Going from the bottom up:
- The children multivitamins and teen formulas are obviously lower doses as minors need less of the daily multivitamin than adults do partially due to their smaller size.
- The men’s multivitamins typically are the standard multivitamins with some added nutrients for common “men’s concerns” such as prostate support, sexual health, and things of that nature.
- The women’s multivitamins are along the same lines that they are the standard multiple plus some added nutrients for hormonal support and a little added boost of some nutrients like Iron that women need more of than men.
Multivitamins for seniors are where it gets changed a bit, though... Seniors tend to need more help with absorption and require a different variety of those basic vitamins and minerals, but many also need extra nutrients for vision, brain, energy, and immune system support among other things. Because of that, most multivitamins for older adults will have a few different tweaks for the basic nutrients plus the added nutrients, although the variety of nutrients added will vary with each brand.
