We use the Alive brand, that I get from Costco (cheaper than Walmart.) We use them because they have the highest dose of some important vitamins, such as K, which my wife needs.
is right in that most of the vitamins will be pissed away, but for older folks or sicker folks a multivitamin is good insurance. Most of us struggle to get all the needed vitamins.
Note that some vitamins will cause upset stomach (or so our doctors have told us) so a chewable vitamin might be an option. Easier to digest but the chewables will contain less vitamins than a tablet. And the liquid versions, which are the most bioavailable, contain less vitamins due to stability.
Make sure you take the vitamins with food, as the fat soluble vitamins such as A, D, E etc need fat to be absorbed. And taking with food will be less likely to upset your stomach. If have digestion problems, talk to your doctor because you might have difficulty digesting that hard tablets.
My doctor actually tests my Vitamin D levels and mine are low enough that he recommended Vitamin D-3 at 2000 mg/day.
You really cannot make a wrong choice here. If you have a medical issue, discuss with your doctor. Otherwise, take any brand that does not upset your stomach and that is easy or less expensive to purchase. And don't overdose. More is not better and the fat solubles can be toxic at high levels, especially if you have liver issues.
