4 Red Flags to Avoid in a Multivitamin

Multivitamin commercials have made their way to network television.  

Out of curiosity, I clicked through the one of these ads to see what was in the product being advertised--yikes! 

The forms of micronutrients (and other junk ingredients) listed were disappointing, to say the least.

Hopefully this  short video that’ll help you better vet a multivitamin (or any B vitamin or mineral blend). 

As discussed in more depth in the video, the main four red flags to look out for are:

  1. Form of folate: often times folic acid is used, which you want to avoid
  2. Form of B12: cyanocobalamin is, unfortunately, very commonly used
  3. Forms of other B vitamins and minerals
  4. Unnecessary coloring agents or starches

I realize you may eat a really clean diet, so a multivitamin blend is not your jam.

But many people are new to eating real food or exercising in heat (sweating), or they might be pregnant or have compromised digestion, so a multivitamin has its place.

Hope you find this helpful,

Mike
