What to Look for in a Multivitamin According to a Registered Dietitian

Wandering through the vitamin and supplement aisle in the grocery store can be especially overwhelming these days. It is important to remember that multivitamins are intended to serve as a dietary supplement to fill any gaps you may have from your diet, but are also used to treat nutrient deficiencies and increased nutrient needs. With countless different brands, doses, and combinations it is hard to know what exactly you should be taking. 


When it comes to choosing the multivitamin and supplements that are right for you, here are a few factors to keep in mind. 


Third-Party Tested

Keep in mind that the FDA does not have the authority to approve or disapprove supplements for safety and efficacy. Because of this, it is beneficial to choose a supplement that is third-party tested. To ensure that your supplements are safe and to avoid any contaminated substances, look for a supplement that is tested by a third party by having a USP or NSF certification. 


The GenoPalate personalized supplements are third-party tested which ensures the product actually contains what it says it does, and further is held to the highest standards in quality.  


Safe Ingredients

When it comes to safety regulations on supplements, it is important that companies follow current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). This ensures that at least the minimum requirements are met for methods, facilities, and controls during the manufacturing process. This helps make sure that the product is safe to consume. 


The GenoPalate personalized supplements have the stamp of approval by the current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs). 


No Additives
Since many supplements often contain unnecessary ingredients, it is important to know what exactly is in the products you are taking. Make sure your supplements are free of chemical fillers and other unnecessary additives. The GenoPalate personalized supplements are free from chemical fillers and additives. 


In order to get in all the nutrients you would need from individual supplements, you would be taking upwards of 20 pills each day. Having all the nutrients you need in a few capsules offers convenience and increases the likelihood you are taking them consistently. 


Additionally, for many people remembering to replenish their multivitamins and supplements can be difficult. Since the key to seeing benefits from supplements is consistency, it is important to remember to not only take them daily but also refill them once your supply runs out. Because of that, GenoVit is a subscription service where supplements are delivered straight to your door in three-month increments so you will never be without your multivitamins!


Personalized Supplements
If you are interested in a more personalized option, GenoVit is able to take into account your individual genetic needs, sex, age, and eating habits. For GenoVit, our line of genetic-based personalized supplements, you’ll submit your DNA sample to our lab via a prepaid shipping label. Once the lab receives and processes your DNA sample, you’ll be able to view your personalized supplement formula online in your account. And don’t worry—the DNA test is a simple cheek swab to gather saliva, so it’s quick and painless! 


From there, you can order your personalized supplements to be delivered straight to your door. While traditionally, you might go to your local grocery store or drugstore each month to pick up your multivitamins, GenoVit is a personalized supplement subscription service, meaning your multivitamins will be delivered to you on a recurring basis so you never miss a beat.


If you’re ready to ditch your one-size-fits-all drugstore multivitamin, order our at-home DNA test or upload your existing DNA data to begin your personalized nutrition journey. In just a few weeks, you’ll have access to your unique personalized supplement formula
