Question: II would like to know if your product MYADEC is the same formula as the one Parke XXXXXXX made back in the 1940 time period or not? If so I would like to start buying it again.

Brief Answer:
Has the same formula

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Yes, Myadec Multivitamin & Mineral tablets has the same formula that was in use long back.

Myadec is a multivitamin preparation. Let me tell you that vitamins are required by our body in minuscule amounts and are not stored. Whatever we need is usually available from an average daily diet. So, unless you have a specific deficiency it is simply useless to take multivitamin supplements and all of it would simply be flushed out with urine. Such supplementation is therefore meaningless (even in growing children). Nevertheless, you are free to make your choice.

Let me know if I could help further.

Regards
