ONE A DAY Multivitamins/Minerals

What do they do? Multiple vitamin-mineral (MVM) supplements contain a variable number of essential and/or non-essential nutrients. Their primary purpose is to provide a convenient way to take a variety of supplemental nutrients from a single product, in order to prevent vitamin or mineral deficiencies, as well as to achieve higher intakes of nutrients believed to be of benefit above typical dietary levels.

What are “multiples?” One-per-day multiples focus primarily on B-complex vitamins, with vitamin A and vitamin D sometimes being high and other times being low potency. The rest of the formula, including vitamins C and E and the minerals, tend to be low potency. It does not take much of some of the minerals—for example, copper, zinc and iron—to offer 100% or more of what people normally require.

When you read a label for a one-per-day multiple, evaluate it as primarily a B-complex with added A and D along with low potencies of most minerals except copper, zinc and iron.
