1.What Is It?
"Multivitamin" is a term used to describe any form of tablet, capsule, powder or liquid supplement that provides multiple essential minerals and vitamins.
These essential vitamins and minerals found in multivitamin supplements are responsible for encouraging efficiency in your bodily functions. As a standalone supplement, a multivitamin can be safe and effective for everyone and there are a variety of different types designed for advanced athletes or everyday individuals.
A general multivitamin is a great for most individuals, however we recommend supplementing with products specific to your specific needs. There are a variety of multivitamins specific to men, women and performance athletes that are designed to promote optimal health for these individuals.
2.What Does It Do?
A multivitamin supplement ensures that your body has all of the essential vitamins and minerals necessary to function in the most efficient manner possible.
In particular, a multivitamin ensures that any gaps in your diet are filled. This reduces the risk of becoming deficient in a particular vitamin, which could negatively affect multiple bodily functions.
3.When Do I Take It?
During off-season training and when caloric intake is high, we recommend taking a multivitamin supplement once per day, preferably first thing in the morning with your first meal of the day.
During in-competition training, or when in a fat-loss phase where caloric intake is low, we recommend taking a multivitamin supplement twice per day. You can take either 2 servings first thing in the morning with your first meal of the day, or take 1 serve in the morning and another serve in the afternoon.
4.How Long Does It Take To Work?
Multivitamin supplements go to work immediately, restoring and maintaining healthy levels of essential vitamins and minerals in your body. You will therefore notice an increase in feeling of well-being within the first few days of use.
5.How Much Does It Cost?
Multivitamin supplements range anywhere from $0.50 – $2.00 per serve, depending on the size and quality of the product.
Based on an average price of $1.00 per serve, and based on one serve per day, supplementing with a multivitamin will typically cost around $30 per month.
6.What Are The Top Products?
We recommend using a performance multivitamin product such as such as MTS Greens + Multi or Universal Nutrition Animal Pak. These products contain only the highest quality vitamin and mineral blends and are some of the best priced products on the Australian market.
