I've been taking the Freedavite Tiny Tabet Moderate Multi-Vitamin by Freeda. (I order it from VegetarianVitamin.com) I like that it doesn't have more than 100% of anything, but because it's so small, it has very little of certain minerals like Calcium, Magnesium, and Copper.
I take a separate Mega Minerals supplement by Nature's Life that I got from Whole Foods, but I'm having a problem with it upsetting my stomach in the morning, even if I take a little food with it. And it has shockingly large amounts of certain minerals, like 500% RDA of Manganese. I can't help worrying that's not a good idea.
I'd really love to find a twice-a-day vegetarian multi that has plenty of minerals, but no more than 100% of any one thing. I have a problem getting enough magnesium and zinc, and I'd like to quit taking multiple supplements if I can.
So far, this is the closest I've found, and it doesn't have enough magnesium:https://secure17.nexternal.com/share...t=products.asp
I get headaches if I don't supplement magnesium aggressively. (No, DelicGrape, this isn't related to me being veg-- it's been a problem for years, even when I was eating meat.)
