The goal here is to create a review so thorough that there would not be a need for you to ever look at another supplement review for this specific supplement. Therefore, if there is a section or aspect I haven’t covered but you’re interested in, let me know. And I’ll add that to the review.
Olly Women Multivitamin Review – The Overview
Olly Women Multivitamin is a multivitamin geared towards the well-being of women that is offered in the form of gummy vitamins and combines within itself the 18 essential nutrients to help active ladies thrive and fill in the gaps when eating habits are less than perfect.
To be honest, the description page (sale’s page) of this particular supplement is one of the most pleasant I’ve ever come across. And I’ve come across a lot of them.
Although by no means it is abundant with information about the supplement, it still offers a few assertions and claims.
The very essence of their message is that Olly Women Multivitamin is a supplement that is packed with the essential nutrients to nourish you daily, so you can keep doing your thing and be amazing at it.
They claim it to be a complete multivitamin. Or in other words, get this, and you’re set for the day nutrition-wise.
Then there’s also some information on what does B vitamins do, what do Antioxidants do, and what does Calcium & Vitamin D do. Additionally, there’s some info on how much of certain nutrients in terms of Percentage Daily Value are in the supplement.
For example, Vitamin D3 – 200%, Vitamin E – 100%, Vitamin B6 – 150% among other examples.
They’re said to be “Naturally Tasty – a blissful blend of juicy berries”.
Sounds great, don’t you think?
Let’s examine further.
Nutrient Forms – Very Average
Nutrient Forms determine how beneficial the nutrients are within the forms they are found in the supplement.
For example, vitamin B6 in the form of Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate is immediately available for the body and thus, for the benefits. Whereas vitamin B6 in the form of Pyridoxine Hydrochloride is subject to all kinds of conversions within the body before it can actually be used and you can benefit from it [R, R, R, R].
In some rare cases, people possess certain genes guaranteeing that in regards to some of these kinds of conversion-necessary forms it’s not possible for them. Thus, they may not benefit from such a vitamin form at all [R, R, R].
Therefore, it’s always best to get your nutrients in the most bioavailable forms (ones that are immediately available to the body for use).
As regards to the Olly Women Multivitamin, it does not do a great job within this context.
While the average and weak forms of vitamins like Vitamin C, E, B1, B6, B9, B12 all are common. There are better options available for each one of them [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Overall, nothing really bright or something to be particularly proud of here.
Nutrient Diversity And Amounts Are Below Minimum
As it was claimed on the description page of the Olly Women Multivitamin, they offer 18 essential nutrients. But I’m actually confused as to which ones do they refer to.
If we count all of the minerals and vitamins that have established Percentage Daily Value we find ourselves at number 17. If we add to that the Boron, which is also an essential mineral, we get that number 18 [R].
Whereas if we’re actually referring to essential nutrients Phosphorus shouldn’t be counted as one. I mean, it is essential for health but it’s definitely not needed to be had in (complimented with) your daily multivitamin. So, again 17 [R].
On that same note, if we add the Boron we should also add the Choline and Inositol to the total number as both of these are recognized as essential to intake daily by the Prime Daily Values [R].
Then 19 essential nutrients?
Either way, if we just go with the complete number, then it’s 20 vitamins, minerals, and additional beneficial substances, which at the end of the day, by no means is sufficient.
In truth, this means that the supplement lacks such important nutrients as Vitamin K, Magnesium, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Molybdenum, Vanadium, Iron, as well as Mixed Carotenoids.
Therefore, it shouldn’t be regarded as a complete one. Because by no means it is complete.
Even more so because of the low amounts in which the active ingredients are present in.
Many even fall short of the minimum daily requirements (commonly known as Percentage Daily Values) to not get sick with a deficiency disease with no regard to the daily values that you actually need to thrive [R, R].
For example, vitamin B1 is present in amounts of 0.38 mg. Ideally, you would want 25-50 mg, thus the supplement contains 65-132 times less than it needs to.
Also, vitamin B2 is present in very insignificant amounts – 0.43 mg. Ideally, this should also be 25-50 mg, which is 58-117 times less than it needs to.
