Keep Out of Reach of Children
I am curious about the difference between the regular Optimal Multivitamin and the chewable version. I have been taking 8 regular multivitamins daily and the chewable says to only take 2. There is also a price difference. What is the difference?
The Optimal multi in general has higher amounts of vitamins and minerals, amino acids, bioflavonoids, fruits and herbs, compared to the chewable version. Note that both contain 400mcg of the Metafolin (L-5-MTHF). Serving sizes and ingredients vary product to product. (Posted on 11/26/12)
One of my sons takes this everyday, no hassle. I feel good knowing he's getting these nutrients to help fill in any gaps he may have in his diet (toddler eating habits!). I would love it even more if it didn't have magnesium stearate in it but all-in-all it is the best children's multi I have found!

NOTE FROM DR LYNCH:
It is very difficult to make chewable tablets without magnesium stearate. All of Seeking Health capsules are free of magnesium stearate - as are all our powders. We also would like our chewables and sublingual tablets to be free of magnesium stearate - in time we'll get there. (Posted on 10/17/12)
Finally I have found a multivitamin for my kids with the active forms of folate and B12!!! We have a family history of MTHFR and it is so important to me that I give my kids good a good vitamin without fillers, added sugar, and food coloring. Love that they only have to take 2 of these a day and they don't mind them at all!!!! (Posted on 10/17/12)
Thank you for your inquiry. The flavour is common in medicines to disguise unpleasant flavours.Liquorice affects the body's endocrine system as it contains isoflavones (phytoestrogens). It might lower the amount of serum testosterone slightly in men, but whether it affects the amount of free testosterone is unclear.
Have a great day :)
It is always recommended to talk with your doctor.
In terms of safety, if you use a 1/2 tablet with breakfast, that would be a good start. Always give with food. If you see that 1/2 tablet works well, then you may give another 1/2 tablet with lunch.
Hi Tulin -
I am with you on getting the Optimal Multivitamin Chewable made without magnesium stearate. I will talk with my lab to see if we can do this sooner than later. This multivitamin has increased in popularity so I may now be able to do it.
Chewables are difficult to make without magnesium stearate - but I will put my head down and work it out.
I estimate it taking about 3 to 6 months.
While we are talking about making some changes to this chewable multivitamin, is there anything else you'd like to see improved with it? Nutrients added? Removed? Increased?
