They also believe that by using the purest, most bioavailable raw materials - those without unnecessary additives and preservatives - every individual's outcome will be optimized.
Al's Formula is a comprehensive multiple vitamin-mineral formula designed to support the metabolic functions of the mature man.* Al's Formula contains saw palmetto extract, extra zinc, and the amino acids alanine, glycine, and glutamic acid for nutritional support of the prostate.*

Other Directions: "INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS
As Vitamin K interferes with the effect of anticoagulant drugs (like Coumadin), the concurrent use of these agents should be avoided.
Folinic acid and 5-methyl-tetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrently with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
