Examine the label of a jar of multivitamins—either one that you currently take or one that is sold in a store. Using Tables 8.2 and 8.3 in Ch. 8 (pp. 239–240, 262), and Tables 9.1 and 9.6 in Ch. 9 (pp. 288, 307–308), determine if the multivitamin would meet the recommended daily intake for adults for vitamins and minerals.
Relate the vitamin and mineral amounts in the multivitamin to your diet.
Address the following questions:
What multivitamin did you review?
What vitamins and minerals does it contain?
How much of each vitamin or mineral does it contain?
How does the content of the multivitamin you reviewed compare to the recommended daily intake for adults for vitamins and minerals?
Would taking this multivitamin every day raise your intake of a particular vitamin or mineral to near-toxic levels?
What would the consequences of toxicity of these vitamins or minerals be?
