Too much Iron in diet

should I be doing the following.

1) Taking a Muti-Vitabim on a regular basis. Especially Centrum which has 18MG of Iron.
2) Taking a Vitamin C supplement as well

I try and eat healthy and so should I be getting all this in my diet? I am on Weight Watchers, and the essential guidelines recommends a mutli-vitanim on a daily basis.

Thanks,


John

Re: Too much Iron in diet

For a man, a multivitamin without iron (eg One a Day Mens) is generaly preferable, because men need far less iron than women, and their diet almost invariabley fills their needs.

There is some rather vauge evidence that too much iron isnt good for men, but it is far from conclusive.
