Info: Available in either 180 Capsules or Tablets (Both Without Iron)
A comprehensive, highly concentrated multi-vitamin/multi- mineral and trace element supplement with over 30 essential nutritional ingredients carefully selected for their absorbability, low allergenic potential, optimal interaction with one another, and long-term safety.
If you just take a run-of-the-mill multivitamin to try to round out your nutritional needs, if you truly have deficiencies, you're apt to find you also need to top that up with a B-complex vitamin, plus a more potent or absorbable form of some individual vitamins or minerals (and it may take a lot of trial and error to find which you need), and perhaps an antioxidant formula, to boot. There's no need for that with Ultra Balance III, which is likely to be the only daily vitamin, mineral or antioxidant supplement most people need.
These two premium quality Ultra Balance III formulas differ in both the amounts per ingredient and the price; please consult the full ingredient lists in the notes below for both.
In sum, the tablets have about twice the concentration of each ingredient as the capsules, and they last longer, so you only need to take two tablets per day (compared to 6 capsules), which is reflected in their higher price.
