How Long Should it Take to See Results From Taking Vitamins?

Updated July 19, 2017

Vitamin consumers typically see results in one to three months. Individual results vary based on the health of the person consuming the vitamin. Most professionals agree that a person with a deficiency may see results faster than a healthy person, but a healthy person will still benefit from taking vitamins.

Results Will Not Be Seen at All

Some professionals argue that healthy vitamin consumers will not see any results. They claim a proper diet provides the required nutrients; therefore, excess nutrients are flushed from the system, making it pointless to take a vitamin. These professionals warn that overdosing on vitamins may even cause negative results.

Bottom Line

Vitamins fill the nutritional gaps in people's diets, but individual results vary based on the health of the consumer. Generally, results are seen within three months; however there are instances where no results are seen. Vitamin consumers should seek the advice of a medical professional.
