MULTIVITAMIN REVIEW Looking on a Centrum Ultra Men’s Tablet, the vitamin amounts are on the higher level of the daily intake but not above recommended except for the Vitamin B6 which is above the recommendation, while minerals are low or nonexistent, not within the recommendations. Centrum does meet the daily intake for vitamins but not minerals. Taking vitamins daily can greatly increase energy conversion of the nutrients carbohydrates, fat, and protein. We use the energy from these vitamins in our daily lives to function. Vitamin supplements are used to make up for the shortfall between what we get from food and what our bodies need. Although vitamins are found in all foods, what we eat might not contain all the vitamins we need. In an ideal world, we should be able to get all the nutrients we need from the foods we eat. But two dominating factors come into play that reduce the amount of vitamins and other nutrients we get from our food. These two factors are the growing conditions of our food and the aging process.
