**Compared to Centrum®
The majority of the vitamins and minerals listed are good for you. However, their claims regarding boosting metabolism may not be quite right. For example, Chromium has been proven NOT to affect weight loss at all.
Chromium is believed to be an essential trace mineral. One form, chromium picolinate, has been sold as a weight loss aid for many years. It is claimed to boost athletic performance, build muscle, and promote weight loss. The Federal Trade Commission have determined these claims to be deceptive.
While chromium may have health benefits, extensive clinical trials have shown that chromium does not have an effect on weight loss. Chromium can cause side effects in many people, including everything from stomach discomfort to genetic mutations in DNA. Chromium may also interfere with other supplements or medications.
I've heard that Green Tea Extract also does not work. I'm on my way out the door right now, so I can't look into it at the moment, but will do as soon as possible.
I'm surprised One a Day has come out with this product. However, most manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon and promoting products that don't work. There are billions of dollars at stake here.
A good multivitamin can't hurt, and could help your overall health. But I would personally avoid any products that contain controversial or unproven supplements.
If you follow the WW plan and exercise, you are going to lose the weight anyway, and in a healthier way.
