Whichever you choose you can be sure we’ve done our research! If you’re unsure which one is more suitable for you, please do contact our friendly Nutrition Advisors
who will be happy to help.
If you’re considering taking a multi it’s worth remembering that we have two multivitamins, Multi-Max Advance® and Multi-Max Complete®, both of which contain a concentrated extract of turmeric, the equivalent of 1g of turmeric powder.
