My reading has always suggested just a normal generic/store brand form of the "Centrum" vitamin was a good base. Then add whatever supplements you choose.
All supplements (even my favorite, flax oil) seem to appear at one point or another in studies showing them harmful.
I still take a daily D, some (anti-oxidant) E, and some (anti-oxidant) C.
We make our choices and take our chances....
I quit taking the multi-vitamin when I recently read that Folic Acid / Folate is risky for cancer patients as it increases the growth rate of cancer cells.
(Folate is still absolutely necessary for pre-pregnant and pregnant women!)
I eat a fairly good diet. Still, as I had a 6 gleeson, an organ-contained biopsy, and a .003 micro-PSA at 6 months post surgery, I am considering taking the multi again for all of those other trace elements. Probably only a couple of times a week, though.
Let us know what you decide on!
P.S. Swim, California was excellent! If you see a box of plumcots or peaches or nectarines with Family Tree Farms on the label, rest assured their care for their product is unsurpassed.
