Because of the diet in developing countries is often unbalanced and deficient in vitamins, multi vitamin preparations are commonly prescribed. A simple method and equation for assessing multivitamins are proposed, and the results of a survey of 24 preparations obtained in Iran are presented. A table shows the order of importance which manufacturers place on vitamins and relative requirements of each vitamin by special groups of people. Health personnel are challenged to examine available products and prescribe those which meet the patient's needs.
