Your diet can only get you so far, and a multi can help you get the vitamins and minerals you’re missing on your plate – as long as it’s complete.
A complete multivitamin fills in common nutrient gaps with plenty of calcium, magnesium, and potassium; provide micro minerals like iron, zinc, iodine, selenium, copper, manganese, molybdenum and chromium (we all have daily needs for these too, mind you); and ideally some non-essential – but supporting – trace minerals like boron and silica. Added botanicals and bioactives are also a big bonus.
Your personal eating habits will determine which multi is best for you. If you’re vegetarian or vegan, be sure to choose one that contains a complete B vitamin complex with all 8 essential B vitamins. Iron and iodine are also key for plant-based eaters.
Another point to consider is ingredient dosage. There’s no point investing in a supplement that just provides your body with a pinch of vitamins and minerals. Look for high potency formulas that provide a full range of vitamins and minerals at or above 100% of the recommended daily value. Just note that some of the larger minerals (calcium, magnesium, and potassium) are more difficult to squeeze into a capsule, so they’re often included in slightly smaller doses to keep serving sizes down.
As for the packaging? “I’m a strong supporter of packaging that is recyclable, doesn’t put more plastic into our planet, and also protects the valuable ingredients you’re paying for,” Ferira previously recommended. “For that combination of environmental impact and buffering your multi-ingredients from UV light, amber glass ticks all the boxes,” she adds.
After all, you want your multivitamin to match your personal values. If you’re already following a vegan diet that’s free of GMOs, artificial sweeteners, and synthetic colors, why not look for it in your daily multi?
