When it comes to multivitamins, it is very difficult to judge the effectiveness on the product in terms of effect as the processes it typically assists with occur on a cellular level. That being said, if you have a deficiency in these vitamins and minerals, you may notice more common side effects like compromised immune and digestive systems etc. Supplementing with a multivitamin is more of a preventative measure to counteract deficiencies so that the bodies normal functioning can go on as usual. Think about it this way, if your body isn’t functioning correctly, how can you expect it to help build muscle or breakdown fat?
