The best “multi-vitamin” for healthy people?


Report of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee
on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010

For the general, healthy population, there is no evidence to support a recommendation for the use of multivitamin/mineral supplements in the primary prevention of chronic disease.

Limited evidence suggests that supplements containing combinations of certain nutrients are beneficial in reversing chronic disease when used by special populations; in contrast, certain nutrient supplements appear to be harmful in other subgroups.

People take vitamins all the time and I am frequently asked which is best.

My answer is NONE.

A body that is deficient or malnourished needs to be supplemented with essential nutrients that can be obtained from a variety of foods that can be grown or found locally.  If you eat well rounded and colorful then you should not need to supplement your diet, unless you have a true deficiency.

There is a difference.

Have you ever seen a person that is malnourished?

This dude here isn’t one of them
