Now I know that you should be getting as many of your nutrients as possible through diet, but I just tabulated my intake and usually fall short on a few of the B vitamins on days when I'm out.
I use the RDI as a rough gauge. It's unlikely to be a big deal, but for insurance I figured I'd take an occasional B complex to be safe.
What I don't get is why the dosages on almost every product are literally like 300%+ of the RDI? Seems a little overkill. I literally can't find one that isn't in a mega uber dose.
