How to choose a Multivitamin?

Multivitamin pills suck for a variety of reasons.

Vitamins can be classified in to 2 categories. 1. Fat soluble Vitamins: Vitamin A, D E & K variants. 2. Water soluble Vitamins: Vitamins B & C variants.

Both of them behave differently in the body. Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the body whereas water soluble are not. We don't regularly need fat soluble vitamins but water soluble are needed on a regular basis.

A multivitamin pill combines both these groups which is not the best option for their absorption in the body.

Cherry picking vitamins from whole food sources is a bad idea. Their might be several mechanisms regarding the absorption of vitamins which we still don't understand

Shady manufacturing practices are employed to produce multivitamins. Synthetic derivatives are used to extract vitamins. Below is the list of items which should be avoided in multivitamins. Look for clues on your vitamin’s label that offer insight into the origin of the vitamin. 

Vitamin A: Retinyl Palmitate
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): Thiamine Mononitrate, Thiamine Hydrochloride
Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): Riboflavin
Pantothenic Acid: Calcium D-Pantothenate
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine): Pyridoxine Hydrochloride
Vitamin B12: Cyanocobalamin 
PABA (Para-aminobenzoic Acid): Aminobenzoic Acid
Folic Acid: Pteroylglutamic Acid
Choline: Choline Chloride, Choline Bitartrate
Biotin: d-Biotin
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid): Ascorbic Acid
Vitamin D: Irradiated Ergosteral, Calciferol
Vitamin E: dl-alpha tocopherol, dl-alpha tocopherol acetate or succinate

NOTE: The “dl” form of any vitamin is synthetic.
