In brief: Possibly toxic sugar

Ecodrink becomes a liquid multivitamin when added to water. It has small amounts of additional antioxidants.
As best as i can tell, it has synthetic vit e which i believe is unhealthy but my biggest concern is it has the artificial sweetener sucralose, which, while approved by the fda, may be rather toxic. I avoid products with sucralose.See http://www.Holisticmed.Com/splenda/bowen.Html & comment:.

I'm not sure why a multivitamin has to taste like a sweet fruity drink. Also, the amounts of some of the vitamins in EcoDrink are rather minimal. I recommend taking a quality multivitamin in capsule or tablet form. For independent ratings of 101 brands of multivitamins see http://www.multivitaminguide.org/
