Multivitamins are general vitamin and mineral complex formulas used to support the body in providing missing elements that sometimes the diet cannot provide.

A good general multivitamin can used used ongoing or during times of fatigue, stress and unwellness, and the idea of a 'multi' is that takes most of the guesswork about what particular element is missing in the diet. Multivitamins are more important if your diet is inadequate or lacks variety, and especially if you're not doing what's best for your overall health, like smoking or drinking more than you should.
