Soldia, the only noticeable real problem I see with your list is the Flora Balance. From the information on the site, it appears that this only contains one strain of bacteria, bacillus laterosporus BOD. This is a bacterium which helps protect soil nutrients needed by plants to grow. There’s nothing wrong with taking this, but the problem is that so many other strains are missing. You can find a probiotic with as many as 14 strains of different bacteria, and the more strains you take, the better chance your intestines have of being able to fight the infestation.

These are the bacteria strains in MegaFlora, so the ingredients on the label should appear something like this:

Lactobacillus acidophilus DDS-1 (the DDS-1 type is very important)
Lactobacillus rhamnosus
Bifidobacterium bifidum
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Bifidobacterium infantis
Bifidobacterium longum
Streptococcus thermophilus
Lactobacillus plantarum
Lactobacillus salivarius
Lactobacillus acidophilus
Lactobacillus reuteri
Lactobacillus casei
Lactobacillus bulgaricus
Lactobacillus sporogenes Bacillus lactis

As far as the ingredients in the other supplements are concerned; it’s going to be impossible to find that many supplements which contain no unwanted ingredients. You can assume that these are in very small amounts and that the benefits of taking vitamin supplements will outweigh the few negatives.
