Multivitamins, are they worth it?


What are Multivitamins?

If the name didn't give it away already, multivitamins are a supplement that covers a variety of vitamins and minerals, giving you extra nutrients that you may not be getting in your diet.

Whether it's our environment, lifestyle, or other factors, a large population lacks recommended vitamins and minerals. A 2021 study conducted found that 20% of the UK have a vitamin D deficiency (1); it was also shown that a percentage lacked other important vitamins such as B Vitamins, Calcium, and Iron.

Who should consider taking Multivitamins? 

While taking multivitamins could be beneficial for the general population, there are certain groups of people, in particular, that may find multivitamins extra beneficial...

Vegans & Vegetarians  

People who avoid eating meat may struggle to get their intake of vitamin b12 and iron. Multivitamins are a good addition to your diet to help fill the nutrient gap.

Individuals with food allergies & intolerances

People who miss out on absorbing certain nutrients from foods due to intolerances or allergies may find multivitamins beneficial to add to their diet. 

Older generation

As we get older, it becomes harder to digest essential nutrients for health, such as Vitamin D and B vitamins (2). Multivitamins can be a good addition to a balanced diet to help the elderly with their nutrient intake.

What to look for when buying multivitamins

When looking for the right multivitamins, our top tip would be to take one which covers all the recommended vitamins. It may be helpful to consider your diet, goals, and age. 

So, are Multivitamins worth it?

Along with a well-balanced diet, multivitamins are a great way of getting extra nutrients into your diet. They offer a wide variety of vitamins and minerals in one product, making it an easy and convenient way to get your vitamin intake. They could be helpful to those who struggle to take more than one vitamin.
