Douglas Labs' Basic Preventive 2 (Iron and Copper Free) is different from a lot of the other multivitamins out there. For instance‚ Basic Preventive 2 multivitamin features essential minerals & trace elements‚ bioflavonoids‚ and many more potentially helpful ingredients.

A quick word on "essential" nutrients. In essence‚ for any nutrient to be labeled "essential‚" it must (a) be absolutely necessary for us to maintain our health; and (b) our body can't be able to produce it naturally. In most cases‚ in order to give our body the essential nutrients it needs‚ we must do so through dietary means. Now‚ a lot of our diets may not be as nutritionally optimal as they need to be‚ which is why Basic Preventive 2 can be so beneficial‚ because it's a quick and easy way to potentially give your body some of the essential nutrients it needs.

Essential Vitamins

Douglas Labs' Basic Preventive 2 features some pretty important vitamins like vitamin C‚ which is often used for immune system boosting‚ but it also exhibits other benefits - like collagen production and regulation. Basic Preventive 2 also features several forms of vitamin B‚ which may help support blood cell health and other functions.

Essential Minerals & Trace Elements

By featuring several types of minerals‚ Basic Preventive 2 is formulated to support a variety of health-related facets. For example‚ by including calcium‚ Douglas Labs' Basic Preventive 2 supports bone health‚ nerve signals‚ certain functions of the immune system‚ and more. Other crucial minerals include magnesium‚ zinc‚ selenium‚ potassium‚ and more.


These substances are actually plant chemicals that may have some helpful health benefits‚ the most well-known of which is its possible antioxidant properties.

These are only a handful of what you'll find in Douglas Labs' Basic Preventive 2 (Iron and Copper Free). For the full list of great ingredients‚ click the "Ingredients" tab above.

      Don't leave home without it...

      from Pittsburgh on 7/03/2017
      I've been taking Basic Preventive 2 (Iron and Copper Free) by Douglas Laboratories for at least 20 years, and it is by far the best multivitamin I've ever taken (and I've tried lots, from cheap to expensive). The amounts and formulations of vitamins in this product are stellar-the B vitamins are in readily assimilated form, and the different options are a selling point as well. I get the iron and copper free, with raw glandulars added, because it addresses my particular health needs. There are other formulations that may appeal to specific nutritional needs. When I don't take these, I drag, best vitamin for the money.


      Assimilation, variety of formulas, quality of individual vitamins


      Wish it were a little cheaper but I'd pay for them anyway, they're so good. A little large for those who have swallowing issues; I don't, so don't go by me.

      6 Tablets a Day

      from South Park Pa on 3/21/2017
      I bought the Basic Prevention 2 (Iron and Copper Free) by Douglas Laboratories and feel that Douglas Labs is a pretty good company. I like that the tablets are a little shorter. The dosage says to take 6 per day. I feel like that is just too many so I've been taking 2 or 4. So far I have no complaints.


      Shorter sized tablet


      6 per day dosage
