Multivitamin Safety Confirmed

Multivitamin Safety Confirmed

Because many people, including pregnant women, take multivitamins, doctors wanted to assess long-term safety. Doctors reviewed 15 studies covering healthy adults, pregnant women, and older adults, where the supplements contained at least nine vitamins and three minerals at up to 100 percent of the recommended dietary allowance.

"Multivitamin-minerals within the range of Dietary Reference Intake will not result in excess intake, even when including food and fortified food, and do not increase mortality," researchers concluded, continuing, "Multivitamin-minerals can be safe for long-term use of more than 10 years."

Even with a balanced, healthy diet, micronutrient gaps can occur from time to time, and nearly three in four Americans don't get enough vitamins A, C, D, and E, calcium, and magnesium. Multivitamin-mineral supplements help close these gaps, improve nutritional levels, and reduce potential health issues without exceeding upper recommended limits, doctors said.
