Many manufacturers cut corners when developing multis, and “sprinkle their supplements with less-than-helpful amounts of vitamins, minerals, and botanicals,” mbg’s vice president of scientific affairs Ashley Jordan Ferira, Ph.D., RDN previously told us.
Also, they often don’t consider the bioavailability (how easily the body absorbs the nutrients), gentleness (so there are no upset tummies), and sustainability of the ingredients.
Multivitamins that fall into this category aren’t worth your time, energy, or money.
But when done right, multivitamins can make a big difference and help correct nutritional inadequacies in the diet in addition to promoting longevity.*
