What is the difference between the multiple formulas NOW® carries?
NOW carries an excellent array of multi-vitamin formulas. Some are formulated for specific needs, while others are general use multiples that are suitable for most individuals. Some of our formulas are designed to help minimize the daily consumption of pills, such as Special One. NOW offers many formulas in both tablet and capsule form, including products free of animal-sourced ingredients in liquids, chewables or VCaps for our vegetarian customers.

Why do your multi-vitamins contain such small amounts of Potassium?
Based on protecting users of certain drugs, the FDA has issued regulations that prohibit dietary supplement manufacturers from exceeding 99mg of potassium in a dietary supplement. For proper potassium intake, consult a certified nutritionist or your doctor.
Have you done any studies on the bioavailability of your ADAM multivitamin?
Each type of tablet that we sell is tested to insure proper disintegration. This special attention is given to tablets because their ingredients and hardness are more difficult to control than standard gelatin capsules or Vcaps that have more standard disintegration times.
