[Amazon.ca] [amazon.ca] jamieson multivitamin for Men - $7.68

This particular multivitamin appears to be on sale on amazon.
good as a filler too if you need $35 for free shipping
the other types (ie. adult, women, etc) do not seem to have the same discount

I wonder if the expiry is soon and that's why it's discounted so much.

Not usually discounted due to exp dates. Its due to price matching vs other stores. If it were to expire soon, it will be sold in the warehouse.

The no tax though, i have no clue. Some products on amazon do sell without taxes...

I'm perplexed by the tax situation with Amazon. I thought it was weird how my order for a couple fans for example didn't get hit with tax, but a couple days later I ordered some lotion and it was. Although I want to see I've seen this before and Amazon can adjust for the taxes once the order ships. I miss the days old days of PST/GST when online orders coming from outside of Ontario weren't hit with tax.

the 225 pack of equate multis at walmart is regular price nearly the exact same as this deal on subscribe and save, technically like .3 of a penny difference in favour of this jamieson per pill...

Such a non fan of multivitamins.

IMO aim for at least...
Vitamin D (especially in winter)
Zinc (take with food. Good for libido, but other than that I find it's good for recovering from sickness/prevention).
Magnesium (various forms so do your research, but I use the energy boosting one and feel it helps)

Not for everyone, but I like Niacin for that nice tingly flush.

Thanks. Vitamins are very important... 1 a day. You definitely don't get enough in your food, and also not enough vitamins in your multi-vitamin, so you can supplement it with other stand-alone vitamins

As with any multivitamin, make sure you need everything that's in there. For example, if you have too much iron, or hemochromatosis, like one in 300 or 80 000 Canadians do, this can seriously hurt and eventually kill you. I believe there are multivitamins with no iron available.

I noticed the ones at Superstore today, selling at the same price, were expiring in July 2020. I really hope what I ordered from Amazon gives me a lot more shelf life.

Price is not bad especially since it's shipped to you. In comparison the Kirkland Men's vitamins (and senior men's) is $19.99 for 365 tablets in store and I think it drops on sale to $16.99 sometimes.

Costco sells multivitamins for less than 0.06 each, these are 0.09! Pick them up in the store and on sale, they are even cheaper. Costco has many different vitamins at much cheaper prices than anywhere else and Jamieson products are way over priced.

I've tried to research the benefits of multivitamins in the past, and couldn't really nail down a firm consensus. But from what I read, I came to the conclusion that they, at best, don't do anything beneficial for your body. And, at worst, can be harmful.

Costco multis use animal sourced gelatin. I can't consume that. Jamieson is one of the few multis on the market with full coverage and good price on sale (like this).

This seems to be the consensus. I could not find any reputable studies showing benefits of multi vitamins. Quite a few found then harmful for long term use, likely because some vitamins can become toxic when taken in excessive amounts. It is best to get a blood test done to see if you have any deficiencies and either adjust your diet or take respective single vitamins as needed.

What's a good zinc supplement? Zinc sulfate specifically?

FYI, in case this is an issue for you as well:

Question: Hi are they vegan/vegetarian?
Answer: The 100% Complete multivitamins are not vegan as they contain Vitamin D3 sourced from lanolin.
