    Cooper Complete Elite Athlete multivitamins enable me to continue running marathons and paddling in a 6 man outrigger canoe. I am super active and demand a lot from this 67 years young body. I am in excellent health and so very thankful for the Elite Athlete formula!

    I’ve been using Cooper Complete Elite for over 10 years and believe it to be an important part of my nutrition. Since I started, my virus/cold rate has been significantly reduced from 2 infections a year to 3 infections in 10 years. I’ve looked at a lot of other products and believe this Elite formula to be the best on the market.

    • Hi Jeff,

      As a US Olympian (1972, 10,000 meters and an alternate on the marathon team), your positive comments make our day! We’re glad you use Cooper Complete Elite Athlete as part of your nutrition and health plan. In the early 1990’s, Dr. Kenneth Cooper noticed marathon runners suffered with colds and other viruses despite their focus on diet, nutrition and exercise. With a team of physicians and researchers, Elite Athlete was created to help keep marathon athletes like you healthy and performing at their full potential.

      We love your website and newsletter, and truly appreciate your training program that teaches people interested in running the Run, Walk, Run method.

      Jill Turner, President

    I can honestly say that Cooper Complete Elite Athlete and Cooper Complete Original multivitamins are a must for all the expeditions I go on. As a climber in remote areas, we often eat foods that lack the vitamins that are in fresh fruits and vegetables. Without the vitamins we take – usually Cooper Complete Iron Free, sometimes Cooper Complete Elite Athlete, along with Advanced Omega-3 – we would be doing serious harm to ourselves. We certainly feel better when we take them, and we get sick less often when we are taking them. I recommend these products. They’ve made me feel better, and I don’t worry about my long term health as much as I used to knowing the harm I’m doing to my body when I go on these expeditions. Thank you for making supplements that have been thoroughly researched and that really do work.

    Cooper Complete helps anyone involved in the marathon we all run. It’s called life. Cooper Complete Elite Athlete multivitamins have played an integral role in both my personal training and my sports medicine practice. I have observed a significant number of my athletes experiencing enhanced performances while using this nutritional supplement. While I sincerely believe the Elite formula should be considered for any athlete who trains more than five to eight hours a week, I believe that Cooper Complete Original multivitamins and Cooper Complete Basic One can enhance the health of non-athletes as well.

Product Details

Product Description

Developed by Dr. Kenneth Cooper, Cooper Clinic physicians and registered dietitian nutritionists, and a team of the country’s leading researchers, Cooper Complete Elite Athlete Multivitamin is scientifically formulated for runners, cyclists, competitive body builders and weight lifters, and other athletes who push their body to the limit.

Research has shown that strenuous aerobic exercise is associated with oxidative stress and tissue damage in the body. Exercise above the threshold levels of 150 Aerobic Points per week or working at 80 percent of your predicted maximum heart rate ((205 – 1/2 age) x 0.80) at least five hours per week may greatly increase the risk of your body tissues suffering from excess free radicals. The body’s need for oxygen during exercise seems to produce free radicals, which can result in DNA damage, cancer, direct damage to muscle tissue, and make the cells more susceptible to aging (Antioxidant Revolution, Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper, 1994).

This product contains NO milk/dairy or added preservatives.

As a dietary supplement, adults take 8 tablets daily (4 tablets twice daily with meals) Elite Athlete Multivitamin or as directed by your physician or health care professional. 240 tablets per bottle. 30-day supply. Vanilla-flavored easy swallow coating.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to take four tablets twice a day?

Splitting the daily serving of eight tablets (four in the morning with breakfast and four in the evening with dinner) allows the body to maintain a sufficient level of the water-soluble antioxidants needed to fight off free radicals.

Do I need to take all eight tablets if I eat very healthy foods or can I just take three or four?

Take all eight. An article in the Journal of the American Medical Association, May 7, 1997, reported, “For some nutrients, the amounts proposed as being healthy apparently cannot be provided by a reasonable quantity and variety of natural foods. Thus nutrient supplements may be important for health promotion and prevention of certain chronic diseases.” Taking the full dosage in addition to a healthy diet will ensure that your intake of vitamins is at the best level. (Note: If you do not consistently take all eight tablets, we recommend that you take Basic One, our daily one-tablet-a-day multivitamin and mineral formula.)

Why isn’t calcium in Cooper Complete multivitamins?

Calcium requirements are dependent upon both gender and age. Because Cooper Complete multivitamins are formulated for men and women, it was best to leave calcium out of the formula.

Why do all Cooper Complete multivitamin and mineral formulations have such a high dose of B12 as compared to the daily value?

One objective of Cooper Complete multivitamin and mineral supplements is to lower the homocysteine level. Research indicates excessive levels of homocysteine may increase the risk of stroke, certain types of heart disease and peripheral artery disease (disease of the blood vessels of the arms, legs and feet).Homocysteine is a breakdown product of the amino acid methionine found primarily in meats and dairy products. In a homocysteine state, it can either go back to methionine or be broken down further to cysteine, neither of which is toxic.

Our products contain preventive levels of both vitamin B12 and folic acid, which together convert homocysteine to methionine. In addition, vitamin B6 helps to convert homocysteine to cysteine. The use of folic acid alone, i.e., not compensated with adequate vitamin B12, could increase the risk of pernicious anemia.

The tablet size is too big. Can I cut or crush the tablets to make them smaller?

Yes. It is safe to crush or cut the tablets into smaller size. However, the minerals in vitamins do not taste good. Be aware that if the tablet is crushed, it will be difficult to mask the flavor if adding it to something else.

Is Cooper Complete peanut, garlic, corn and pepper-free?

Yes. However, we outsource the actual production of our products to a manufacturing facility that produces other supplements. It is possible that other products run on the machines might contain any of these ingredients. While the equipment is cleaned completely between different runs in order to avoid cross contamination, the potential is still there.

Is Cooper Complete Elite Athlete vegetarian, vegan, “raw” or kosher?

No. Cooper Complete Elite Athlete is not vegetarian, vegan, “raw” or kosher.

Can I take this product if I am also taking Coumadin or Warfarin?

If you are taking Coumadin or Warfarin, we recommend consulting your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.
