I've been taking Mark Sisson's Damage Control Master Formula now for over a year and I absolutely love it. What I don't love is shelling out $129 a month for it. I went on a quest to find a multivitamin with a phytonutrient and antioxidant profile similar if not better than Damage Control yet substantially cheaper in price. After hours of searching I came across Source Natural's Men's Life Force Multiple. For about $45 a month the nutritional profile was very impressive and the potency seemed quite higher than that of DCMF. The following are links to the nutritional info on each vitamin. Please take a look and give me any thoughts as to if the SNMLF is actually a more substantial product at a better price than DCMF.

I understand multivitamins are a highly debated topic among the paleo community. But I just cant justify the time and effort required to balance all of my whole food choices to make sure that I am hitting all of my vitamin goals, so that is why I take a multivitamin.

I really don't think the evidence is there for taking a general multivitamin. Most of the research shows that only a tiny fraction is absorbed and that people who take multivitamins actually live SHORTER lives.
I take magnesium, d3, b12 (I have a diagnosed absorption problem), fish oil and Juice Plus (concentrated fruits and vegetables in a capsule, the most well-researched single brand of nutritional product on the market).
