Multi-vit rule 1.
Place in some tin foil in an Oven. Heat at around 350 for 3-4 minutes if it goes black it's got Coal Tar in it, (a filler). Bin them.
Multi-vit rule 2.
Place in 2-4 inches of Vinegar. If it dissolves in 30-45 minutes, it should dissovle in the stomach.
Sediment in the bottom is Grit, anything floating on the Top is sawdust. These are fillers not active ingredients, so are not legally required to be listed.
This is a secondary rule, because if you do this first, you can't do an oven test on a dissolved multi-vit, so you'd need to use another one. If they're good, you're wasting 2 not one. one that hasn't blackened in the oven, could still be Vinegar tested, if it blackens why do the V T?
Pharmaceutical grade Multi-vits, have their ingredients listed in full, that's all that means. They might be more expensive possibly, but that doesn't guarantee no fillers or acceptable amounts of things. BEWARE of PG multi-vits.
Beware of toxic filler scare mongering.
Yrs soem people may highlight things in multi-vits you didn't know of.
I read recently about something in some called Titanium Dioxide, a filler, that therefore need not be legally stated.
Apparently a possible Cancer risk, supposedly caused Lung Cancer in Rats.
Turns out the studies were likened to a man, working with T D in an industrial environment, potentially for several hours a day, several years back to back.
Compare that to a trace or almost trace amount, in a multi-vit or similar product. You can see how the scary fearmongering vehicle can get into motion.
If concerned about certain things, research them, find out if any independant sites state hidden fillers, then if necessary, Google them to see if any are toxic and in what amounts. Most of these things probably would require exposure, of a highly prolonged industrial nature, so trace or near trace amounts once a day, won't realistically screw you up after 20 years will they?
