Multivitamin/mineral (MVM) supplements contain a combination of vitamins and minerals, and sometimes other ingredients as well. They go by many names, including multis and multiples or simply vitamins. The vitamins and minerals in MVMs have unique roles in the body.
For certain health problems, specific MVMs might be helpful. For example, a study showed that a particular high-dose form of several vitamins and minerals slowed vision loss in some people with age-related macular degeneration.
Overall MVMs can help with the management of certain diseases. In many cases they help supply the body with minerals and nutrients that are lacking due to the current disease process.
