How We Started

Centrum was born out of cancer research conducted in the 1950s by Dr. Leon Ellenbogen at Lederle Laboratories in Pearl River, N.Y.

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 Z,” 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. Explore Centrum’s tradition of innovation around the world.
