Centrum Multivitamin/Multimineral Supplement

1 or 2 Centrums daily

1 or 2 Centrums daily

I recommend Centrum for people on the Ketogenic Mediterranean Diet.  Since the composition of plain Centrum could change at any time (or be concocted differently in non-U.S. countries), I’m recording the contents of the current U.S. product.   Here are the component amounts with “% Daily Values” in parentheses. 

U.S. government authorities recommend Percent Daily Values for average non-pregnant healthy adults eating 2,000 calorie a day.

Vitamin A 3,5000 IU (70%), Vitamin C 60 mg (100%), Vitamin D 400 IU (100%), Vitamin E 30 IU (100%), Vitamin K 25 mcg (31%), Thiamin 1.5 mg (100%), Riboflavin 1.7 mg (100%), Niacin 20 mg (100%), Vitamin B5 2 mg (100%), Folic Acid 400 mcg (100%), Vitamin B12 6 mcg (100%), Biotin 30 mcg (10%), Pantothenic Acid 10 mg (100%), Calcium 200 mg (20%), Iron 18 mg (100%), Phosphorus 20 mg (2%), Iodine 150 mcg (100%), Magnesium 50 mg (13%), Zinc 11 mg (73%), Selenium 55 mcg (79%), Copper 0.5 mg (25%), Manganese 2.3 mg (115%), Chromium 35 mcg (29%), Molybdenum 45 mcg (60%), Chloride  72 mg (2%), Potassium 80 mg (2%), Boron 75 mcg, Nickel 5 mcg, Silicon 2 mg, Tin 10 mcg, Vanadium 10 mcg.

Why Centrum?

It’s been around for years and  has a good reputation.  It’s widely available at a reasonable price.  This is not a paid endorsement, in case you’re wondering.  Let me know if you think my faith is misplaced.
