Frequently Asked Questions

Multivitamins contain many vitamins and minerals the body needs to stay healthy. Thirteen vitamins and at least sixteen minerals are constantly needed to maintain our health. Multivitamins can contain all those essential vitamins and minerals but in different forms and amounts. They may also contain other ingredients such as herbs, amino acids and fatty acids.

The specific composition available depends on the purpose of the multivitamin supplement. For example, calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D are important for proper recovery after workouts, so they are often present in multivitamins for athletes. There are also specific multivitamins for men, women and kids with different vitamins and minerals for each group according to their age and gender.

In general, multivitamins fill nutritional gaps and ensure that people are consuming sufficient daily intakes of vital nutrients like vitamins A, C, D, E and K, calcium, magnesium and dietary fibre. Depending on the composition, multivitamins have different effects on our bodies. They can help to improve memory, boost immunity, improve metabolism, slow down ageing or reduce the risk of dangerous diseases.

Different multivitamins are best for different purposes. Most multivitamins contain vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K, calcium and magnesium, which are essential to our health. Additionally, multivitamins can contain vitamins and minerals necessary for specific purposes, for example, zinc for immunity support or iron for normalisation of heart and blood vessels. To select the best multivitamin, you should consider its composition and purpose. Mr Vitamins offers multivitamin supplements from leading brands so that you can find the right one for your needs.

There are no known risks with a daily multivitamin intake. But it is good only if the multivitamins contain sufficient and necessary amounts of the right vitamins and minerals - no more and no less than you need to stay healthy. All supplements are good only when taken as directed. Also, always read the specific information on your multivitamin to choose the right composition and dosage. If you are not sure whether the multivitamin supplement is suitable for you, ask your doctor for advice.

Yes, there are potential benefits of multivitamins, such as improving metabolism, increasing the ability to resist infections and diseases, normalising activity of the nervous system, protecting the human body from harmful environmental factors and boosting the immune system. But the use of multivitamins should be considered as part of a healthy lifestyle, not as a panacea for health. We can get most of the vitamins and minerals from food, so if you have a deficiency in some nutrients, it is best to correct your diet first.

Yes, multivitamins are safe if taken as directed in the correct dosage. Please, read the information on your multivitamin supplement carefully and if you have any concerns consult with your health specialist. Some multivitamins should not be mixed with medications and are not advisable during pregnancy or lactation.

Multivitamins do not pose any health risks and are safe for kidneys when taken properly. Uncontrolled intake of vitamins can lead to hypervitaminosis. First of all, it refers to fat-soluble nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, and K as they are well absorbed and slowly excreted. Prolonged, significant over-exposure to vitamins can lead to kidney disease, liver and heart abnormalities, weakness and fatigue, nausea and headaches.

To avoid side effects, please, be sure to read the instructions for your multivitamin supplement carefully and consult your healthcare provider or speak with one of our friendly Mr Vitamins Naturopaths.

Most experts agree that morning is best for multivitamins: take them during breakfast with a meal to ease absorption. However, there's no absolutely right or wrong time to take a multivitamin. Please, read your supplement instructions to make sure you choose the best timing and dosage.

Most multivitamins should be taken once or twice per day. Please, read the information on your supplement label and follow dosage recommendations.

Multivitamins are not believed to directly affect weight gain or loss, but they can help to normalise your metabolism, which can lead to weight changes. When you take multivitamins, the absorption of food improves, and if you lead a passive lifestyle, then nutrients will be deposited in fat. Multivitamin supplements should be considered as part of a healthy lifestyle - if you follow the principles of proper nutrition, exercise regularly, do not have bad habits (smoking, drinking), taking multivitamins should not affect your weight.

Multivitamins are usually taken in courses. The duration of one course is usually one month. The break between courses should be 2-3 weeks and it is better to take 3-4 multivitamin courses a year to get the best effect. If you have a deficiency of any vitamins, their amount may return to normal after the first month. But you can first notice the effects of your supplements even after a couple of days, because the speed at which you will see the results of your multivitamin's work depends on how severe your deficiency is. In general, the more severely deficient you are in a vitamin or mineral, the quicker you will notice a difference in your condition.

You also need to consider the type of supplement you’re taking, as different multivitamins contain different amounts of vitamins and minerals.

Certain lifestyle factors and habits, such as drinking alcohol and smoking, also affect the efficiency of multivitamin supplements. These bad habits may interfere with nutrient absorption, requiring a higher intake of supplements. Similarly, caffeine can cause malabsorption of some nutritional substances such as vitamin B6, calcium, iron, and magnesium.
