First, they list these as a veggie cap which means it is a capsule not a caplet or soft transparent capsule. It looks like any other capsule, but the capsule part is not plastic based but vegetable based. I chose Thorne because of their integrity and quality and research and I wanted a small MV in a capsule for my 10 year old daughter. I have her take 2/3s of the daily dosage. She has only been using these for about 2-3 weeks and here is what we have observed. My daughter says she feels healthier and has more energy. She dances about 7 hours a week in addition to her normal kid activities. We, the parents, have noticed that she is not as hyper and more alert and has not succumbed to any colds, etc that most of her friends have. She also seems to be more alert and not as drained in the day or evening from all her activities. Her disposition is also more calmer and pleasant. In the past with other MVs she would complain of periodic stomach aches or feeling slightly upset. This would make it very difficult for us to convince her to take them. With these, they are easy to swallow, do not upset her stomach, and she sees their effectiveness in how she feels. Even though we still have to encourage her to take her MV it is not such an effort as before. As stated in my review of Thorne'S Basic MV, I think the reason for us and her not getting upset stomachs like we use to from tablet based vitamins that use the lower grade vitamin Bs. Like I mentioned in my Thorne Basic MV review I find the vitamins absorb well and I can tell this because of the color of my urine. I plan on making these our staple MV as long as Thorne maintains their quality, integrity, and value. They are a pricey, but given that they have better quality of vitamins and minerals and it comes in a capsule it makes it worth it to us. The capsules are not large and they are easy to swallow. With regards to iHerb, they are a class act in their customer service and to me they have earned my business especially with their incentives and shipping cost. One thing I would encourage most reviewers to do is invest your time and try to provide more information on the products you purchase instead of just saying how great iHerb is. As for me and probably other reviewers and customers, having informative and honest product reviews enhances this community and enables iHerb to offer only the best and effective products to its customers. Remember, if they can reduce their inventory cost and only supply effective and high quality vitamins, we all win out. It is a true win-win.

Our 10 year old commented that she could tell a big difference in her energy level after taking 3 pills a day for 2 weeks. The pills are small and easy for her to swallow with milk. Compared to other children's vitamins with all the sugar, this one is very wholesome. Highly recommended.
Childrens multivitamins in gel capsules

Great product for high quality general purpose multivitamin for kids. We use these as a general multivitamin, recommended for Autistic kids (very very sensitive to supplement quality). Our kids (3 1/2+) can swallow these smaller than normal gel capsules, which is great as these can't be mixed with water or juice (taste bad like most multi's). You have to take many of these (we only do 3 each per day instead of the recommended 6) so the quantity in a bottle is great. A good general guideline when taking other supplements - it's good to include a multi as other supplements are likely to leech away some vitamins/minerals. The hope is that the multi limits any potential deficiencies.

My son takes these daily, tolerates them well on an empty stomach. Best quality multi-vitamin I have found.

My 13 year-old says that he is sleeping so much better since taking this! Seems to work.
Love these for my toddler..

We do 2 caps a day for our toddler. I mix the contents (very easy to get the powder out) into Trader Joe's apple yogurt because it has a low sugar content compared to most yogurts and she asks for her "ice cream" every morning! This is amazing since Ive spent a small fortune on supplements for her that had alot less vitamin content that she wouldnt touch. Gummi's hard chewables, liquid.. you name it. So excited that I can give her such a quality multi without a fight!

Best Children's Multi

This is the best children's multi that I have found after extensive research. It forms the foundation of my kids' nutritional protocol.

We are using this multi-vitamin for our two boys for one year and we are extremely satisfied. Excellent ingredients and we're mixing the content of each vcap through yoghurt. They don't notice the vitamins in the yoghurt and they don't have to swallow the capsules. Highly recommended.
