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:
- Form of folate: often times folic acid is used, which you want to avoid
- Form of B12: cyanocobalamin is, unfortunately, very commonly used
- Forms of other B vitamins and minerals
- 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,
