Stiftung Warentest: Too much multivitamin juice can be harmful


As Stiftung Warentest now reports, a test of 22 multivitamin juices from different manufacturers provided a worrying result: Many multivitamin juices were overcrowded with vitamins and contained too little fruit flavors.

Few fruit flavors and too many synthetic vitamins
Stiftung Warentest advises consumers to drink no more than one glass of multivitamin juice per day. The proportion of fruit flavors is often too low, but the vitamin content is too high. Of the 22 juices tested, only one multivitamin juice cut with the note „very well“ and two with „Well“ from.

The main criticism of the consumer advocates is the high content of synthetic vitamins that are not derived from the fruits but artificially produced. On the whole, they would be overdosed, although smaller quantities were often indicated on the packaging. Anyone who exceeds the daily dose over a longer period, "risking damage to health". For example, one liter of multivitamin juice is significantly above the recommended daily allowance. A healthy balanced diet is enough to provide the body with all the necessary vitamins. Additional multivitamin juice would not be necessary then.

In addition, the juices tested often contained only minute amounts of exotic fruits. Because some manufacturers would only use fruit juice concentrates, the re-dilution lacked the necessary re-dilution flavors. In this case, the drink should not be considered „fruit juice“ be declared.

Too many vitamins are unhealthy
For a long time, vitamins were the alpha and omega to protect against cold and other illnesses. However, it is now known that excessively high levels of health can be detrimental. The benefit of synthetically produced vitamins, which are often taken in pills or effervescent tablets, especially in the cold season, is often questionable.

In certain life constellations, however, it may be necessary to take appropriate preparations. These include, for example, pregnancy, lactation or severe chronic diseases. In any case, medical advice should be sought before starting to take the vitamin supplements. (Ag)
