Use of multivitamin and mineral supplements is common among adults. In Washington DC, US Food and Drug Administration carried out a survey to estimate and identify the trend in the prevalence and magnitude of supplement usage in US. The prevalence of supplement users increased from 42% in 1980 to 57% in 1986. The usage was more likely and more intense among individuals who had one or more health problems and individuals who perceived their health as very good or excellent. The findings indicate that supplement usage remains a widespread behaviour linked to popular conceptions of good health and well-being.
A total of 130 community-dwelling adults participated in the study in North Carolina. They were stratified by age, either 45 to 64 years or more than 65 years, and presence of type 2 diabetes mellitus. They were given a multivitamin and mineral supplement or placebo daily for 1 year. The incidence of participant-reported symptoms of infection, incidence of infection-associated absenteeism, and scores on the physical and mental health subscales of the Medical Outcomes Study 12-Item Short Form were recorded.
More participants receiving placebo reported an infectious illness over the study year than did participants receiving multivitamin and mineral supplement. Infection-related absenteeism was higher in the placebo group than in the supplement group. Among diabetic participants receiving placebo, 93% reported an infection compared with 17% of those receiving supplements. Medical Outcomes Study 12-Item Short Form scores did not differ between the supplement and placebo groups. This study showed that a multivitamin and mineral supplement reduced the incidence of participant-reported infection and related absenteeism in a sample of participants with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
The result indicated that multivitamin and mineral supplement was associated with consistent and statistically significant reductions in anxiety and perceived stress compared to placebo. Participants in the supplement group also tended to rate themselves as less tired and better able to concentrate following the supplement. These findings demonstrate that multivitamin and mineral supplement significantly reduces anxiety and perceived stress.
In summary, Multivita is a comprehensive combination of essential vitamins, minerals and amino acid that are important for various functions in the body. These nutrients are vital for maintaining good health and general well-being, reducing the prevalence of nutrient deficiencies, decreasing the incidence of infection, and reducing anxiety and stress.
