This is where you will find only the brands which passed our lab’s quality analysis. Our quality analysis, which is our basic supplement screening process, simply filters product that do not meet the following criteria:
- The supplement must contain at least 95% of the vitamin quantity claimed by its label (5% deterioration is the standard allowance for storage and delivery)
- The supplement must contain NO IMPURITIES OR ADDITIVES, such as artificial coloring, etc.
After the screening process, each product is graded according to additional criteria:
- Vitamin diversity – The variety of vitamins within each supplement. Finding a well-balanced supplement will promote overall health and helps to resolve broad-spectrum deficiencies.
- Potency – the amount of vitamins within the supplement, measured in mg.
- Price – self-explanatory, however it is important to remember that in most cases you get what you pay for.
You might notice that there are no gummy or chewable vitamins on this list, which is because gummies and chewables contain 40%-70% less vitamins and minerals than standard multivitamins. We’re looking for the best of the best.
As men and women have different dietary needs, we have included multivitamin options which are specific to either gender. In addition to our top picks for men and women, there are two general-purpose multivitamins and our top prenatal vitamin choice.
