What It Is

Cooper Complete Original comprehensive multivitamin and mineral was the first product developed in the Cooper Complete line. The Cooper Complete scientific advisory team had simple instructions: Create the best and most comprehensive multivitamin to improve the quantity and quality of life. First, reviewing the science of nutrition, the team developed a list of the vitamins, minerals, and other dietary nutrients needed for optimal health and the level of each nutrient. The team then analyzed data from Cooper Clinic patients’ food records as part of their annual physicals to determine how much of each nutrient the average healthy adult eats. The nutrient amount found in the averaged food records was subtracted from the amount identified in the scientific literature review for optimal health, and this total became the ingredient level.

Cooper Complete Original, with 25 ingredients and eight (8) tablets in a daily serving, was the result of this project. This top-rated multivitamin supplement is packed with 25 high-quality vitamins and minerals including zinc, biotin, magnesium, selenium, copper, B vitamins in their activated forms, and letter vitamins A, C, D, E, and K, enhanced with select bioactive plant compounds – including lutein, zeaxanthin, and lycopene. 

How to Use:

As a comprehensive multivitamin for adults, take eight (8) tablets (4 tablets twice daily with meals) or as directed by your physician or healthcare professional. Vanilla-flavored easy swallow coating. Each bottle contains 30 servings.

How It Helps

Heart Health:

  • Clinical research shows Cooper Complete Original comprehensive multivitamin and mineral formulation (without iron) lowers the high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, a key marker of inflammation in the body related to heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune diseases.†
  • Contains 100 mg Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) as levels naturally decline with age. CoQ10 is important for metabolic energy and is essential for heart health.
  • B vitamins in their activated forms support cardiovascular and neurological health.†
  • Contains 400 mg of Potassium to support healthy blood pressure levels. Studies show increasing potassium can help reduce the risk of other cardiovascular diseases, such as heart disease or stroke.

Immune System Health:

  • Vitamin C improves the body’s ability to resist certain pathogens. A water-soluble antioxidant, vitamin C supports immune function, capillary health, and is essential for bone metabolism.
  • Folate and vitamin B12 are methylated for increased bioavailability. L-methylfolate (5-MTHF) is the naturally occurring form of folate and unlike synthetic folic acid, can be used directly by the body.
  • 15 mg zinc, an important mineral for immune function and healthy aging.†

Bone Health:

  • Contains 50 mcg (2,000 IU) vitamin D3, Cooper Clinic’s baseline recommendation for optimal bone health.
  • Magnesium supports bone health and bone density.†

Eye Health:

  • Cooper Complete Original contains 6 mg of Lutein and 0.4 mg of Zeaxanthin to support healthy vision.† Lutein and zeaxanthin are carotenoids and the predominant pigments found in the macula.

Original Multivitamin is a complete and comprehensive multivitamin created to support healthy aging for adult men and post-menopausal women.

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

What research has been conducted on this vitamin?


CRP is an acronym for C-reactive protein, which is a protein produced by the liver and found in the blood. CRP is a marker for systemic inflammation, which may occur due to injury, infection, or fever. Because elevated CRP levels are associated with an increased risk for cardiovascular disease and diabetes, we sought to determine whether multivitamin supplementation with Cooper Complete® reduces CRP levels in our Vitamin and Supplement Study.

Researchers at The Cooper Institute measured the effects of six vitamins, namely C, E, B6, B12, folate, and beta carotene, within a 24-ingredient multivitamin/mineral formula (Cooper Complete Original Comprehensive Multivitamin Iron Free) and found both vitamin B6 and vitamin C significantly reduced CRP levels compared with those participants who took a placebo. More specifically, they found following multivitamin supplementation, the prevalence of patients with a high-risk C-reactive protein level (>3.0 mg/L) reduced from 30 percent to 14 percent. The average change in the patient’s CRP levels over the course of six months was 0.70 mg/L. The greatest reduction in CRP levels was seen in patients who initially had elevated CRP levels. As such, the use of a commercially available multivitamin was found to reduce C-reactive protein levels significantly.

Prevalence of Patients with High-Risk C-Reactive Protein Level (>3.0 mg/L)

Before/After Placebo Multivitamin
Beginning of the study 27% 30%
End of the study 32% 14%

We demonstrated two further benefits from six months of multivitamin supplementation. First, we showed that six months of supplementation significantly increased plasma vitamin levels, namely vitamin C, beta carotene, vitamin E, folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12, as further evidenced below.

