Choosing the Right Supplement

The purpose of a multivitamin and mineral supplement is just that - to supplement the diet, not replace it.

With today's busy lifestyle, it's often difficult to ensure that you are getting all the fresh food you need for a healthy diet. The best advice is to eat a balanced diet, however many factors may impact on our diet and our nutrient levels. Some of these include lifestyle, eating patterns and even the way we store and prepare food.

If you can't achieve an adequate vitamin and mineral intake with your diet alone, a vitamin and mineral supplement is recommended.

What to look for in a multivitamin?

With so many multivitamin and mineral supplements available it is often difficult to choose the one that is best suited to your needs.

A good multivitamin and mineral supplement should have the right balance and range of essential vitamins and minerals to help promote health and general well-being.

It will also have levels close to the recommended daily dose of vitamins and minerals that are not readily available in the western diet and, at the same time, should not contain an over supply of nutrients that are overly abundant in the western diet. It also should not have an over supply of fat-soluble vitamins and minerals in order to avoid the risk of toxicity.

The Centrum formulas are specially formulated with balanced levels of vitamins and minerals that closely represent the RDI of nutrients.
