Your Complete Guide To Multivitamins In Australia

Written by: Swisse Wellness
Swisse Wellness

To feel good and enjoy a healthy lifestyle, we need to nourish our bodies. While ensuring we get the correct nutrients through our diet is a great place to start, sometimes it can be difficult to get the balance right to consistently meet our health goals. That’s where a multivitamin can give you a little extra support.  

At Swisse, we’ve been working for over 50 years to develop quality multivitamins to suit a range of different nutritional needs. Let’s take a look at what multivitamins are, what they do and how you can choose one to support your general wellbeing. 

What is a multivitamin?

So just what is in a multivitamin? A multivitamin is a supplement with a combination of vitamins and minerals, often alongside herbs and other ingredients. They’re designed to help provide additional support daily. 

As well as tablets, multivitamins can come as powder, gummies, and in the form of capsules, depending on your preference.

What do vitamins do? 

Multivitamins help provide nutrients to the body such as vitamins and minerals, that are important for general health and wellbeing. Depending on the formula, a multi can help support specific needs like energy production, immune health, bone health, and cognitive function. The wide variety of Swisse formulations available makes it easier to match your multis to your particular needs. 

What is the right multivitamin for me?

There are a wide range of multivitamins available, so the right one will depend on your needs. It’s important to select one that contains quality ingredients. When deciding which multivitamin is best, it can be beneficial to choose one that is specifically tailored to your life stage, gender, nutritional needs, or any beauty benefits that you would like to focus on. We always recommend consulting your primary healthcare professional before you start taking any new supplements. 

All of our Swisse multis use quality ingredients to formulate premium products. Let’s take an in-depth look at what you can expect when you invest in a Swisse multivitamin.

Women’s vitamins

Do you struggle to feel energetic and maintain energy? A women’s multivitamin can be a great way to support energy production with B vitamins.

Multivitamin for women over 50

If you’re feeling like you just don’t have the energy you used to, you’re not alone. As we age, our bodies need a different level of support. If you’re over 50 years of age and are looking for a multivitamin to support your health, look for products containing ingredients that can address specific lifestyle changes. Things like B vitamins for energy production, zinc for immune health , and folic acid to support brain function are a few of the areas that may need the most support. Vitamin D is also a key active ingredient as it supports the absorption of calcium as bone health is important in ageing adults.

Multivitamins for men

Men have different nutritional needs to women, so a targeted multi for men can help support general health and wellbeing of men might provide the extra support.

As men age, they need a different range of vitamins and minerals due to changes in body composition and lifestyle. A multivitamin is a great first step to help maintain energy production and vitality with B vitamins, support brain function with folate and reinforce healthy immune system function with vitamin C.

Vegan multivitamins 

If you follow a vegan diet, it can be hard to make sure you’re getting the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that you need. While it’s possible to lead a healthy and active life on a vegan diet, care should be taken to ensure you’re consuming the right amounts of everything, especially when it comes to vitamin B12. Easily find what you may have been missing with a multi that goes the extra mile. 

Swisse multivitamins to aid a vegan diet:

  • Similar to our regular multivitamins, Swisse has created Swisse Ultivite Vegan Women’s Multivitamin and Swisse Ultivite Vegan Men’s Multivitamin, to ensure targeted nutritional support. Both formulas may relieve tiredness with 600 micrograms of  B12 and iron to relieve tiredness and fatigue. The women’s formula contains an extra boost of biotin to support hair health and calcium to support bone health, while the men’s formula contains higher levels of zinc to support reproductive health.

Multivitamins for children

Kids are generally fussy eaters who don’t love their veggies, so adding a multivitamin to their day is a great way to provide additional support for their general health and wellbeing. It’s important to choose a targeted multi for children to get the level of support for growing little bodies, with a range of vitamins and minerals that help them thrive. Making sure they taste good will also make it something kids will look forward to! 

Swisse multis that kids will love:

  • Formulated with all of the vitamins and nutrients important for growing bodies, our Swisse Ultivite Children’s multivitamins come in mixed berry and tropical flavoured gummies, tasty orange flavoured chewable tablets, and delicious strawberry chewables.
