Occasional Upset Stomach
The gastrointestinal system, which basically handles how the body digests food (to keep things simple), may be affected if you begin to consume more nutrients than the body requires. Nothing serious, but you may experience a bit of stomach discomfort from the excess introduced into the system. Nausea from high amounts of multivitamin in your body is just a sign that you body does not require the additional nutrients found taking a daily multivitamin. At that point, it’s our jobs to listen to our bodies, because more times than not, there will be plenty of symptoms/signs providing answers to whether we actually need additional amounts of nutrients or not.
Here's a brief list of the various vitamins and minerals found in the majority of multivitamins and their possible symptoms associated from elevated levels of nutrients and the effects on the gastrointestinal system:
Iron: diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and constipation
Magnesium: diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps
Vitamin C: diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps
Zinc: nausea, gastric distress, vomiting and loss of appetite
One of the main reasons it is highly suggested to look for multivitamins that are close to 100% of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA), is because it ultimately regulates the levels that the body requires and doesn’t overload the system; which could lead to the occasional upset stomach.
There is no guarantee that those who start taking a multivitamin and have a particular deficiency would notice a difference in their level of energy.

After approximately one month, they discovered that multivitamins boosted guys' carbohydrate digestion and energy expenditure during a 10-minute workout. Females who took multivitamins reported less stress and mental fatigue; they also felt less physically exhausted after 30 minutes of activity. Additionally, some deficiencies, like an iron deficit, might lower your energy levels and make you feel lethargic and exhausted. Therefore, depending on your lifestyle or health issues, you may benefit form a daily multivitamin, which are ultimately designed to provide the nutrients in which your body is currently lacking.
