Freeda Vitamins Question



I've seen you recommend both Quin B Strong and Iron-Free Ultra Freeda.  Is this an either/or thing, or do you recommend that people take both (the Ultra as all-around general-purpose multi, with the Quin added to boost the B's)?

I've evolved myself as time went on.  I hate to see someone taking only l mineral supplement as I feel taking only calcium can disrupt the balance between so many other essential ones.  Freeda Ulta Freeda (they recommend 3 per day) I feel meet our needs (my husband and me) (we take only one but two wouldn't hurt) along with Quin B Strong with zinc and vitamin C.  If you sat down and added all the amounts which you total by taking both one Quin B Strong with zinc and one Ultra Freeda without iron you would find you would be taking a very conservative amount of all the vitamins and some very important minerals.  The slippery coat on both had me worried for a while as for people on SCD.  I do not think the easy-to-swallow (slippery) ones can do us any harm but  at first, I worried about it as the Quin B Strong without zinc had a more aspirin-like coating (not slippery).  These are all fairly minor things which I have worried about, have checked out time and time again and then go ahead and forget what Dr. Zimmerman told me about the slippery coat.  But when someone starts taking only one mineral, I get concerned about imbalances.  So if I do not sound concise about some of these things, I am doing the best I can and may even change my mind again.
