3.0 out of 5 starsNasty tasting, and not digestion-friendly.

Well......something of a mystery here. I have taken other vitamins for 50+ women and not had any problems. I ran out of my other (more expensive) multi-vitamins, and so decided to try these. I haven’t found them user-friendly. More specifically, I really dislike the taste, and I had the repeat burps for hours after taking the vitamins. It’s not a question of getting used to the vitamins. The burps are not backing off.
Are these problems related to the fact that these vitamins are not vegetarian? I don’t know. I have been a vegetarian for decades, and have always taken vegetarian vitamins. And the only obvious ingredient difference between the vitamins I used to take and these is, indeed, the fact that these are not gelatin-free.
The bottle claims to address your health concerns as you age. Looking at the label, not everything is covered 100%. Vitamin K is 25%. Biotin is 10%. There is no iron, but this is necessary since there is calcium and iron and calcium don't go together. Calcium is only 30%, a concern since bone density becomes more of a concern as we age. I am also bothered by the fact that the calcium in this is calcium carbonate, not calcium citrate. Carbonate is a cheaper form of calcium and if you don't have enough stomach acid (often a problem in the aging population), then you won't benefit from it at all. IF they are using the cheaper form of calcium, what else are they using the cheaper form for?
