>>How utterly irresponsible not to release the name of the product.
Exactly, I agree.
Centrum and One a day are synthetic garbage that your body cannot use.
Take a real whole food supplement like "Alive"
from Nature's Way. Take it for a year, and you be the judge.
Sure there are shady companies everywhere, but why would you not study the companies who make products for safety and efficacy.
>>why would I need 1333% percent daily value of ANYTHING?
Well, if you worked in a laboratory that did thousands of test on patient blood and urine samples BEFORE any supplements and AFTER, you would see that some people need 10x to 1000x as much of a mineral or vitamin or amino acid than someone else. This is no fallacy. This is science. State of the art labs.

There is a lot of garbage out there.
Calcium Carbonate is chalk...
Vitamin E , most comes from Eastman Kodak, as they do film processing using soybean oil, they sell the Alpha vitamin E. Problem is you body needs mixed tocopherols... alpha,beta,delta,gamma ...
Vitamin C in form of Ester C is garbage.
Should it is unregulated, but I don't want doctors being the ones prescribing vitamins as your choice will be synthetic garbage. By the way, 50% of medical schools only require medical students to take 1 nutrition class. Pharmaceutical companies are funding the medical schools. The FDA receives 80% of its funding for testing safety of efficacy on drugs from the pharmaceutical companies.
Also Glucosamine HCL (Hydrochloride) is garbage, while Glucosamine Sulfate is good.
