Are multivitamins that slowly (' time released ') better than normal vitamin supplements?

Theoretically speaking the body would be able to take mega doses vitamins in better when they have a delayed-release. At high doses the recording will automatically lower into the intestine, causing an amount of vitamins will leave the body again. However, this is only the case with mega doses, at low-dose supplements it's sufficient to this during the meal.

For safety it is best to choose a supplement with up to 200% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin A and vitamin B3 (Nicotinic Acid), 300% of the recommended daily amount of vitamin B11 (folic acid) and up to 5 times the recommended daily allowance (500%) of the other vitamins per day.

Can taking multivitamin completely replace eating food?

In an emergency, though. That was demonstrated by a long-term research with patients in the hospital were fed with artificial feeding to which all the vitamins were added. Such research is also used to determine what exactly is the vitamin requirements of the body. Some vitamins from supplements is more easily absorbed than from our diet, because the vitamins in supplements in free form. Vitamin supplements are certainly no substitute for foods for optimum health; fruit and vegetables contain vitamins for example next to many other important substances, such as fibre and all kinds of bio-active substances.

How much vitamins do I need?

In England the government has set guidelines via establishing what the RDA for vitamins and minerals. RDA stands for recommended daily allowance. This quantity is so established that most of the population is assured of the right amount of a certain vitamin or mineral.
The vitamin information Office recommends that you, if necessary, to choose a supplement with 100% to 300% of the RDA. On the packaging of a supplement or food stands a ADH, but that does not distinguish between different population groups, gender and/or age. This RDA gives only an indication. This can sometimes be confusing.

An example:
A woman with a pregnancy desire has a daily supplement with 400 micrograms of folic acid. For her is that 400 micrograms is equal to 100% RDA. The RDA is 200 mcg for all other Dutch citizens. Therefore, on the packaging that 400 mcg is equal to 200% RDA.
