Which formula is right for you? Dr. Whitaker helps you decide.

I get this question a lot: Which formula should I take, Forward Plus or Forward Gold? Forward Plus, a high-potency, broad-based multivitamin and mineral formula, is my flagship product, and I believe it is the best daily multinutrient supplement on the market. That said, I recognize that older people are particularly concerned about cognitive function and bone strength. That’s what inspired me to formulate Forward Gold. It’s not only a great multi—with robust levels of antioxidants, B-complex vitamins, minerals, and fish oil—but it also addresses these special concerns. For brain health, Forward Gold contains citicholine, which has been shown to enhance memory and attention, and methylcobalamin, the form of vitamin B12 that is most active in the brain. For bone health, I added extra vitamin D (for a total of 2,000 IU) and a more bioavailable form of calcium.

If you are concerned about brain or bone health, Forward Gold is the selection you should probably make. Otherwise, I recommend you stick with Forward Plus.
