Yes, all the ingredients are within the upper safe limits for vitamin supplements. Many of the vitamins exceed the RDA as they are required by the body in higher concentrations to be effective. For example Vitamin E.

We would recommend that you switch your current multivitamin to Bioglan Multii’s.
If you compare your current multivitamin to a Bioglan multivitamin you will notice that Bioglan has a superior formulation.
We would not recommend taking another multivitamin alongside Bioglan Multi’s as many of the ingredients will overlap and you will unnecessarily be doubling up on certain nutrients, which is not advised.

In normal immediate release Glucosamine 1500mg tablets, almost all of the Glucosamine is released in under an hour. It only takes 1 hour to remove half of the glucosamine from the body (through urine or the stool), so the amount of Glucosamine available for the joints is only 13% of the original 1500mg. That is approximately 195mg. In Bioglan Sustained Release Glucosamine, the Glucosamine continues to be released into the lower intestine for up to 12 hours. Therefore more Glucosamine is available for a longer period of time.

Bioglan Super Fish Oil is enteric coated which means it’s not broken down in the stomach but in the intestine so there’s no fishy aftertaste as can be experienced with many other fish oil supplements.

RDA also know as the Recommended Daily Allowance, is the daily intake level of a nutrient that is considered to be sufficient to meet the requirements of 97–98% of healthy individuals. It is also known as RDI (Recommended Daily Intake). 100% RDA is the minimum you need to take in order to not be deficient in a nutrient. You will find that Bioglan products contain ingredients in quantities greater than 100% RDA. This is because some nutrients are required in higher levels than the RDA to have a therapeutic effect on the body. All ingredients are well within the upper safe levels for supplementation.
