Pros: Contains no iron
Contains no Vitamin K
100% RDV of most vitamins
Cons: Difficult to find
I always purchased multivitamins with only the recommended daily values, such as One a Day Multiple Vitamins Essential. Now, there is no such animal on pharmacy shelves. Recently, all I could locate were designer vitamins such as Womens’ Vitamins and Men’s Vitamins with ingredients I questioned and would not be comfortable with my husband or me ingesting.
I obtained advice from my Rite Aid Pharmacist. I told him I was seeking a multiple vitamin without minerals, no Vitamin K, and only the required daily values. He went behind the shelves of medicine bottles and pulled out a bottle of Rugby Daily-Vite.
Rugby Daily-Vite is a daily multiple vitamin supplement which is compared to One A Day Essential Vitamins which I can no longer locate.
There are 100 tablets contained in a cloudy, see-through plastic bottle. The bottle has a yellow twist off cap. The tablets are red in color and measure 3/8” in diameter.
Rugby Daily-Vite contains the following vitamins in 100% recommended daily values for overall health and wellness:
Thiamin (Vitamin B-1)
Ribovlavin (Vitamin B-2)
Folate (folic acid)
Rugby Daily-Vite contains only 60% of Vitamin A (acetate and betacarotene) and only 2% of calcium.
The directions state adults are to take one tablet daily with a meal.
I was glad that my pharmacist recommended Rugby Daily-Vite, for I had been seeking a replacement for One A Day Essential vitamins for a while. My husband has CAD and he refrains from taking iron and Vitamin K. Iron supplementation is not recommended for someone with CAD, nor is Vitamin K which makes the blood clot. I refrain from taking Vitamin K due to having afib which puts me at a higher risk of stroke. Rugby Daily-Vite contains no iron or Vitamin K.
Rugby Daily-Vite daily multiple vitamins are found behind the pharmacy counter at Rite Aid. When my pharmacy does not have any in stock, my pharmacist places a special order for me.
When I take the vitamin with a meal, I experience no stomach upset.
A bottle of Rugby Daily-Vite multiple vitamin supplements costs $4.00.
Nearly half of adults in the U.S. take multivitamins whether they need them or not. Some doctors refrain from prescribing daily supplements if their patients are eating a healthy diet; however, in this day and age it can be difficult to eat three nutritious meals a day. I feel better when my husband and I take a daily multiple vitamin such as Rugby Daily-Vite to supply the key nutrients our bodies need.
