Is Geritol® multivitamin time-released?

 

geritol-time-to-dissolveNo, Geritol® multivitamin is not a time-release multivitamin. However, Geritol is specially formulated so that the nutrients are released at a steady rate.

 

A “time-release” caplet or capsule usually has a chemical coating that slowly releases the nutrients over a prolonged period of time. Geritol multivitamin does not have a time-release chemical coating.

 

It is worth noting that the type of iron used in Geritol is carbonyl iron, a gentler form of iron when compared to more common iron salts because its absorption is naturally regulated by your body. This prolonged absorption is due to the form of iron and not a chemical coating and helps make it gentler on your system than other irons.
