What is a multivitamin?
Multivitamin supplements are combinations of vitamins and minerals brought together in supplement form, usually 1 or 2 tablets.
They serve to achieve the daily values of vitamins and minerals in a diet.
Formulas differ from brand to brand.
They should be taken with meals that contain fat as the fat-soluble vitamins contained in these formulas need a source of fat to be correctly absorbed.

Main results expected from multivitamins:
- Greater immunity
- More energy
The benefits of multivitamins normally depend on possible deficiencies; in a diet that already meets all vitamin and mineral requirements, the benefits will be minimal.