Change in Plasma Vitamin Concentration Following Six Months of Multivitamin Supplementation

Vitamin % Increase
Folic Acid 47%
Beta Carotene 51%
Vitamin B12 55%
Vitamin C 69%
Vitamin E 97%
Vitamin B6 272%

Second, we found a significant reduction in LDL (Low-Density Lipoprotein, “bad cholesterol”) oxidation and homocysteine levels, risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease. To this end, we found a 14.6 percent reduction in LDL oxidation rate, which may be attributed to vitamin E, vitamin C, and lycopene. A reduction in LDL oxidation rate is significant because oxidation, or the addition of oxygen to low-density lipoproteins, contributes to atherosclerosis and may ultimately lead to further progression of heart disease.

Further, we found a 17.2 percent reduction in circulating homocysteine levels. Homocysteine is an amino acid found in the blood, and elevated levels are linked to heart disease, atherosclerosis (“hardening” of the arteries), stroke, colon cancer, and Alzheimer’s disease. It has been shown that homocysteine levels are strongly influenced by dietary intake and genetic factors, and through our research, we found that a multi-ingredient vitamin formula, which particularly includes folic acid and vitamin B12, favorably influences homocysteine levels in the blood.

The findings in our Vitamin and Supplement Study show the favorable effects on homocysteine and CRP levels in the blood and the anti-oxidant properties of complex multivitamin supplementation.

How is this multivitamin (Original Multivitamin Iron Free) different from Basic One Daily Multivitamin Iron Free?


Original Multivitamin Iron Free is the most comprehensive product available. It includes all the vitamins and minerals you’d expect, plus 100 mg coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) for heart health, 6 mg lutein for skin and eye health, 300 mcg biotin for hair and nails, and higher levels of vitamins A, C, and K, the B vitamins thiamin and riboflavin and magnesium.

The serving size for this robust multivitamin and mineral formulation is eight (8) tablets per day (ideally, four (4) with breakfast and four (4) with dinner) while Basic One is one (1) tablet per day and is Cooper Clinic’s baseline recommendation for optimal health. This side-by-side comparison of the multivitamin and mineral formulations provides an easy-to-read snapshot of the products.

I have been following Dr. Cooper’s recommendations in Decision Magazine. Are the ingredients in these vitamins made in the US? I am concerned about vitamins distributed in the United States but made in China. Thank you


All Cooper Complete supplements are manufactured here in the United States.

Raw materials come from around the world, including China. A Vendor Qualification Program is in place to ensure that only product that has been vetted is accepted into the facility. All incoming product is accompanied by a certificate of analysis. The product is quarantined in the manufacturing facility until it undergoes testing to ensure that the product received is in fact, as stated and meets guidelines.

We take pride in providing the highest quality products to our customers. All of our vitamins and supplements are manufactured in facilities that are compliant with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) set by the FDA.


Has the pill color changed?


Yes. As part of a Clean Label Initiative, we removed the taupe coating. This change allowed us to reduce the number of ingredients required to bind and coat the tablet from 13 to 8. The pill color is now light beige to pale yellow with speckles.


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.


Is Cooper Complete Iron Free vegetarian, vegan, “raw,” or kosher?


No. Cooper Complete Iron Free is not vegetarian, vegan, “raw,” or kosher.


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, and other products made on the machines might contain any of these ingredients. While the equipment is thoroughly cleaned between different runs to avoid cross-contamination, the potential risk remains.


Why do all Cooper Complete multivitamin and mineral formulations have a high dose of B12 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. Therefore, our comprehensive multivitamin contains preventive levels of both vitamin B12 and folic acid, which together work to lower homocysteine levels.


Why isn’t calcium in Cooper Complete comprehensive multivitamin?


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


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. We split the daily serving of eight tablets into four tablets in the morning and four in the evening. Dividing the daily serving helps keep these vitamins at their highest levels as our body eliminates many water-soluble vitamins within 12 hours.

For optimal absorption and reduced potential for stomach upset, your meals should contain protein, fat, and carbohydrates. We also offer a one-tablet-a-day multivitamin and mineral formula, Cooper Complete Basic One, if you find you do not consistently take all eight tablets.


Seeing that 8 tablets are recommended/day, I’m worried about the size being too large. Is this considered a large tablet or smaller than standard?


In the carousel of images next to the large featured bottle image, there is an image of the tablet size next to a ruler. It is oval-shaped for easier swallowing and is less than 3/4″ inches long.
