Why We Recommend CanPrev Multivitamin

Although it is possible to get all the essential nutrients from food, most of us do not eat in a way that adequately provides these essential nutrients. A multi vitamin is a great way to fill in the gaps where your diet might be lacking. That being said, all vitamin supplements are not created equal.

We recommend CanPrev Adult Multi because it is free of binders, fillers, and common allergens. Some of the unnecessary ingredients contained in common brands of multi vitamins include food dyes and hydrogenated oils (trans fats).

Below is a list of the non-medicinal ingredients (fillers, allergens etc) in Centrum’s adult multi vitamins compared to CanPrev.  To the right is a comparison of the contents of the 2 vitamins.                  


Non medicinal ingredients in Centrum’s vitamin for women: Calcium carbonate, citric acid, corn starch, dibasic calcium phosphate, FD&C Red No. 40, FD&C yellow,No. 6, hypromellose, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, maltodextrin, methylcellulose, microcrystalline, cellulose, mineral oil light, modified food starch, silicon dioxide, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sodium lauryl sulfate, sorbic acid, stearic acid, titanium dioxide.

*Note that Centrum One A Day contains both calcium and iron. Calcium interferes with iron absorption and they should not be taken together.

Non medicinal ingredients in CanPrev’s Adult Multi: Vegetable-grade magnesium stearate, vegetable capsule.

In addition, most multi vitamins contain just enough of each nutrient to prevent deficiency symptoms. CanPrev’s Adult Multi contains levels of nutrients to help optimize your nutrition status so that you actually feel a difference when you take it.
