Do multivitamin tablets work?

 

Vitamin supplements can be effective at treating deficiencies in certain nutrients when you’re not getting enough of them from your diet or lifestyle.

 

Your diet should always be the first place you look to for your vitamin intake, but if you find that you’re struggling to get enough of a certain nutrient, vitamin supplements could help you get back on track.

 

When choosing your vitamin supplements, we’d recommend asking your doctor or pharmacist for advice that’s tailored to you.

 

They can help you to assess your lifestyle and nutritional needs and make sure these are met through a balanced diet with food supplements to back up your intake if you need them.

Frequently Asked Questions

The vitamin supplements that you will need to take will depend on your circumstances.

 

Although supplements should never be used in place of a healthy, balanced diet, they can support you if you’ve realised you’re lacking in certain nutrients and you’re working on making positive changes to your diet.

 

There are also some vitamins that the NHS recommend for certain people — for example, the NHS recommends that you take a vitamin D supplement during the winter months when the weather is less sunny.

 

Another recommendation is folic acid for women who are trying to get pregnant or are in the first months of pregnancy.

The NHS recommends that everyone over the age of 4 should take 10 microgram vitamin D supplements during autumn and winter.

 

This is because we usually get vitamin D from sunlight hitting our skin and when the lovely British weather kicks in in the colder months it can be harder for us to catch those rays.

 

Although you can get vitamin D from your diet, it’s not the easiest vitamin to get enough of, which is why daily supplements step in to help.

 

If you’re someone who isn’t exposed to a lot of sunlight in general, you can take a vitamin D supplement all year round to help keep your levels up.

Vitamin supplements don’t cause acne.

 

Acne is a skin condition caused by hormonal changes in your body, like those during your period or when you’re pregnant.

 

Although some vitamins can help to support healthy skin, they don’t affect your hormones, so they shouldn’t affect your acne.

 

If you have acne and have found that normal skincare routines haven’t helped, we recommend speaking to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

 

They could recommend a treatment like benzoyl peroxide that can help to ease moderate to severe breakouts.

Yes, you can overdose on vitamins and supplements, so it’s important to take care with the supplements you’re taking.

 

You should not take more than one multivitamin a day.

 

These products will often contain the same vitamins and this can lead to you accidentally taking too much.

 

If you’re taking a multivitamin, you should also be very careful if you’re taking any separate singular supplements, such as a vitamin d supplement — you could end up taking too much if these overlap.

 

You can find out which vitamins and minerals are in your supplements by checking the nutritional values table on the packaging, so make sure you’re never doubling up on any nutrients.

 

If you have any concerns, make sure to speak to your doctor or pharmacist, just in case.

Vitamin supplements usually won’t cause stomach problems like pain, nausea, or diarrhoea.

 

However, it’s important to note that supplements can have side effects sometimes, and stomach issues can be some of these.

 

This can happen if you’re sensitive or allergic to any of the ingredients in your supplement or simply because the supplement isn't right for you.

 

If you experience any side effects after taking a vitamin or supplement, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist right away and ask for their advice.

Yes, the NHS recommends that all breastfed babies should take a vitamin D supplement every day from the day they’re born.

 

Formula-fed babies may need to take these too, but some formulas are already fortified with vitamin D, so make sure to consult with your healthcare team about this if your baby is taking formula.

 

After six months old, your baby should start taking supplements of vitamins A, C, and D, this will continue until they turn five.

 

Again, remember to consult your healthcare team if your baby is formula-fed.
