  • Government site states that: “Chromium might help you lose a very small amount of weight and body fat.” https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/WeightLoss-Consumer/
  • Johns Hopkins site states the following:

    1)      “Folic acid prevents neural tube defects in babies when women take it before and during early pregnancy. That’s why multivitamins are recommended for young women.”

    2)      Supporting 24 Hour Health claim that Pills and Capsules are not effective, John Hopkins says: “Pills are not a shortcut to better health and the prevention of chronic diseases,”

    3)      Omega-3 fatty acids (oh-may-ga three fah-tee a-sids): Healthy polyunsaturated fats that the body uses to build brain-cell membranes. They’re considered essential fats because our body needs them but can’t make them on its own; we must take them in through food or supplements. A diet rich in omega-3s—found in fatty fish, like salmon, tuna and mackerel, as well as in walnuts, flaxseed and canola oil—and low in saturated fats may help protect against heart disease, stroke, cancer and inflammatory bowel disease. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/healthy_aging/healthy_body/is-there-really-any-benefit-to-multivitamins

  • Multivitamin Effects on Weight Loss: A study published in a 2010 issue of the “International Journal of Obesity” followed 96 obese female participants to determine the effect of multivitamins and minerals on calorie expenditure. After six months, the participants who took a multivitamin supplement daily had significantly lower body weight and fat than those who took a placebo or calcium supplements. Taking a multivitamin supplement during a weight-loss program may help women control hunger and help men lose weight more efficiently than women do, according to research published in the “British Journal of Nutrition" in 2008.
Vitamin Absorbability:
  • "Your body absorbs liquid vitamins better than its pill counterparts do. In fact, the body absorbs approximately 98 percent of the vitamins and minerals contained in liquid form. However, the body only absorbs anywhere from 3 to 20 percent of the vitamins in a vitamin pill. Moreover, liquid vitamins bypass digestive processing and go directly into the bloodstream within minutes." https://www.livestrong.com/article/353383-are-liquid-vitamins-absorbed-any-better-than-pill-vitamins/
