Centrum Select 50+ is based on an age-adjusted formula to help meet the nutritional needs of adults 50 years of age and older.

*Product formulations and claims vary per market.
People over 50 want to maximize their vitality and minimize the risk for chronic illness. Although a balanced diet satisfies the majority of vitamins and mineral needs, aging generates specific requirements for certain micronutrients that may not be met through food alone.
Compared to food alone, MVM use in middle-aged and older adults was linked to a higher nutrient intake and lower prevalence of inadequacies.2
Nearly all adults may benefit from regular consumption of a multivitamin supplement that is life-stage-specific in partnership with a healthy eating plan.3
Differences in nutrient requirements vary between genders and across the life span as specified by various global health organizations and national nutrition boards. Several international groups, including the US National Academy of Sciences, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations/ World Health Organization, and the UK British Nutrition Foundation distinguish micronutrient needs by age and by gender because of differences in body composition and energy utilization.4,5,6
