The price has dropped to 5.70per 180 ct. You can now get 1 year worth for $25 shipped but i found out that the vitamins are shortdated. exp 4/30/18. (should be good for quite some time after the exp date) If you already ordered them, vitacost might pricematch the new price (they did for me) or you can just return them.


Vitacost's ARO 180ct (2 month supply) mens multivitamins are on sale for 11.39 (normally $18.99) and BOGO 50% off.

spend $25 on Vitacost brand products and get free shipping. You can buy less or more.. i just bought enough to hit the free shipping. otherwise, shipping is 5 bucks

there is also a 10% off email sign up coupon you might be able to use.

These vitamins are well reviewed and very comparable to the popular Opti-men by Optimum Nutrition.

Im not sure if this is a super good deal on these but at $34 for 8 months of decent quality multivitamins, i went ahead and bought some. Comes out to about $4.25 per month vs $10-16 per month for MT platinum multi or optimen.

Most of the ARO line is BOGO half off + free shipping over 25. mix and match away.

That's a ton of things in these vitamins. What's the science verdict on these ingredients?

I usually buy multivitamins bases on https://labdoor.com/rankings/multivitamins

Can anyone recommend other unbiased websites that test and rank multivitamins?

The website you listed basically tests for vitamins, but unfortunately has no differentiation between vitamins and minerals from natural sources. Most of the Vitamin's listed there use synthetic ingredients. In their Lab test, they cannot distinguish between natural and synthetic. You can well make your body absorb most of these synthetics as well, but you don't know what the long term effects will be ( I do understand the saying - in the long term, we will all be dead, but I personally dont want to depart this world with a tumor hanging out my wazoo ). So feeding your body a single capsule made of synthetic vitamin's is akin to consuming GMO foods.

Any multivitamin - first of all has to come from 100% natural sources and most in this variety are rather expensive, might cost $40-60 a month, and would be of considerable quantity - 8 to 10 tables a day. You just cannot squeeze natural vitamins and minerals into one or two capsules. I personally consume Mercola's Multivitamin and has been for several years as this is the only one I have spent significant time researching. I am sure there are other kinds out there as well.

I have ordered from Vitacost since 2005, and they have great deals on a lot of products, they pack the items excellent, they ship fast etc... I have only had 2 problems in that time span, and those issues were easily resolved.

That being said, their supplements have always been lower tier, using ingredients like Magnesium Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, Silicon Dioxide, Maltodextrin, Carageenan etc.

I only started researching that after I looked at one of their bottles, and it said "free of" one of those ingredients I mentioned. I wondered why it was "free of" and the others weren't.

The actual vitamins are created in a lab, they aren't sourced from food. I like Mega Food and Garden of Life, but there is probably more brands.

Talk to a doctor and get tested for deficiency and then get prescribed supplement for that deficiency. Multivitamins have been proven to be ineffective at doing anything positive for the general population. Just eat more, and better, food.

I would like to see your proof, which of course must follow these guidelines:

- Not be sponsored by a Pharmaceutical company, or any company that can be traced back to Pharma.

- Involve lab tests to show the bioavailability of the multi to make sure it's legit in the first place, with Mass Spec. (ICP-MS)

- Testing lab must carry ISO 17025 qualifications.

- Involve participants who had their blood work measured before and after the specified test.

As far as "eat more, and better food", that's unfortunately a fairy tale now. The soils are massively depleted of nutrients thanks to the chemical companies bombarding everything with pesticides.

This is a great deal. I've been taking Opti-Men at $23.95 every 1.5 months for years.

what makes you think that mercola's multivitamins are from natural sources? looking at the ingredients (their "whole food multivitamin"), the majority of vitamins and mineral forms are synthesized, isolated, processed, lab created, or whatever the term. just because it adds "food" ingredients and label it as whole food, does not make it a natural source. same ideology applies to brands like megafood, garden of life, new chapter....feeding isolated and synthesized nutrients to yeast and cultivating it with enzymes and whole foods only to advertise it as food derived like it's from the natural source...
