Why bother?: It's fine to take a multivitamin if you want to, but don't waste your money on expensive vitamin supplements. They won't help you build muscle, and they're of no benefit if you're already eating a healthy diet. You can spend the money you save on gym membership and muscle shirts.

Seems OK: The above mention supplements are in common use and the amount you indicated is in safe range and so should be ok to use. Remember that supplements are meant to supplement and should not the primary source of your vitamins/proteins etc. A well balanced diet with plenty of fruits/veggies should a better approach. Consult doc. Good luck.

What is the best multivitamin to take? Does centrum is good? What you can recommend?

What is the best multivitamin to take? Does centrum is good? What you can recommend?

Centrum is ok: I don't specifically endorse any one brand but I recommend a good mulivit has about 100% of the rda for most vitamin components. I see it as a nutritional seatbelt and huge excess percentages can be indicated but you need to have a reason to take then and a professional review it. Some have iron and some don't. In general, premenopausal women can have ones with iron.

Are centrum multivitamins good? Do they get absorbed by the body? What is the best multivitamin brand? Recomendations please

Vitamin supplements: Are all about the same. Buy what you like. The best is a healthy diet. Remember not to overload with a, d, e, k. They are fat soluble and can be toxic. Too much of the others just gets peed out.

What is the best multivitamin for a female in her late 20s? I want to start taking one but not sure which.

None: Go to your Doctor to see if you have a specific vitamin deficiency, or are looking for specific support, like for menstruation symptoms or to become pregnant. Then take that specific vitamin or vitamins. Multivitamins are not generally useful and can cause more symptoms than they help. Save your money and spend it on a gym membership. Exercise has proven health benefits.

What is the best multivitamin for a 22 yr. Old?

Multivitamin for fem: Generally any brand name otc multivitamin like centrum should be adequate. Many of specialized formulations for women/men younger/older, etc. If you're planning on (more) children, one with added folate (folic acid) (b vitamin), calcium for your bones, iron if you still have periods. Any medical conditions might require more specific formulations. Discuss with fp.

What is the best multivitamin for men or immune system?

What is the best multivitamin for men or immune system?

Not one choice but: The only vitamin which appears to have the greatest potential in regulating the immune system is vitamin d3. The lower normal limit in blood vitamin d3 level is targeted towards the bone since a higher level is likely needed for immune function. Other supplements such as zinc, beta carotene, Folic Acid etc have been touted as immune boosters but the evidence is very weak.

I want to know what is the best multivitamin that helps with increasing appetiate and helps with weight gain?

I want to know what is the best multivitamin that helps with increasing appetiate and helps with weight gain?

↑or↓ Wt. GainAllSales: There is lots of marketing claiming all kinds of things, largely based on only isolated, idiosyncratic observations, not carefully designed clinical trails implementing good scientific methods ; rechecked to verify consistency of outcomes. Why? Science is complex ; expensive; who is going to pay? Plus all otc products exempted by federal law, dshea act 1994. Mainstream evid. Most MVI (multivitamin) do little.

What is the best multivitamin product that is non laboratory made most reccomended by doctors?

What is the best multivitamin product that is non laboratory made most reccomended by doctors?

FRESH FRUITS and+: All meds/supplement in tablet/capsule form available are "laboratory made" and so if you are asking for a "natural pill, " that does not exist. Anyhow, the best sources of natural vitamins are from fresh fruits and veggies. Some from animal products--such as vitamin b12, other from grains such as b6, and vitamin d from the sun. So, if you want natural, then eat "naturals". Be well/healthy. Good luck.

22, male: Good health: What is the best multivitamin and what is a good food supplement I can buy from CVS?

22, male: Good health: What is the best multivitamin and what is a good food supplement I can buy from CVS?

Many choices but:: Good question, as many popular multivits like Centrum are FAR inferior to high quality brands. I don't know why you're limiting yourself to CVS- they don't carry the best supps. You can buy any brand online. See http://drrandybaker. Com/2014/01/ for more info on what to look for. My favorite multivitamin is UltraNutrient by Pure Encapsulations. ORAC Energy Greens is my favorite food supplement.

I am 19 years old and thinking about taking a multivitamin. What is the best on the market?

I am 19 years old and thinking about taking a multivitamin. What is the best on the market?

Hard to tell: Vitamin manufactures do not go through fda regulation so it will be hard to verify if they live up to their claims. You can check with consumerreport. Org website. They can help you with picking a reputable manufacturer. I personally do not recommend multi vitamin supplementation except when certain medical conditions exist. Best if you consume your vitamins the natural way.

The best multivitamin for 45y old man?

None: Unless you have known deficiencies in most of the vitamins in a multivitamin, or have a very restricted diet, you will probably get no benefit and may cause other medical problems. If you have a specific vitamin deficiency, then take that specific vitamin. Otherwise, save your money and exercise more. Exercise is better than multivitamins for a person with diabetes.
