The B vitamins positively impact numerous heart functions and systems, from the cardiovascular to brain and blood formation. Vitamin B 3 for instance may assist with energy production of cells (from sugar stored in muscles, along with vitamin B1 and vitamin B2) as well as to the health of the nervous system. Choline is usually grouped with B vitamins, although it is not included in the B Vitamin Complex. Among many benefits, it serves as a precursor to the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine, which works to support short term memory, sustain attention and sensory perception upon waking up.
Vitamins A, C, and E found in Mega Multi Energizer provide antioxidant support, hence benefiting the immune and the central nervous system. According to the manufacturer, the vitamins and minerals are mixed in a natural base of Gotu Kola and Guarana, natural tonics and energy boosters, with additional Gingko Biloba, which may support alertness and memory. These herbal ingredients may be associated to harmful side effects, such as dizziness, headache, nausea, vomiting, restlessness, nervousness etc. Also, both Guarana and Ginkgo Biloba contain coffee, hence caution is recommended to caution sensitive individuals.

Multivitamin and mineral formulations are generally recommended to supplement diets, especially since modern people tend more and more to adopt inappropriate eating habits and patterns (as result of hectic, overstressed lifestyles). Also, the quality of our food in terms of nutrient value seems to be degrading leading to various health problems.
Mega Multi Energizer promises to deliver increased energy throughout the day through a cocktail of essential vitamins and minerals. And while we may be tempted to believe this if we were to consider the ingredient list, there are no consumer reviews or other evidence to support the benefit claims.
Imbalances in vitamins and minerals (be they deficiencies or surpluses) may have serious health implications. This is why it is important to start using a multivitamin supplement at the recommendation of a healthcare specialist.
