With a son allergic to a ton of foods, it's so important that he get his essential vitamins from another source. This is a great reminder to make taking NATURAL vitamins a priority for him and the rest of our family!!

The fda has said there is lead in many of the multivitamins on the market. They test a few hundred and found all or most of them to have varying levels. Are there any vitamins out there for teen that do not contain lead?
