Costco.com has a sale on their vitamins as well as a progressively larger discount for buying 3, 4, or 5 items. I am using this as an opportunity to stock up for my family and thought others might be interested.

This is a repost. For the record, though, it combines with the vitamins that are already on sale. The calcium was an especially good deal at $4 a bottle if you buy 5.

Doctor here. If you have a specific vitamin deficiency, take a vitamin to correct it. Maybe calcium and vitamin D for older adults (poor data). But there is no evidence of benefit for multivitamins and other random vitamins for adults who eat a normal healthy diet.

...unless you have macular degeneration, in which case taking a fortified multivitamin following the AREDS II formula has been conclusively shown to retard progression of the disease and therefore slow vision loss. Costco's Ocusite capsules, which are included in this sale, are a variation on the AREDS II formula and a pretty good deal if you are buying in bulk. But note that one bottle will last you about 5 months. Watch those freshness dates.

But not many people eat healthy diets; in fact, most don't. And for that reason, multivitamin supplementation is a good idea and Harvard agrees with that notion: https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/nutritionsource/multivitamin/

"Well, while there's some value to taking multivitamins, the human body can only absorb so much. What you're buying here are the ingredients for very expensive urine."
- Sheldon Cooper to Penny when in the supplement (massive profit) section of the grocery store.

Vitamin D (1000 iu) daily can be beneficial, especially in winter or if you spend much of your life indoors, and is just as effective as getting it from sunlight, while not risking skin damage. My physician in Canada recommended it. Food does not deliver what you need, and there's very little of it in a multivitamin.

Those that go overboard with supplements are simply and literally flushing away money.

I couldn't find the other thread using the search so if you could provide a link to it, that would be great.
Does anyone know how often does Costco do this online vitamin promotion? Also, I'm assuming the online prices for the items on sale that are sold in stores are slightly higher than the in store sale prices in order to cover shipping costs and then the additional savings for buying 3 or more basically makes it equal to the in store price. Is that correct?
