individuals with a sensitive stomach In my twenties I actual took Geritol for a long period of time. It was recommended to me because I was keeping a very busy schedule never getting the right balanced diet, and always extremely tired.
I was really shocked at how well this particular vitamin worked in my particular situation. I know way back when Geritol was commonly used for Senior adults, and I laughed when I was told me to try it. I could not believe the difference in how I felt when I began to take Geritol.
Nowadays I stick with the multi-vitamin soft gels, I believe they are better because they absorb in your blood stream better than the tablet form of vitamins. I feel excellent, and everyone always tell me I look great!
