Centrum

Product Information

Centrum is a complete multivitamin and mineral formula complete from A to Zinc. Other multivitamin brands only have Vitamin C and B-complex but Centrum has 30 vitamins and minerals, 15 of which are at 100% U.S. RDA.

Indication and Usage

The Centrum Center for Nutrition Science believes that a multivitamin/mineral supplement is a rational and scientifically-based approach to help ensure adequate nutrient intake for those people who are not consuming the recommend number of servings from each of the food groups as outlined in the Food Guide Pyramid.

Furthermore, circumstances exist where particular lifestyle groups are nutritionally vulnerable and may benefit from taking a multivitamin/ mineral supplement or the like. For instance, children, women of child-bearing age, pregnant or lactating women, tobacco users and the elderly are populations that have higher vitamin and mineral requirements due to increased need or decreased absorption of certain nutrients. A multivitamin/mineral supplement can serve as an “insurance policy” against micronutrient deficiencies for some of these people and others who do not eat a balanced diet.

  • Adults – 1 tablet per day

Available in:

  • Tablet form that is individually packed in foil, sold in 100’s or 12’s boxes

Since Incremin’s iron content is in ferric pyrophosphate form, gastrointestinal disturbance is minimized. The metallic taste inherent in iron is efficiently masked as well by its cherry flavor.

Indication and Usage

Iron is the lifeblood of the body. If there isn’t enough iron available, hemoglobin production is limited and the production of red blood cells is affected. Red blood cells are needed to transport oxygen throughout the body, hence lack of iron results in less oxygen reaching the cells and tissues.

For a lot of growing children, iron is an important nutrient because the period when a child’s iron requirement is high coincides with the period of iron storage depletion. With the limited iron content of the foods available, iron supplementation becomes necessary. Unless they get the amount of iron that they need, most children are likely to develop iron deficiency anemia (IDA).

Iron deficiency Anemia is prevalent in the country. Latest findings from the 2003 National Nutrition Survey of the Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) points at a 32% prevalence rate for children 6 months to 5 years old, meaning 1 out of 3 children has it.

The most common symptoms of Iron Deficiency Anemia among children are fatigue and weakness, pale skin and mucous membranes, rapid heartbeat, irritability, decreased appetite, and dizziness.
