Swing by the vitamin section of your local pharmacy and you’ll literally feel like you’ve walked into a wall. From vitamin A to 12 forms of B, C, D2, D3, multivitamin packs, herbal supplements, oils and more, it's easy to get intimidated. How can you blast through all the fancy labels and find exactly what you’re looking for?
Well, I'm not a nutritional, but here are the three biggest things I was looking for in a vitamin. These three are what lead me to finally select "Pure Vitamin Club" (disclaimer, I am in NO WAY affiliated with this product...I won't get a single penny if you decide to try it yourself!).
First, I want a capsule, not a tablet. Here's why.
Second, as mentioned above, I don't want any fillers or additives! This means wheat, corn, dairy, artificial colors (why do I need titanium dioxide in my vitamin...keep it in my sunscreen please), or other additives.
Third, it has to be affordable. I don't want to spend 3 billion dollars on supplements every year. There are a lot of really great products out there. Thorne, Klean Athlete, Dr. Mercola, and many more make some great products, but their pricey! Pure Vitamin club is about $10 per month.
Finally, I can say from experience that I feel better when I'm taking this vitamin. Unlike several others I've had in the past, I can take these on a completely empty stomach without issue. I don't look like I'm peeing orange after taking them and their auto ship program makes it easy to always have them on hand.

UPDATE: I had previously indicated in this blog that Pure Vitamin Club wasn't NSF certified. As you can see in the comments section below, they are! Appreciate the founder of the company taking the time to leave a note. Great guy, great product!
