Centrum Wellness Packs For Women Reviewed

In 2021 Centrum started selling Centrum Wellness Packs for Women. They sell 5 different formulations all based on age groups: 20+, 30+, 40+, 50+ and 60+.   All of the packs contain 4 pills in each vitamin pack.  Below is a comparison chart of the assorted formulas.  You will also find some insights and observations about these Centrum Wellness Packs for Women.

Centrum Wellness Packs For Women Reviewed

One thing in common with all 5 of the Centrum Wellness Packs for Women is that the same basic multivitamin is found in all of the formulations.  This basic multivitamin has 1,000 IU of Vitamin D and 90 mg of Vitamin C. Only 3 of the packs contain additional Vitamin D.  This is also true of Vitamin C, only 3 of the packs have additional Vitamin C beyond what is already in the basic multivitamin.  

You may find it somewhat confusing trying to understand the criteria used to determine why a supplement is found in one age-related formulation and not another.  For example, 3 out of the 4 pills in the 20+ pack and 50+ pack are exactly the same, interesting that the formulations are so similar despite being separated by two full age groups.

Another example, the two age groups farthest apart 20+ and 60+ are the only packs with important Omega-3 Fish Oil. Not sure why these key nutrients are missing from the other packs.  

A single collagen tablet is found in two of the formulations. However, the dosing is somewhat of a head scratcher.  Collagen supplementation often involves taking multiple tablets daily. For example if you look at a bottle of the popular YouTheory Collagen supplement you will see they suggest taking 6 tablets a day.  Both the Centrum Wellness Packs For Women 30+ and Centrum Wellness Packs For Women 40+ packs contain a collagen tablet...just one tablet.  

None of the Centrum Wellness Packs packs contain a probiotic.

None of the packs contain lutein & zeaxanthin, two nutrients often found in vision support formulas. 

None of the packs contain elderberry, a powerful antioxidant that may boost your immune system and may shorten the duration of colds*.

Conclusion: These packs do a better job of providing additional key nutrients than a simple multivitamin but the criteria for what makes a key nutrient “important” for one age group but is missing from another is a little baffling. 

I would like for consumers to compare any of the Centrum Wellness Vitamin Packs to the Planet 3 Vitamin Packs formulation.  Below is a chart of some of the key features of each vitamin pack.

 

My biased opinion is that the Planet 3 Vitamin Pack formulation provides a wider spectrum of key nutrients.  However, the Centrum Wellness Packs seem to be lower priced and cheaper than the premium supplements found in Planet 3 Vitamin Packs ($29.99) formulation.

If low cost is the most important factor, perhaps the Centrum Wellness Packs are a better choice. However, if you're looking for an overall broader range of nutrients and a more customized formulation aimed at both women and men, the Planet 3 Vitamin Packs in my opinion is a better choice.
