Extremely Helpful Been taking this MVI with 2000 & 3000 Iu's of Vit D3 for several years. I was a bit turned off when the "recipe" changed in 2021, creating the Suphur smell, but I'm over it; it's for Vit B12. Mr Lessman continuously makes this & all his supplements better. I gave this to my Diabetic, lethargic cab driver in July '21, who is 62, & cannot eat well driving all time, Since taking this, he says his energy is much improved. I also gave to my 89 year old friend May, 2022, who doesn't eat, is depressed, has high blood pressure & Cholesterol, with hair falling out. After 2 days of this MVI, she said she gets out of bed now, dresses, eats, goes out, & feels much better overall. She feels like Living again. After 2 weeks, she reported her hair stopped falling out & her facial skin has less blotches. I see her often; we live on same floor in my apt building. This is great.

Amazing vitamin!! I have been waiting forever it seems for a pet/dog product and while I have been waiting I decided to use the multi vitamin for my German shepherd. My dog is on a raw diet and previously on a high end kibble, and he consistently had the worst skin issues with crusts erupting everywhere. Vets could do nothing except put him on medications that have side effects and he was only getting worse for two years or more. I final decided to try Andrews multi vitamin, glucosamine chondroitin, marine collagen peptides and additional magnesium to calm his nervous system and within a couple months the crusting stopped and now it’s been about 6-7 months and his skin is beautiful and perfect and he smells normal again. He can also go up and down stairs again. I look forward to the pet formula but I’m so happy that i have these wonderful supplements. I trust them for me so why not my large dog! Thank you Andrew!

Excellent Product I've been using Andrew Lessman's vitamins for years and I swear by them. I've tried others over the years when I've run out and been waiting for my new order to arrive...other products are just not the same. These may be a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for...a high quality product that you will be happy with. The powdered form make them easy to digest and easier for the body to assimilate, and they don't repeat on you.

Smell Funny I just wanted to say these are really great vitamins and I had bought the very large bottle last year thinking it would get me through the year ..... well after a couple of months I had to throw the whole bottle out because it smelled so bad/ to me it was a wasted money that I don't have extra of being on social security - I did go and try a different brand of vitamins but they didn't work as well as the Essential 1, so I have gone back to the ProCap vitamin only now buying at a month supply (30 caps) instead of the 360 caps, and I keep them in the freezer instead of the cupboard - it seems to be keeping the smell away and keeping them fresher. I have tried many products of Andrew Lessman/ the vitamins, some of the extra supplements and the Vanilla Secure complete Meal Replacement. I do wish there was a Green Drink supplement with Kale, veggies etc.