Or take the example of Choline. The Olly Women Multivitamin contains 50 mcg of it. However, ideally, it should have 100-200 mg. One mg (milligram) is 1000 mcg (micrograms).
This means that the supplement is precisely 2000-4000 times off. Additionally, there are other similar examples.
In fact, the only nutrients in sufficient amounts for thriving are preformed vitamin A, vitamin D, B7, and Iodine. The rest 24 of the crucial ones for thriving are either not there at all or in amounts that won’t account for significant benefits.
So, are you in for thriving or just prating around?
Inositol – The Only Additional Beneficial Substance
While there are many multivitamin supplements that are actually abundant in the space of additional beneficial substances, like Rainbow Light Men’s One, Rainbow Light Women’s One, as well as many of the best multivitamin supplements, Olly Women Multivitamin is not.
The only beneficial substance that it has is Inositol (40 mcg), which I believe is one of the most beneficial ones out there.
Inositol benefits healthy brain function, as well as offer benefits in regards to combating anxiety, panic attacks, depression, as well as other types of distorted behavior and conditions [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
However, do consider this.
There is only 40 mcg of Inositol in the Olly Women Multivitamin. This is safe to say that is too low of amounts to actually instill these benefits.
Ideally, you would want 25-50 mg of Inositol in your daily multivitamin. This means that the Olly Women Multivitamin is off of the necessary amounts about 625-1250 times.
Thus, there might be some very incremental benefits on your health, however, it’s way more likely to not have any noticeable or meaningful impact at all.
So, at the end of the day, the Inositol is in the supplement purely for the sake of giving away the impression that it contains more beneficial stuff that it actually does.
It’s All Sugar – Obesity & Brain Damage Guaranteed
Although I did enjoy the webpage dedicated to the description of Olly Women Multivitamin, there is one huge problem with it.
They have listed supplement facts, however, they have left out the list of other ingredients included, otherwise known, as the additives.
I do wonder, why that is? Are they willing to hide something potentially very unpleasant from their customers?
Is there something in the supplement of Olly Women Multivitamin that they’re particularly ashamed of?
Surfing around the net suggests that this might be the case.
The Olly Women Multivitamin contains the following ingredients as additives – Glucose Syrup, Beet Sugar, Water, Gelatin, Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Coloring (from carrot, blueberry, and chokeberry juices), Natural Flavors, and Pectin.
While of these Coloring and Natural Flavors also have some possible negative consequences, Glucose Syrup and Beet Sugar are something that can’t be left unaddressed.
They will be absolutely devastating to your health.
So, these vitamins will be tasty for sure. At that same time, they’ll make you pay a high price in terms of your health. High Fructose Corn Syrup is compared with having the effects on the brain similar to drug abuse. Furthermore, it’s also known to be the root cause of obesity weight gain, cancer, liver damage, diabetes, heart disease, as well as a bunch of other incredibly harmful and undesirable health conditions [R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R, R].
Good luck, trying to be healthy or actually improving your health while also abusing this form of sugar.
On that same note, beet sugar is not as detrimental or devastating in its effects on health.
However, also this can induce obesity, depression, diabetes, heart disease, eating disorders, aggressive behavior, hyperactivity, learning difficulties, and various types of cancer among other negative outcomes [R, R, R, R, R].
Thus, going for this kind of gummy vitamins is definitely not worth for your health.
In truth, you are poisoning your brain and body more by using the Olly Women Multivitamin than improving your overall health and well-being.
By my books, this is wasted money.
Final Thoughts On Olly Women Multivitamin
I absolutely get why people are buying this supplement. It’s very likable visually. No wonder it has found its way onto Amazon Bestsellers in the multivitamin category.
However, the existing hype around it should not cloud your judgment.
It’s not a great one and will not truly benefit your health.
Sure, short-term you might feel like it’s adding some benefit and helping you pull some weight.
However, this will be very deceiving.
Furthermore, your exposure to not the healthiest additives (to say the least) is very likely to come back later to bite you even if it’s not immediately noticeable or completely apparent.
Unlike this one there are many awesome multivitamin supplements out there that offer great value and does not promise health implications through the additives that they employ. To learn more check out this article.
