Choosing a Multivitamin

With shelves of vitamin supplements on the market, it can be a daunting task to choose the right one for you.

First, it is ok to choose generic brands, oftentimes these brands are just as good as the ones with fancy advertising.

Also, there is a slight different in the multivitamins for men and women. Women's vitamins often contain iron, which is a necessary supplement, whereas men need little or no iron.

Lastly, test your vitamins by placing one in a glass of water. It should dissolve in under a half hour. Some vitamins can take up to two hours to dissolve and are
therefore useless, as they won't absorb into the bloodstream.
