Multivitamin Men Under 50 Years
What does each tablet of our multivitamins for men under 50 contain?
The water-soluble vitamins include vitamin C, and all of the B vitamins: thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7), folate (B9) and vitamin B12.
Vitamin C can be found in peppers, broccoli, citrus fruits, strawberries, tomatoes, and green leafy vegetables. Vitamin C is lost when exposed to heat and air.
Vitamin B was initially thought to be a single substance. It wasn’t until the 1920s that the water-soluble vitamin was grouped into several different substances. B vitamins are important for the functioning of many organs and bodily systems and each one has its unique function.
Vitamins A, D, E, and K are known as fat-soluble vitamins, due to the fact that they are soluble in organic solvents and are absorbed in a way similar to that of fats.
Vitamin A only occurs only in foods of animal origin (liver, butter, milk, and eggs) However, carotenoids such as β-carotene can be converted to vitamin A in our bodies.
Vitamin D also occurs in animal products (liver, butter, fatty fish, eggs).
Vitamin E can be found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds, and whole grains.
Vitamin K1 is synthesized by plants, while vitamin K2 is synthesized by our gut bacteria. K1 is found in green leafy vegetables, fruit, cereals, dairy, and meat.
Mineral salts are the micronutrients largely responsible for structural functions of the skeleton, different regulatory functions, blood clotting, oxygen transport, and enzyme activity. Calcium and Magnesium are required in large amounts and are also called macrominerals. The minerals needed in smaller amounts are known as trace elements - these include Iron, Zinc, Copper, Se, Chromium, Iodine and Molybdenum
Coenzyme Q10, or Ubiquinone as it is also known, is found in most human cells, mainly within the heart, liver, kidney and pancreas. The coenzyme is a vitamin-like substance that was first identified in 1957. Coenzyme Q10 is naturally produced by our bodies but production levels decrease as we age. Coenzyme Q10 is commonly found in the membranes of the mitochondria - an organelle of the cell that acts as the powerhouse of the cell by producing energy (ATP)

They might be good for your body but the smell and taste/after-taste make my gag reflex kick in.
Also pretty hard to swallow, although that's a common problem for me.
Would be really great if Oxfor Vitality made a capsule version which would most likely fix all of my complaints.
I have been looking at various vitamins before and came across Oxford vitality since the measurements of their products were good.
There is a complete guide to nutrition form the W.H.O. which I researched as some suppliments dont have good measurements. (Vitamin and mineral requirements in human nutrition)
Since I know what vitamins I need and how much, there was no difference in my case other than having to take less tablets.
Obviously you won't notice a difference unless your diet lacks the nutrition you need.
I've taken vitamins for a few years now and the seem to make a difference but I wasn't expecting such a boost from the multivitamins. Very impressed.
