Multivitamins Part 3: Alive! Multivitamins 101

Now you know all about the vitamins and minerals you should find in your multi and you’ve decided to start taking one to help support your overall health, but you’re still a little overwhelmed with all the options. Which formula is right for you? Are the men’s and women’s formulas really that different? Is a liquid better than a gummy, or should you be taking a traditional tablet? We know the feeling, and we’re here to help you navigate not just the vitamin aisle, but your wellness routine too.

What Makes Alive!® Multivitamins So Great?

These are just a few of the reasons we stand out from the rest:

  • Our multivitamins contain the full B-vitamin complex to help convert food into energy.*
  • Our formulas focus on getting you more vitamins and minerals at 100% or more of the recommended daily value than competitors.[1]
  • We use food-based blends to supercharge our premium multis, including the Orchard Fruits™ and Garden Veggies™ powder blend.
  • Alive!® gummies are made with fruit-based pectin, not gelatin.

Gummies, Liquids, And Tablets … Which One Is Best for Me?

Alive!® Multivitamins come in a handful of different formats to appeal to a wide variety of preferences and personal choices. Here’s what to know about each one:

  • Gummies and chewables are delicious and easy to take. Alive!® gummy multis come in fruity flavors you’ll enjoy taking each day, making it easy to remember. They’re available for Men, Men 50+, Women, Women 50+, Adults, Kids, Immune, B-Complex, Hair, Skin & Nails, and Prenatal. We also offer Children’s Chewables.
  • Liquid is a convenient, citrus-flavored way to get your daily dose of multivitamin. You can take the recommended two tablespoons straight, or mix it into smoothies, shakes, or water — whatever you prefer!
  • Tablets and capsules should be swallowed, preferably with food and water. Tablets tend to look more like what you think of as a “traditional” vitamin, with an earthy vibe, whereas capsules are coated.
  • Softgels are similar to capsules, but they’re filled with liquid. Prenatal, Complete Prenatal, Hair, Skin & Nails, Stress Less, and Fatigue Fighter are available in softgel form. Most softgels are made with gelatin, but one exception is the Complete Premium Prenatal Multi, which is a vegetarian softgel.

Reach Your Wellness Goals

Which potency is best for your day-to-day life? While it may look intimidating to see 200-300% of the recommended daily value of a certain vitamin or mineral on the back of your bottle, think of it this way: the recommended daily value is the minimum amount necessary to meet essential nutrient requirements. We’ve created ultra-potency formulas to help you reach your wellness goals.

Premium Formulas

For the ultimate in nutrition and energy, we offer premium formulas with maximum potencies to help you take advantage of each day. Our Ultra and Max formulas are packed with more vitamins and minerals, as well as special food-based powder blends (like Energy & Endurance or Mind & Body Energy) to keep you thriving.

Alive!® Ultra formulas unite high potency and convenience with a once-daily dose. For example, Women’s Once Daily Ultra Potency tablets contain 100% or more DV of 20 vitamins and minerals, and 200% or more DV of 12 vitamins and minerals. Just one daily tablet features the following special blends:

  • Cardio
  • Hair, Skin & Nails
  • CranRx
  • Flax Lignan
  • Daily Greens
  • Digestive Enzyme
  • Mushroom Mycelial & Primordia Biomass Defense
  • Orchard Fruits/Garden Veggies

Max 3 and Max 6 formulas are the highest potency multis we make. They offer 100% or more DV of 20 vitamins and minerals, 200% or more DV of 12 vitamins and minerals, and 300% or more DV of 8 vitamins and minerals. (Wow!) One serving is 3 or 6 tablets daily, respectively.

Special Formulas for Special Wellness Needs

There’s no one in the world just like you, so we’ve developed a handful of special formulas to give you just what you need, including:

We hope this helps you find which multivitamin is best for you – and you learned all about the good stuff we pack into our multis to help you thrive!
