Multivitamins are absolutely unnecessary, unless you are treating a specific condition therapeutically.

5.) “Lack of proof that they actually work”
This one of the reasons that would make you ask the question, do multivitamins work?
Artificial nutrients or multivitamins as they are popularly called have the same chemical composition as our naturally occurring nutrients however they are very different to the way plants and animals produce them despite all the similarities, therefore your body might react to it differently to the synthetic nutrients.
Also, it’s unclear how well the body absorbs these artificial nutrients.
The reason is while consuming naturally occurring foods, you taking a whole range of other vitamins, minerals, and nutrients which aids the body in making optimal use of the given nutrients, while the same cannot be said for its artificial counterpart as they only contain the vitamin specified and nothing more than that, so it’s unlikely the multivitamins will be used the same way by the body, or in some scenarios not utilized by the body at all resulting to a total waste of money.
