    Natural source vitamins are the best. There are some studies that suggest synthetic vitamins are not bio-available to the body. In fact, in one study it was seen that those who took no vitamins were better off health wise than those who took synthetic vitamins.

    Depends what you mean by "best".

    Unless you have a specific deficiency you are trying to treat then a multi-vitamin may be the best.

    Flintstones chewable multi-vitamins are classic. Kids love them and i'd eat them too!

    Calcium helps with bones.

    Zinc helps with immune system.

    Vitamin B helps with metabolism.

    There are many pharmaceutical companies nowadays who manufacture multi-vitamins in a single capsule. Why take 1 capsule for each vitamin when you can take 1 capsule with different vitamins, minerals, etc. at roughly the same cost.

    There are a vast majority of manufactures out there. I prefer the Vitamin Shoppe Brand. Among others are Solaray, Naturemade, and Natrol. They are more consistent, and do not contain additives, and usually in a natural base. Such as rice, or soy. The best types for adults are capsule and liquid, as we tend to not utilize hard pressed pills. For children, and adults the gummies are the best, Sundown makes a good one, as does Vitafusion. As we chew the vitamin, the nutrients are then absorbed, and distributed to the blood stream. The same as subliminal tabs, (under the tongue) only a lot cheaper.
