Video: ❶ How To Determine The Usefulness Of A Vitamin Complex
Today, pharmacies offer a huge variety of vitamins and vitamin complexes. Their price also varies greatly - some "vitamins" cost about several thousand. In order not to spend extra money for a useless but expensive product, you need to be able to assess the level of usefulness of the drug. Are these multivitamin complexes really that good?

The most inexpensive are monopreparations. These vitamins contain one substance. This eliminates assimilation problems that can occur in multivitamin complexes, the substances of which interfere with each other's absorption. For example, the presence of vitamin C blocks vitamin B-12, and iron becomes less effective due to calcium. Moreover, some substances, during long-term storage, simply begin to oxidize each other. If the vitamin is one, then hardly anything can have an effect on it.
However, there is another side to the coin. If the body lacks calcium, then the monosubstance will perfectly cope with its task. But when prevention is needed, the use of monopreparations is completely unjustified. For example, a child needs 13 vitamins and 9 minerals daily. And no one will take twenty-two tablets daily.
Pharmaceutical companies are still doing a poor job of combining vitamins in one complex. If the problem of storing substances is solved quite easily, it is enough just to put each vitamin in a separate capsule, but the question of their interchange remains open. The shell of each capsule will dissolve in the gastric juice, all substances re-occur in the stomach. The proximity of one vitamin to another can trigger an allergic reaction (for example, B1 and B12 are completely incompatible and become strong allergens only when they are encountered).
All multivitamins are similar in composition, only a doctor can highlight the need for one or another element. Almost any drug is suitable for prevention.
The only solution to the problem is multi-tablet complexes, in which incompatible substances are in different tablets. They are taken at different times of the day and are not found in the digestive tract. In addition, such a vitamin set is hypoallergenic.
Remember that the effect of multivitamins is incomplete, although they are much more convenient than multi-tablet complexes. If you need complete prevention, then it is better to choose serious complexes that are taken several times a day. A multivitamin is handy if you only want to take a pill once a day. By choosing convenience, you sacrifice efficiency, but what is more important to you - choose for yourself. If everything is fine with the balance of vitamins in the body, then any drug can be suitable for prevention.
