Don't Rely on a Gummy Multivitamin If You Can Swallow a Tablet

Gummy vitamins are better tasting and easier-to-swallow than multivitamin tablets, but this convenience comes at a significant cost. 

Problem number one is that most gummy brands are missing too many essential nutrients.

According to the Institute of Medicine, we need to get 13 vitamins and 12 minerals from our diet, fortified foods, or dietary supplements. Multivitamins are supposed to be a kind of insurance policy to make sure we’re getting these. What’s the point of taking one that has only about half of what we need? 

Centrum MultiGummies for Adults, for example, is missing 10 of these vitamins and minerals. NatureMade Multi Adult Gummies and vitafusion Multivites lack 9 of them.

Smarty Pants Adult Complete doesn’t have vitamins B-1, B-3, and K, as well as the minerals iron, magnesium, copper, selenium, and chromium. How can a supplement that’s so “incomplete” call itself “complete?” Good question.

Among the 37 brands of gummy multivitamins we examined, none came close to being a good substitute for an ordinary multivitamin tablet like a Centrum, One-A-Day, or similar brand. Chewable and liquid multis may contain more nutrients than gummies, but they’re no match for multivitamin tablets, either.

Multi-Vitamin Alternative To Centrum? Are There Any Out There?

I took centrum from November 2007-March 2008. I'm anemic and I also need to build up my immune system so I need to take multi-vitamins.

Centrum has a lot of ingredients and I want to take a multi-vitamin that is more natural and healthy


What you need to do is go to a dietian.
I don't think anyonone on the internet can recommend something that can work for you, especially since you are anemic.
A dietian can help by telling you what multi-vitamin you can use to substitute


Yes, go to this site puritanpride.com. great vitamin, etc co been in business for years, we been using for over 20 yrs, no problems, plus great prices, often buy 2, get 3 free, have vitamins same as centrum, etc. save $$$ and get the best


Just check the ingredients in the generics. I take a generic woman's multi. With a brand name, you are paying for the name.

As for how long, you need to discuss that with your doctor. No one here knows your health and condition and can't

Does taking a multi-vitamin like Centrum daily cause you to gain weight?

I've tried googling this & have found mixed answers. So does anyone here know if it does? Also I read an article that says that it isn't good to take one everyday. Also, does taking a multi-vitamin daily boost your energy?

Thank you!


Sorry, it really does vary, because no two people are the same, and there is taking into account your personal health situation.

Some people respond to vitamins by gaining weight, which actually might be healthy for them. Others lose, others

A multivitamin will boost your energy level and will not cause you to gain any weight. A multivitamin is actually supposed to help you lose weight but I very much doubt whether that is actually true.
