    I'm beginning to wonder if our body even digests multivitamins. This topic is still being debated.

    Get yourself a copy of the comparitive guide of nutritional supplements. Its alarming to find that a lot of the multi vits we take today are even less that 25% bioavailable to the body. The only one that i've found that is decent is USANA which is ~75% bioavailable.

    If your urine turns yellow, that's GOOD. Take that as confirmation that the vitamin DID break down and was absorbed into your bloodstream as it's supposed to. That's the only way it'd get there - vitamins cant go directly from the stomach to the bladder!

    If you're concerned about absorption, get a multi in a capsule, from a name brand company, and always take it with food. Such a product will have been tested to make sure it dissolves at pH levels at or above stomach fluid pH.

    Never take them on an empty stomach or in the absence of solid food (ie not a protein shake alone)

    Skip tablets, especially those from drugstore, supermarket or unknown brands.
