From what I can gather from this forum the leading ones are:
 
AOR Ortho-Core
Life Extension Mix
Thorne 2/day
Life Extension Two-per-day
 
These are not without their critics regarding their formulations and each of their ingredients’ dosages etc.
 
It would be great if there was one that had the highest dosages of each ingredient. There isn’t one as far as I can tell. Maybe because each tablet/capsule would be too large to swallow!
 
I've seen ones with, for example, 250 mg of vitamin C! Too low to be of any use. This goes for the other low dose ingredients of many formulations, such as low dose vitamin D and low dose vitamin B Complex etc. Buying these is money down the drain as far as I'm concerned. 
 
Anyway, are there any new formulations out there, that have the best ingredients at the highest dosages and that are safe?

Worth considering Pure, Douglas Labortories, VRP, and VitaminIQ as well - Link to reviews

 

I think the 2 a days are a good foundation and cut down on the pill count.  The life extension has 25mg zinc, 200mg selenium, B vitamins in the best bioavailable form like p5p(very good for kidneys) and  5-MTHF, zeaxanthin, and chromium(metabolism).

 

I dont think the vit c matters, for most people they consider that enough, for the high dose people you are going to want a good powder anyway.

 

Vit d at 2000 IU is good starting point, they have no idea how much sun people get and opinions vary widely on the optimal dosage(sadly).  See grassrootshealth.net and Chris Masterjohn for opposing viewpoints.

 

Beyond the 2 a day, I would add the following to round things out.

 

-omega 3( 1 tsp nordic) or phospholipids by nordic for the best form(esp as you get older) - Omega 3 index info

-magnesium

-life extension health booster(vit k family, E, lutein etc)

-collagen 

-1 tsp cod oil (wiley or virgin) for preform vit A/retinol (im still not sure on best dosage, Weston Price research indicates most modern dosages are way off) - link1 , link2

-probiotic

-digestive enzymes, especially for cheese, beef, and as you get older.
