How We Started

The origins of Centrum date back to the 1950’s when young scientist Dr. Leon Ellenbogen began studying how therapeutic levels of vitamins could potentially treat cancer patients. As a result, Ellenbogen developed a keen interest in vitamins and how they can benefit human health.

Who We Are Today

The first Centrum multivitamin launched in 1978. Since then, our brand has grown. Backed by over 40 years of science, Centrum is now the #1 doctor-recommended and #1 pharmacist recommended multivitamin brand.

A Tradition of Innovation

Centrum has always had a strong tradition of innovation. Launched as “Complete from A to Zinc,” it was the first major brand to feature key nutrients like beta-carotene, lutein, and lycopene. The launch of Centrum Silver reflected scientific advancements of the nutritional needs of people over 50. Centrum continues to innovate and build on its research heritage and leadership that are the foundations of the brand.

Our Commitment to Quality.

For a more consistent look and feel, we’ve recently redesigned the labels and cartons across our entire range of Centrum Multivitamins. This makes it easier to spot our unique design in stores. But regardless of the appearance of our packaging, our commitment to using premium ingredients and product quality remains constant.
