does anyone here take the garden of life brand vitamin code mutivitamin? i am considering buying and taking it sort of as a "catch-all", b/c sometimes my raw diet is not as varied as i think it ought to be. thanks!

No. I eat whole foods. Don't take dead, islolated nutrients. Nature knew best. Can't beat 'er.

Haven't used Vitamin Code yet, but Garden Of Life has many good quality supplements.

but you run a huge risk becoming unbalanced when taking multivitamins as you will already get a lot of vitamins with raw. The RDA's are out of whack anyways so unless you know for sure you're deficient in something or don't feel well from a lack of vitamins i don't know if you'd necessarily feel better taking a multi vitamin in case.
Also scientists have only discovered 10% of all vitamins and nutrients in food anyways, so we can't really rely on vitamins to supplement what we think we need. We get many great benefits from the foods we eat without knowing everything that is good about them.

what about the vega-brand powder stuff?

i've looked at them, even yesterday at the store i read the back of one of the whole foods supplements packs but there was so many things in it, i can't specifically remember but some of the last few ingredients were not food so i put it down. I think i am doing great right now, and if i start to feel worse instead of better the longer i am raw i will look into and get tested. If we didn't know about vitamins and supplements we wouldn't take them or think we needed them right? But because there are so many a lot of us think well i must need at least SOME of them right? But who knows because we're all at different stages of raw and have eaten differently our whole lives so that's pretty silly to use as a blanket statement.

i take New Chapter. they are organic, and made from whole food probiotics. very good stuff!
vitamins are a lot like politics. there are pro and con people. its a losing argument if you are on the other side.... im a pro. i take New Chapter and they are rocking!
