I like that Rainbow Light's Brain & Focus Multi is a food-base formula rather than something only concocted in the lab. This gives it better bio-availability and it is less harsh on you system. Many multis have given me an upset stomach if I don't eat food with them, but not these. That said, I'd still make sure I took these with a meal for better absorption. On that point, the daily dosage is broken down into 3 tablet a day, one with each main meal. This is another plus if you care about spreading out the nutrition over the course of a day rather than all at once.
Folks who just want a simple singe dose a day though may not like that. I suppose you could take 3 tablets at once, but I've not tried that and many of the vitamins could be consider mega-dosed at that point. And the Brain & Focus Multis are more expensive than your standard Centrum or generic multivitamin. Also, being food-based, they have a bit of a odor and slight flavor that may put some people off, though it was mild enough for me not to care. I didn't notice any special focus and concentration benefits after a month of taking these, nor any other improvement in health. Only the lack of any upset stomach. For that alone they are worth considering. If you don't want a large dose of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients, and you eat a healthy, varied diet, then you could take just one, maybe two, of these a day. Then I would say they are a very cost effective multivitamin.
