After researching many vitamin products, I chose Opti-women because it is derived from all natural products, the minerals are chelated (which is necessary for absorption) and the price is very reasonable. For me this is the best product i`ve tried.

I've tried numerous vitamins but I keep coming back to these. I like the fact they are capsules so they can dissolve easier than tablets. They have a variety of nutrients and I always feel the positive effects when I take them. I highly recommend!

I'm often on the run and sometimes make food choices that aren't healthy. I thought that adding a daily multi-vitamin would be a good idea. I chose Optimum Nutrition's Opti-Women. Since it's designed to meet the needs of a woman I thought it would be a better choice than a general vitamin. I am happy that I chose these. They have seemed to strenghten my immune system because I've been sick less often and I just feel better.
