Multiple vitamins help to bridge the nutrient gap in our daily diets. In today's world of processed foods and fast-paced lifestyles, many of us do not get the daily recommended allowance of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Multiple vitamins can help fill in the areas lacking in our diets, and are formulated to provide a broad range of nutrition. Special Two gets its name from the 2-pill-twice-per-day format that helps to provide higher dosages of key nutrients, provides a wider array of nutrients, and spreads the dosage out to improve absorption and product performance. The “Special” part of this multiple is that it includes a group of nutrients from whole green foods and herbals not commonly associated with a vitamin-mineral formula. Capsule format improves absorption.
