How We Started

The science of Centrum started in the 1950’s when a young scientist at Lederle Labs, Dr. Leon Ellenbogen, became increasingly interested in vitamins and focused his research on their benefits to human health.

Drawing on discoveries made in his research, the idea for Centrum emerged. In the early 1970s, Dr. Ellenbogen and Lederle decided to create a vitamin plus mineral supplement to support nutrition and complement a healthy lifestyle. Backed by science, the first Centrum multivitamin hit the market in 1978.

Who We Are Today

The first Centrum multivitamin launched in 1978. Since then, our brand has grown. Backed by over 40 years of experience in nutritional science, Centrum is now the #1 multivitamin brand in the world.1
