The myth of multivitamins

Many Americans still rely on old-fashioned supplements,
even as better, targeted options gain ground.

Multivitamins have been popular since WWII, when they were rolled out to fight malnutrition. Today, roughly 1 in 3
Americans still take them. And while these all-in-one pills can help fill nutrition gaps, too many people misunderstand
them, assuming they’ll address specific health concerns they were never intended to fix.

Multi as cure-all: a widespread misconception

In a recent poll of 1,000 U.S. adults over 35, more than half reported using a multivitamin to address a specific health issue:

to support
their immunity

to have
more energy

to maintain a
healthy weight

to support a
good night’s sleep

to maintain a
healthy stress level

to maintain
hormone balance

This misconception means millions of Americans are taking a supplement that, by itself, is unlikely to address their
health needs—even when better options are available.
