V&M Elite Review
What You Should Know
Everyone needs to eat a diet rich in vitamins and minerals. Dieters, bodybuilders and athletes are a unique breed that may require more supplementation due to a lack of vitamin and mineral rich foods in the diet. V&M Elite by All American EFX is a vitamin and mineral complex created for “hard-training” athletes who do not have the time or calories in the diet to eat well-balanced meals. Customers can purchase V&M Elite from All American EFX. The supplement does not have a free trial offer. Some multivitamins have been known to cause stomach discomfort, vomiting and diarrhea so a free trial would be a good idea for the company to offer. There are no testimonials on the website to offer customers insight into these or other potential side effects.

It is important to note that the ingredient list is comprised of more than common vitamins and minerals used in over-the-counter multivitamins. These ingredients are used to support muscle growth, prevent muscle fatigue and speed up recovery time between workouts. Iron is also included in V&M Elite. This means the product is not safe for children. Iodine could interfere with thyroid function, especially in patients taking thyroid medications or those allergic to iodine.
Will the V&M Elite help the bodybuilder increase muscle mass and size? On a cellular level, the vitamins and minerals included will have little direct effect on muscle growth, but the formula will support whole body health. Most of the vitamins in multivitamins in general have a short life in the body. B vitamins, in particular, wash out of the body in urine within a few hours of taking the supplement. V&M Elite is taken once per day, so after a few hours many of the vitamins will be gone.
V&M Elite sells for $24.99 per bottle. This is much more expensive than other comparable vitamin supplements.
- Supplements help support body functions.

V&M Elite may provide necessary vitamins and minerals to bodybuilders, but the formula contains ingredients that dieters do not need. The iron and and iodine could also be a concern for younger users and users with thyroid problems.
