In brief: Look at ingredients
Avoid artificial colors, all will have 800 to 1, 000 mg of Folic Acid but the ones that have methyl folate (folic acid) help persons who metabolize folate (folic acid) differently.
Also methyl cobalamine is the best b-12. Dha 200 mg a day is good for brain development. Vit d levels vary and the need for vit d varies . People experiencing more stress breakdown vit d. Taking additional vit d may be necessary.
