Q: Some of the ingredient levels are more than the nutrient reference value, why is this?
A: Centrum products are classed as food supplements and are designed to complement a person’s diet.
Having more than 100% of the NRV should not cause any concern, because the levels do not exceed the recommended Safe Upper Level (SUL) for each vitamin. Water-soluble vitamins - such as the B group vitamins and vitamin C - cannot be stored by the body to any great extent, so if you take in more than your body needs, they are simply excreted.
