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.

Rated 4.8 out of 5★áby 24reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★áby The ONLY Vitamin for me! this is the ONLY vitamin that I've taken that I notice that I feel much better afterwards...When Walmart discontinued it a few years back, I tried a bunch of other multivitamins, but none had the same effect. When Walmart brought One Source back, I was SO excited that I bought all the bottles on the shelf. 11/09/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★áby The best women's all in one vit/min +herbs I am happy that they finally got this back. I have been using it and their other formula's for my family for yrs. I was devastated to hear Walmart stopped carrying it. Its the only vit. that I have felt a difference from when I have missed a few days. It is one of the few that doesn't get my stomach upset as well. Our family was seldom sick in the northern winters. Now that we stopped this brand we are getting sick more often. This vit/min has herbal base as well-added immunity herbs and women specific beneficial ones. I am glad they decided to bring it back. You can't beat the formula and can't even come close to the low price. I never have to take additional supplements with this one. 12/02/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★áby The best multi-vitamin I have come across This is the best multi-vitamin I have come across. Many multi-vitamins have a very small amount of a vitamin, and it seems some manufactures put just enough in the vitamin to be able to list it on the label. But this multi-vitamin has excellant amounts of the vitamins that are listed. It really makes you think that the formulator really cares about our health and are trying to give their best shot at offering what our bodies really need, not to survive, but to prosper in our health. If you are a person that really does not know a lot about vitamins, buy a bottle and show it to your doctor and get their opinion. I am certain they will be shocked at how good this multi-vitamin really is. 08/24/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Excellent Product These multivitamins are great! I recently purchased them because I was looking for a new multivitamin that had more vitamins and minerals than the brand that I had been taking previously. Honestly, the price is what caught my eye, but after reading the label, I realized that these had the amount of vitamins and minerals, as well as herbs and other nutrients that I was looking for in a supplement. I have only been taking them for a few weeks, but I can honestly say that I can feel a huge difference in my energy level! Although the pills are rather large, I do not have difficulty swallowing them, which I think is important. They also do not upset my stomach, which is definitely a plus! I definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a great, inexpensive, and complete multivitamin! I definitely plan to continue taking these! 04/25/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★áby I like the fact, I dont need extra vitiamins to take w/ this product. 01/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★áby potent perfect blend vitamins When I ran out of these vitamins some time ago I noticed my energy had decreased dramatically. When I finally realized it was perhaps the vitamins I started taking them again. Voila. Energy returned. I'm sold. Check out the B vitamin content :) 03/01/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Unbelievably Good Multi-vitamin! Several yrs. ago, I was diagnosed with perniscous anemia and extremely low B12 count. I was scheduled to see a Hematology Oncologist because my white count was extremely low they thought I may have cancer...in the mean time , I felt like I needed a vitamin because I was so fatigued and could barely do my job, but new I needed a coated vitamin because regular ones make me sick. Went to GNC...NO HELP! Was at WalMart and started looking and found these....they are THE ONLY vitamin I ever took that didn't make me sick, gave me energy, lose weight, and help my bone health. I am 62 and was told that my scan looked like a woman in her early 40's. I have told everyone about these and they love them too. Freaked out when Walmart was going to drop them...someone even got a Web page to petition Walmart to keep them...they are only made for Walmart...I called the maker of these and was told that. I also freak out if I don't see any bottles in stock and buy two or three when I can. PLEASE< PLEASE<PLEASE Walmart do not discountinue this vitamin. They are awesome and help me so much!! 06/12/2014
Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great vitamin for the price! I have been taking one source vitamins for a few years now. Not only are they affordable but they are one of the few vitamins that actually give you energy and you can actually feel the difference in a short time. You don't have to wait to feel better for a several weeks. One source vitamins actually give you energy within 1 to 2 weeks. 08/23/2013
