If you're going through all the expense of taking fat-soluble nutrients – Like vitamin E (alpha, beta, delta and gamma Tocopherols & alpha, beta, delta and gamma Tocotrienols) vitamin D3 & vitamin K2... High Quality Omega 3 & High Quality Organic Evening Primrose Oil & CoQ10... and all those powerful antioxidant carotenoids – like Lycopene, Lutein, Zeaxanthin, Meso-zeaxanthin and Astaxanthin... than you need to make sure that you are getting the most bang out of them – by absorbing them properly. And that's where Ox Bile comes in. It gets those nutrients into your bloodstream – where they can do you some good.

The highest quality oils – always offer the most nutrients. Compare the Vitamin A and E level of this Red Palm Oil – to other Red Palm Oils. Can you see the difference? The devil is always in the details. And if it's higher in Vitamin A and E, it's also higher in all the other carotenoids – because that's just the nature of things. The Red Palm fruit is steamed before pressing. But this actually enhances the extraction of vital nutrients – by breaking down the cellulose walls that encapsulate them... same way as steaming a carrot, enhances the release of its nutrients. Think about it. Yes, there's a reason it's done that way. Anyway – this is the one I use, and it's super-duper, full of goodness.

I had always felt slightly cold in late November through February, when the cold sea air comes down from the Norwegian Sea. But then I discovered these lovely little tablets, and now my body-thermostat regulates my temperature properly, and I can go outside in the bitter-wind of winter and still feel warm. And I can dial down my thermostat by ten degrees – and still produce all the heat I need, without feeling cold at all. I take three a day, when the temperature drops below freezing. Or four a day, when it becomes extremely cold. And my body produces heat like a little furnace. I can have my windows open in January and the cold doesn't phase me. In summer, I have no need of taking these. But in winter, this is one of those strange things, that makes all the difference – to your quality of life. Especially, if you live in Northern Latitudes.

The flushed skin sensation is something I actually enjoy, and look forward to. It's the very reason I use this form of Niacin – because it dilates the capillaries. And it's the opening-up of those capillaries, which allows increased circulation of nutrients and oxygen. So I take a capsule two or three times a day, depending on the number of meals I eat. I take it with my “Thorne Research Basic Nutrients IV with Copper and Iron,” and other supplements – to insure that my nutrients get delivered to every cell in the body. For that alone – it's worth its weight in gold. But as a bonus, I also find that it's an incredible mood booster, easing the mind and relaxing the lungs – which makes for restful sleep, especially when taken with L-Tryptophan. When I want to rev up my methylation cycle – to increase my cognitive powers, I take a high-dose of methyl-B12 and methyl-folate. When I want to dampen the methylation cycle – for relaxation purposes, this 1000 mg Niacin capsule is my go-to formula.

This makes for a wonderful well-rounded herbal nootropic, and helps to rejuvenate the adrenal glands – which our often overstressed in our modern society. I add a teaspoon or two, along with four organic raw egg yolks (a naturally rich source of choline) to my Hawaiian Spirulina/Flaxseed smoothie. If I wish to further increase the nootropic effects, I add 50mg of MRM Pregnenolone, 500mg of NOW Foods DMAE, 500mg of NOW Foods Pantothenic Acid, 1000mg of Primaforce Acetyl L-Carnitine, and two Country Life Coenzyme B-Complex Caps. Taken together – it's like being on a rail at full speed – the mind becomes razor-sharp, without having to resort to a morning coffee fix, sparing the adrenal glands of caffeine-driven over-stimulation.

I must have tried about a dozen different multi-vitamins brands – but I always come back to this one, because it's beautifully balanced and it works. Throw in some vitamin K2 from one of the Life Extension formulas... some extra Vitamin D3... some extra vitamin C with Bioflavonoids... some extra CoQ10... some Now Kelp Powder for Iodine and trace minerals(and Kelp also has beautiful detoxification properties)... some Pure Essence Super D-K Calcium Plus – for Calcium & Magnesium... a high-quality bottle of liquid Norwegian Cod Liver Oil – by Twinlab, Carlson or Nature's Answer... some high-quality Evening Primrose Oil – by Carlson, Source Naturals or Barlean's... and you've got the beginnings of a beautiful foundation. Update: Source Naturals has developed a new multivitamin formula called “Source Naturals, Life Force, Healthy Aging” - which is now the better formula, with superior anti-oxidant capacity, with 3X more Lutein, 4X more Astaxanthin, 66% more Lycopene, and now with added Zeaxanthin... not to mention more N-Acetyl Cysteine, added N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine, more Resveratrol, added L-Carnosine, 2.2 X more alpha-Lipoic Acid & R-Lipoic Acid, added Glucosamine, more Silymarins for detoxification, 20% more Choline for methylation, 66% more MSM, 150% more Coenzyme Q10, 33% more DMAE, added Vinpocetine and 100% more Ginkgo for enhanced cognitive function, and a host of other tweaks.

I don't mind swallowing tablets or capsules myself – but my wife absolutely hates it, so I have to find her powders and chewables and gummies, in nearly every supplement category. For the Multi-Vitamin category, this is the one that she likes the best. And it's probably the most comprehensive of all the chewables, and believe me – I've looked at all of them. And I don't have to do a big song and dance to get her to take them. In fact, she always reminds me when she's run out of them, as she's become quite fond of them. They're not exactly steak and lobster, but I've crunched on a few of them myself and they don't taste half-bad. If you're the type of person that gets all fidgety when it comes time to swallowing pills, than these chewables could be for you.

I love this stuff. It has an excellent balance of nutrients and I love the sour-lemonade taste. I take it before bed and it makes me sleep like a baby. Prior to this, I was using “Magnesium Serene” by Source Naturals before bed, but it tended to clump when mixing it. This one dissolves straight away – and it tastes better too. And not only that – but it has a complement of added nutrients which aren't found in the Magnesium Serene product. I haven't tried the Orange-Vanilla Flavor yet, but I'm definitely going to try that one too. I like the nice balance of nutrients in this product.

I like this formula. It's one of the three multivitamin formulas on my rotation schedule. However, when taking this formula – I also like to add “Life Extension, Only Trace Minerals” for the extra Zinc, Copper, Manganese, Chromium, Molybdenum, Boron, and Vanadium. It compliments the formula very nicely... and for a 60 Day supply of daily vitamins at this price – you can hardly go wrong. I rotate this formula with “Thorne Research, Basic Nutrients IV” & “Doctor's Best, Best Multiple.” All three brands of multivitamins are Folic Acid free – and contain only real Methyl folate. Something I now look for in a multivitamin.
