Blackmores Sustained Release Multivitamins and Minerals releases many of the nutrients your body requires, over a prolonged period of time.

 

Features and benefits

  • It releases many of the nutrients your body requires, over a prolonged period of time.
  • Convenient one a day dosage

How it works

Health statistics show that many Australian adults are receiving well below the RDIs of essential vitamins and minerals - particularly iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, vitamin A and some of the B group vitamins. Daily supplementation with a broad range of nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, provides nutritional insurance by helping to achieve an optimum intake for health.

The Sustained Release Multi nutrients are embedded within a cellulose gum matrix. This swells and breaks down during the digestive process, causing gradual diffusion and release of nutrients over an eight hour period.

Dosage

Adults - Take 1 tablet a day with meal, or as professionally prescribed.

Children - We recommend Blackmores Kids Chewable Multi.

Cautions

  • The recommended adult daily amount of vitamin A from all sources is 2 500 IU. Dosage: WARNING - When taken in excess of 8 000 IU vitamin A can cause birth defects. If you are pregnant, or considering becoming pregnant, do not take vitamin A supplements without consulting your doctor or pharmacist.
  • Not suitable for use by children under 15 years. Selenium is toxic in high doses. Selenium in dietary supplements should not exceed a daily dose of 100mcg.
  • Always read the label. Use only as directed.

Side Effects

None noted in the literature at the recommended dosage.
