Multivitamin PLUS Vital Minerals
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  1. Q: Why do I need to take 8 capsules a day? That seems like a lot!
    A: Totally understandable… But it's unlikely that one single tablet could hold enough vitamins and minerals to support your health.* This may be possible with synthetic ingredients made in a lab, but synthetic vitamins may not be absorbed as well as nutrients from whole foods.

    We can compress ingredients to some extent, but not to the point where everything you need is in one pill. "One-a-day" pills are generally missing essential ingredients or rely on lab-made synthetics.

  2. Q: What is the shelf life?
    A: 2 years when stored in a cool, dry place.

  3. Q: Where and how should I store this?
    A: Store in a cool dry place at room temperature.

  4. Q: What is the tablet made of?
    A: It is a tablet which does not have any shell or coating.

  5. Q: Is it gluten-free?
    A: The Whole-Foods Multivitamin Plus Vital Minerals is not completely gluten-free because it contains wheat grass and barley juice. However, we have replaced the wheat grass and barley juice in the Multivitamin Plus Vital Minerals for Women, so the women's formula is gluten free.

    A: Multivitamin Plus Vital Minerals is for individuals 18 years and older unless told otherwise by your health care provider. Children should take Children's Chewables. You can find more information here.

    A: The Whole-Food Multivitamin contains a blend of whole food fruits, vegetables, herbs and green foods in addition to vitamins and minerals. The whole food ingredients can vary in color slightly from season to season so each batch of Whole-Food Multivitamins may vary in shade. The various colored specs are from the minerals and are distributed throughout the tablet. These are all normal variations with the product.
