I use vitamineral green and give each kid a tsp. a day. A multi contains (in theory) all your vitamins and mineral for the day. THe problem is they don't all work synergistically...so even if you got a GREAT multi that has everything you needed and was unfragmented and food based-certain mineral will inhibit the absorption of certain vitamins and vice versa. Soooo, what are you really getting? With a greens powser you are getting the mineral and sometimes the B vitamins that are perfectly compatible. A good supplement is totally food derived and recognizable to the body so it is quickly and efficiently used.
