Good for the very, very tiny minority of people in the UK who are deficient in certain vitamins (although the NHS will sort you our for free, of course).
A girl doctor was telling me over the weekend that all vit supps do is make your bodily fluids taste nicer!

Have you tasted vitamin supplements, they taste like death.

She actually believed that? (_;)
good depending on what minerals are actually included. I get these from ebay where they include around 30 minerals which is pretty cool

regarding absorbtion, it's well known that tablet vits are poorly absorbed (10% or so), but it's still better then nothing.
These bottles are showing at £1.00 online for me and they're also showing as 3 for the price of 2.

An in fact if you look at the picture in the OP, the red stripe on shelf is one that indicates all vitamins are 3 for 2.

Here's a link.

Fools gold. No good to man nor beast. The only possible benefit from consuming these poor, lowest of low quality nonsense pills is the potential for a placebo effect. You would get more nutrients from consuming your own waste.

She was telling me, not the other way around.
For anyone who hasn't noticed, it seems this was indeed a major misprice.

There was a £1.00 label for these in my local store yesterday, but there was no stock. Today there is stock, but the price is now £10.30. It's also now £10.30 on the link I provided above.
MultiVIts differ in how well they're absorbed. These might be alright, or they could be rubbish. Hard to know without someone doing an experiement on one. So can't dismiss them out of hand. MultiVits are good for plugging any gaps in vitamin intake, but certainly no replacement for daily fruit and veg, as they are much better absorbed in natural form. Bigger name brands like Sanatogen and Centrum are more reliable to be better absorbed but then cost a lot more. I would say to look for ones with very high RDAs in all vits except vitamin A (that one is bad in high doses). Generally RDAs of the B vits in the 20,000-30,000% range is fine.
RDA is a fairly meaningless number though, it can be a minimum, a target, or a maximum, but doesn't say which. As far as I know, vit A is the only maximum, rest are generally minimums.
Multivits are a good health insurance imho. The problem is that unless you're particularly deficient, it's hard to measure the result in isolation. But then whats more important than health, and for a couple pence a day, to at least have a chance of improving it, is surely worth it.

The current scientific evidence suggests that vitamin supplements make you die young:

Hardly a 'good health insurance'
