What Makes a Good Multivitamin?
: Main Image
Multiples are available as a powder inside a shell capsule, as a liquid inside a soft-gelatin capsule, or hard-pressed as tablets that may be chewed or swallowed
Designed for people whose diets don't meet all their nutritional needs, multiple vitamin-mineral supplements ("multivitamins") are convenient nutrient combinations, usually taken one to six times per day. While it's generally agreed that a healthy diet is the best foundation for health, everyday life makes that goal challenging for many people. So, some people supplement in hope of preventing disease-causing deficiencies and providing higher nutrient amounts than they can get through diet alone, which may help prevent or manage certain diseases.

Who decides how much is enough?

Recommended dietary allowances have been developed by a scientific panel to broadly cover healthy people of any age or gender. Used to design mass food programs, such as for the armed forces and food relief/ration programs, RDA's were the basis for the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) values, which the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses to create the Daily Value (DV) packaging labels.

Many multivitamins contain at least 100% of RDA recommendations. However, decades of research on human nutrition has led many researchers and healthcare professionals to conclude that a "one-size-fits-all" approach does not address the increased need for certain nutrients by people who are not healthy or by those at increased risk of developing various diseases due to genetics or lifestyle habits. The RDA does account for this increased need in certain cases such as, vitamin C for smokers, or vitamin D for seniors. Abundant research also suggests therapeutic benefits to supplementing with certain nutrients, even when eating a healthful diet.

For a list of the recommended optimal amounts of each nutrient, go to a Healthy Person's Guide to Vitamins & Minerals.

What's the best multivitamin for me?

Multiples are available as a powder inside a hard-shell pull-apart capsule, as a liquid inside a soft-gelatin capsule, or hard-pressed as tablets that may be chewed or swallowed. Common products on the market include:

  • Low-potency/one-a-day multiples: These mixtures often contain 100% of the daily requirements for most vitamins and some minerals that many people require. However, they do not provide enough to make up for deficiencies or other therapeutic amounts. For example, people eating a Western diet may be deficient in minerals such as calcium and magnesium, which one-a-days may not help correct.
  • High-potency multiples: These mixtures may provide higher amounts of desired nutrients sometimes designed to support particular health goals, such as heart health. To evenly distribute nutrition to the body, these are convenient combination products usually designed to be taken as caplets or tablets in divided doses, depending on the formula.
  • Timed-release: Some healthcare professionals assume that releasing vitamins and minerals slowly into the body over a period of time is better than releasing them all at once. However, except for some studies showing better absorption of time-released vitamin C, this assumption has not been well studied and some concerns have been raised about the safety of the chemical agents used to cause the timed release.
  • Vegetarian: Most capsules are made from animal gelatin, so vegetarians need to carefully read supplement labels to ensure they are getting a vegetarian product.

What's the best way to take a multi?

The best time to take most supplements is with meals, to avoid stomach upset they sometimes cause and to help the body better absorb the nutrients.

  • Capsules vs. tablets: Occasionally B vitamins react with a product's other ingredients, especially when exposed to moisture or heat; this can cause discoloration and a bad smell. While the multiple is still safe and effective, the smell is off-putting and usually not very well tolerated. Liquid multiples in a soft-gel capsule-or tablets or capsules that are kept dry and cool-do not have this problem. Capsules are usually smoother than tablets, so some people find them easier to swallow. Properly made tablets and capsules will dissolve readily in the stomach, allowing the nutrients to be absorbed.
  • Chewables: Multiples do not taste very good and to make them palatable to both children and adults, bad-tasting ingredients are reduced or eliminated and the rest are masked with a sweetener (sometimes more sweetener than any other ingredient). Debates continue, but healthcare professionals generally recommend avoiding regular consumption of both artificial sweeteners like aspartame (NutraSweet(R)) and sugars. (Xylitol, a natural sugar, does not cause tooth decay or other known problems but is rarely used in chewables because it is relatively expensive.) Chewable vitamin C products should contain buffered vitamin C, rather than the acidic form (ascorbic acid), to avoid damaging tooth enamel.

Does a multiple ensure good nutrition?

Nothing beats a nutrient-rich, whole foods diet to as a foundation for good nutrition, and quality supplements may help support that goal.

Are multiples good for kids?

While a whole food diet is the preferable route, a high-quality multivitamin might be recommended for children eating an unbalanced diet. In one double-blind trial, schoolchildren received a daily low-potency vitamin-mineral tablet for three months that contained 50% of the RDA for most essential vitamins and the minerals. About 20% of participants (working class, primarily Hispanic, children, aged 6 to 12) experienced dramatic gains in certain measures of IQ, possibly due to correction of specific nutrient deficiencies in these children. However, it was not possible in this study to identify which nutrients caused the improvement.

        Theses vitamins are worth the money. I've been taking them for about 6 months, one of the biggest benefits is the ability to take it on an empty stomach and not get nauseous. I'm young but I have joint problems in my knees and shoulders so I'll try anything that can help and these vitamins are a winner. I just feel all around better when taking them, although I haven't noticed any dramatic changes I believe these vitamins are worth the premium price. Just wait until they go on sale!

        Most multivitamins upset my stomach, but this one did not! I feel great taking it. It has given me more energy and helped clear my acne & acne scars. It has a blend for joints and muscles, and once again, I notice the difference. I am less sore after working it, I recover quicker, and my ankle problems are gone.

        I am sold! :D

          I have used a couple different vitamins but they never made me feel as great as this one has. If you have some digestive issues this vitamin will surely clear them up! I have seen such a difference in my body with this vitamin as well as my workout regimen. I have told so many people about it!!!!

          I use this product twice a day after meal. I searched and tried a lot of different products and this one I like the most: the formular is good, it doesn't upset my stomach, I feel much better then I take this vitamins daily. Highly recommed. I gave it 4 stars only because of the size - it is a little big, but not huge, so I will keep purchasing this product.

            I love the fact that these are organic and have lots of whole food products in it, however, after about a week of taking these twice a day as recommended, I noticed my bowel movements slowed significantly, and I'm very regular (i know, tmi, sorry). They made me soooo constipated and extremely bloated. I took a break from them for a couple of days, and low and behold, I wasn't constipated anymore and the bloating went away. I've bought the regular mega green for women without the active and I don't recall having these side effects. I want to try these again because I have a whole bottle of them and I don't want them to go to waste, and I know its very good for me, but I think I'm just going to be taking one a day and see how that sits with me.

                This vitamin it wonderful.Usually when I take a vitamin I expect to feel some sort of up and then a down. This supplies me with long lasting, consistent energy throughout the day. I take one in the morning and one in the afternoon with lunch. They are not hard on my stomach and don't smell bad, making them easy to swallow. Great nutritional addition!

                    I am a vegetarian who desperately needs additional vitamins that my diet doesn't provide. However, every vitamin I've ever taken (from store-bought, to vegan, to liquid) has left me instantly sick to my stomach. Taking with food and taking before bed never helped either.

                    From the first day of taking these, I have had NO nausea, and have felt so much more energized! These things are GREAT! Finally my search for a vitamin is over...still in search of a calcium supplement that doesn't make me sick though :/
