* This product has all of the non-essential nutrients that I require in a multi-vitamin, with a reasonable amount of calcium to boot. Also, it has no iron; since I'm a meat-eater that doesn't plan on bleeding out anytime soon, I really don't like the idea of consuming even more iron in my pills. This is an important difference between "store-brand" pills and others- most drug store products have iron, sometimes quite a bit. The price point-per-dose is reasonable, considering the extra herbal ingredients, though with little information regarding potency or "freshness" of the herbal components. Because of this, I typically disregard most of the "concentration" values for non-minerals, unless the company routinely tests vitamin batches. This, however, is very expensive and therefore very uncommon for a multivitamin, so I don't expect it.
The only downside I can think of is that you really can't take these on an empty stomach- which makes me wonder how much you absorb (in addition to the micronutrients in the food that you just ate) versus just passes through. However, since the recommended dose is 3/day, you can easily take one after each meal. Overall a good product, and one that I've used for years.

* I use this product rather than a single purpose prostate health supplement. It is slightly less effective but keeps my pipes open. It cost about the same as a single purpose supplement but you also get all the vitamins. A good value.
