    Still a way to go to reach true equality, where men have a similar life expectancy to women (currently about 10 years less). But i supppose this won't change whilst women have an ever increasing raft of screening treatments so they can live even longer , and hog the NHS. Its a shame women on the whole won't champion men's issues the same as men have for theirs, and convieniently ignore facts like this.

    Good deal by the way.

    The content of these is listed here:
    http://www.vitabiotics.com/Wellman/wellman_formula.aspx

    The only "interesting" content these contain is Co-enzyme Q10 & L-Carnitine but the amount is so low, as to be totally pointless!

    I would wonder the wisdom of routinely supplementing iron in men at all, the Magnesium is so low, (and oral absorption is so low with Mg) that I would be surprised if ANY gets through, perhaps the same for vitamin B12 too, it's hard to get it orally, and it also doesn't say WHICH form it is, so for that reason, I wouldn't bother.

    As a low strength Zinc (& copper) supplement with the benefit of some more general or everyday vitamin content I suppose 3 for a tenner is OK, but they are a bit unimpressive to me, and the "normal" price is nothing short of highway robbery!

    Better still... eat a healthy balanced diet and you won't need to take multi-vits in the first place! ;)

    Its a shot in the dark, but what about old people?

    I'm thinking of having a sex change at 60 to get those extra years

    Agree with nihcaj above it's hard to get it orally.

    In an ideal world yes. and even in simplistic terms, I would have agreed with you years ago, but it's simple, we just don't absorb some things very well. and as you get older, some very necessary minerals and vitamins just drop and drop in levels. All very measurable too. Of course eat well, it makes a lot of difference too, while most people are not actually dying of low vitamins and minerals, many have much lower than optimum levels. One thing for certain, we haven't evolved to keep up with our change in eating habits, nor our ability to live so long :-(

    Magnesium and vitamin D3 being the obvious, and the commonest things to be low - British wheat used in bread making now (as opposed to Canadian wheat in the past) is very low in Mg, and it's really hard to absorb anyway, so a VAST proportion of British (and northern hemisphere) people are low in Mg.

    Vitamin D3, well again it's about latitude as well as sun exposure - fine if you live in the tropics, but we are LONG way north here, and deficiency is common.

    Eat "trendy" low fat diets, and the problem can be very significant, vit D3 in particular, in my own case, it was probably the reason I had such measurably LOW D3, and I now NEED 10,000iu a day to keep even moderate levels.... in the past those levels were thought to be TOXIC, but I need this just to be "normal"!!

    Take no notice of those long out of date "RDI" figures, which when tested and defined were based on samples using a wide range of people of all ages and types, which included old and ill people, base levels on OPTIMUM levels taken from studying young, optimally well and fit people, and then you might change your mind like I HAD to with my low D and Mg levels!

    One thing is clear though, the fancy expensive "multi" supplements are generally pretty feeble, and not necessarily containing what you may need.

    Good price but I stopped buying these years ago and switched to supermarket own brand - Tesco do vitamins for mens health range and almost identical content to these except the Iron (which is debatable anyhow). Always on 3 for 2 at Tesco so were costing £7 for 3 boxes of 30 or 3 months supply up until a few weeks ago but they have gone up to £4 a box, but still £2 cheaper than these even at this price.
