Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
A good multivtamin mineral supplement should contain the vitamins and minerals required by the body in adequate quantities.
It is not meant to treat any deficiencies but to supply adequate amounts to maintain good health.
There are several brands that meet these criteria. My personal choice is Centrum.
